The Age of Adaline Movie Review


 "A young woman, born at the turn of the 20th century, is rendered ageless after an accident.  After many solitary years, she meets a man who complicates the eternal life she has settled into."-IMDB


     Adaline Bowman, our leading lady played by Blake Lively gets into an accident and dies.  However, as a comet is passing by lightening strikes her car and it resuscitates her, causing her to never age since that moment.  Always on the run she never gets to settle down due to people acknowledging the fact that she never ages.  Thus she is never able to fall in love completely because she ends up having to leave or move away.  Now Adaline has met a man called Ellis Jones whom she's completely fallen for.  She tries to push him away but he has fallen in love with her also.  Adaline goes with Ellis to meet his family for the weekend when she is reunited with his father; whom she was in love with in her past.  When she runs off she gets in a car accident and dies again; only to be yet again resuscitated as the comet is passing by 50 years later and she comes back to life only to realize that she is now able to age.  She can now grow old with Ellis.  

     The characters in this movie had decent chemistry, although I never felt completely pulled in to their love story.  Although I enjoyed the characters I felt as if Ellis and Adaline had some what of an insta-love story or at least for Ellis that is. Adaline (Blake Lively) and William Jones (Harrison Ford) had the best chemistry.  One felt drawn into whatever conversations they were having.  The feeling of the long lost unrequited love was also there which could be deeply felt on William's end.  You could feel the loss in his tone of voice.  It slows down and becomes a bit deeper.  The history that they had together could be felt even though they hadn't seen each other in decades.    

       The movie starts off a bit slow.  It doesn't really begin to pick up until Adaline visits and William recognizes her.  From then on out the movie is great.  Filled with emotion and great scenes it does not disappoint.  However, until you get to that point, it seems slightly dull and slow.  If the scenes between Ellis and Adaline were more raw and intense the first half would have been much more enjoyable.  

     I would recommend this movie to those who like romance movies, such as Hallmark and so on; it is a cute watch but it isn't anything special.

Saturday Morning Cartoons for June 26: Rainbow Connection Edition

I've always found it curious that the USA, and Western Culture as a whole, was always so proud of and quick to trumpet its Greco-Roman origins yet made such tremendous efforts to studiously avoid one of the standards, if not pillars, of those aesthetics: homosexuality and how many of the great thinkers and shapers of their philosophy and way of life were openly gay. Slavery, too; they just didn't have too many problems with that part. But I digress. As I told a gay co-worker just the other night when we were discussing gay marriage, social progress and change are always inevitable. The only question is will they occur in our lifetimes.


Supreme Court Rules Same-Sex Marriage Legal in United States. Judgments like this, so historic yet fundamental, can always be summed up in the simplest of terms: respect, dignity and honor. And the SCOTUS wrapped this one up a rainbow colored ribbon with one paragraph.


In related news, this little gem almost goes unnoticed: Defense of Marriage Act rule Unconstitutional.


This Texas preacher's reaction comes as no great suprise, or loss, if he actually follows through with it.


As this post from Vox reminds us, gays and lesbians have always been here, pledging their love to their partners. And they always will be. Deal with it.

Harrison Ford : ein Biographie
Harrison Ford : ein Biographie - Robert ... Harrison Ford : ein Biographie - Robert Sellers I enjoyed all the info this biography gave me, especially additional stuff relating to the Star Wars saga, of which I am a fan. I also felt it was a well balanced biography. It didn't waffle on about things, but kept to the point and kept moving. I recommend it to anyone trying to find out more about Harrison Ford.
