Movie Review – 10 Years


18 January 2013, Singapore – A lot of things can change in ten years. People change; kids mature and become adults, get jobs and have families. And when you meet up again after ten years, it could be a bit awkward. You know them but at the same time, you don’t.

That’s a bit how 10 Years the film feels.

The film follows a group of friends on the night of their tenth year class reunion. Who got famous? Who got fat? Which former sports star is now a hen-pecked husband?

Starring an ensemble cast including People Magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive Channing Tatum (pant-pant-pant) and his real life wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum (boo!), Justin Long, Chris Pratt, and Rosario Dawson; the film feels really truthful, like everyone is really just playing themselves – looking longingly back at their childhood through a haze of 90’s music and hormones.

If you are in your late twenties or older, you can probably relate best. But if you’re younger, you could still fall for the romance of the nostalgia that you don’t yet know.


Spoiler alert:

My favorite part of the movie is the song Never Had.

Reeves (played by hot Latino actor Oscar Isaac) is a chart-topping musician who’s claim to fame is a song he wrote a about his high school crush. Doesn’t everybody at some point in life wish that someone would write a song about him or her?

Unless of course you used to live with Gotye.
