Today I`m gonna begin with a movie review. I haven`t yet wrote about any movies in this blog. So I guess that even if you have been a reader of my blog right from the very beginning, you don`t know that I`m quite the movie freak. But trust me, I am. And movie reviews are the short of a thing you can start to expect to find from here.
So yeah, I watched a movie named Adventureland. It takes the viewer all the way back to the summer of 1987 . To the summer when a high school grad James has to give up his plans to go to Europe for the summer with his best friend because his dad`s severe career setback So instead of a tour in Europe, James has to start looking for a summer job in Pittsburgh, to save up for college. What at first seemed like a hopeless job hunt, resulted in James getting a job in a local amusement park, Adventureland. And that is where the story actually begins. So that is where I´m gonna stop with the retell. Don`t wanna spoil it all for the potential viewers.
It says on IMDB that this movie classifies as comedy, drama and romance. I found it pretty dramatic and romantic, but not that comical. There were few jokes, but that hardly makes it a comedy. So if you are looking for something that will keep you laughing from the opening scene to the ending credits, this is not for you.
But if you are looking for a movie that will tell a great story where nothing is overwrought, like in not so many movies, it`s for you.
One of the really pleasant things about this movie is the music that accompanies the plot. The soundtrack features songs like "Pale Blue Eyes" and "Satellite of Love" by Lou Reed, "Don`t Change" by INXS and many more.
On IMDB Adventureland has received 7 points out of 10. I`m gonna be more kind than them. I`m gonna give it 8 points.
By the way, the picture I added to this post features one of the reasons to watch this movie - Margarita Levieva. Stunning looking girl. Goodbye for now!
