I like this one a lot, 16 June 2016
Author: Stuart Fisher from Dundee, Scotland

I've watched more time travel movies than I can remember. They've all been interesting but this one sticks in my mind as the one I like the most.

I think it's because James Belushi's character is completely unpredictable and Kylie Travis' character becomes increasingly desperate as a result. I guess it's also because I like the idea that even if you have the ability to travel in time, that doesn't mean you'll automatically be able to change the outcome.

I guess I also like the idea of having female lead characters in science fiction movies. Alien, for example, works well for me for that reason too.
