Movies

A beautiful tale of teen angst tops the week's movie releases.

"The Perks of Being a Wallflower" is a heartbreaking and emotionally authentic teen drama, directed and written by Stephen Chbosky, based on his 1999 novel. It tells of Charlie (Logan Lerman), a freshman whose adjustment to high school is eased when he falls in with a crowd of social outcasts, led by step-siblings Patrick (Ezra Miller) and Sam (Emma Watson). Chbosky captures the pain and humor of teen life better than anyone since John Hughes' glory days, and his cast — particularly Lerman (from the "Percy Jackson" films), Miller ("We Need to Talk About Kevin") and Watson (in her first big post-"Harry Potter" role) — is top-notch. (Read The Cricket's interview with Chbosky and Lerman.)

The box-office battle will be between a Halloween animated story and a gritty action thriller.

"Frankenweenie" brings Tim Burton back to his roots, with a charming black-and-white stop-motion animated version of his own 1984 short film. Young Victor Frankenstein decides to revive his late and beloved dog Sparky using lightning, with strange and dangerous consequences. Burton gathers some old friends for his voice cast — including Catherine O'Hara ("Beetlejuice"), Martin Short ("Mars Attacks"), Martin Landau ("Ed Wood") and Winona Ryder ("Edward Scissorhands") — for a fun homage to old-fashioned monster movies.

"Taken 2" brings Liam Neeson back as the ex-spy who must use his skills when his family is kidnapped by nasty European thugs. The Cricket's colleague Vince Horiuchi reviewed the film, and found it to be a stale carbon copy of the first one.

On the art-house slate, there's "Escape Fire: The Fight to Rescue American Health Care," a rallying cry of a documentary that neatly marshalls the arguments for why the U.S. health-care system needs fixing. (Hint: The first step is reforming campaign finance.)

Lastly, there's "Butter," an atrocious political satire set in the world of butter-carving competitions. The characters — from the trophy Republican (Jennifer Garner) to the saintly orphan (Zara Shahidi) — are flat stereotypes, and the humor is shrill and predictable.

Watch "Means on Movies," with clips of some of these films, by clicking on the video link above.

Music

Garbage

spotlight show • Butch Vig could be resting on his laurels after producing the Foo Fighters' latest album — which cleaned up at the Grammys — and Nirvana's epochal "Nevermind." But the 57-year-old, has fun when he plays with his dance-rock band Garbage, which is back together after several long hiatuses. The band cut short its 2005 concert tour because of "exhaustion," Vig said in a recent telephone interview. In time, the four members realized that when they get together, there is "magic." A veteran skier who has tackled the slopes at Alta and Snowbird, Vig persuaded his bandmates to ditch their major label for the upcoming release of "Not Your Kind of People." "It's both liberating and terrifying," he said of the split. "We butted heads with our label on our last album. … They're always looking for pop hits. Sometimes they would try to homogenize our sound."

When • Friday, Oct. 5, at 7 p.m.

Where • In The Venue, 219 S. 600 West, Salt Lake City

Tickets • $32.50-$35 at SmithsTix

Rich Wyman

spotlight show • Rich Wyman is one of the most respected musicians on the local scene, which explain why several Utah musicians — including Lisa Needham, Terence Hansen, Rehan Jacob, Eric Munoz, George T. Gregory, Joy & Eric, Shaky Trade, Ricardo Romero, Liz Anderson and David Rolfe — will join him onstage for the release of "Good Company." A dueling piano player at Keys on Main, Wyman also is the recipient of 10 ASCAP Awards. The rocking piano man first came to Park City in 1990 to ski and, for the most part, never left. While living in Park City, he found himself at the same dinner party as Eddie Van Halen — a moment he said changed his life. The two bonded over music, writing songs that became the foundation of Wyman's second album. He will debut songs from "Good Company," an album that was three years in the making.

When • Friday, Oct. 5, at 9 p.m.

Metric

spotlight show • Metric frontwoman Emily Haines has been leading the Canadian indie-rock band for close to 15 years, and she is still "obsessed" with writing the perfect song. "It's a hard thing to pin down, but I hope to find it someday," she said during a recent telephone interview. Fans would say Metric has been writing near-perfect songs for years. Several are on the 2012 album "Synthetica," a layered collection of arena-ready hooks, choruses and arrangements that shows pop music need not avoid depth. "We've dedicated ourselves to finding a feeling," said the 38-year-old. "We're cursed with asking a lot of big questions." Onstage, Haines projects an aggressive persona, so it is surprising to hear she still feels "like an awkward teenager at times." Metric's musical contributions can be heard on the film "Cosmopolis," starring Robert Pattinson, who also starred in "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse," which featured Metric's "Eclipse (All Yours)." Haines said Pattinson "is a really good guy," but Kristen Stewart shouldn't consider her competition. "I don't know if he's a muse," Haines said.

When • Friday, Oct. 5, at 8 p.m.

Where • The Depot, 400 W. South Temple, Salt Lake City

Tickets • $31 at SmithsTix

The Corin Tucker Band

spotlight show • Writing and recording "Kill My Blues," The Corin Tucker Band's new album, was a group effort. "A lot of the time I bring in a verse and chorus that is straight-ahead rock," Tucker said. "Then the rhythm section kicks it and brings in the funk." The new album, released last month, will remind many fans of Tucker's raw and rapid-fire work with the punk-rock mainstay Sleater-Kinney. "When we went out onto the road, we found that people really wanted to dance," Tucker said. "I really like to dance, but you have to bring it" to entice the audience to do the same. And the last show where Tucker, a Portland resident, danced? A B-52's show.

TV

There have been plenty of Mormons on plenty of reality TV shows in recent years, so maybe it makes sense for a reality show about Mormons.

But a reality show about Mormon missionaries?

It probably won't surprise you to learn that just such a show, The District, is on BYUtv on Sunday, 6:30 p.m. I haven't seen it yet, but here is BYUtv's description:

"In this unscripted, actor-less documentary series, viewers will meet eight young men and women who serve LDS missions in San Diego, California, as well as the diverse characters they come across each day — from hospitable investigators to hostile passersby."

I'm reserving judgment until I actually do get a chance to see it.
