Queerty is better as a member
Just watched Geography Club last night on Amazon. Not as good as the book. I knew and worked with the author for a bit a few years back when the website he wrote for was small and not yet owned by MTV/LOGO. The movie deviates from the storyline and not always for the best. The leads have no chemistry and consequently I simply didn’t care about their romance (which is more assumed than depicted) and people who were his friends in the book aren’t really and so they don’t seem to have much chemistry either. The movie spends too much time on minor parts of the story, made-up parts, and ancillary characters that Russell’s story ends up getting lost. It was well-shot, I’ll give it that. Casting was strong, considering. Mostly, the failings were in the weak script and some apathetic direction.
@Jake357: I agree about GEOGRAPHY CLUB: no chemistry and they look too dang old for the roles. Check out GBF for a dose of gay in high school awesomeness.
WOLF OF WALL STREET is about people I wouldn’t like in real life being assholes to each other and pigs in general. That’s entertainment!
DELIVERY MAN is a crappy American remake of the 2011 French/Canadian STARBUCK. Watch that instead, it’s far superior to Vince Vaughn’s groaner.
THE GREAT BEAUTY is impressive, but those Italians just don’t know when to stop (which in this case should have been following the wedding).
If you haven’t already and get the chance, John Goode’s Foster High series is waaaaayyy better than the Geography Club series. It’s a totally rose-colored-glasses world but it has some darkness to it as well. It’ll make you wish you were 17 again.
