Adventureland ★★★★★

Obviously not a “perfect” film, but there’s something about this one that just completely resonates with me. Maybe it’s the incredibly accurate depiction of finding camaraderie in shitty jobs, maybe it’s something about James and his post-college feeling of general aimlessness, maybe it’s just the hazy nostalgia of it all (despite the 80s setting, it really doesn’t “feel” like an 80s movie and reminds me a lot of my high school and college years), but regardless, there’s something that I just really love about it and strikes a deep chord. I watch it at least once or twice a year and it still hasn’t gotten old.
