Movie summary: "In Time"  
-I had suspicions from just seeing the trailer that this movie owed its existence to MILF jokes, and set out to find a way to make Olivia Wilde be the recipient of one without being too inconceivable.

- There is a lot of manpretty in this. I'm serious, I don't even see movies with that at the forefront in my mind, but hoo boy. Very noticeable (Cillian Murphy, Justin Timberlake, Matt Bomer, every male extra, this dude. Vincent Kartheiser plays a 110-year-old-man-in-a-25-year-old-body too well for me to aesthetically evaluate him. Feels like nursing home and cradle-robbing at the exact same time. Poor Leonard from The Big Bang Theory is the only dude I can think of in it that isn't...well. I don't think he was intended to be perceived of as attractive, let's put it that way.

-Anvil-dropping parallels to the Statesian economic situation, but it doesn't do too badly, to be completely honest. The "time is money" gimmick ran a bit thin even at the beginning, but its story managed to carry a 105-minute movie well enough.

-Justin Timberlake crying over Olivia Wilde's corpse made the entire theatre guffaw. I really hope he doesn't actually cry like that in real life.

*giggles* Y'know, that was probably the case.

I still want to see it though, in all its overacted glory. The trailer reminded me of Logan's Run, but in a good way, so I'll probably go if I can find someone to go and laugh at certain parts with me.

I can't decide if I'm perceptive or the exact people they were thinking of. Probably a little bit of both.

*hasneverseenlogan'srun* Ahem. Yes, find a person to laugh at the Narmy parts with you. There are quite a few.

IN YOUR DEFENSE HE DOESN'T HAVE HIS HAIR IN HIS FACE AND HE IS DISTINCTLY CLEAN OF GRIME. WHICH TO ME WERE REALLY HIS DEFINING FACTORS ON ANGEL.
