Jojo Rabbit (2019)

Happy New Year everybody! We made it! 2020, can you believe it? Given the way of the world in recent years, the irony is not lost on me that my first review of the decade is for a film set in Nazi Germany. I was hoping, however, that Taika Waititi would be able to bring…

Cats (2019)

Okay, before we begin, I need to get something off my chest. As stated on this blog many times in the past, I am a true bastard for a musical, but I must admit that Cats is something that I have never been able to get my head around. I’ve seen it on stage and…

Pitch Perfect 3 (2017)

Pitch Perfect 2 (2015)

Back in the very earliest weeks of Oh! That Film Blog, one of my first reviews was a brief and rather pessimistic take on the first Pitch Perfect movie at the end of 2012. Though I did not appear to particularly enjoy the film upon its release, several repeat viewings in the intervening years have…

Pitch Perfect (2012)

Now, just as I’d begun to remember what songs sounded like when sung by their original artists, comes Picture Perfect. It’s tempting to describe this film as Glee meets Bridesmaids but it’s far less cheesy and far less funny…
