The Time Traveler's Wife

Looking forward to this - yes, yes, it's another movie based on a book by the same name (author and I also share the same first name - hehe) - definitely shows how lazy I've become, but hey, when you've been disappointed by as many books as I have, sometimes a movie becomes an easy 2-hour preview to a possibly good book.

So yea, looking forward to Time Traveler's Wife with Rachel McAdams. Sucks that Eric Bana is it in too. Can't stand Bana, he's basically an older version of Orlando Bloom, talentless and barely good looking. The only person who I can think is less attractive than both of them is Ben Affleck. Rachel McAdams is good - she's like a more commercial Natalie Portman.

Anyhoo - the story's pretty unique, about a man who has a genetic disorder that causes him to time travel involuntarily, just like epilepsy. Interesting concept - I've always loved time travelling movies, only problem I have is when they repeat the same scene over and over again. Drives me nuts. Hope it doesn't happen in this movie. The director hasn't done anything exciting though, the only movie I recognize from his work is Flightplan (with Jodie Foster) and that wasn't very exciting at all. Hate movies that's shot only in one venue (think Phone Booth, Panic Room).

Tempted to borrow the book and start reading it. Apparently the movie is scheduled for release on Christmas Day 2008, in the US that is. The rest of us folks living in the third world will likely have to wait forever after that, if it even comes to our shores! Photos from the film!
