I first read about the meme through Dell on Movies, and I've been meaning to join it for quite some time! It's hosted by Wandering through the Shelves, another blog that I'm recently frequenting. Each week there's a theme, where you get to pick three movies surrounding said theme. For this week, it's about time travel. The first movie I initially thought of was Back to the Future (it seems like the predominant choice when it comes to time travel movies), so I decided not to use it for my list. Below are three of my picks for this week's theme!
I initially dismissed About Time as something akin to The Time Traveler's Wife, but it's not the same - this was way better than that. The time travel rule here is quite simple: you can only travel to moments that you have lived through before. While we get to watch Tim's adventures with his new found skill, we also get to live through his life, his relationships, and the importance of valuing our time with them.
The third installation of the MIB series deals with changing the the past, when Boris the Animal travels back in time and kills Agent K, rendering his freedom in the future. When Agent J realizes the change, he goes back in time in order to stop Boris from killing Agent K, an adventure that ensues the revival of the franchise.
I remember enjoying Source Code when I first watched it, but it had unanswered questions - at least for me. Colter Stevens wakes up in the body of a victim of a train crash, and stays for eight minutes (until the train crashes), and he regenerates back to the body of the victim through the program called Source Code. The movie was really great, and it was entertaining, though it did leave me with a couple of questions.
