Shane Carruth’s time travel movie primer is one hell of a trip. To say it is confusing at times is an understatement. The film is based around two regular guys who go about discovering a machine that enables time travel. The consequences are dire.
Carruth spared no technological term or method. He has a background in physics and mechanical engineering. he left all the tech jargon and lingo in the film. The film has a 7000 dollar budget. Primer went on to make almost a million dollars in the box office and is one of the best success stories for a low budget film. He wrote, directed, starred in, and produced the film to help with he low costing budget.
Primer was exactly what hard science fiction needed. A film true to the science and field it is exploring. The time travel genre is often out there with some odd new form of travel and a science to go with it. Primer is just obscure enough and reveals enough of the science to give us what we needed in the science fiction genre.
Gun it to 88 with me and check out one of, if not the greatest sci fi comedies this side of Ghost busters( coming soon lol) .
Back to the Future is directed by Robert Zemeckis and staring Michael J Fox,Christopher,
I love everything about this movie, from Christopher Lloyd as Doc Brown to Huey Lewis and the news’s awesome The Power of Love.
Everyone knows the story. Marty McFly local bad ass and teen high school misfit, along with Doc. Brown go back in time and cause mayhem and almost unravel time completely.
Back to the Future is chalk full of pop culture that has been referenced ever since the film came out.
Back to the Future takes an extremely complex subject such as time travel and makes it fun for anyone. The best parts of the film have to be Doc. Brown and Marty’s interactions and dialogues.
Marty eventually goes back to 1955 to when Doc invented Time travel. He must convince him to start work on the flux capacitor and construct the time machine. He also has to avoid advances from his mother of all people and make sure his parents get together. THE film is full of jokes and the past basically parallels everything from the present time, from Biff making fun of McFly senior with the exact same jokes.
All in all everyone knows the story. We have all seen this film multiple times, and if you haven’t then you have to hatch it right now.
This is a pure 5/5. Not many films do what Future does and less as well. It is truly a work of pure movie greatness that I will continue to enjoy for years to come.-Justin
