I'm not going to sit here and say I understood the whole thing... but I don't need to understand a movie completely to enjoy it. (Swimming Pool, anyone? How about Mulholland Drive? Or any Lynch movie for that manner?)
Jesus, that timeline is more complicated than the movie. Um... I guess I still won't completely understand the movie b/c I'd have to sit down for a good 2 hours, with the movie playing, to figure that out. I think that timeline must be for pretentious assholes.
so ****in good. FINALLY just saw it. It really kicked my ass. I understood the entire thing up until the last 5 minutes, I think I'll just need to rewatch that shit. I loved the human drama that surrounded the concept of time travel and how that was the focus instead of just travelling to a bunch of random places and times to do everything everyone's always wanted to. This felt real and that's why it was great. Scientists responsible and intelligent enough to know how to make one of these machines would theoretically also be intelligent and respsonsible enough to know what to change, how big of a change to make and how.
This movie made me never want to time travel and it's seriously ****ing awesome. This is exactly what I mean when I say that you don't need an enormous budget or any cg bullshit to make a fantasy movie and that no matter how little action there is, a solid screenplay with convincing performances and very natural dialogue is so hard to come by. This movie did it for me.
Man, I totally recommend this movie for anyone with an attention span. ( i know why thundercat didn't like it halfway through, cause some people just don't have the love for this kind of stuff-he liked dark knight strikes again better than long halloween and i did the inverse, so it's just not his flava, understood
) i for one loved it.
man. so good. high five bigwhiteryan.
