The Lake House


First and foremost let me put in record that I am a Fan of Action, Suspense, Adventure and Sci Fi movies.....but ocassionally a romantic flick will catch my attention....and breath...and...

Caught the show titled "The Lake House" with Keanu Reeves ( Wifey is gaga over this guy, I dunno why ) and Sandra Bullock ( my all time "favouritest" actress..aaarrrgg!! ) some time back. It caught my attention then and it got my attention yesterday when I watched it on HBO ( or StarWorld )....

The reunion of Keanu and Sandra from their Speed days is a freaking gem...they have the chemistry to make the flick click, totally click dude!!!...more so than "Sleepless In Seattle" starring Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan.

TNS...the storyline was superb...superb I tell you..I will try to just give the gist without spoiling the fun for those who are planning to catch the movie..

Its all about..u guessed it...."LOVE"


Alex ( played by Keanu ) is in the year 2004 and Catie/Kate ( played by Sandra ) resides in the year 2006....and a female dog named "Jack" ( keep your eyes and ears open whenever this dog appears in the movie. There you have it, its about a two year apart love affair....makes sense to you? Btw, did any of you notice the movie poster shows a B&W Keanu with Sandra? Can it be an interpretation of a love affair that might involve the "Flux Capacitor" from "Back to the Future" saga...food for thought huh?

I cannot say more or it WILL ruin the fun of watching or believing in miracles....

I must however say again that the freaking storyline is blardie superb!!!!!!

I rate this as my all time favourite and watchable Romantic flick...and by doing that I must admit that at heart, I am a Romantic freak **sob sob**

2 every1 his/her OWN........................

I am a big fan of BOTH OF THEM and SPEED!!! I was at my regular DVD seller, saw this and didn't buy it because I thot...aiya, I don't want to spoil my image of their chemistry together by watching a sob-sob story lor. Admit it, that's what the poster look like, right?

OK, now that you say it's good....I WILL GO GET IT!! And it spoils my image of Keanu (ssswwooooonnnn!!!) and Bullock (respect, respect), I fry your balls with sesame seed and eat it!!

Jamie said...

i'm not sure you guys know it or not, it's actually a remake of a korean film called Il-mare, starring Jeung Ji-hyun as the girl who is in "My sassy girl" a few years back. That was the best korean film i rate so far. Il-mare is ok lar for me...btw, the storyline i suppose is 100% mirror image lor, something like The Departed and Infernal affairs.
