The very idea of a film about the struggles of an all-female collegiate a-capella group is enough to send most people running for cover. But trust us when we say this is no mere Glee cash-in. Sure, there's singing (and plenty of it). But instead of overwrought emotional guff, 30 Rock writer Kay Cannon gives us brilliant characters and no end of genuinely great gags.

Unsurprisingly, the Blu-ray's DTS-HD MA 5.1 soundtrack is itself 'pitch perfect' when it comes to the film's musical numbers. And it's supported by an equally impressive 1080p encode, plus some fun extras – including a pair of lively chat-tracks.
