Just wanted to make a quick recap of the movies I've seen lately that I've loved! Trust me, I've seen way more, but that doesn't mean they were all good. After all, this is 'Things We Love.' ;)
First up is 'The Dark Knight Rises.' I was never a super huge fan of the batman franchise, and I only vaguely remember the past two movies, but I have to say that after watching this, I really wanted to watch the other two again! I walked in after the movie started and it was only ten minutes in or so, but I got hooked right away. It was probably because I didn't know Anne Hathaway could act like that! Oh my goodness, she was such a BA. And I love it when the girls are the ones kicking butt! Don't forget Joseph Gordon-Levitt! I loved the reveal of his name at the end (Robin) and that left it open to make another Batman movie as well. Overall, the movie was great with an entertaining story and a surprise twist!
This next movie is now in my list of favorites. 'The Perks of Being a Wallflower' is about a wallflower who meets a group of seniors and their time together in high school. It's sad, yet sweet at the same time. I had the inexplicable urge to cry after the movie ended. The feels, man, the feels. I love absolutely everything about it. It hits all the right places for me. First, the cast is amazing! Logan Lerman, Emma Stone, Ezra Miller, Paul Rudd, and Nicholas Braun? Yes, yes, and yes! The story is great as well. Now this is a real high school movie and I understand why it is called a coming of age film. I'll have to read the book soon. And before you think, " Oh gosh, they made a movie out of the book? It's gonna be terrible!" Don't worry, the author of the book directed the film! :D
Oh, 'Pitch Perfect", how you make me laugh. This is one of the most hilarious movies I've seen. Now it's not the best movie out there, but it sure is funny and entertaining. Who doesn't wanna watch a movie about acapella competitions?! Anna Kendrick is great, and I have a new found appreciation for Rebel Wilson. But my two favorite characters are Donald and Lilly. There is just something about them that makes me love them more. Also, the actress who plays Lilly is a fashion designer which is awesome and the actor who plays Donald is part of a freestyle rap group called Freestyle Love Supreme, which is also awesome! That's right, I creeped on them. This is also one of the most quotable movies ever. And they did the acapella version of 'No Diggity'! If you're looking for a light, funny movie, then this is the movie for you!
As you can see, this wasn't really a review but more on what I liked about the movies. I hope they convinced you to watch them though! They're worth your time! :) We'd love to know what you thought of them if you do decide to watch these movies, so drop a comment!
