Know what a comfort movie is? It’s like comfort food, only it’s a movie. It’s a movie I could watch when I feel nothing or when I’m lonely, then I’m happy. I’d like to think my old comfort movie is Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 because I used to watch it when I get depressed coz there’s nothing else good to watch on my inventory. But now, yes it’s freaking Pitch Perfect.
Know what this movie is? Pitch Perfect is this movie where A Cappella Singing is like Cheerdance for gays and gals, or as football for Estelle’s American boys, or as basketball for Pinoys. You get it? Or, Pitch Perfect is this movie where A Cappella Singing is hip; it’s like a sport for nerds yet they aren’t too doomed they come quite cool actually. So you see, there’s much A Cappella singing of quite cool songs, great arrangements, great vocals, great choreography, and this whole mix of wicked wit and humor and all. It’s perfect actually. Like it’s amazing, it’s just amazing, to quote this night DJ from Killerbee.
Well, I’ve known first of this movie from Cheyenne. She was bugging me of how great this movie is. She was singing “I saw the sign” like the Philippine National Anthem and I took this a great sign that I should really watch this damn movie. And not just that, she had all the great songs so she shared them with me, and what bought me really was this “Just A Dream xxx Just the way you are” mash-up. IT WAS SO COOL EVEN JUST HEARING IT. Suddenly I got depressed coz how could I have missed watching this gem before others did. But it was okay coz I watched it either way later on. I got my copy from Janine who is my classmate that I remember when I got my copy from her she had Ana’s speaker (who’s also my classmate) so we could watch the musical numbers while blaring the corridors at lunch.
Anyway, I’ll hit my favorite parts:
Remember that very first scene before the names and waves would swipe as their sort of introduction? You know there are these announcers and these women about to sing and they sang after the beep and then the one in front pukes? Hahaha, it was funny!
I don’t remember puking like that in my life but I had some gross moments like that. I remember I was feverish for some time before I was so weak I did vomit too so gross I can tell. Then I felt my throat quite sore, my stomach sour, and my eyes teary.
But I think it’s quite cool you know. I’m like Sam in Perks! I wanna have Bulimia but I surely am a BULIMIST!!! I believe in Bulimia!!!!
2. WE WELCOME THE FAT AMY!!!!
Remember that scene at the fair with Fat Amy? Well Fat Amy is introduced as a character you know. By the way the actress was Rebel Wilson. Wikipedia says she’s an Australian actress, writer and producer who loved Mathematics in high school, studied law and arts (theatre and performance) in college, got malaria while in South Africa after stationed there for some scholarship, and had hallucinations of herself winning an Oscar’s best actress trophy!! So then she decided to be an actress!
Anyway, Fat Amy was hilarious coz she did these crazy things while matching the pitch. She said she was the best singer in Tazmania with a “T”!!!
3. SINCE YOU’VE BEEN GONE AUDITIONS!!!!
Cynthia Rose, our lessy friend, auditions first droping a zoom-zoom-zoom-zoom-zoom beat!!! Then, who would have thought she was an amazing belter after all! Then the wack continues with other auditionees whom Simon wouldn’t give a Yes had it been X Factor, go watch again!!!!
4. THAT CHEESEBALL ABOUT MOVIESS!!!
Remember that scene where the Loverboy who I did not bother search for the name or didn’t get the name but I’d call him Loverboy here, joins Becca on the grass he tosses these films E.T., the Breakfast Club etc. coz he says these movies have the best movie scores and he wants to be a movie scorer one day? Well it was an interesting sight you see. The lines were utter cheeseballs but they were great! I won’t do my research coz it’s tiring and it’s cuter what I have in mind:
Loverboy: “What the hell is wrong with you? Not liking movies is like not liking puppies!”
Becca: “Movies are fine. They just bore me, I just can’t make it to the end.”
5. YOU SPINNING MY HEAD RIGHT ROUND RIGHT ROUND!
That was one great number from the Treblemakers!
4. FAT AMY GOT HIT!!!
Fat Amy pumps up gas and the bad boys of Treblemakers see the Bellas’ bus. The lead vocalist says hey that’s Fat Amy I’d attack her with a burrito!! Fat Amy gets hit, acts up so hurt but don’t worry coz Cynthia Rose rescues her. Hahaha. Fat Amy is such a homophobe she recovered in split second just not to get resuscitated by Cynthia.
Of course the treble makers need to be the loser in the end coz the Barden Bellas need to win! For them to lose lead vocalist who’s funny and fat goes to do backup vocals for John Mayer, hangs up and does not join the Trebles for the Nationals. So Becca’s Loverboy does lead, and they hire a new Treble, it’s the Star Wars-slash-Magician nerdie! Boy nerdie can sing I reassessed my loathe for that Magic in Me song. I didn’t really loathe the song before the movie actually just that I got the song in my list for a long time that I’ve heard it over and over since high school and we all know high school isn’t a perfect era of our lives.
But I won’t spoil the fun. Back to fun.
WOOOOOOWWWW BARDEN BELLAS!!!!! That’s ten songs in one number!!! SPELL TACKY!!! T-A-C-K-Y!!! And it was GREAAAAAAAAT!!!! I loved it.
I love my comfort movie Pitch Perfect. Let’s go watch it again.
