The Adjustment Bureau

Great movie! The Adjustment Bureau with Matt Damon and Emily Blunt was a delight on all the genre levels listed in the blurb for this movie.

Genres: Romance, Science Fiction/Fantasy, Thriller, Adaptation and Politics/Religion

The premise comes from a 57-year old short story by Philip K. Dick that appeared in Orbit Science Fiction.

I knew there was a reason I have a stack of old sci-fi magazines…

James Berardinelli of ReelViews is concerned all the trailers will misdirect the potential audience into thinking it is more of a science fiction thriller than a romance.  However, this is not a “chick flick” so it is a great date movie. We both liked it.

Here’s some quotes from his review:

Nevertheless, although the final act may not be as intellectually fulfilling as what precedes it, it is emotionally satisfying. Viewers may come to the movie because of its sci-fi premise, but most will stay because of the love story.

The story toys with the concepts of free will and predestination – an argument that has befuddled religious scholars through the ages – but the filmmakers are believers in true love and, as a testimony to that philosophy, this movie needs no adjustment.

Yep, romances do all that and have a happily ever after at the end.  🙂
