I really need to stop saying “I don’t really watch Sci-Fi movies” because I’m finding more and more that I enjoy. This is another one that I watched for lack of anything else to watch and ended up enjoying it.

I haven’t watched the trailer…so let me go do that before Realweegiemidget Reviews tells me to focus on the topic at hand 😉 I’m already treading on thin ice because yet again my poll selection won for the time travel theme this month.

Ok…trailer watched…

“For me, it’s been an eternity”…that’s exactly the point you need to understand from the trailer. It really has been an eternity for Tom CruiseCage as he finds himself in an endless cycle of repetitions. Endless Reset buttons…

Don’t be put off by the outlandish creatures faced on combat or think this is totally absurd (I mean yes, the trailer makes it look that). Rather, ignore that aspect and focus on Emily Blunt and Tom Cruise in the trailer. You’ll find yourself quite curious. What does she mean by wanting to start over. Or “come visit me when you wake up”. It all becomes clear.

Basically, we have a type of time travel movie where the characters find themselves in the same spot over and over yet with slightly different knowledge this being able to change the outcome of that same situation. It is really cleverly done. The only “negative” is that there could have been a more elegant closure of this cycle…to be honest, I got the impression that no matter how brilliant the concept was…there was no way out…but don’t let that put you off. It is fantastic and the trailer doesn’t do the movie full justice.

So…don’t delay. Go give it a watch!

The Time Traveler’s Wife (2 Reel Quirky Cats September (P)review)

(A Random Trailer (P)review)

Here’s another time travel romantic drama with Rachel McAdams. The Time Traveler’s Wife. This time, she’s partnered with Eric Bana as her time traveling partner.

I find this story a lot heavier, a lot sadder than the previous trailer we did for About Time. While this one looks absolutely beautiful and draws me, I felt I didn’t really understand the actual movie when I watched it. Or maybe, I just wasn’t in the right time for it. Yes, it was really nice from what I remember but somehow I didn’t get the satisfaction I’d been hoping for.

But the trailer…it’s just beautiful. It shows that life isn’t always easy. Love stories aren’t always happy and uplifting but rather have their ups and downs as in real life. The story has Clare (Rachel McAdams) falling in love with Henry (Eric Bana). The catch to this relationship is that Henry travels through time. And we see how this couple interact, meet, fall in love during different ages in Clare‘s life. What I enjoy about this trailer is that it doesn’t give the entire movie away. The “problem” to be overcome isn’t disclosed or made obvious. It gives just enough to make you wonder what the explanation is and how these two will make it work. In fact, having watched the trailer again now, quite some time after having watched the whole movie, I’m really tempted to give it another go. It looks very sweet and special. But not quite sure…

So Realweegiemidget, thanks for choosing this one. It might, maybe, maybe, just get another chance in my To Watch list.

Ah….sigh…I love this movie.

Just delightful…as is the trailer…

So, the story, as you’ve by now gathered, is about a guy who can travel in time. But, for once, this concept is presented in a such a beautiful and believable way that I actually don’t mind the time travel concept (I’m usually not a big fan to be honest, hence I nearly missed this movie in the first place). Rachel McAdams and Domhnall Gleeson make such a wonderful couple. And, as you can see from the trailer, there are awkward moments (didn’t we all have those on first dates or first encounters?) and…they’re realistic ones, believable oopses. Yes, here, unlike reality, Tim (Gleeson) is able to travel back in time to change things to his liking. But, as we all know, everything in life impacts everything else so a teeny tiny change isn’t always going to work out the way he expects. But, I won’t give away any more…it is the trailer we’re focusing on after all.

Watch it. Enjoy it. There are serious bits and there are light bits. All-in-all it teaches you are really good lesson.
