Wow, what an awesome day!
Today was Day 4 of the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) and I spent it watching two movies.
The first (I woke up at 5:30 this morning to redeem these tickets since I had two vouchers. Yuck.) was a Turkish Independent film called Watchtower. See proof below:
And The Perks of Being a Wall Flower (based on the book by the same name). See proof below:
Both movies were great. The Perks of Being a Wall Flower was AMAZING (and I haven’t read the book. Upsetting, I know). I was in tears by the end and laughed (and cried) throughout.
This guy is going to be HUGE. I liked him in Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lighting Thief (Damn, that’s long title) but this film has…wow. Just. Wow…
Emma Watson was equally amazing. Halfway through, I remembered that she’s British. She nailed that American accent. You don’t think of Harry Potter or Hermoine at all. This girl will also be a big star long after the boy wizard franchise.
Did I mention that I’m in love with Logan Lerman? No? I think I should proclaim it a bit louder…
So that was my day. It’s also an excuse for why I’m not posting a writing related post or a book review since I’ve been running around downtown since 5:30 in the AM.
I still have one movie to go this upcoming Saturday called Byzantium. It’s a vampire flick. Don’t judge me. If you saw who’s in it (in terms of talent and not looks. I’m not THAT shallow) then you’d go see it too.
