Curious premise, pointless story

I was eager to buy into the exciting premise that Henry (Eric Bana) is spontaneously traveling to random points in time as I was relishing the boundless possibilities of how time lines can be affected and anticipation of an intricate plot. However, the movie disappointingly left this plot driving potential unrealized largely due to the utterly fatalistic philosophical stance of the author. The potential was boringly killed at the outset when Henry stated that he tried to put his time travel to use but could not alter the events. This relegated him for the rest of the movie to the role of a helpless toy in the hands of these nuisance time leaps. The character without any goal or purpose was hard to relate to or feel for. We saw a series of peculiar oddities (vanishing in thin air) and awkward situations (nude guy trying to find clothes), but we did not witness any real struggle or purpose-driven actions, no effort of the time traveler to use his gift to make a difference. For the lack of the driver, the rest of the plot amounted to a unconvincing retelling of a soap-opera-worthy romantic story. It would have been far more interesting to see Henry try to at least save his mother, rather than boringly stating that he couldn't. He could at least try to tell Clare (Rachel McAdams) while she was a girl and his mom was still alive to call his mom and warn her about the storm and tell her not to drive on that fateful evening. He could have called his mom while in the past. He could have actually told it to her face when he met her on the train three years before the accident. Would she have believed him? Would she have still died despite the prior knowledge – that could have been a thrilling possibility! The movie left me with a sense of unfulfilled promise, wasted potential and disappointment with the passive, fatalistic outlook that this movie projects.

every feminist's wet-dream

is this movie about a time traveler? nooooo, it's about some obnoxious chick and her unreasonable demands: "The Time Traveler's WIFE".

one notable instance is the time he is gone an unusually long 2 weeks - which seems to be an analogy of men being away from their family while working... during this time when he is time traveling, he faces great danger and hardship. but is the wife happy to see him when he gets home? nope: she's mad at him, and blames him for something he has no control over.

aaaaaand then he's shot and killed. a fairy tale ending for any misandrist.

I could go on about the many such instances of blatant sexism against men, and hatred against this poor guy, but you get the drift. it doesn't matter anyway, it's not about him, it's about his wife.

final rating: wish I could un-see

Instantly goes to my top 10

Those who didn't like The Curious Case of Benjamin Button better skip it. For the rest of you warm recommendation. This time I won't write review and I won't even try to be objective. I fell in love with this movie and it instantly became one of my favorite love stories. Huge ten, really huge.
