The 72nd Golden Globes was here and now gone. The big winners are Boyhood, Birdman, and The Theory of Everything. The big losers were the people (including me) who had to sit through that insufferable telecast. It was really bad and it was truly three hours of my life wasted. If you didn’t watch the show, you can download my recap of the broadcast where I not only discuss the winners and talk about the high and low moments of the show but I offer up some analysis as well as where we are heading as the Oscar nominations are coming out this Thursday.
There will be the usual Weekly Movie Podcast on Tuesday as well as a podcast talking about the Oscar nominations on Thursday.
Movie Review Adventureland 2009 Starring: Jesse Eisenberg, Kristen Stewart, Ryan Reynolds Directed by: Greg Mottola
It’s never a good sign after watching a movie when the first thought that pops into your mind is that the movie could have been worse. This is the case with Adventureland. It could have been worse. If you were expecting Greg Mottola to pop out another Superbad, you’re in for a world of disappointment. It tries to be a bit more mature than Superbad, which I felt matured as the movie went along which made it good. Adventureland, on the other hand, tried to ram down our throats that this wasn’t going to be a movie about sex and social awkwardness despite having plenty of jokes centered around sex and social awkwardness. At least the acting is good which may surprise some. Then again, it could have been worse.
