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.
Film # 14 of the "Scavenger Hunt # 6" Challenge
Task # 3: A film featuring time travel
How do you build a life with someone who literally constantly disappears? This is the thing Clare struggles with in “The Time Traveler’s Wife”. When she is a little girl, Clare meets Henry. He tells her that he travels through time. From that moment on Clare is impressed by Henry, writes down every date she meets him in her diary and she is sure Henry is her dream guy. When she is in her twenties, she meets Henry again in a library. At that point, Henry doesn’t recognize her. The Henry that was visiting young Clare was an older version.…
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…
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Questo è uno di quei rarissimi casi in cui il film è meglio del libro.
Non c'è l'approfondimento psicologico che si sarebbe potuto avere in un libro di fronte a temi come l'assenza di libero arbitrio, ma perlomeno la Clare del film si fa qualche domanda e la relazione non è tutta rosa e fiori. In più l'hanno reso meno creepy (nel libro Henry fa sesso con Clare diciottenne e lei quando lui muore rimane ad aspettarlo fino alla fine) e meno "crudo" (nel libro a Henry amputano i piedi e quando deve convincere il dottore di saper viaggiare nel tempo gli rivela che il futuro figlio è handicappato) e hanno sorvolato su scene "strane" (Henry-adolescente che masturba Henry-adolescente2, Henry…
I am going to write a time-travel romance film, specifically where Rachel McAdams is the one doing the traveling.
Rachael McAdams is so beautiful in this role, especially as a brunette, but I still can't get over how much of a bitch she was in Mean Girls. Still adored this film.

The first hour is a total snooze fest.
Time travel romance happens to be one of my all time favorite genres but it's like they removed everything interesting from time travel and left in all the annoying bits.. like marital problems.
Nolan hätte aus dem Thema bzw. der Buchvorlage ein Meisterwerk gemacht...und das ohne in den Kitsch abzugleiten! Alle Zutaten waren vorhanden. Schade um Rachel McAdams und Eric Bana - die ich wirklich gerne sehe.
Those are the shittiest time travelling skills I've ever seen.
Al menos en la pareja hay cierta química pero es el rizo del rizo de las paradojas temporales. Hay un punto en que se da tanta vuelta de tuerca que dentro de lo imposible que pudiera ser además sería hecho bastante improbable, aunque no sé, ya me he hecho un lio. Menos mal que acaba como acaba porque el protagonista en cualquier momento se iba a encontrar consigo mismo en todas las dçecadas de su vida. Porque soy fan de Rachel McAdams....
