I expected to be terribly bored by this film. However, it was lovely and charming and interesting. Paris is captured elegantly, and when Wilson's character slips into the past I felt like I was right there with him. I think this film was well executed, and I suppose there is a nice lesson to be learned at the end of it.

A wholly original film from Woody Allen. But, as much as I love Woody, how many more times can (after 40 years) go back to the "hey, I'm a lonely neurotic guy who's just trying to find my way in life story." As far as the story goes, it was original. This could be considered his sci-fi film with the time-travel and all. I think Woody found the perfect guy to basically play him (Woody) on film, in Owen Wilson. It's good, but not great.

I didn't know what to expect going into this movie. I was mainly watching it because it has several Oscar nominations. It isn't a normal comedy you'd expect Owen Wilson to be in, and I was hesitant on how well he would fit. He remarkably does a great job and fits quite well with the what to movie is. It has the right amount of comedy, and brings to the table a much more in depth plot than I thought it would be. People who don't know their history very well may not understand or enjoy this movie as much. It definitely has originality, and it worth seeing out of the movies nominated for best picture.

I'm going to start off simple this time:
This is Woody Allen's best film to date.

It looks and sounds incredible. I can't use the word 'beautiful' enough to describe the way this film looks, sounds and feels at its core aesthetically.
It looks like something straight out of Allen's mind. Pulled out of a random day-dream and worked on to develop into a screenplay. The writing is superb, especially the dialogue and way of line delivery. It's a bit of a throwback to Annie Hall, but it's done much smoother and not with such forced intimacy as seen in Annie Hall.

Owen Wilson and Rachel McAdams are perfectly cast. Wilson even looks a bit like a young Woody Allen if you look at him from far away. Either way, he played the part convincingly. The look on his face when he realized he went b...

Classic Woody on Romanticism & Relationships -

If this movie doesn't make you want to up sticks and move to Paris instantly, you must be as dead as a cold dead fish that's been dead for a really, really long time. The beautiful imagery of the Parisian streets, lights, bridges, markets, monuments, cafes, bars and even the muddy Seine itself seem to explode with vibrancy and colour (especially in the rain). Owen Wilson plays Gil, a troubled and insecure writer trying to escape from the grind of rolling out formulaic Hollywood scripts so that he can use his writing talents in a more edifying way. His fiancée, Inez (played by Rachel McAdams), is not particularly supportive of his desired career change (nor of him in general it seems) and her 'one-dimensional' parents are openly dismissive of Gil and are generally the kind of people tha...

The grass is always greener..

For me this movie sort of just.. was. It's a romantic comedy that isn't really comedic or romantic. It's just a story. It has a moral, so I'll call it a fable.
The concept is interesting and my favorite parts were definitely the scenes with all the famous people from the 1920's. The actual plot was stale, in my opinion. How many times can the whole "the grass is greener, or is it?" theme be done? This movie takes said stale plot, adds some beautiful imagery and more mainstream actors than you can imagine (maybe that's what took away from the movie; every 2 minutes I was going "oh, look!" i.e., "oh, look, Loki!" or "oh, look the Pianist!"). And while I was thrilled to see these people and they gave great, although brief, performances, the shiny things didn't distract me from use-by date.
