MoviesOnline sat down with Kristen Stewart (“Twilight,” “Into the Wild”) to talk about her new movie, “Adventureland,” written and directed द्वारा Greg Mottola (“Superbad”). The film features a talented cast that also includes Jesse Eisenberg (“The Squid and the Whale”), Ryan Reynolds (“Definitely, Maybe,” “X-Men Origins”), and “Knocked Up” cast members Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader, and Martin Starr.

It’s the summer of 1987, and हाल का college grad James Brennan (Jesse Eisenberg) can't wait to embark on his dream tour of Europe. But when his parents (Wendie Malick and Jack Gilpin) announce they can no longer afford to subsidize his trip, James takes a menial job at a local amusement park. Instead of German beer, world-famous museums and cute French girls, James’ summer will now be filled with belligerent dads, stuffed pandas, and screaming kids high on cotton candy. Lucky for him, what should have been his worst summer ever turns into an amazing adventure as he discovers प्यार in the most unlikely place with his captivating co-worker, Em (Kristen Stewart).

DISCLAIMER: Neither Em, nor any of the other characters that appear in Adventureland, belong to me. Instead I must make due with creating my own stories for them. Pardon my artistic license as I add a few characters here and there.

Most people look back at their past experiences and sigh with content. All they remember is the times they did well: no regrets, no sorrows. There's only memories of hanging out with their फ्रेंड्स on Saturday nights, going to the फिल्में and eating popcorn. Not me. My entire life has been fucked since the दिन I entered eighth grade. It's like from that day, the world has just been a black hole, sucking out all of the good stuff and leaving me with shit.

The दिन I started eighth grade was the beginning of many firsts. At the time, some of the things seemed pretty great, but now that my life's moved on, I feel like I should have been arrested for even existing. I really hope that some day, if some kid finds the crap that I'm लेखन down, maybe they'll think...

Another Ryan Reynolds Fic and well enjoy. It's set during the time of when Mike finds out that James likes Em a lot and got jealous over her. Just बिना सोचे समझे and bit of OOC.

It been a few days since James joined Adventureland and well things hasn't went to plan as Mike watched him and notice that he's flirting and getting close to Em, known as Emily, and well he isn't liking this as he just wants her to himself.

Working on twister, a new ride that the place got that week as he just testing it out, making sure that it's going right and that no one doesn't get hurt while riding it, Mike's mind got thinking of how to get rid of James to stay away from her but then smirks as he saw Lisa walking द्वारा with her friend and thought that maybe he should get her with James to get him to back away from Em.

NOT MY WORK!

Em knew she wasn't gay. But over the summer, as her affair with Conell became और aggressive, she was desperately seeking something other than the rough touch of a man.

Girls were और polished, she decided. Soft. Gentle. There was no chance of them hurting her the way men were able to.

There were things about girls she'd always noticed and liked. The silkiness of their hair and skin, their defined figures, the way they could look beautiful without trying...

Okay, so maybe she was bisexual. But these were feelings. Did labels matter in the end?

-x-

It wasn't the first time she'd seen Lisa P., who was really just Lisa to Em, strutting around the park, flashing her smile at every boy in the vicinity and snapping her gum.

But it was the first time Em had truly looked at her. Really seen her.

riginally, I only watched Adventureland because Kristen starred, and it didn't hurt that Ryan Reynolds was in it too. The trailers are a bit misleading, but it's really just an honest coming-of-age story set in the 80s (if आप प्यार nostalgic music...). I was wary of the fact the director also did Superbad--which I saw in theaters and I ask myself why--and that just wasn't my cup of humor, but Jesse Eisenberg's quirky but cute portrayal of James had me laughing. And Kristen? Well, आप can guess my thoughts.



I don't know when my Twilight blog turned into a commentary about Kristen but I just find her completely fascinating, and I'm certainly not alone in my sentiments because so are the people that know and have worked with her.

Anyway, this time I watched Adventureland with the DVD commentary दिया द्वारा Jesse Eisenberg and Greg Mottola--who wrote his film semi-autobiographically, and I picked up all the bits where Kristen is mentioned. Their funny dialogue is mostly about the music, filming logistics, and the director's personal experiences, but there are some interesting notes about Kristen that I did my best to transcribe for आप (these also...

Though it's set at a low-rent amusement park, Adventureland is essentially a summer camp movie, a nostalgia-tinged look back at the balmy nights and summer flings आप may या may not have had in your youth. Nothing in the movie really justifies its setting in 1987, despite some laughs about Falco's "Rock Me Amadeus" and trendy fashion, but it does help add a retro-cool sheen to what's essentially a very standard coming-of-age dramedy. Coming off Superbad, Mottola is dialing up the sentimentality and realism here, and what he achieves is admirable if a little ho-hum.

He made a swell pick द्वारा casting Jesse Eisenberg, kind of a brainier Michael Cera, in the lead role. As James, a college graduate whose big युरोप trip is replaced with a stint working games at Adventureland, Eisenberg is awkward and geeky and infinitely relatable, translating the teenage angst he showed in The Squid and the ह्वेल, व्हेल into a और adult kind of ennui.

Adventureland is almost entire James's story, with a brief dip या two into the story of Em (Kristen Stewart), the sulky girl whom James is immediately smitten with when he begins his thankless job at the games booth. Living with a...

The Adventureland reviews are here, and they’re not (coconut) shy to tell आप what they think. Looks like we might have a minor classic on our hands.

The ‘Adventureland’ theme park is actually a real place in Long Island, New York, and the movie is based on the director’s own experiences working there as a teenager.

Here’s what the movie critics are saying -

LA Times -

“The thing to know about “Adventureland” is not just that it has goals above its station but that it actually achieves them. With the help of a talented cast and a potent soundtrack, it takes that most overdone of contemporary genres, the coming-of-age story, and made it engaging, bittersweet and even fun.”

Hollywood Reporter -

“While packed with atmospheric details and particulars, it’s universal teen theme reaches beyond any specific generation या place. In the ongoing tradition of “American Graffiti” and “Fast Times as Ridgemont High,” “Adventureland” will be a high grader at the boxoffice and in rental.”
