In Time: Expert Movie Review by Jan

Some of the cast:
Justin Timberlake as Will Salas
Amanda Seyfried as Sylvia Weis
Cillian Murphy as Raymond Leon
Shyloh Oostwald as Maya

Summary: In a nutshell, this movie is set in the future when you only have 25 years to live. Including one year after that(?). Everything that you need to live requires time from your life. If you have a job, you can earn time back. It's currency, think money. Like, the government will kill you if you go broke. You can also take out loans for time from the "Time Bank." Justin's character often talks about living from day to day with his time. Sound familiar? Paycheck to paycheck.

Guess who the evil people are? Come on its easy...
The Satanic Upper Class, who have centuries of time on their hands! Bah Bah Bah!

The most evil of the aforementioned yuppies is Philippe Weiz, of Weiz Time Bank (of course), played by Vincent Kartheiser.

I LOVED this man in Mad Men! His aura of smugness is beyond his time. LOOK AT THAT FACE!

"You can't make time by giving away time."

And oh how he reminds me of my favorite cartoon/television star, Eric Cartman.

Do you see the resemblance?

So, this movie obviously is about how shitty our economy is. I just don't know why they felt they needed a stupid plot about "time." It's not a secret that the economy sucks! There will be no criticism on that point.

I cannot finish this review without stating the obvious. Justin Timberlake, has proven to be a talented actor in three genres: Chick Flicks, Comedies, and Action ... which we all know have a low standard for greatness. He might not be hugely talented, but he at least puts Katherine Heigl to shame. Katherine, who talks shit about the only movie she was remotely interesting in ("Knocked Up").

Katherine Heigl wearing a dress that obviously does not fit her, and looking like a f@cking idiot.

FINAL VERDICT: This movie is stupid as shit. However, if you are forced to see a movie this month, I suggest you choose "In Time" over the other horrible movies that are playing ("Three Musketeers," don't get me started. I did not think it was possible that Orlando Bloom could be so unattractive). If you are not forced to attend the theater, I suggest you download this movie illegally, watch it, then delete it from your hard drive so as it does not take up space.

One more for the road..

Vincent looking smugger then hell!

The movie might be stupid as shit, but that poster is downright sexy. And yes, I'm proud of myself for not making a "Sexy Back" reference. :)
