I was very impressed with the unexpected depth found in Greg Mottola’s Adventureland, and both Mr. Sparkle and our pal Eric from Scene-Stealers (who compared it to Say Anything…) agree it is still one of the best movies we’ve seen this year. If you’re counting, that’s three strong recommendations for you check it out today on DVD or Blu-ray.
I’ll also give a shout-out to the second (and final) season of Life also hitting stores today. The show starred Damian Lewis as a cop freed from prison after serving 12-years for a crime he didn’t commit. Throw in Sarah Shahi, Adam Arkin, and even a little Gabrielle Union, not to mention good writing and excellent characters, and you’ll understand why I still haven’t forgiven NBC for pulling the plug.
