Not necessarily "Romcoms" that's a generalisation but Romance movies more along the lines of these that gave off similar vibes…
The Time Traveler's Wife
Due to a genetic disorder, handsome librarian Henry DeTamble involuntarily zips through time, appearing at various moments in the life of his true love, the beautiful artist Clare Abshire.
feeling very at peace with my inner woman right now.
Rachel McAdams is always great in every role shes in and its always a pleasure to watch her movies, but unfortunately this time it was not enough to make me enjoy the film. The only good thing about The Time Travelers Wife was McAdams performance because the rest of the movie was just a chaotic mess. It was very difficult to follow the logic of every sequence. I dont have a problem with non-linear films (I am a huge fan of the Lost series so this is not an issue for me) but I found this movie too distracting with so many cuts back and forth. For example Rachel s character has met Eric Bana several times before he actually…
This film may as well have taken a shit on the original novel.
This glossy adaptation of Audrey Niffenegger’s staggeringly popular 2003 sci-fi romance takes a couple of ludicrous liberties and botches the central relationship, but has a handful of hugely persuasive moments all the same.
It tells the cyclical, ingeniously-conceived story of time-traveller Henry (Eric Banana) and the titular character, Clare (Rachel McAdams). She meets him for the first time when she is six and he is 38; he meets her for the first time when he is 28 and she is 20. And, as in the book, they fall in love, quarrel, search for a cure and try to conceive (cue the most unrealistic fake tummy of all time: it looks like a papier mache-covered balloon, then coloured in with a…
Last time around (a spoiler-tagged review)...
After watching The Phantom Carriage early yesterday, I really didn't see much reason to watch another movie. After all, what could possibly stand up to the comparison? So, I rather picked up one of my novels collecting dust. I bought Audrey Niffenegger's The Time Traveler's Wife after I revisited the movie last time (the above linked), but haven't picked it up until yesterday.
I wasn't all that impressed with the novel to be honest. It obviously dig a little deeper than the movie, and it has several elements that could elevate it to something larger, but I don't really think she succeeded very well. It's still quite shallow, it doesn't answer some of the…
My mother told me this was sad. My boyfriend told me it was sad. Teenage girls told me the book was sad when I was a teenager. Still, I decided to watch it alone, at the loneliest time.
I am sad.
De alguna manera me recordó a "Una cuestión de tiempo" (Y no sólo porque la protagonista fuera la misma, se ve que se está especializando en paradojas temporales), aunque la de "Una cuestión de tiempo" (About Time, 2013), me gustó más.
Me daba una pereza enorme verla no sé por qué, pero al final la verdad es que me gustó. Sólo la música un poco demasiado a lo música de peli romántica y difuminada con personajes de sobremesa, me parece que hacía perder puntos al conjunto.
No estuvo mal.
poor adaption of the book and terrible casting for Henry
This is some crazy shit. If Twilight could be read as a pro-abstinence allegory, this seems to be arguing that a woman doesn't have the right to choose. The eventual dimensions of the plot here come out of left field, and the movie never addresses how truly disturbing or demeaning it is. Poor McAdams is forced to play a remarkably passive woman who has two momentary bouts of rebellion amid what seems to be a lifetime of silent suffering. Her time, her body, and her fate are all played with by a man who purportedly loves her, yet judges her too weak to make adult decisions time and again. Shockingly, it is played as romance.
Very touching picture. A lot of time travel paradoxes as well eheheheh
I wasn't expecting time traveling to be a metaphor for chronic illness, which works surprisingly well, but overall this movie is disappointingly bland. I'm still pissed off that it made me cry.
"It's actually kind of magical."
I'm glad this had a happy ending.
The premise is creepy and it got to a point where I just wanted the movie to end. I did enjoy it for a little while though but that may be because of Rachel McAdams...
Not as great as the book
