This Week: The Age of Adaline
This is a decent movie just as long as you don’t look too closely at it and just enjoy it for what it is. The “lightning grants super powers through science” explanation it gives is fairly silly, but unlike Lucy, it is not harped on the entire movie, it’s just “she is eternally unaging” and leaves it at that.
When she tells people about her “gift” they just kind of accept it and not go into sort of the widespread implications involved. Especially when it comes to have had a sexual relationship with a father and son 40 years apart.
Next Week: Avengers: Age of Ultron or Far From The Madding Crowd. GEE! I WONDER WHICH ONE I’M GONNA SEE? The one where a woman chooses between three guys while fighting an army of robots or the one where a woman chooses between three guys while fighting social norms of the time?
