RELEASE DATE: October 2, 2012

As a fan of director Rodrigo Cortes's last film, Buried, which used some extremely crafty filmmaking techniques that allowed it to take place entirely inside of a coffin with Ryan Reynolds, I was very much intrigued by his next movie, Red Lights.

"We accept the love we think we deserve."

A quirky, poignant coming-of-age story based on the best-selling novel by Stephen Chbosky, The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a heartfelt high school drama in the spirit of the late John Hughes' The Breakfast Club.

Academically advanced, socially inept freshman Charlie (Logan Lerman) is a wallflower, always watching from the sidelines, until a group of charismatic seniors take him under their wing.

Gorgeous, free-spirited Sam (Emma Watson) and her cut-up stepbrother, Patrick (Ezra Miller), help guide Charlie through new friendships, first loves, and family dramas while introducing him to a world of sex, drugs, and The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Meanwhile, his English teacher, Mr. Anderson (Paul Rudd), has introduced Charlie to the realm of literature, sparking his dreams of becoming a writer.

But even as Charlie thrives in this new world of mix-tapes and bacchanalian parties, the pain of his past - which includes his best friend's recent suicide and the accidental death of his beloved Aunt Helen (Melanie Lynskey) - lingers just below the surface [...]

When it was announced that an all-female version of The Expendables was being made, many scratched their head and wondered if it could and would work. Naturally, a large part of its potential success was going to depend on whether or not they could put together a cast equal to the awesomeness that was the cast that was put together for The Expendables and its sequel.

Thankfully, things are off to a good start. [...]
