Another writing assignment from the folks at Lost In Reviews and this time I got a chance to sit down and watch The Spectacular Now. With out going into too much detail and spoiling anything for people who might be interested in this movie, this is nothing short of perfect. This is the coming of age movie that this generation needs and will be fondly looked at years to come. Please please see this movie, I can’t recommend it enough.
Below is an excerpt from my review and a link to the full review at Lost In Reviews.
It wasn’t until I saw The Spectacular Now, that I realized that we can get a high school movie with characters who aren’t just picked out of a yearbook of archetypes and clichés, that we can get a movie with characters we can truly resonate with and a movie that we can see and relate to the pangs of growing up and not knowing what to do with life. I don’t want to say that this IS the quintessential high school/coming of age movie, but it sure feels like we are witnessing something spectacular.
