Not as "riveting" and "tense" as the poster might suggest, but still pretty smart and harrowing. It focuses a lot on the negotiation side of things with the pirates and the company that owns the ship and employs the men. Well-made overall.

About a role-playing(like Dungeons and Dragons and shit) super nerd and his friends who sit around a table and craft all these magical quests with battles between trolls and wizards and whatnot. The main character eventually has his crazy ego threatened by the new guy to the team and turns into and obnoxiously loud, insecure, manipulative sociopath. It's meant to be a comedy but that guy's rants eventually began to annoy the hell out of me. It's still a really unique flick though. Entertaining enough.

I gotta say. This movie sounded interesting to me because I've always liked thrillers. But I had no idea the whole movie literally is shot inside the coffin he's in. But dam...... I never expected a movie with just 1 character in a container the whole movie, with no action, to be such a thrill ride. This movie really got me.
^^^^I literally just watched that before I went to bed last night.
It's a good movie. Sometimes I felt the script was trying too hard. The characters (minus Charlie) got on my nerves at times. I never knew students in the 90s acted like 2010s hipsters in high school. I think besides the music, the 90s weren't really represented that well.
I liked the movie, the themes of mental illness and teenage loneliness were depicted well but some of the dialogue was overbearingly annoying because people didn't really adopt some of the qualities they displayed until a decade later. Seemed like the film wanted to pander to today's progressive, artistic, intellectual crowd a little too blatantly. Overall, it's good work that has important things to say

I've been trying to see Perks for a year now. It was one of those limited release movies tried to go see but just never made it. Not streaming on Netflix, and just the other night I noticed it was on Showtime, but it had already started. So I looked for it On Demand, and my Showtime OD didn't have it, which shocked me. I guess I'll have to find a time slot to record it.
