"The Jacket" part 2

"The Jacket" is a bad fantasy time travel movie with lots and lots of "Wait....Whut?" moments that were annoying. Apparently, the time-travel mechanism here is a cocktail of mind-altering drugs, being locked up in a straitjacket and slid into a morgue drawer for hours at a time. I found it hilarious that the lead character was led to ask "What's the date" after finding, oh, about 2 clues that he's time traveled. "Mighty quick on the uptake", I thought.


Tonight's Ace of Cakes: Ummm....Duff is on the roof of the bakery letting off fireworks that are highly illegal in the People's Republic of Maryland. Surprised they didn't get closed.

I think this is one of those context issues, perhaps. I loved the Jacket but I watched it in theaters when it came out. There wasn't a "duh" moment at the time. It didn't "fool" me or anything, but I was surprised a few times which is a pretty high threshold for me (as you know).

Over 4 years later, many of the plot elements that were different and the camera work etc. is now conventional. Just like if you watched Momento for the the first time today, it wouldn't be that impressive.
