Thursday Movie Picks - Time Loops
This week's theme from Wandering Through The Shelves are movies featuring time loops. These three picks came pretty quickly to me this week. I adore all three films I'm about to talk about.
1) Looper - This might seem too easy, but I adore Rian Johnson's movie about a man whose job it is to travel through time and take people out.
2) See You Yesterday - This movie is about two teenagers who build a time machine to stop one of their brothers from being murdered by a police officer. Last I checked, this was available on Netflix and it's a quick, yet powerful watch.
3) Palm Springs - This film about two people stuck in a time loop at a wedding is fun. The actors bounce off each other so well.
Looper is the only film in that list that I've seen. I haven't seen the other 2 picks as I also wanted to go for something really different.ReplyDelete
They're both worth checking out!Delete
I've only seen Palm Springs. I liked it, mostly because of Andy Samberg, but by the end I was ready for it to be over.ReplyDelete
Groundhog Day occurred to me of course but my initial thought was a nifty 1947 noir called Repeat Performance. It begins with Joan Leslie shooting her husband dead on New Year's Eve and fleeing their apartment but when she returns he's there, alive and it's a full year earlier.
Oh I haven't heard of Repeat Performance! i'll have to look that up.Delete
These are 3 great movies. I'm really happy that See You Yesterday is getting some love. Quick, yet powerful indeed.ReplyDelete
Yes! I adored it.Delete
I haven’t seen See You Yesterday, I think I thought it would be too juvenile.ReplyDelete
Palm Springs is one I want to watch.
It's actually pretty heavy. Not juvenile at all.Delete
I've seen and enjoyed Looper. The other two have been recommended to me, so I'm guessing I'll get to them soon.ReplyDelete
I hope you like them! Especially See You Yesterday. The kids were great in that.Delete
Have you seen Predestination? First movie that comes to mind when I think time loops, and I’d highly recommend it. Sadly one that flew way under the radar.ReplyDelete
I did! I had a hard time following that movie, but I thought Sarah Snook was great in it.Delete
I actually really adored Palm Springs and think I prefer "romantic" time loop movies? I also loved The Map of Tiny Perfect Things (which was said to be like a teen Palm Springs) and the German movie Hello Again - a wedding a day, where the lead character has to witness her best friend, who she thinks she loves, get married again every single day.ReplyDelete
I'll have to look up Hello Again. I love German movies.Delete
I have to see Looper one day because I like both leads. I don’t know the other 2 but would be willing to give them a watch.ReplyDelete
Looper is SO GOOD! Highly recommend. I think all are great, but that's the clear winner.Delete
I've heard nothing but good things about Palm Springs. I really need to check it out some time 😅ReplyDelete
Yes you do!Delete
I knew I could count on you to pick Looper! I've never even heard of See You Yesterday but I love time travel so I'm hoping it's on the UK Netflix :DReplyDelete
I hope so too because it's so good! I love Looper lol. Great movie.Delete
