3SMReviews: The Perks of Being a Wallflower
The acting was quite good by two of the three main characters and there were some quite delightful scenes in this movie. However, when it all was finished and done, it just didn’t hold together very well, to my disappointment. Also, I get annoyed at movies where people are supposedly “uncool” and then their high school existence is about 400 times cooler than mine leaving me to feel incredibly lame.*
Cost: Would have been $8.50 but someone gave me passes to Regal so it was FREE
Where watched: Fox Tower.
*I will say that this movie has me rolling ideas of what does it really mean to be “popular” and “cool” and my annoyance may get spit out as an essay in the future.
I liked the movie, as I stated before. It did lead to some angsty moopiness*. The three main actors were DELIGHTFUL!
*Moop comes from a wonderful children's book I love (Charley Malarkey and the Bell-Button Machine). We use it interchangeably to mean a lot of things. This time it means a bit depressed-ish.
I found Emma Watson to be very much the same as Hermione and though I really want her to be a good actress, I'm not really convinced she is. But the two guys I loved.
Oh, I've been wanting to see this real bad. Maybe I'll wait till it comes out on DVD & get it from the library.
