The Perks of Being a Wallflower movie

My Rating: 5 stars I have been waiting for about two and a half years – ever since I first read the book. I was actually quite nervous about how everything would turn out. The Perks of Being a Wallflower holds a special place in my heart, and I don’t think I could handle it […]

The Hunger Games

My Rating: 3 stars I walked into the theater with very high (very unrealistic) expectations for this movie. I guess had these high expectations because, well, the Hunger Games books themselves are one of the best young adult novels ever written, I expected its movie to be as mind-blowing as the book. Now, don’t me […]

The Woman in Black

My Rating: 4 stars Arthur Kipps, played by Daniel Radcliffe is a lawyer who lives with his four-year-old son, Joseph. His wife, Stella, died after childbirth at a young age. Arthur is assigned to handle the estate of Alice Drawblow, who owned Eel Marsh: a big, looming house on an island far off shore. Alice […]

Fight Club

My Rating: 5 stars After I finished reading this book last month, I couldn’t wait to watch this movie. Considering how much I loved the book, I wanted to see it brought to life and how it would all be played out. And honestly, I absolutely loved it. Edward Norton starred as the Narrator, Brad […]

Deathly Hallows Part 2, Round 2

After seeing Deathly Hallows Part 2 again, I realized really now much of the ending of the movie was changed. Really, the whole timeline of events was altered. All the events leading up to the big moment (when Harry finally defeats Voldemort) were totally different than what happened in the book. After Harry is “killed” […]

Beastly

My rating: 2 stars I started this movie thinking of the book and how much I loved it. To my disappointment, the movie wasn’t I would have expected it to be. First of all, Kyle, the main character, wasn’t even turned into a hairy beast, like in the book. He was transformed into a weirdly […]

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2

My Rating: 5 stars Okay, here we go. I had been waiting for the moment I’d see this movie for four years. I was lucky enough to see it at midnight, and I couldn’t believe it was happening. I got to see the movie in 3D, and it was my first time seeing a movie […]

Shutter Island

My Rating: 4 stars My mom had read this book and seen the movie a while ago and I was in the mood for some Leonardo DiCaprio, so I decided to watch this today. Basically, Leonardo DiCaprio plays a U.S. marshal named Teddy Daniels and his partner, Chuck Aule, who are both U.S. marshals go […]

To Kill a Mockingbird

My Rating: 5 stars I don’t think I can describe how much I loved watching this movie. I got to watch it in school, and I feel like some of the kids didn’t enjoy the movie as much as I did. The movie was almost exactly like the book, but with few plot changes to […]

It’s Kind of a Funny Story

My Rating: 5 stars So, I went into this movie with high hopes. This book was absolutely fabulous and inspiring, could the movie ever live up to it? Well, surprisingly, it basically did. I mean, it will never be as amazing as book, but isn’t that always the case? I really liked how the movie […]
