Major Spoilers Question Of The Day: Pitch Perfect Edition

by

Lately, I’ve been in a mood to watch movies, and since there’s pretty much no chance that I’ll be venturing out to our local theatre on a holiday weekend, that means I’ve been perusing the greatest hits of 2012 current in rotation on my pay cable channels.  What I’ve discovered is that Emma Stone makes a pretty fine Gwen Stacy, Katherine Heigl makes a pretty terrible Stephanie Plum and Argo, while a serviceable thriller, was somewhat annoying by the end of the whole affair.  Most interesting of all, despite warnings that a 40-ish comic nerd from the Midwest wouldn’t have any use for ‘Pitch Perfect’, my recent fourth pass-through of the film was met with nothing but enjoyment, regardless of popular opinion.  I’m a firm believer in experiencing stories for one’s self, which leads us to today’s counterfactual query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) recalls being told that he was far too old for comics at the ripe old age of 11, and look how true THAT turned out to be, asking: What pop culture did you find yourself loving even after people told you it wasn’t any good?
