Last night, Nick and I went to see Woody Allen’s new movie, Midnight in Paris. It was the first movie we’d gone to see in the theatre since Black Swan because there just haven’t been many movies that have made us want to leave the comfort of our living room and deal with the loud and care-free movie-goers of New York. Despite the fact that there were definitely theatre-talkers present, the movie was great. A must-see for literary nerds and lovers of Paris. Nick and I are even more excited to visit the city this Summer!
You know how you can tell that the movie you’re about to see is good by the previews that play before it? Well I want to see every single movie I saw trailers for, especially this one:
Yep, right up my alley.
Are there any movies you’re excited for this summer?

If you were into the Get Up Kids and Catcher in the Rye in your late teenage/college years, chances are, you’ve read The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. A cult favourite, I first read it my second year of college when I befriended a very fun, tattooed, stretched-eared, bespectacled girl who lent it to me and have probably read it 5 times since. I have bought it as gifts for friends and family I thought would enjoy it and still think of it as a must-read for adolescent boys and the girls who are trying to understand them. Now, it’s becoming a feature film, to be released next year.
Starring Paul Rudd, Emma Watson, and even Arrested Development’s Mae Whitman, I am going to say I have faith that this will translate into a decent movie version of the book. Of course, movies are just never as good as books, that’s just how it is. So I suggest reading it yourself before (or maybe after, to avoid any disappointment) you see the movie.
