One Good Sci-Fi Drama
12 October 2012
Excerpt: Henry is a time traveler who cannot control his travelling either on past or future. His condition complicates his relationship with his wife whom he sees from her past and her future. *** Hearing good feedbacks of this film, I thought I would be disappointed when I saw it. Finally, I saw the film and I must say that I definitely liked it!
Excerpt: This is one of those movies that falls between good and not-so-good. Good because the performances are solid and the plot is interesting. Not-so-good because all the mystery of why he time travels and how he came to have this power is not really expanded upon, thus leaving you scratching your head and not feeling all that concerned at the final outcome. However this recent used purchase was good enough (since the wife liked it) to make a space on my shelf for it.
Summary: A modern age "Somewhere in Time" but with a different twist of "The Notebook." I felt there was some unnecessary dialogue that could have kept the pace of the story faster and more interesting. The two leads have on-screen chemistry and the scenes were not that cheesy for a romantic drama with a touch of science fiction elements. The dates can be confusing and its conclusion was just depressing. Themes of trust and dealing adverse situations is presented vividly.
Summary: This movie made me cry twice. It cleared up all confusion about chronology and time travel technicalities that I had when reading the book. It's a chick flick for sure. Manipulative and heartbreaking and sappy and romantic. You might not like it if you are a dude or a cold heartless girl. I thought it was pretty quality, though. Another great movie to get you laid.
Excerpt: Movie: I've always been fascinated by time travel and I'm happy to say this movie handled it well although I strongly disagree with the take that you can't change the future. As for the romance part of the movie it was also done very well and it makes you wish someone loved you even a fraction of the amount that Claire loves Henry. Video: Beautiful scenes and colors. The meadow scenes are breathtaking. Only gets a 4.5 because the scenery isn't very complex.
Excerpt: Amazing movie. One of the most original things I've seen in a long long time. I don't usually like romance movies but this was really something else. It brought so much more to than just the romance. The story is excellently told, while the man is the lead it follows more of the woman's time line which really, in order to understand you'd have to watch the movie which I highly recommend.
Summary: I was really looking forward to this one simply because I could get my wife to watch a Sci-Fi. I was not disappointed. I did drag at times and lacked some drama. But, it was a solid romance with good performances. A good flick for two.
