Film Review: Somewhere in Time

The movie Somewhere in Time is one of those classic films that I’ve loved since I was a child. The episode of Jane the Virgin which had Jane Seymour as a guest sparked an urge to write a post about my love for this movie. When I saw her on my TV screen, I had a flashback of the first time I saw the movie that I think made me become such a hopeless romantic.

I haven’t seen the movie in such a long time but I can still remember the scenes that I loved from the movie. That part where the old Elise asks Richard to come back to her is one of them.  I thought that it was sad but I found the scene where Richard realizes that he has a modern coin while he was in the past and goes back to his time to be the most heartbreaking. Even as a child, I understood how Richard could be so devastated by going back to his time because he was so happy in the past with Elise.

This is the movie that made me fall in love with Christopher Reeve. I knew him as Richard first before he became Clark Kent. To this day, he is my Superman standard. Henry Cavill may be hot and all, but he is no Chris Reeve. Brandon Routh came closer to the Chris Reeve mold so I like him better.

To this day I am fascinated by this film and can never resist watching Jane Seymour in her other projects because of how much I loved her in this movie. I remember grieving when Chris Reeve passed away not just because he was Superman, but because of this film. I was so young when I first saw this. I would love to be able to see it again. It's such a classic movie that I'd love to share with my nephews and niece when they grow up.

I digress, so let’s move on. The theme song from the movie was the first non-lesson piece I tried to learn on the piano. I didn’t get far with it except for the first part but I remember just being taken back to my favorite parts of the film just from hearing the music.

Has this movie been digitally restored? I'd love to see it if there is one. It would be such a special thing to watch again.

Does anyone else out there like the movie too? I'd love to hear what you think of it!

This is an old entry from my old blog, edited/updated for this one. Hope you liked it!
