  • The Perks of Being a Wallflower 2012

    ★★★ Watched 28 Feb, 2013

    Trite and vacuous. Character motivations and desires are painted on in broad, clumsy strokes. Dialogue is cringe-inducing. Watson’s shaky American accent detracts from her otherwise fine performance. Incompetently directed and edited.

    And yet, somehow, there are moments where everything works and you just *feel* it. All the flaws melt away and in those fleeting moments you were a part of that world. You feel his agony and desire for Sam, his gut-wrenching longing for her. And in those moments, you’re back in your own high school memories, as waves of stomach-turning nostalgia wash over you.

  • Cars 2 2011

    ★½ Watched 12 Jul, 2011

    Pixar's first flop. My friend and I sullenly sat through the second half of the film after feeling betrayed and disappointed by the animation gods.
