‘Tis the season of the BLOCKBUSTER…
Okay, everyone – I know that I’m a TAD late with this review. But with good reason – I didn’t get to see this film until YESTERDAY evening, so I decided that when I had some time this afternoon, I would cough up this review and start my (hopefully) unbroken 2012 film review streak.
Now that my
excuse explanation is out of the way, let me go over one thing before I start: I am debuting a NEW format as to how I write my reviews, not necessarily because my old format sucked, but because I think that’s the reason why I’ve been slacking on reviews. Rather than divide my review into 4 sections, I’m just going to write what I’m feeling about each respective film at the moment. In other words, I’ll be combining the first 3 sections into an essay-like format, while my “Conclusion” will basically be a bulleted version of my “Pros” and “Cons” followed by my final score (from 1-5 stars). As with writing in this format, I’ll be giving away very minor SPOILERS in order to get some of my points across. Any review where I give away something significant will always have “SPOILERS” in the title, but from now on, I’m not going to consider minor plot details as spoilers for the sake of being able to give a better review experience for all.
So let’s get on with the show! My first movie review for 2012 is the Jason Reitman-directed Young Adult, starring Charlize Theron, Patton Oswalt, and Patrick Wilson. Does this Diablo Cody-written film have the potential to bring home some statues this awards season? Well, click on the link and find out!
