The Perks of Being a Wallflower

I thought this is a teen drama like Juno, but I was wrong. It was deeper than just a drama. This movie drew my attention while browsing what movie I should watch during flight to Shanghai because of Emma Watson and Ezra Miller. You know Emma Watson, but Ezra caught my attention because of The Flash in Justice League.

And with Ant-Man inside too.

There are many memorable lines, but there are two which I find very memorable:

One, which I feel so meaningful is

Sam: Why do I and everyone I love pick people who treat us like we’re nothing?

Charlie: We accept the love we think we deserve

which actually what Bill, Charlie’s teacher told him earlier.

It made me think, that are we being picky then? Or will you stay in bad relationship and endure it, because you think you’re not deserve better?

Anyway, I’ll let that line linger in my mind for awhile.

Second line which I really like is

We can’t choose where we come from but we can choose where we go from there

quote

It’s just like the water which gives hope in the desert. Okay I was being too dramatic here.

By the way, there is a continuation of the conversation between Charlie and Bill

Charlie: Can we make them know that they deserve more?

Bill: We can try.

So, it’s really a good movie. It made me laugh, cry and think about many things. If you haven’t watched it, give it a go.

And let me know what do you think. Or share your fave lines from the movie.

To be a neighborhood Spider-Man 

Have you watched Spider-Man? Do you like it? 

This post might have some references to the movie so, spoiler ahead. I’m actually not a big fan of Spider-Man, but I saw a lot of positive reviews from my friends. So, I decided to give it a go. (*ahem* at least I can see RDJ) 

Overall, it’s very enjoyable to watch this Spider-Man movie. So, here are the 3 key things I learned from it

When you’re a little lost, it’s time to listen more

I was watching “Hotel Honnouji” by Ayase Haruka and Shinichi Tsutsumi about Nobunaga Oda. 

I was thinking how many movies about time travel and related to him I had watched before. But I find that each movie was focusing on different things.

The female character was a little lost about what she’s going to do next after her company went bankrupt. And she went to Kyoto to see her fiancée who always busy with his work. The purpose was to meet his parents and do some wedding preparations.

There were few memorable lines from the movie was when she was having conversation with Nobunaga Oda. But these two were my favorite: 

1. When she said, she has no big dream to fulfill like him

Big or small, who decides that? Isn’t it “are you going to do it or not” more important.

2. When she said, it’s impossible for her because she’s not special 

Who decides it’s impossible or not. People said it’s impossible because no one has been doing it before, right?

Inspiration from Bittersweet (JP drama)

I watched にがくてあまい (Bittersweet) while flying back from Shanghai to Singapore. The main male character is a good cook while the female character is a typical office worker who care more about her work than anything else. 

They started with funny encounters and some fights, but they care about each other. 

One of the memorable lines was

Sometimes you just need to let yourself simmer a little longer to bring out the best of you. Like a stew. 

If you have time, you should watch it. I might look for the web toons too..

  • Reporter’s photo title at the exhibition

変わらない世界を嘆くかわりに彼女が走たその思いが届く事を信じる。

Rather than complaining that nothing is changes, she puts her faith in books and run ahead.

  • The older brother vs the council

A: Just shoot the soldiers! You won’t have the chance to eliminate the insurgents. We need to prove them that this isn’t something worth to fight for especially in this twisted world

B: Don’t you think the question should be how to live the best in the twisted world?
