It’s movie review day here at Glitter, Bliss, and Perfect Chaos. Today we’re seeing Justin Timberlake, Amanda Seyfried, Matt Bomer, and Alex Pettyfer’s movie, In Time.
Here’s the trailer.
The Verdict: This movie has an interesting premise. Time is the new currency. As typical in society, the poor never have enough time, the rich have more time than they need. The movie definitely has things that make you think. Like if you are working your life away, are you taking the time to enjoy it? And if you already have everything you need, are you enjoying what you have?
And did I mention that at age 25 you stop aging? Whatever you look like on your 25th birthday, that’s how you will look until your time runs out. Which makes it just a little weird when the main character is hugging his mother on her supposed 50th bday, but she looks and talks like the girl he should have been sleeping with. You get introduced to the big bad guy and his mother in law, wife, and daughter basically all look the same. He even jokes it gets confusing to him sometimes. Um, ick?
So the guy with no time, gets time, goes to the part of town where everyone has time, meets a girl with wayy too much time, and they sorta fall for each other. Here’s the thing though, if you’re a rich girl, who’s trying to be wild and just got out from under daddy’s thumb, and you’re off alone with the hot guy, and neither of you have much time left, wouldn’t your first thought be, I really wanna do him? Yes, it would. You wouldn’t sit around having all sorts of boring conversations about how people aren’t living! You’d be throwing him on the bed, and doing some living of your own. Then if you want you can like solve the rest of the world’s problems.
This movie wasn’t fantastic, this movie wasn’t bad. Justin Timberlake is a cutie. Amanda Seyfried should have totally boycotted wearing the horrible red wig in this movie. All I could think about when I was watching her was TAKE OFF THE WIG!
And speaking of time, the movie seemed a bit long to me. (109 minutes to be exact.)
Also, it was really hard for me to concentrate much about their problems when the two people I most wanted to spend my time with in the movie were not on screen nearly enough!! Case in point. Matt Bomer.
This movie would have been more exciting had it all taken place in Matt’s bed. And we were on a time limit, but then we kept getting more time, and then spending it VERY wisely.
And then there’s Alex Pettyfer. My little Alex Rider. When did he become like a MAN!?! YUM!
So, I liked him. He was nice and all, but I just kept thinking about his hot friends instead of him, and hoping that my hook up with him hadn’t ruined my chances with his friends. Cuz his friends are way hot.
One of the best things about this movie was the preview for a movie, This Means War, set to be released 2/17/12. It features two veryyyyyy sexxxxxyyyy men. Chris Pine and Tom Hardy. Check out the preview. I can’t wait to see this movie!
Just a reminder of how we rank movies here at Glitter, Bliss, and Perfect Chaos:
One Star = Walk of shame. I was in last night’s dress, carrying my shoes as I rushed off. I can’t believe I wasted my time on him and pray no one I know sees me.
Two Stars = Bad date. He didn’t really do anything wrong, we just didn’t have any chemistry. Maybe he just wasn’t my type. I probably won’t answer if he calls.
Three Stars =Hookup. We had a great night together. Don’t know if it will be more than that, but it was sure fun while it lasted.
Four Stars = Stalking him. What a night! We danced, we kissed. Now if I could just get him to call me.
Five Stars = Happily ever after. I love him! I want to marry him, have his babies, and live happily ever after.
