2012: Best Moments in a Theater

Chick 2 says:perks-of-being-a-wallflower-2

Tom Hardy throws a kid over a paintball obstacle as the kid screams, “it’s just a game, mister!” in This Means War.

The countdown to the Hunger Games sounds as Katniss decides whether or not to go for the arrows.

Zac Efron stars in The Lucky One.

The Hulk smashes Thor in his handsome Norwegian face after they take down a huge alien together.

David’s disembodied head continues to talk calmly to Dr. Shaw as they escape in Prometheus.

All the 80’s music and hair in Rock of Ages.

Any given “good guys continue to fight against all odds” moments in The Dark Knight Rises.

A young cast moves you and Emma Watson is not at all Hermione in The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

Thinking OMG I have no idea how this will or even should end in Looper.

Beautiful lighting and cinematography in Skyfall.

Crying hysterically to Anne Hathaway’s I Dreamed a Dream.

Short Takes: The Perks of Being a Wallflower

Chick 2 says: 

Overall Concept:  B   Well played, but been done.

Acting: A  These kids have it, all of them.

Script:  A-  (good adaptation from book to screen, with a few necessary and maybe not necessary changes)

Cinematography:  B-  Meh

Hotness of Cast:  A  All cuties

Wardrobe:   B-  Is it the 80’s, the 90’s or modern day?  Maybe things looked different in Pittsburgh in ’91.

Location/Setting:  B  Good suburbia

Climax:  B+  Maybe an A if you didn’t read the book, but if you’re gonna go there, go there.  I’m pretty sure the kids could have handled it, as well as most of the audience.
