The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
4,329 films were submitted to the 2012 Cannes Film Festival. This blog had 21,000 views in 2012. If each view were a film, this blog would power 5 Film Festivals
It’s scary how fast movies are released on DVD now. Pitch Perfect was released to nationwide theaters less than three months ago, and it’s already out on DVD and Blu-ray, just in time to be stuffed into stockings. (Do DVDs qualify as stocking stuffers? Awkward shape. Like an anaconda swallowed a book.) Anyway this post introduces my DVD reviews, which will probably help me be lazy and save money. I’ll write these about movies I kind of wanted to see, but was unwilling to pay the full theater price for.
First up is the musical teen comedy. Pitch Perfect is a sassy little thing. It’s Bring It On and Mean Girls with a few musical interludes thrown in, or what would have happened if Disney’s High School Musical script had gotten stolen by Seth McFarlane. Or to put it in television terms, it’s, uh, Glee. With a slightly more mature TV parental guidance rating.
