Dome Pondering Movie Review: Perks of Being a Wallflower (2012)

What is it about? 

A quiet freshman is taken under the wings of several seniors who not only introduce him to the real world, but also help to make sense of his own. 

Who is in it? 

Logan Lerman - Charlie

Ezra Miller - Patrick

Emma Watson - Sam

Favorite Scene: 

While playing truth or dare in the midst of his unwanted relationship with Mary Elizabeth and ongoing feelings for Sam, he is asked to kiss the most beautiful woman in the room. He betrays Mary Elizabeth and kisses Sam. 

Favorite Quote: 

Mother: She's on the phone now? Charlie, you've got to break up with her.
Charlie: I can do that?
---
Sam: You can't just sit there and put everybody's lives ahead of yours and think it counts as love.
---
Charlie: Right now we are alive and in this moment I swear we are infinite.

Review: 

I didn't read the book, but Perks of Being a Wallflower is a film that is very interesting. It takes the viewer back to a time during adolescence when making sense of things was difficult and finding your spot in this world was even harder. High School made this process even harder, and this film lends itself to that. 

What really makes Perks of Being a Wallflower very interesting are the depth of the characters. Each of them are very unique in various ways, and as the story continues, you learn more about the troubles from them as the film unfolds. Especially, from Charlie.

Perks of Being a Wallflower is an interesting movie well worth the watch simply based on its characters and it's overall relativity to something we've all dealt with. 

Grade: 3/5

1. Hollywood Victims - Much props to the many men and women who have taken the step in telling their story about sexual assault and being the victim of displays of power for sexual gain within Hollywood. It's tough, especially in such an unforgiving business like show business, but it takes guts to tell the truth - much respect to you all who did so.
2. Joe Girardi - Have you ever seen a more brutally honest manager or head coach during a playoff stretch? Girardi has been letting his soul bare on mistakes, feelings, lineups, results, decisions, his family, his time in New York, and anything and everything else. I have a feeling Girardi is walking away, after this season, and if he is, I'm glad he's doing it by just being him. 
3. Eminem - I've seen some new school fans insult Eminem and downplaying his ability. I'm still a fan. After all, no one - NO ONE - captures anger in their music like Em. No one. Still so captivating. And yes, his freestyle of President …

Dome Pondering Export - "TNA's Biggest Problem Is..."

After ten years of importing materials, words, pictures, and videos from other sites her for your viewing and for archiving, I never thought I'd get to the point where I'd be EXPORTING material out to other sites. Yes, the DP continues to grow, and yours truly had the kind opportunity to contribute a guest column to an awesome Pro Wrestling blog with a very large audience. The piece has since been very well received, and I hope to have the opportunity to do so in the future, and maybe even other sites and avenues as well. 
You can read the column here on the TNAsylum website (special thanks to them as well for posting), or the entire text below:

1. Heroes in Las Vegas - Among the heartbreak in Las Vegas are the many heroes who helped shield and save lives during the gun fire, as well as the many in hospitals who did some serious work in aiding the hundreds who flooded the hospitals in the area. Please, please, please be sure to read a story or two of the many who saved so many lives on that horrific night. 
2. Jimmy Kimmel - Kudos to the Kimmel on his opening monologue following the Las Vegas terrorist attack (let's call it what it is). In fact, many of the late show hosts delivered rhetoric that the talking heads on 24 hour networks couldn't, and in many ways, were the words reflective of so many. 
3. MLB Playoffs - Man oh man. How great have the MLB Playoffs been? I've been a nervous wreck with every moment of my New York Yankees. I still stand by it - best playoffs in sports.

1. Las Vegas Shooting Terrorist Attack - Shake. My. Head. Just unbelievable.
