Adventureland

Susie downloaded Adventureland the other day and we finally got around to watching it.

It was good. It wasn't the stupid-comedy we were expecting, it was more your slice-of-life introspective exploration of the late 80s. I enjoyed it, but then, I tend to like movies like that (not necessarily set in the 80s, but the slice-of-life introspective thing). It had some excellent funny moments - the kind that don't feel forced, but just funny. I like those.

Anyway, Ryan Reynolds is amazingly attractive...even when he is playing a bit of douche. Seriously, it is not fair that all the hot guys in my country go to the states and marry people like Scarlett Johansson. Not that they would date me if they stayed, but they should, because I'm friggin' awesome. Though, really, I guess I shouldn't be complaining, because currently my country is holding both Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki hostage for 9 months out of every year...they aren't dating me either, but I don't think we're right for each other anyway. I'm not much of a dog person and I don't believe in Jesus. They are much better off with their girlfriends.

Kirsten Stewart was good too. I'm not sure I've ever seen her in anything before. I've never watched the Twilight movie. She did a good job of looking only vaguely attractive and not being completely sympathetic.

Sometimes I wish I smoked pot, because I think Adventureland would be a great movie to get high and watch. Yes, I think that sums up my review nicely. I might have gone on a tangent there in the middle, I apologize.
