 about brickthrewglass

Brick threw glass is a Movie review website. Brick threw glass is a metaphor I made up for film, the BRICK is the anamorphic shot blocking, and GLASS is the camera lens , the word THREW is a play on words, should have been thru but, I used the words THREW. This website reviews and critics films in a different way,using humor it also tries to interject some of my technical knowledge of how films are created and made into the process.

 

image: titlte: no spoiler reviews
OK “We don’t do spoilers”; it’s my policy to be very vague about the story lines of the films I review here. I have always hated reading movie reviews that tell to much about a film. Entering a theater already having preconceived notions about the plot and / or the outcome of the film in the past have ruined the viewing experience for me,so this is why  these reviews are written this way . More info about our NO Spoiler Movie Review!

Adventureland :: movie review 2009
Adventureland starts in 1987 at a party with the James Brennan (Jesse Eisenberg) being heckled by his friends about his breakup with his girlfriend because he is a virgin, and as with most of these coming of age movies this is the underlying plot as he tries to remedy this. He is told by his parents that if he wants to attend Columbia University he must get a job so after being turned down for employment elsewhere he is  accepted at the Adventureland theme park. This is where he starts to in love with a coworker Em Lewin (Kristen Stewart), but she is already sleeping with the park mechanic and he is married. With a sound track that is very much a cross section of that era and has some great songs form great bands including Tops by The Rolling Stones from Tattoo you. Margarita Levieva was a standout in this film with her role as Lisa P. and  Kristen Stewart straight from her role as  Bella Swan in Twilight does a good job and I think kind of carries the movie in a way. With the whole 80’s thing blowing up these days I was surprised by the lack luster box office for this film as everyone in my neighborhood of Silverlake California looks like they steps out of a time machine in 1985.Well I had to really look for this film as I missed it in the beginning of this theater run, but I did get to see it in theater on a not so big screen. I try to never read over reviews of film I’m reviewing, but I did for this film and after reading the other reviewers I wanted to see this film. Well I’m going to go with the moviegoers on this one this story was slow and I really didn’t care if James got laided or not. Greg Mottola directed Superbad, wrote and directed this film and it’s just a little slow in parts and lacks the one liners and goofy humor of Superbad. There are some funny scenes and a kind of weird energy as the film is set in the past and is true to it, but it just come a bit shy of a home run more like a double. Is this a comedy or a drama? It is funny and has a story to it, the quote of this film is “…Boner “and brought a big laugh from everyone in the theater. This will be a big hit on DVD and Blu-ray and should be a strong contender this year at the MTV awards.
