1. Lake House with Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock
There are two possible reasons to watch this movie: to watch a love story or to find out how they explain the extraordinary occurrence of letters transporting through time. Personally, I’ve seen enough love stories. They all follow the same basic format (at least most of the cheesy ones do) of boy meets girl and falls in love, boy loses girl, and boy gets girl back, presumably for happily ever after. They can be sweet. But rent Sabrina if that’s what you’re looking for. I wanted to see how they explain the *magic* mailbox and the letters transporting through two years of time. The explanation? Not even touched. It could have been so much more, but they didn’t even deal with the issue. Bummer. And I’m not even going to touch on the plot holes left by the time traveling communications and how changing the past could change the future.
2. Lucky Number Slevin starring Bruce Willis, Josh Hartnett, Lucy Liu, Morgan Freeman, Sir Ben Kingsley, and a slew of other actors you may or may not recognize.
Awesome. I can’t believe Josh Hartnett could keep up with the bigger names in this film. All the actors were awesome. And the story was airtight. Suspenseful. Exciting. Did I say awesome yet? RENT THIS!
