One of my Favorite-est Movies
I love the movie Timeline. It's based on the book by Michael Crichton. Paul Walker, Frances O'Connor, and Gerard Butler star.
If you haven't read the book or seen the movie, Timeline is about a group of archaeologists and medieval experts who uncover some clues that suggest that Walker's father has traveled through time. They hunt down the dig's money backers and through their technology, time travel back to France in 1357. They only have a limited amount of time to get back to the present and the French warriors at war with the invading British makes locating Walker's father no easy task as their body count rises.
With time travel set in the Middle Ages, romance, action and adventure, this movie is one that I can watch over and over again. Just ask hubby, he can tell you how many times we've seen it as well as how many times I've suggested it and we (namely he) picked something else. Sure it's not the most accurate, but it's still a fun movie to watch. And it's one of the few book-based movies in which I actually like the movie better than the book.
Have you seen or read Timeline? What did you think of it? Have you ever liked a movie better than its book?
