Movie time: The Time Traveler's Wife and Aliens in the Attic

I always look forward for the weekend coz it's movie time week for me :) A time to relax and watch movie with your love ones or even with yourself. My friend Jacque and I went to watch The Time Traveler's Wife last thursday night (after work) at Robinsons Manila. We got the last full showing so we went first to Kenny Roger's to eat. We had a blast at Kenny coz it's been a while sinc we dine there :) I remembered that we always go to Kenny to eat every Friday. But lately we eat at some fastfood chains often. Yes, we miss Kenny (*sniff* lol)...

The Time Traveler's Wife is a romantic, novel-based film. It stars Eric Bana and Rachel McAdams. The story revolves around their love story. Eric character is Henry who has a genetic disorder were he suddenly disappears and travel in time. While Rachel acted as Claire the wife of Henry. Eventhough Henry will be gone from time to time he still tries to make up for his wife. The day of their wedding he disappeared but appeared as a different time Henry. He got older! (hahaha) But at the reception he returned. However problem arises when Claire got pregnant. She had difficulty in having a baby because the baby turns out to be a time traveler too and travels unborn. This hurt Henry to see his wife depressed. He then went to see a doctor to do sterile operation on his part. This made Claire hurt even more. But later on that day she received a call from a different time Henry asking for help and she made sure to get pregnant this time around (get the picture, lol). With God blessings she got pregnant :) and the baby was born safely and also can time travel but she can control it. He met his daughter when he travelled in time (future) and got to learn his death. He went on his life eventhoguh he is counting those days he will be together with his family. He died when his daughter was only five-years-old. Four years after his death, his past-time-travel-self travelled in the future and met his family again. So they only got to see him trough his past on the meadow where he and Claire first met.

My verdict:

Popcorn: 4/5 popcorns :)

The film was really great. A different love sotry. Though it's fictional in the sense of the time traveling part, but their love story was real. I also have fun watching the body of Eric Bana but I wish it was Brad Pitt's body (hahaha!). I don't see a good chemistry between Eric and Rachel though. But their acting was good enough to justify their role. :) If you love romantic story, you better watch this.

I got bored at home and since it will be the beginning of Ramadhan then so why not do something for yourself before that big day begins. Why not treat yourself a movie? This is my third time watching a film by myself. I know it is weird watching film by yourself but it can also be enjoyable so long as the film is good;-).

Aliens in the Attic is a family film by 20th Century Fox And Regency Enterprises. This film is about aliens trying to envade the earth but got beaten up by children. I enjoyed this film that it made my day yesterday. Laughing, eating my popcorn, no one beside me... so relaxing! hehehe

My Verdict:

Popcorn: 4/5

A family day movie! Bring the whole family and watch how children fight the enemies...

Still waiting fro my sister to be able to watch UP... anyone tried this on 3D?

Next stop: UP and G-Force (whew!)
