Finally watched InTime and it turned out to be a waste of my time…

I did not like this movie and I should have. Why, you may ask?  Well, I love dystopian films. I like writer/director Andrew Niccol‘s previous projects (Gattaca anyone?).  I like the interesting concept. I like Justin Timberlake (he is a natural).  I like Amanda Seyfried (has talent).  I like Cillian Murphy, a lot (super talented).  Yet, with all that going for it– I still did not like it. 

Something was missing.  Plot? Solid mythology? Character development? Plausible arc?  I don’t know…something.  Throughout I kept thinking–which was probably the big mistake–(maybe I should have NOT been thinking)–why is this happening?  Why aren’t they doing that?  Once I turned to my daughter (Vieve) and said “That doesn’t make sense…”  And she appropriately replied, “Sense has nothing to do with it…leave logic out of this!”   She was correct.  But, even removing logic and sense, I still did not like it.

Oh well!  They can’t all be winners.  🙂

Who is nediunedited? A lover of cinema since the age of seven! All kinds–all genres. Films (TV and Books, too) have shaped my life–they were my escape, my inspiration and even my first role models. I do not rate my films in the traditional sense (no stars, grades, etc.)–instead I give you my opinion and my take on it–I do not give traditional plot summaries either, because I want you to go in clear–ready for your own experience. There is nothing better than discovering a fine film, without any other influence. (Personally, when I want to really see something I practice media shut out–I refuse to watch too many trailers, viral promos, reviews, etc–I have been known to cover my eyes and ears in the theater during trailers–LALALALA!) That’s me–hope you come by and visit! I will definitely make the rounds and find some of you out there, too.
