Garden State: Redux
I liked Garden State. It left me feeling all warm and fuzzy. I'm not ashamed to admit it: I'm glad he got off that plane. I recently saw The Last Kiss and although I liked it, it definitely had a Garden State II feel to it, especially with respect to Natalie Portman and Rachel Bilson's characters. Brian Palmer over at The Not-So-Exciting Life of Brian Palmer has taken it upon himself to break down the similarities between the two movies in this post and I think he nailed it.
The protagonist should close his eyes often and meditate on when his life wasn’t ruled by the debilitating pain of wondering how to connect with other people, or whether he should get married and have kids.LOL! Do people even still say "LOL" anymore?
