Excerpt: Charlie(Logan Lerman) is in freshman year where he is not accepted for first, but then two seniors, Sam(Emma Watson) and Patrick(Ezra Miller) help him and introduce him to the real world... I am not going to an American school, so I can not say something about freshman year or my high-school experience. But still I can find some similarities to the character of Charlie and me. I think nearly everyone who has been through, or still is in teenage can do that.
Excerpt: The Perks of Being a Wallflower is an adorable movie. It is so adorable because it is so relatable, capturing the good and bad of high school in a nut shell. Everyone knows what it was like to go to school (I hope), and have experienced what is portrayed so delicately in this film. I read the book to this film, and I must say that the book is a lot more explicit, but it's beautiful.
Summary: I really love this movie. The book is one of those things you appreciate the most at a certain age, or a certain point in your life, and I think the movie is no different. However, if there was one thing I didn't like about the film, it's that at times Patrick could be a little....too flamboyant. In the book, I didn't even find out that he was gay until it said so, but in the movie you can tell right off the bat that he is.
Excerpt: Rarely does a cast come together as well as they did in Perks of Being a Wallflower. When you get such amazing performances out of young actors - it makes me think that the future of Hollywood is in good hands. Logan Lerman, Emma Watson and Ezra Miller all give outstanding performances - and the supporting cast, from Paul Rudd as the inspirational English teacher, Tom Savini as the put-upon shop teacher and Dyland McDermott and Kate Walsh as dad and mom - all work in...
Summary: Emma Watson is phenomenal! This movie is amazing! I read the book and most of the time the book is better than the movie and this is true for this movie too. But the movie was fantastic in a whole new way. It portrayed the main ideas of the book perfectly and is just an awesome movie! I'd definitely see it again! Every actor/actress was outstanding and played their parts really well. Awesome job to Stephen Chbosky and everyone else involved.
Summary: A solid coming of age movie with a good soundtrack good performances and an interesting take. It isn't ground breaking but is paced well, shot well, and ends well. Recommended for those that want a good drama rental.
Summary: Perks of Being a Wallflower earns its three stars purely from its transcendent screenplay, which I suspect borrows a lot from the poetry of the book. This is a film of moments and emotions and plays at themes of growing up and coping with some dark tragedies in a realistic and weighty way. At times, though, this philosophizing hinders the film, as it grinds to a spectator-like snail's pace and relies a bit too much (at times) on spacey exposition via voice over.
Excerpt: "But even if we don't have the power to choose where we come from, we can still choose where we go from there. we can still do things. " A sensitive and at times funny film about Charlie (Logan Lerman), Sam (Emma Watson) and Patrick (Ezra Miller). The three friends encounter certain challenges along the way. One of the most touching growing-up films coupled with a very cool soundtrack. Performances were spotless.
