Finally a good teen movie

I wanted to see this film to soothe my wife. She usually loves adolescent romance stuff, so I thought I would suffer through it. Instead, I ended up liking it more than she did.

The thing about romance films and adolescence films in particular is that the kids are presented like complete idiots, like aliens from the planet Dumb. In order to keep up with this superficial image all other characters must act the same. The result is a complete fake.

The Spectacular Now is nothing like that. From the start it portrays teens as complex, intelligent, troubled about their past and their future, maybe laid back alcoholics or chronically shy or overachievers with low self esteem. And they all interact like human beings. It's a joy to see a film like this.

I also loved that they didn't use the cheap tricks of romance movies in general. No evil adversary to define the character as good, no ultimate goal to direct the entire film from point A to point B, no artificial accidents or catastrophes to move people out of their stupor, no highschool cliques, no Facebook or Twitter dramas. Instead, normal people doing normal stuff, trying to get over themselves and have a happy life.

The film was not without its flaws. It was a little too slow, for once. It only lasted an hour and a half but it felt like more. Also there is a somewhat seamless jump of a few years that takes the viewer by surprise (I still don't know when it happened). Also, I am a bit grumpy today, the film probably deserved a 9. Go watch it!

Empty Trifle

I love both Miles Teller and Shailene Woodley , and I consider Mary Elizabeth Winstead to be awesome, but hey, come on, what a piece of empty trifle, mere baloney I have just watched? I mean, I am serious, this is a total waste of time, film amd effort. Nothing deep, or sincere, or touching, or decent here. What we see is...er...drinking. Much alcohol abuse, drinking, some making out, drunken talks, empty drama, shallow development, insincere dialog, useless twists, worthless effort, and voila, what we see is a very weak, very naive, very silly childish attampt at something deep but falling miserably behind, and lagging at each step. I was rubbing my eyes in utter disbelief, trying to catch any sign of anything solid or sensational. Instead, I saw a sleepy slow boerd Woodley, and wooden boring Teller. Why was this film made? No idea. What message did it deiver? No message. What worth did it bring? Nothing. Just a dull thud, boring yawn and useless effort.
