Time Travel has always seem to be an exciting concept for me.Travel back in time, screw around with anything and you have millions of paradoxes which will take effect one after the other. It take us in to another dimension of possibilities (The fourth dimension actually!!).We measure the passage of time in seconds, minutes, hours and years, but this doesn’t mean time flows at a constant rate. Just as the water in a river rushes or slows depending on the size of the channel, time flows at different rates in different places. In other words, time is relative. (Yeah, now you remember a scientist called Albert Einstein??)
So the most interesting question is, can we ever achieve time travel and build those scrappy/fancy looking metal doors time machine?.Well, i am not here to bore you with Time Travel wiki, You can read that stuff out via Google.But as today as i was watching yet another Time Travel flick, i decided to come up with my own list of the Best 3 Time Travel movies i watched.
1. Back to the Future Trilogy:
When Robert Zemeckis was trying to sell the idea of this film, one of the companies he approached was Disney, who turned it down because they thought that the story of a mother falling in love with her son (albeit by a twist of time travel) was too risky for a film under their banner. Well Bad Luck to them..
A great film that manages to tackle the cause & effect of time travel, while maintaining the humor aspect. For me it is the greatest time travel movie of all time.If you like the first part, you sure can’t keep your hands off the second and the third as well. And it also inspired our Bollywood fraternity to stage a bad rip-off ‘Action Replay’ with pathetic acting by Ash and Akshay Kumar.Michael J Fox arguably stands out in this movie and fits in perfectly to play Marty McFly.
IMDB rates it a 8.5 but for me it is a clear 9/10.
2.Terminator 2: Judgement Day:
“Asta la Vista, Baby!!”.
This is the movie which transformed me in to an Arnie Fan. From being shown on Star Movies for thousand times to being ripped of hindi, i have seen this movie more than i have counted the stars in the sky( Yeah Right!!)..Was not a fan of the first part, but this one will always be my favorite in all the Terminator Series. Add to that the insane action sequences and this one is a BLOCKBUSTER..
3. 12 Monkeys:
- Twelve Monkeys
““Look at them. They’re just asking for it. Maybe the human race deserves to be wiped out.”
A man sent in to the past to know the origins of the virus that swept off most of the human race from the Earth and left only a few. This concept was kind of adopted by Heroes series in the first season where Hiro Nakamura comes to the past to warn Peter ‘ Save the Cheerleader, Save the World‘.
An intriguing movie (but kind of slowish to start with). Definitely worth a watch.
If you are a fan of Sci-Fi and time travel like me, i would just like to say, Welcome to the League Boss!! 🙂
