The Perks of Being a Wallflower is Cool

This one's fun, and it was nice to finally see it. As you know, Emma Watson is a favorite of mine. I've seen all of her movies, so it was just a matter of time until I added this one to the list too. She, along with the rest of the cast did an extraordinary job. It was darker than I expected too, which was great because I like films that make one think and aren't so Hollywood. Perks does this well, and I sympathized with the characters that were going through hard times. Being that it takes place in the 90's is cool too, because that makes one really appreciate growing up today in comparison. It seems like we've grown as a culture, and it's more acceptable to be unique and different these days in America then back then.

This film also brought back good memories of teen movie favorites from the past. Like anything John Hughes, American Beauty, Almost Famous, and Fast Times at Ridgemont High. The ones with heart are the ones that stick with you. It would have went well with a bottle of wine.

So yup, go watch this one if you like slice-of-life stories. It's worth the time.
Or if you've seen it already, what did think?

Cheers and happy movie watching.
