    The Perks Of Being A Wallflower

    I just finished watching this and can I just say what a great film this was. It had me in tears at the end and i think this was because it made me reflect on my own life. It was an amazing film with an awesome story line. If you haven't seen this yet then I don't know what you...

    I saw Gone Girl on the 4th of October.

    I have not stopped thinking about it since. I have no clue what it is about Gone Girl that's caused me to think about it so often for the past 5 months or so, but I just absolutely adore it. I don't think there's such a thing as a perfect movie, but Gone Girl came pretty close...

    I love Into the Wild

    for just this reason. I think sometimes about materialism as a sickness, an epidemic that no one seems to be able to break free from. We all sit in public places whilst staring into our phones and all I'm thinking is that I'm looking up into a void of humanity, I only see robots...

    Midnight in Paris. Watched it twice now.

    And read the script twice as well. Woody Allen is so good in writing and directing! I love Paris and hope to return to experience most of what was depicted in the film :) I'm a sentimental person...romanticizing life. But that's okay! Life is always bound to be a little...

    There is weakness in watching films

    that make us sit, wander beyond, imagine our lives feeling, a livelihood that lightens our hearts and senses. We are glued, seeing, believing and wondering what is to happen and become next. There is a film I was taken by earlier today, I imagined how the main character felt...

    Although completely confusing it makes you realise how utterly pointless and lonely this life is.

    Perks of Being A Wallflower.

    I'm watching it now. I've seen it at least fifty times (no exaggeration) and it seems to hit a bit closer to home each time I watch it. It's one of those films that I consider to be a friend. I think we all feel that way about at least one or two. You can almost put yourself...

    (I wrote this a while ago.

    Lost in Translation with Bill Murray

    and Scarlet Johansson is a film that i watched a million times. It's a simple story about loneliness and how two people get connected with each other because they're sharing the same issue. I think the fact I'm a lonely person made the film affect me in a way most films don't.
