Time travel is one of the most loved genres in the sci-fi because you can operate with the movie in a lot of possible ways.
No! I’ll not go to speak about Back to the future because I cannot say more that everyone in the last decades did. Don’t misunderstand, I think that this is one of the most beautiful movies never made and is not possible to attribute any defect (even all the paradoxes I guess are made only for getting easy to write a plot) and if we want just to speak about the only think that nobody understood in the movie is about two people that meet a dude in their past and then they have a child similar to him and they don’t remember??? WTF!
By the way there is a branch of this that is even better for the screen players that is the time loop and there is a massive quantity of operas involved in this, No I’ll not speak about looper or Frequency cause this movies are so well known that will be useless and you know that I like to let people to discover unknown operas.
So let’s start…
Yeolhansi 11 am [Korean movie]:
Director: K. Hyeon-Seok
A group of scientists discover the time travel and for test the machine they send a dude few hours in the future. When him arrive there is the hell around. A massive tragedy is happened in this hours. He came back in the past and the whole group will try to figured out what happen letting the time running.
Of course, as any magnificent opera with a good ideas could miss an american awful copy? Not! Because in Netflix you can find the movie “Paradox”.
Predestination [By the R. Heinlein story: …All you zombies…]:
Director: Brothers Spierig
A whole lifetime is a massive loop for a person who don’t have ancestor nor descendant.
Everything about his life is only about him and his time police career.
This plot, more than everyone else introduce the concept of inevitability because the main character of the movie is the snake that eats his own tale forever and ever… The Ouroboros.
«Understand you are more than an Agent. You’re a gift given to the world through a predestination Paradox. You’re the only one free from history, ancestry.»
«And what happens when that day comes, when I have no knowledge of my future?
Well, then, like everyone else you’re just going to have to take it one day at a time.»
Director: T. Scott
Action movie with Denzel Washington where our hero try to find a terrorist through a machine which can see into the past… Literally.
When he discover that HE CAN SAVE HER will start the main part of the movie when he will try to…
Being a time travel story we can see the concept of: «What if I already done?».
Well! If you like the crime fiction this is a beautifull movie…
Director: S. Carruth
Year: Primer is non leass than a wannabe documentary about two guys who discover the time travel and make a lot of experiments about moving days in past and future… A mess if you don’t pay lot of attention like I did!!!
Edge of tomorrow:
Director: D. Liman
Tom Cruise get the power of restart the day every time he dead and he must to fight against an alien invasion helped by the blonde —soldieress— and the classic group of nonsense people who generally save the world dying and dying and dying again.
Now I’d like to speak about a short story that I read few days ago.
The author is a blogger Antony Vicino and the story is Extant and essentially he see the time travel as a normal human capacity but nothing is easy in the nature so will be love and death and tachyon overdose and… Well read that I cannot spoil a whole short story.
I liked cause in his structure it remembered a 2006 anime called: The girl who leapt through time when even here the time travel was a body facility and even here, like in the Vicino story there was a limitation about the use of that.
I think that in the Extant universe could be have place even the most famouse Nippo time travel Hiro Nakamura from heroes because, as in the story, for time travel he BLINK and… for sake… He does it beautifully.
I spoke in a previous post about Hiro… If you are interested about him go to look in all my posts that I’m poor and I need traffic on the blog… Naaa I’m joking here is the post.
Only a think I must to say to Antony… Antony, The cover. When I saw the cover I supposed was something like the end of the world… Something like this
But you are the writer and the story is so good so we can pass over that!!!
