I love it when two movies I want to see open on the same weekend. It really makes me count down the days til Friday. Such was the case a couple weeks ago when I went to see "I Love You, Man" on Friday afternoon and "Duplicity" the following day. I actually preferred the twists of "Duplicity" over the fun of "Man". The latter just wasn't as funny as I hoped. Still a good movie, though.
This weekend, the two on my plate are "Adventureland" and "Fast & Furious". I've been looking forward to seeing "Adventureland" ever since I first heard about it a few months ago. The director of it directed my favorite movie of 2007, "Superbad". It also takes place in the 80's (1987, to be exact) and regular readers know what a big fan I am of the decade. Much of the movie takes place at an amusement park, one of my favorite places to be. The Tomato reading right now on "Adventureland" is 92%! I highly doubt I'll be let down by the flick the day after tomorrow.
