Review in SMS – Pitch Perfect

19 11 2012

ONCE IN a while a movie comes along that restores your faith in the fact that a celluloid treat can just be that – a treat – and not exactly an excruciating cerebral challenge that can burn all the calories from your two slices of pepperoni pizza… long before you’ve actually taken the last bite.

PITCH PERFECT, starring Anna Kendrick (to me of “Up in the Air” fame, not exactly “Twilight”) is exactly that!  Even in the age of Glee and Smash on TV, this movie still bursts with freshness and excitement, matched only by the beating of my heart, threatening to leap off of my chest.

Anna Kendrick, whose career has been part critical acclaim, part commercial sugar, is the movie’s certified star.  I didn’t think of her as a singer before, though the fullness in her sometimes chirpy voice should’ve clued me in.  The many songs bring to life the movie’s title, but nothing as much as Bruno Mars’ “Just The Way You Are” did.

Well, until they topped that with a finale song even I didn’t see coming.  It’s true about the movies, “the endings are always the best!”
