A film to check out! - adventureland
I haven't done a film review since the time machine classic last year so I thought it would make sence to do more than one.....Adventureland first came out in 2009, but I saw it first late last year - basically its a really suttle romance/comedy which odd considering its made by the same makers of superbad, who generally gives us in your face teenager american comedy, And although this film has much the same feel because its based on teenagerhood situations it gives us a twist because it throws in a romance story which gives it a serious and emotional edge but at the same time having a suttle comedy...which is an awesome mix.
The film is based in 1987 following the character of james, as he works through summer to save up to move to new york with one of his best friends. he gets a crappy job at an amusment park called 'adventureland' and soon makes new friends and finds a girl he befriends called emily, soon he falls for her but there are complications like any teenage romance.
The film generally deals with all the things most teenagers will have to deal with when trying to find the right person and having a sucessful relationship and it really helps you relate to the film when you've also had some of these experiences. in fact id say I like it most because I can relate to 'james' so much that I could possibly imagene myself having the ending he gets? and that makes me feel good!
he works a crappy job he hates, gets shit all money, is shit at talking to girls and hates where he lives and wants to move out
who can't relate to that? you must have at least 2 things in common? unless you one of those well adjusted normal people....BUT the majority of you arn't! so yeh I think this film just gives you/us - the generation of fuck ups that we can end up where we want with who we want no matter what complications get in the way and have some laughs in the process
..............and its all on youtube but shhhhhhhhhh
peace and thanks
