All the time travel films I can think of (and that I have seen) in order of greatness.
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.
This film may as well have taken a shit on the original novel.
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.
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…
Time Travel is a tricky thing. Paradoxes, Space/Time Continuums and all manner of plot holes manifest when you start skipping people through time. It was done best in the film, Primer, such a head-trip movie that it CANNOT be grasped in one viewing. I think what they did on Lost also went a long way in making sure everything makes sense after the fact, because time travel can also be used as a device by many a weak and worthless writer. Exhibit A: The series – HEROES. Exhibit B: The Terminator Franchise. There could, and may be in the future, a whole other rant on sloppy time travel storytelling however, this film does time travel somewhat properly and, by the…
7/10: Very touching love story. Girls, pls have your tissues handy.
The 'hero' was much more likable than the character in the book, good story adapted well for film.
This is a unique spin on time travel, namely, what effect could time travel have on a normal relationship. The themes are handled thougtfully, with maturity. There are many poignant moments, even sad ones (keep the Kleenex nearby just in case). Eric bana and Rachel Mc Adams are good in their respective roles. Recommended.
A family movie about grooming. Not something I ever thought I'd write in a film review but then I never thought I'd be living in the middle of a desert, so it goes to show.
Not the best book adaptation.
amy adams's performance was really annoying for the first ~20 minutes, then it got good.
What the fuck was that all about?
If I'm a sucker for a particular type of movie, it's a good romance. However, I feel like most romantic films are pretty dull. The idea that if two people are in love and this is enough emotion to carry a feature film is rarely the case. But throw in a sci-fi twist coupled with amazing performances from the likes of Eric Bana and Rachel McAdams and you have a winner.
This film is full of heart and explores the emotion of love in a different way than the average film. What is the love you feel for you're significant other in the past, present and future? what happens when that love crosses over time? A unique exploration told in…
