Dr. Kate Forster has finally found romance. Trouble is, it's a long-distance relationship. She's in downtown Chicago. He's in a remote lakeside suburb. And there's more: She's in 2006. He's in 2004. Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock team up for the first time since Speed for this heart-lifting story of a love that transcends time. It begins when Kate moves out of her visually stunning lake house and leaves a note for the next tenant, architect Alex Wyler. They begin a correspondence and soon come to realize they are meant for each other...and that, somehow, they live two years apart. Can they ever meet? What would happen if they tried? Magical and emotionally rich, The Lake House is a love story for 2004, for 2006, for all times.
The ending was...well, before I pieced together events/hints given in the beginning of the movie, made me hold my breath for the inevitable meeting between Kate and Alex in current time/year; unfortunately it was Alex's brother Henry (Ebon Moss-Bachrach) who welcomed and entertained Kate and her boyfriend, Morgan (Dylan Walsh). It was also in this scene that Kate found out from Henry where Alex was, which propelled her to go straight back to the lake house and resume their correspondece in the hopes of salvaging what was left of their once wonderful relationship.
Anyway, for those of you who are in the 'know' about this situation, what do you think?
IMO, I think both the Donald and the Rosie (yeah, gotta brand her with something) are idiots. They're a couple of kids roughing it up in the schoolyard or something. I don't support the Donald's decision because that's just a messed-up thing to do -- especially in the BEAUTY PAGEANT WORLD!!!
I mean, wasn't a former Miss Universe de-crowned or something because she gained weight? Or was it because it turns out she was a mother? Can't remember the nasty details right now about what exactly happened there, but didn't Vanessa Williams (the singer and that nasty boss on Ugly Betty) got the boot too when it was published that she posed nude for some magazine prior to her being crowned Miss America? If stories of such 'beauty queens' getting de-crowned because of the aforementioned offenses, I think whatever this current Miss America chick did was way worse than posing nude or gaining weight OR becoming a single mother!!!!
Jeezums! The Donald really screwed up BIG TIME by being way too effing lenient to this damn effing controversial Miss America winner! I think the chick's probably screwing him on the side hence why he was lenient with her 'antics'. But that's just IMO.
Overall I say these two morons better put a sock in their cakeholes and just get on with their life. Rosie O'Donnell became an annoyance since she quit her talk show. Heck, I couldn't even stand her at all when she was still on that talk show of hers, but she did bring in a few good guests (and her obsession with Tom Cruise always promised a visit from the man himself!).
OK, I just wanna let this annoyance of mine out of my system because...jeezums! They're both how old? Pushing sixty or seventy for The Donald and pushing fifty for The Rosie?
What kinda changes, you ask?
Oh, nothing drastic, rest assured. I just decided that since I like to rant and complain and disect each and every show, series, movies and...heck, sometimes music videos of certain popular performers of today, I might as well make this my page for ranting about everything Hollywood. -LoL- What do you think?
Oh, I already have my first rant of the year. I'm just itching to get it out and...well, it's not really that big of a deal, but it just annoys me coz you can't seem to read or watch anything on TV that doesn't talk about it -- and you'll soon find out what I'm blabbering about shortly.
So, happy new year to you all and may this year bring us more...juicy topics to talk about! -LoL-
I am not really a sci-fi fanatic, but I tend to enjoy watching movies/shows/series/minis about the paranormal or supernatural just as long as they were done in good taste and the gore justifies the plot of the story -- not because a lot of people these days are sadistic pricks who loves to see peoples' heads get chopped off or whatnot.
When I saw a preview for this 3-part mini series while watching one of the evening shows with my mom some time last week, I was intrigued by it. And my mother, knowing my taste so darn well, knew I'd be interested in it and voiced it out. I didn't pay much heed to it since I usually miss out watching these so-called 'interesting' shows that irked my fancy.
Simple. I see a preview for it days in advance, store it at the back of my head, then LIFE happens and I forget about it. -LoL- You'd think I'd sit down and write it in my agenda book or something, right?
I ain't really much of a TV-watcher these days. I have a set day or days when I am going to glue myself in front of the television, and that's only when my fave shows (the ones I watch every week almost religiously) is/are on. Other than that, I'd be lucky to turn on my TV to watch something other than one of my numerous DVD movies! -LoL-
So anyway, back to the movie (which was awesome, by the way), I was sitting watching Stargate SG-1 over at the Space Channel (it was Monday night and I was bored; I dunno why I was even watching TV that night). I was browsing for what other shows are there to watch when I found out tha The Lost Room will follow the show I was watching. Well, ain't I lucky, eh? I almost forgot about it until I saw it on my screen.
Anyway, so yeah, I waited until 7:00 pm when it finally came on. Usually movies that irked my interest in previews tends to not have a very good follow-through when I start watching it (I base my interest in it on whether I'll get hooked on it during its first 5 minutes or not), but this show...well, let's just say that I was hooked on it and I wanted to find out exactly what the heck was going on. Mind you I had to switch channels back and forth 'coz something else that caught my interest was showing in another channel (gawd, don't you just hate different networks showing all these good shows at the same time?!), but overall I ended up sticking to watching this show and was thankful when the continuation (each episode was 2 hours long) will be shown the following evening as opposed to most 2 or 3-part series that gets shown once a week.
I was confused about the Legion and the Order. I wasn't sure whether the Legion were the good guys or the bad guys and same goes with the Order. I was thrown into the confusion and experiencing the feelings Joe Miller (Peter Krause) was feeling by taking a leap of faith, so to speak, and trusting or not trusting this character or that.
By the end of the first episode I was unsure if one of the good guys, the homicide doctor helping Joe and his partner on the case, was good or bad. But it was soon resolved in the second episode. Also, the question about whether the Legion or the Order should be trusted or not was answered in the second episode. There was a twist in the third episode; something so predictable and yet I chose not to believe it until that scene appeared and the dialogues were spoken.
I will not divulge any more of this story's plot. It was a good show. Very well done. And I noticed that it was directed by TWO directors (the third episode was handled by a different director). Nevertheless it all stayed within context. The ending left me wondering; there were some loopholes left unchecked and I wonder...will there be a sequel to this? Will Joe be one of the Objects now?
If this goes on sale I'll buy it! -LoL-
