Movie titles that indicate the fact that the movie is going to be all about romance scare me, so Stuck in Love pretty much sounds like a nightmare to me. Yes, I’m one of those romance hater types and nobody should ever invite me to the cinema to see a rom-com – even the idea of it makes me a bit dizzy. Then again, I always say that one should watch bad movies to recognize the greatness in the good ones, so even I have to find some courage and watch a movie about romance at some point. So I did, I was super brave and finally watched Stuck in Love – and since my life is a big pile of irony, I ended up liking it.
By the third part I find it very difficult to come up with any additional things to say, so for those who happen to end up here with no back story to this what so ever, check out part 1 and part 2. And yes, this is the third consecutive day I’m posting a TOP 10 list – and no, this won’t be the last, two more are coming after the weekend, so the end is near, bare with me.
Before my long marathon of TOP 10 posts commences I discovered I ought to review The Perks of Being a Wallflower because as seen from the delicious picture of popcorn – it was my favorite! I was contemplating a lot on the fact if it deserves the best or not, but I finally thought to leave my negativity out the door. For good reason I might add, Chbosky’s book got to me when I read it, around that time I heard it was going to be a movie, and it was a joy to see it come to life in the hands of the author himself. Isn’t that the best way to translate a medium onto the screen in terms of truth, honor and integrity?
Just going to put it out there into the universe so I wouldn’t forget (although I doubt I ever will forget but who knows what might happen) – I’m impatiently waiting to see The Perks of Being a Wallflower! Waited it before I even saw the trailer because I read the book after I found out they were making it into a movie and it feels like forever ago and I would read the book again but my friend has it and she lives in a town that doesn’t believe in bus traffic between my town. Oh, I got a bit side-tracked with this so I’m just getting it back on track (did you saw that clever word play I just used) – I loved the book! Took me a day to read it, that’s how much I loved it. Now the trailer is out and I can’t wait.. it is like waiting for my birthday, though much more surprising because I hardly ever get any surprises for my birthday. But that’s not what I wanted to say at all. All I wanted to say was – ou em gi, the premier is so close! Perks hit the screen-wall (and the wordplay just keeps on rolling off my fingertips) on September 14.
PS: I feel like it is necessary to mention that the author of the book, Stephen Chbosky, is also the man behind the screenplay and he, as it seems, wants to do everything on his own therefore also sits on the director’s chair. One thing for sure, I am pretty sure the movie will do justice for the book because no author wants to ruin his work by actually making a bad movie of it.Oh and he’s an Aquarius, not that it plays an important role but I, as a fellow Aquarius, like all my water pouring sign-brothers and -sisters.
