what do you like?
twelve monkeys for me, but they are very hard to do aren't they?
I enjoyed it, it's a good love story, but the TT paradoxes really pissed me off. Like he get's taught to pickpocket by an older version of himself. This older version knows it because he was taught it when he was younger... by himself. GAH.
it's like everything is on an infinite loop.
I won't confess to understand what exactly what was going on but if you want some meat and brains with your time travel this is an excellent choice.
I should probably go back over everything I've written at work today :(
It's about this school kid who travels back in time and nearly has sex with his mum while Huey Lewis watches.
BTTF is an obvious fave.
Memento sort of is.
I'm also hella excite!
Donnie Darko (maybe?)
H.G. Wells, The Time Machine
Henry James, The Sense of the Past
Wilson Tucker, The Year of the Quiet Sun
Christopher Priest, The Space Machine
Ray Bradbury, A Sound Of Thunder (DINOSAUR ALERT!)
I can recommend more if you like, and even some academic papers if you're interested.
cheers in advance.
David Lewis "The Paradoxes of Time Travel". From there, it depends what you're interested in - Lewisian time travel or Goedelian tine travel, spatial problems, causal loops, branching histories (my fave), multi-dimensional time travel, or stuff about free will/determinism within time travel. If you PM me I can send you PDF versions of most of this stuff if you want it. Som of it's pretty technical, but it's mostly really really interesting.
Bill & Ted
Is my favourite.
That has time travel right?
Twelve monkeys is one of my favourite films - the big reveal at the end still makes me smile
