This movie also opens on August 14, 2009. Interesting that Eric Bana is in this movie, dealing with time travel, his 2nd one this year.

Albert and I saw this movie this morning at the Ward Theater. This movie is more of a romance kind of movie rather than sci-fi kind of movie, in fact the time traveling is not done with the aid of machines.

Yeah, so was the book. I also found the time travel mechanism (or lack thereof) to be highly implausible. What can I say, time travel is actually one of those sci-fi things that actually is plausible in a geeky, doesn't violate the laws of physics kind of way. Anyway, I'll probably wait until it comes on TV to see it.

I heard the book was good and the movie did not live up to it. I have the book in my stash, but haven't read it yet.
