Time Traveler's Wife, The (2009) "The Time Traveler's Wife" is another romantic drama that is based on a "best-selling" novel.  However, this time it is a little more of a mixture of genres than, say, "The Notebook" or "Nights at Rodanthe."  This film has a bit of science fiction in it and visual effects.  Still, the film fails to truly impress. It is rare that best-selling novels turn into great movies.  Take the Harry Potter series.  The movies are entertaining, but they are not classic movies based on the book.  The same applies to "The Time Traveler's Wife."  The film has some major plot holes and leaves a lot to be desired.  I promise you, this will be a movie that you will reinvent in your mind. Obviously, the filmmakers were limited to events based in the book, however, I could see the film taking different turns ...

New York, I Love You (2009) "New York, I Love You" is a sequel to an independent film, Pairs Je t'aime, which covered the love relationships of persons in Paris.  This follow-up takes place in New York.  As with most sequels, this film is not nearly as good as the original.  In fact, the film is masked by obscure directors' intentions. "New York, I Love You" is compiled of segments shot by several different directors.  Leaving out the fact that this is a sequel, many audiences will find the film pointless.  Not knowing about the premise, one would expect the storylines to intersect in the end, much like "Love Actually."  Alas, they do not.  Each segment is so bland that you just want to skip to the next one and then the next one and the next one, out wait we've reached the end of the film ...

Love Happens (2009) It is my sad duty to report that "Love Happens" is another typical Hollywood romance film that is quickly forgotten.  In fact, this film appeared and disappeared in its initial release in no time flat.  I held the disc trying to remember when or if this film was ever theatrically released.  That should tell you all enough right there, but in case you need a bit more, here you go… "Love Happens" is about a self-help guru, author guy named Dr. Burke Ryan (Aaron Eckhart) and his love interest, Eloise (Jennifer Aniston).  Ryan is in Seattle, giving a seminar to help people grieve and move on from losing their loved ones.  Meanwhile, he meets the hotel florist, Eloise and immediately falls head over heels. The problem with Ryan is that he lost his wife in a car accident three years earlier, which ...

Starman (1984) When we typically think of alien movies, we think of high-action war between aliens and the human race.  It is rare to see an alien movie that attempts to deal more with the human-alien relationship.  "Starman" does just that.  However, it does not deviate totally for the stereotypical. The film was released in 1984 and directed by John Carpenter.  Carpenter is most remembered for his directorial work of "The Thing" two years prior to "Starman."  In this film Carpenter brings the audience an emotional bond between human and alien. As the film opens, Voyager II is being sent off into space carry a message of peace.  Whoever is to find the probe, it is hoped, will come visit Earth.  One night, army intelligence picks up an unidentified bogey that is heading toward the Earth's atmosphere.  When they blast the craft, it changes ...

I can't quite make up my mind about "'About Last Night….'"  The film has some interesting traits, but overall I tend to lean toward the negative side on this film.  The film doesn't star all the Brat Pack actors, but there are a couple thrown into this one.  Fresh off "St. Elmo's Fire," Rob Lowe and Demi Moore return to this comedic drama by Edward Zwick. Director Edward Zwick is better known for his work on "Legends of the Fall."  More recently, Zwick has directed "The Last Samurai" and "Defiance."  His work on "'About Last Night…'" is adequate but does not retain its appeal over time. When the film first came out in 1986 it struck a chord with several moviegoers.  In terms of the 1980s, the film captures what single life was like.  However, 20 plus years later, the film does ...
