10 Good Guys Who Are Major-League Jerks

Sometimes good guys are actually “good” guys. They treat people well, they help old ladies across the street, their good intentions are matched by their positive (not necessarily chipper or anything, but at leastnice) personality.

And sometimes good guys are just jerks. Keep reading »

Assssss youuuuuuuu wiiiiiiishhhhhhh!

You guys, can you believe that “The Princess Bride” is 25 years old? It’s easily one of my favorite movies — and, actually, I really love the book too — that I can watch over and over again.

10 Reasons Anna Kendrick Is Better Than You

When it comes to Anna Kendrick, believe the buzz. The girl is all that and a bag of chips. Girl crush alert!

Chances are, you’ve been hearing her name a lot lately, and it’s no surprise. From “What to Expect When You’re Expecting” to “ParaNorman” to “End of Watch,” she’s had a lot of flicks make way to the cinema this year, and she’s not slowing down just yet.

Her latest is the college a cappella competition movie “Pitch Perfect,” in which she not only puts her acting chops on the table but also gives her vocal chords some serious exercise. With her sharp wit, self-deprecating sensibility and sheer talent, the girl’s going places at lightning speed (she may even be the newest badass of the “Captain America” franchise).

So, to extol the Anna Kendrick-ness of Anna Kendrick, here are 10 reasons why she’s better than you, us and just about everybody else. Read more…

4 Steps To A Pitch Perfect Relationship

I loved ”Mamma Mia!”, the ABBA movie. I loved “Hairspray.” So of course I also loved “Pitch Perfect.” Watching a group of misfits perform everything from Ace of Base to Rihanna together is infectiously, vicariously fun. But aside from the singing (though the singing is so good!) this is a story of unexpected friendships and life-changing love.

The plot is simple: Aubrey (Anna Camp), the Queen Bee of the Barden Bellas, an all-women’s college a cappella group, desperately tries to revive the girls’ reputation after an unfortunate incident at last year’s finals competition: You only have to YouTube “a cappella barf” to find out what that is. Will they or won’t they triumph in finals this time around? Keep reading »

Yep, “Pitch Perfect” Is The New “Bring It On”

At first glance, “Pitch Perfect” and “Bring It On” have very little in common.

One’s about a group of girls who are misfits among the misfits — apparently, there is a social hierarchy among glee clubs, and they’re at the very bottom — and the other is full of pretty, popular girls with shiny hair and teeth flipping around in cute cheerleader outfits. Both are the kind of movies that, on paper, sound really silly and kind of embarrassing but prove to be incredibly satisfying and fun to watch by yourself or a gang of friends.

Cheerleading and glee club have more in common than you’d think, or, for that matter, than what most high schoolers would like to think. Both are highly competitive activities most people think are a waste of time, but they actually take a lot of practice and talent. Both require matching outfits and strong personalities, which inevitably leads to lots of drama. And, sometimes, these activities lead to injuries and/or projective vomiting. Read more…
