The Lake House Reviews
It's essentially a movie about a magic mail box where two people write letters back and forth from the past etc.
Spoiler alert: one of them dies...and then doesn't die...because of the mailbox. I stopped traveling internationally because of this movie.
When we don't see that making our mind and not letting people see on their own, we change the course of future. When we wish to see others we had a profound connection with, those that can see us for whom we are, those that can see we put our work ahead of everything to keep continuing seeing what we are seeing to move forward and surround ourselves with everything we wish to see, but we only see what is in front of us not what is behind us to know we will not see each other again. When we see what brought us together, when we were meant to cross paths and see to it that we deliver a message to prevent a past mistake that go back to where it all started before we are too late. When we see we were meant to be together, that destiny wanted us to have a chance at how unpredictable life's outcomes could drift us apart that we take separate path. When we see that we always continue to fight our way to paths we can't see, when life's cruel jokes blind us, that we wait till we build ourselves strong enough to weather any severe conditions that might hit us.
2015-07-26// The last time I watched this was in the theatre. Watching it again, the pace of this movie is really really slow. The film asks you to overlook the logical flaws and just accept the romance that's leading this movie.
The movie is quite flat and the plot is quite nonsensical. Of course, in a movie with time traveling you cannot think much about that part of the story or will fall apart. Not specifically, the fault of this one. But the behavior of the characters is really, really pointless in some parts.
Also, the parallel family struggles of both characters are quite pointless and irrelevant for the main story.
The main mistake, however, is the lack of spark that Bullock and Reeves did have in Speed. They are just numb.
The best part, the beautiful setting of the Lake House.
Minus the the mysterious mailbox in the Lake House, this goes to show that whatever you do in the past will reflect on your present which made the movie a little believable.
