It was released in 2004 and is one of the movies I came across while looking for clips that have a time-travel  type of theme. It is a very geeky kind of story with some guys trying to come up with some revolutionary tech to change the world and get rich, but "accidentally" find out that they are able to travel back either a few hours or days in the past. How the machine works and the plot line are more complicated than I can easily explain on an OP but it is one of those kind of movies you'll want to watch several times (if your like me) so that you can understand how EVERYTHING happens and how what is the cause of all the strangeness that happens in the end. After watching it a couple times my mind was kind of blown more or less by just the concept of it.

If anyone wants a hint, like most movies about time/dimensional travel everything is more or less 'ok' until the rules that the people doing time travel get broken a few too many times and/or someone gets obsessed with fixing things that perhaps shouldn't be fixed.   gaah.gif

You mean like the Flash?

I saw Primer a long time ago.
You talking about Flash the show or Flash as in movie? I'm not that familiar with the show and not sure if they did or didn't create a movie. I know that sounds stupid but I lately have been either working a lot or in a household where I have little to no chance at watching any TV programs that I would like to watch so I'm kind of dumb when it comes to show for the last 5-10 years.

im sure ill forget it again tomorrow too.

maybe its age creeping up...or all the weed  beercheer.gif
That and/or ADHD like I have.  I'm constantly losing track of things I plan to do and need to do.  It is part of the reason I don't get pets for myself since the last thing I had to take care of was a plant (bamboo shoots) and by the time I realize I needed to water it, it was already at the point of no return. I'm almost as bad as that guy in One Crazy Summer who is driving around with his Christmas tree still strapped to his car.

I agree, but the interesting part is that Primer was made supposedly with a budget of only $7,000 so obviously the producer and other people involved where very limited in what they could do. The "time machine" is merely a container covered in plastic with a buch of wireds all over it which is put in a local storage unit, however the way the film is done it is fairly convincing that it isn't just a just a prop.

In the end it is the story and characters in this film that make it what it is and I was surprised that the people that did it might not even be real actors.

I don't think I'm more stupid than anyone here but time traveling movies confuse me greatly. The concept blows my mind and I don't want to go anywhere really. I'd go to some modern time with modern medicine if I had to do it.

Here is a small list of movies with the theme of time travel (and/or dimensional travel) in them:

Primer
Lost highway
Timecrimes
12 Monkeys
Donnie Darko
Time After Time (1979 film)
The Butterfly Effect (2004)
The Time Machine
The Philadelphia Experiment
Project Almanac
The Infinite Man


...the reason I compiled this list is because one of the Anime music videos I'm working on has such a theme to it. Also I'm planning on using scenes from Bioshock Infinite as well as Singularity. If watching a SINGLE movie about time travel is a bit mind blowing try to imagine watching a 5 minute video that uses at least 12 different sources to create it. blink.gif

In a nutshell I hope to use the idea of "information overload"/techno-culture shock to my advantage to create something somewhat entertaining. At least that is what I hope is the effect

No, that's not it. There are fairly new movies that may not have been big enough productions to make the lists.

Do you have any suggestions? I'll do another check to see if there are any notable movies out there that would help as a source of clips.

I'll check out interstellar. The video I'm doing for using Primer and time manipulation will have a slightly funny angle but also slightly more serious than some other vids. There is another vid I'm working on which is about the end of the world, Cthulhu, craziness, zombies, etc which could use a some of the more lighthearted parts for it.
