My reaction
Synopsis: the love-life of a man unstuck in time
How I saw it: on video, a couple weeks ago
Concept: Good.
Story: Terrible. There are so many great things they could have done with this movie. But nothing happens. Just, “Derp, she’s pretty, whoop I’m disappearing again.”
Characters: Bad.
Dialog: Terrible.
Pacing: Indifferent.
Cinematography: Indifferent.
Special effects/design: Bad. Why use expensive aging makeup when you can just give the actors new haircuts, right?
Acting: Indifferent. To be fair, there’s nothing they could have done to be good in these roles.
Music: Bad.
Subjective Rating: 2/10 (Terrible). Horrible waste of time.
Objective Rating: 1.2/4 (Bad).
