TheTime Traveler's Wife
As it seems I can barely string a coherent sentence together nowadays, this isn't a review - just my feelings about the move.
I've been waiting a couple of years for this movie to come out, but after reading the reviews, I decided I would't see it. My attempt at movie abstinence lasted about 2 weeks (that seems to be about the longest I can abstain from anything - well, anything that matters).
Turns out, I should have stayed home and waxed my legs. Eric Bana was the biggest disappointment of the movie for me. (Hmm...I think I said the same thing after watching Star Trek.) I've seen him play some pretty intense roles, so I know he can do it, yet his Henry was, for the most part, bland and boring. I thought that Rachel McAdams was fairly impressive as Claire. Thanks to her, I was wiping away tears as I walked out of the theatre. Fortunately, the last scene in the book was omitted, or I would have been sobbing.
Also annoying was the fact that a couple of middle-aged women (who obviously hadn't read the book) in the theatre kept giggling when Henry would appear naked. Fine, Eric Bana has a really nice ass, but grow up already.
If any of you decide to see this movie, I'd suggest you read the book instead. It's truly a beautiful story. Heartwrenching, but beautiful.
