Movie: Whiplash

whiplash-posterAfter not hearing about it until the Oscars, I picked up Whiplash while at the store the other night. Of all the best picture nominees, this one caught my attention the most. I didn’t really know what to expect from it, but it seemed like a promising film. Holy fucking cow, Fangirls. This movie was a spectacle of intensity and unexpected amazement. It seriously left me completely speechless.

Scrolling around Netflix can do the heart some good, Fangirls. I love choosing random movies or shoes to watch, things I’ve never heard of. I went to do this one day this past weekend, and accidentally ended up at a movie I had wanted to see, I just didn’t know what it was. I had heard about Beginners, though I hadn’t remembered the name, and after initially choosing the movie, was delighted that “Oh!

This series was something, Fangirls. It was certainly one of the most engaging movies I’ve watched in a long time, I was just so pulled in.

I had heard of the book, seen that the movie was on Netflix, and decided I had read the book before I watched the movie. Duh. The story of the Lisbon sisters is very dark & fully charged with adolescent feelings & fascination. To my surprise, I ended up really enjoying the movie more than the book. Which, might be a first for me.

Now, Fangirls, I read this book when I was a freshman in high school. I loved it, I read it very quickly. I was nervous about watching this movie and about writing this article because I don’t have the best memory, Fangirls. This will not be an in depth & detailed comparison of the book & movie. I simply finally got around to watching a movie adapted from a great book, and it wasn’t half bad.
