Review - Time Traveler's Wife


Interesting title...i went to see the movie coz Papadom was sold out...since we were already at the cinema, we just took any movie and this one is the earliest (and after that we marathon with Papadom)...its actually based on a best-selling novel and i dont know whether others will love the movie...coz i like it....it is kinda slow-mo but it has its moment...and the movie is kinda touchy....in the mood for some love...

Its not the usual boy meets girl kind of movie...its a lil bit complex and hard to understand but you'll get the hang of it after a while (my friend was still having difficulties following the movie) hahaha....first up, an accident then suddenly the lil boy go naked on the street...huh? wadahek? and its actually henry (eric bana) as a child...the first time that he 'time-traveled'...cool...go time travel as pure as you coming out of a woman's womb...without a stitch...hahahah...do i forgot to mention that he is a librarian? hurmmmm...

then suddenly out of nowhere clare (Rachel McAddams) - i am still having difficulty trying not to stereotype her as the Mean Girls) came up to him and said that she had known him forever since she was young...denggg...the flabbergasted henry was seriously flabbergasted...i wish that some hot girl like Rachel McAddams would come up to me and say 'Hey you, i know you since i was 5 years old and i want to marry you'...denggg...i would die happy and gone to heaven...okay enough dreamin'...then they end up getting married...

and henry would come and go as the nature calls him for some naked adventure thru time...it even goes down to the baby as their baby vanished from the womb two times...coz the baby knows to time travel too....dengg....its gettin weird...and then henry went on to sterilized himself so that he can't impregnate clare....huh? my head went spinning already...then suddenly henry from the past time travel to the present and then clare take advantage of him by having a serious making out session in the carpark...dengggg....then she got pregnant and leave the present henry flabbergasted once again when clare told him that she is cheating on the present him with the past him which is not considered as cheating as it was him in the past coming in the future and he knew about that particular moment would happen but not knowing the fact that him in the present has sterilised himself that made clare fed up and go on to have that 'session' with him without him in the present knew that she is actually making out with him from the different timeline...difficult to understand????arkkkk...

henry still worried that the baby would be gone from the womb that he accidentally time traveled to the future where he met his daughter who can time travel as well to any time or any place that she wants....huh? okay fyneeeee....then henry travel back to his present time and named the daughter Alba since he knew that they named her that since he just got back from meeting her daughter in the future....deng complicated weihhhh....

and he also knows that he is going to die when her daughter reach 5 years old and had the daughter from the future come to his time to tell the daughter at the present time to be prepared when their father die...and he did die when he was shot by his father in law while he time travel to the woods where she first met rachel...and he is officially dead...not yet...

fast forward to the future where her daughter is about in her teens, henry from the past during the time his daughter was born time travel to the present time and rachel was actually waiting for him eventho he is dead cos she knew that one fine day her husband from the past before he got killed will come to the present time to meet them even just for a while...and the last parting words from henry was 'I don't want you to keep waiting for me'...then he's gone and its the end....

omaigottttttt....the movie is seriously complicated sort....one time in the past, next time in the future and then the guy from the past come to the future after him in the future got shot...my head went spinning while watching the movie but i seriously like it....rachel mcaddams really prove herself to be a versatile actress and break away from her regina-mean-girls role...and eric bana also had done great featuring his anguish with his unwanted-but-i-got-it-abilities-but-i-cant-control-it role...all in all...this is a flick that seriously needs you to have your brain functioning well to follow up with the timeline...or not, you'll just got lost in time....hurmmmmm
