I am so in love with Rachel McAdams after seeing her performance in About Time. Who could not enjoy a romantic comedy with time travel? Domhnall Gleeson (whose most famous role is Bill Weasley in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1 and Part 2) plays Tim, an average barrister in London. But Tim finds out from his father, played by Bill Nighy, that males in their family have a peculiar power: they can travel through time. Director and writer Richard Curtis uses this time travel skill to generate plenty of humor. Tim decides to use his time travel power in the pursuit of Love. And he falls in love with Rachel McAdams (brilliant choice!). Whenever things get shaky, Tim travels back in time to fix things. But he soon learns the limits to time travel and the story takes a bittersweet turn. I really enjoyed this movie and you will too! GRADE: B+

    I was very impressed with her performance in THE LUCKY ONES with Tim Robbins & Michael Pena, about three soldiers bonding on a cross-country road trip. Too many of her movies, however, have not been worthy of her talent.

    You know, I was thinking we need a Saturday college football post here like the Sunday pro football one you do.

    After losing to Stanford last week (curses!) Oregon is winning against Utah (the only team to beat Stanford this year). Go Ducks! How’s YOUR favorite college football team doing today?

    George, you don’t like Syracuse? Boston College? No one in the NE? You need to find the sure winner down south? I always root for Arizona, where I went, though they are struggling this year.
