Here you go everyone! Here’s the latest and greatest (title pending) to help get you through your week!
In this episode, Mr Tanski and I review all three of this week’s new releases, “Taken 2”, “Frankenweenie”, and “Pitch Perfect”!
And then for this week’s featured discussion, inspired by the “Taken” franchise, Tank and I turn our attention to “Revenge Films”. It should be a dark and serious discussion, but be sure to tune in for the curveball that Tank throws into the middle of the discussion. For what starts out as a pretty standard discussion of a sub-genre, we take a huge left turn and wind up cracking ourselves up. Don’t miss it!

The central plot of “Pitch Perfect” has been done so often now that I’m going to start calling it “The ‘Sister Act’ Plot”. Random band/choir/and in this case, competitive a capella group, has become stale and set in their ways, and then a new member with fresh ideas insists on shaking things up and a power struggle ensues on the way to the championship/big event at the finale. I’ve seen that plot 600 times, in fact, this is the second time this year (the first being “Joyful Noise”).
In addition to the been there done that structure, “Pitch Perfect” is also filled with really broad comedic characters, and then peppered with a cappella group competitive routines… which, you can imagine, aren’t my cup of tea.
Still, the charms of the cast, and the humor that does land overcomes the weaknesses enough to tip the balance slightly in “Pitch Perfect”‘s favor.
