This one is a big ball of wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey… stuff. The lead finds out that he comes from a long line of men who can travel within their own life and set right what once went wrong. Along with a hologram nam… er… wait… I am getting my time travel flipped around. All I know is when we hit 88 miles per hour, we will see some serious sh*t.
Back to this movie. The main character Tim Lake (played by Bill Weasly himself Domhnall Gleeson) can indeed travel in time and change what happens in his own life. He does by, a la Groundhog Day, retrying till he gets everything right and wins the heart of the woman he loves, played by Rachel McAdams. But things go wrong, like you would expect in a time travel paradoxical way. There are always consequences to your actions and life does still have to go on.
With the particulars out of the way I shall get to the reason why I will be the first in line to see this movie when it comes out November 8th; that reason is Richard Curtis. Who is Richard Curtis you ask? Mr. Curtis is the writer of some of my favorite movies and TV shows of all time.
Not only did he write for ‘The Black Adder’, ‘Mr. Bean’, ‘The Vicar of Dibley’, and ‘Spitting Image’ but he has penned the two Bridget Jones movies, ‘Notting Hill’ and ‘War Horse’.
That still isn’t the reason why. The two main reasons why I will line up to see this movie are; he wrote the ‘Doctor Who’ episode ‘Vincent and the Doctor’ which is in my top 3 favorite episodes of that show of all time and he penned ‘Love Actually’ which happens to be in the top 3 of my all-time favorite movies list.
So yeah, I will see this movie. I will see this movie a lot.
