This week's Thursday Movie Picks is Amusement Parks

---


Summer is supposedly the month for amusement parks, hence the theme for today. Mine is a theme within a theme...it's all the "lands"

Adventureland (2009)
Set in the 80s, a recent college graduate takes up a job at a local amusement park. I remember this the least, as I saw this the earliest out of my picks today, but I do remember liking it.

Zombieland (2009)
If you haven't seen this, it's basically a zombie road trip comedy and in the later half of the movie (not a spoiler) the characters go to an amusement park. Recommended.

Tomorrowland (2015)
It's a pity that Tomorrowland is actually boring because there were bits of it that look pretty awesome but nothing comes together and everything just seem a little pointless. The gist; a young boy genius enters some science/inventor contest at an amusement park and gets to glimpse into some futuristic magical world. However, for reasons I can't recall, he grows up a sort of recluse and pessimistic about the future. That is of course until he meets a teen girl who has a passion for science and together they...I don't know what they actually achieve in the end...renew the world's faith in science?

  1. We matched up with Zombieland and Adventureland. I never bothered with Tomorrowland. That looked awful.

    1. Tomorrowland - I thought the trailer made it look adventurous and fun, which was why I saw it...despite the already non flattering reviews that had already come out then.

  2. I think thse will all be popular today. I agree about Tomorrowland, it was so dull and kinda awkward to watch.

    1. Hey you saw Zombieland...I didn't think you'd watch a zombie flick...but I guess this is the funny kind.

  5. I thought about all these movies but ended up just picking Adventreland. I really like Zombieland though, I'll probably end up picking it for something else.
