Completely Blew My Mind
I just got the book for Christmas and since seeing the movie, can absolutely not wait to read it.
The film centers around a freshman named Charlie (Logan Lerman) who is recently trying to move forward from his best friend's suicide. Upon starting high school, step-siblings Patrick (Ezra Miller) and Sam (Emma Watson) introduce Charlie to a whole new world full of people, relationships and adventures while on a journey to discover who he really is.
I knew this movie was going to be good, but I didn't expect it to be THIS good. The screenplay is brilliant and all of the performances are terrific, particularly Ezra Miller's. Stephen Chbosky appears to have adapted his novel brilliantly and the soundtrack is magnificent too (you'll know what I'm talking about once you watch the tunnel scene).
If you haven't seen Perks yet, definitely add it to your list. You won't be disappointed.
I Really Loved This Movie
I was hesitant with it at first because the beginning was a little slow but sometimes that builds up to a good movie, and in my opinion, it did. I thought most things in this movie were done very well, such as character development, capturing the beauty of Brazil through the cave and jungle scenes, and the torture scenes. Some characters could have had more screen time like the couple that were the first to go because we barely learned anything about them but everyone else I thought you could really care for. The one English guy that basically risked his life to try and get Amy and his friend and ended up dying in the end I thought was very heroic and you actually cared when he got killed. I was basically rooting for most of the characters to survive, honestly. I was actually satisfied with the torture scene to be honest, even thought it didn't contain much gore. It showed how in pain she was and she obviously wanted to just die but she was alive during the entire process and you got to see the reactions of the English man, scared at what was about to happen to him as well and I thought the shots there were brilliant. I don't see why people bash this film so much. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time wondering what was going to happen and was satisfied with the ending although it was a little abrupt. At least the tourists actually tried to fight back. That's the least you can say for a lot of thriller/horror movies out there.
