All the romantic myths about soulmates

Hi - This is an enjoyable movie, but it does have all the romantic myths about true love and soulmates which are firstly not true and kind of cheezy. It is sweet though, just wish the relationship was more real - the love at first sight thing just doesn't work that well in this movie. I just think that Colin Farrell is really hot, so I don't mind watching him for 2 hours. If I didn't like him so much, the movie would be harder to watch. I do like the white flying horse and the whole good verses evil, demon thing is just so overdone. This movie is just one long cliche with nothing original. But, it is still worth watching and is romantic, even if relationships truly don't go like that.

While the acting was wonderful and the scenery sublime, I thought the story line was disjointed and hard to follow. In the end, it left me rather flat and I'm a huge fan of many of the actors in this film. In particular, I'm a huge Will Smith fan but I thought he was poorly cast in this movie. It was almost comical the way they "revealed" him for the first time.

Winter's Tale is a must see, for it brings to life, the whole meaning of Destiny, in real life situations. The meaning of Faith, and longing for eternal blessings in life, will keep your faith up in the drama of life issues. Human Instincts/Behaviors will play out in the drama of living your life in the best way possible day by day. Having Faith, Blessings and Love and the internal struggles of life will surely make you cry in parts of this movie. Time hopping in this movie, makes it even better, to see life in the past and in the future. The enchanting beautiful white horse, and the snow/ice covered lake with enchanting Colonial style building in the Colonial period as seen best in New York area, is so ever beautiful. The struggles of people coming into Ellis Island, in New York in the later part of 1800's allows how Family Units can be splintered as Physicians check out people for Consumption ( Tuberculosis), with people having to make split second decisions of who will stay in USA.

I took my fiance and realize the movie was probably more for her but we both kind of walked out shrugging our shoulders. Definitely would recommend waiting for it to hit video/netflix - no rush to sit through this one.

Winter's Tale Disappoints

The beautiful parts of this movie were terribly overshadowed by the ridiculous. And what did the pronunciation of 'Claret' and 'filet' have to do with anything? Left the show with an unsettling dissonant feeling - my teenaged daughter left mad that it was 'such a stupid movie'. Were disappointed we wasted our evening and dollars on this one.
