He DOES look like the older bro in ET! Good call. And good job on making Broseph look like the lowly douche that he is. And SUPERBAD sucked.

I've been waiting for a long time for Mottola to "arrive". So far I've loved everything he's done, including all of those amazing episodes of Arrested Development, so this is fantastic news. I'm officially psyched. I'll be even more pleased when I get to see The Daytrippers again.

no "web." For sure there was a net, and local BBS's. Oh, the late 80's have more in common with the early 90's. Classic 80's ambience was from 82 to 85.

Mottola on Jesse: "He's got a lot of Woody in him." Nice job!

...everyone likes this movie so much. I have tons of respect for Mottola, but I thought this movie was really not worth my time. I didn't even pay for it and I felt let down. Leaving aside the fact that it's not very funny, it was just about people I would never want to meet in real life. This was not a Say Anything for me--there are stories about teenagers and young adults growing into adulthood that make you think nostalgically about the person you were back then, and there are movies that make you ashamed to have ever been that age. For me, this was one of the latter.

You had about two years of '70s seepage at the beginning and then everything we think of as '80s peaked right around '87. From there you had another distinct early '90s period that lasted from '88 to '94.

There's no will be about it. I saw it. I thought it was boring, vaguely pretentious, and unlikeable. Maybe I'm in the minority--in a way I hope so, because I like Mottola and would like him to make some more stuff I like. But this movie just reminded me how much I hate young people--a neat trick to pull on someone who's only 27. Maybe it's a distance thing. I know my brother didn't like Superbad because it reminded him of how much he hated high school kids, and he had just graduated. I dunno.

And so does every other band that's on the soundtrack. I heard Hüsker Dü is on there...that's pretty fucking awesome.

Terrible band. Boring. Their music always reminded me of the '80s version of KISS.

From that point on I thoroughly enjoyed Adventureland. Love love the Replacements. They sound nothing like KISS.
