When I read the premise, I felt it was a rip on the YouTube series, without giving credit. But I decided to watch it anyway. And, I really enjoyed it. Since its a teen romance type drama, something I haven't watched since my own teens back in the 80s, I watched it without that fore knowledge. The only YA I watch are sci-fi or fantasy based films. So, to watch Every Day and to still have it hold my attention and keep me captivated, without all the flash bang effects of other CGI multi-million $ productions, it did a very good job. Time is precious to me and taking it out to watch a film, I usually wouldn't watch and yet still enjoy as much as I did this one, was well worth it. The portrayals were great and the lead did an awesome job.
If I didn't read the book, my rating might have been higher, but there were lots of scenes from the book that I would have enjoyed in the movie. For instance, most of the book is about Nathan trying to find out who A is. I would have loved to see that, but unfortunately they cut it down to just a few scenes with Nathan. The acting was great and what was presented was good, but if I had to choose between the movie and the book, I'd pick the book. So if you get the chance, read the book. You'll really enjoy it, especially if you enjoyed this movie.
I had pretty low expectations going into this movie, but coming out, I can say it was a good movie. The actors playing A do a good job of convincing you they are all the same person. Rhiannon is a good lead, who has a good subplot involving her dad. The rest of the supporting cast fit their roles well, and never feel as if they take too much time, though some could have been more well fleshed out. My big gripe would have to be the ending. It just felt kind of rushed and incomplete. Other then that, it was a surprisingly enjoyable movie, considering I knew close to nothing about it going into it.
You just have to accept its science-fiction or fantasy central conceit because there's never really an explanation, though nor should there have been, and, while its concept is often explored and does certainly play a large role in the narrative, 'Every Day (2018)' definitely doesn't otherwise occupy those two genres as it's deeply rooted in teen-romance territory - fairly realistic and grounded teen-romance territory, at that. It's obviously enhanced by the premise but not really dictated by it, despite the interesting and looming presence it has. The flick may sound like schlocky, sentimental fare but it is far from the sort and actually navigates it's unique narrative rather deftly, quickly getting you on board with its 'out there' elements and making sure that every incarnation of its body-swapping character feels like a proper continuation of the same person. It's never too predictable or clichéd but does usually play it pretty safe, aside from its satisfyingly ballsy and one-step-ahead-of-the-audience ending. It also doesn't go far enough in certain directions that may be tried-and-tested, but are only so for good reason, to compensate for the fact that it also doesn't quite stretch far into its newer territory to be anything other than surprisingly good for what it is, though. It's much better than I was expecting, but the core concept does feel like it could've been explored further. Perhaps that's something to be saved for another day. 6/10
Minor loop holes don't bother me and I can easily overlook these in order to enjoy an overarching good story. The reason that this story was significantly flawed was because even by its own "rule set" it threw any semblance of coherence and congruent nature out at the end, seemingly for the trifling intent of being different. The fact that "A" had not met anyone in thousands of "lives" that he connected with at a mental, emotional and perhaps spiritual level at such a depth that the willingness to pursue a relationship until meeting Rhiannon speaks volumes. The reflection and decision to pursue a relationship having had so much experience cannot help but have brought a wisdom that was often shown during the film. Yet at the end the challenges spoken of, leading to their breakup, while definitely different and significant if they were to continue their relationship were far from insurmountable. Given the "once in thousands of lifetimes" connection that the film sought to portray between A and Rhiannon, the story broke coherence when the challenge to fight for the relationship through struggle, thick and thin, wasn't even attempted. So we are left with 99% of a story doing its utmost to portray a 'soul mate' connection, then the last 1% showing (in spite of the inevitable challenges) how easily they and especially A, who purportedly knew the rarity of their connection, threw it all away (before even reaching and experiencing those challenges which at that point existed only in A's imagination). That last 1% destroyed all belief in any of the meaning that supposedly connected A and Rhiannon during the first 99%. Now if they were to show the strength of their connection through both of them battling through any challenges that came their way, that would keep the coherency and genuinely show how "once in a thousand lifetimes" their connection was. By ending it the way it did it just showed how weak, insignificant and illusionary the connection that the first 99% of the film tried its best to portray.
