Perks of Being a Reader

1 Jul

Finished reading The Perks Of Being A Wallflower the other day.  Absolutely fantastic book.  I wanted to turn around and read it again right away.  It is just so full of delicious quotes and fantastic everythings.  Would that I could write as well as “Charlie.”  It felt a bit Good Will Hunting-ish near the end, but it still worked for me.  We’ll see how the movie plays out.

The trailer for the movie is better after having read the book, but it’s a good trailer either way.  It looks amazingly accurate to the book, which I think is impressive since the book is all letters (like, the kind you send in the mail) and it’s hard to do a movie that way.  Then again it’s written and directed by Stephen Chbosky, the author of the book, so it will be hard to find fault in the adaptation.  Plus it has Hermione and Percy Jackson in it, both looking nothing like Hermione or Percy Jackson, so that’s good.

Only thing is… this comes out in a few months!  Why is there only one trailer?

New Harry Potter trailer

Go here and watch the trailer.

Given the ending of this book – if the filmmakers do it justice – watching this movie for the first time could be as intense as seeing Match Point for the first time, or Serenity for the first time after a Firefly marathon.

That would be quite a feat. Even if it’s a bit less intense, it’ll still be good. In any case, that’s a great trailer.

Wall – E footage!!!

16 Jun

Almost everything Pixar does is pure cinematic genius, and even the movies they do that aren’t (A Bug’s Life, Cars) are still at least average.
I haven’t seen Ratatouille yet, though I’m pretty sure it’s going to be great. It’s by Pixar, and it’s directed by Brad Bird (who also did The Incredibles, debatably Pixar’s best movie), but I’m already more excited for their next movie, Wall-E.

Watch the trailer: “The year is 2700. WALL•E, a robot, spends every day doing what he was made for. But soon, he will discover what he was meant for.

Now, because I am a sucker for leaked movie news on the vast internets I know more about this movie than that trailer tells you (which isn’t hard I suppose, since it tells you almost nothing). I’m not going to give it away here since I know some of you prefer to see movies knowing as little as possible, but let me just say that since I know* “what he was made for” I’m incredibly excited about this movie. It’s not really like anything Pixar has done before. In some ways, it’s not like any computer animated movie that has ever been done before. Since everyone and their divorced parents is now zagging with the computer animated movies it’s about time somebody (Pixar) zigged.

Also, the Brazil music in the trailer? Perfect…

*if you’d like to know too let me know and I’ll shoot you a reply in some less public forum (like an email).
