Movie Review Perks Of Being A Wallflower

1. The Perks of Being a Wallflower2. The two reviews I chose were from the New York Times and Rolling Stones magazine. http://www.nytimes.com/2012/09/21/movies/the-perks-of-being-a-wallflower-directed-by-stephen-chbosky.html?_r=0http://www.rollingstone.com/movies/reviews/the-perks-of-being-a-wallflower-201209203. These websites are credible because they are maintained and portrayed by professionals. They are also both respected publications that have been around for quite some time. Each website has a "Contact" page, and a specific information about the author along with other reviews that he/she wrote. The content is modern and relevant to the when the movie came out (2012). Over all, both of my sources pass an evaluation base on authority, coverage, currency. Seeing as a review is an opinionated form of writing, it's a lot more difficult to define accuracy. However, the objectivity for both articles seemed to be genuine.4. The Rolling Stones and NY Times reviews both discussed the not so traditional coming-of-age story line that makes up "The Perks of Being a Wallflower". They go on to express how the author, Stephen Chbosky, wrote the book as a sort of auto-biography of his high school years. These reviews discuss how specific actors bring to life the characters they portrayed cleverly, adding to the characters' specific purpose to the plot.5. "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" is possibly my favorite movie, of all time. It combines, very elegantly, the real-life experiences of a teenager "coming of age", emotional scars from past traumas, questions of sexuality, with the soft humor of exploring new things, the tender touch of first experiences, and the healing company of good friends. I love this movie for it's emotional "ups and downs". It is definitely a tearjerker! The actors selected for the roles of Sam, Charlie, and Patrick were excellent, and bring to life what is a beautifully written book. Which brings me to yet another aspect of this movie I love, it was directed by it's original author! I've always found that to something extra special. In all seriousness, though, "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" is a must see for every movie-goer.

Though discrimination is often less overt today than what is depicted in the film, many forms of racism still exist and for this reason it is important for everyone to see this movie. It became famous not only for its excellent acting and directing, but also because its message hit home with so many people. Racism does still exist today, and movies which create awareness of this social problem are important. To Kill a Mockingbird does this perfectly and is just as timely today as it was forty years ago when it was initially released.
