Come timetravel with me
4 April 2020 | by jamesjustice-92See all my reviews

What can I say - I'm a sucker for a good time travel movie. Since I was a little kid I wondered what could've happened if I would've seen myself younger, from a perspective of an older man who has already seen stuff and learned to deal with it. I know I would've wanted myself to correct the mistakes from the past so that I couldn't have ended up alone with nobody by my side but my own bad decisions that led me here, wouldn't we all? James vs. His future self is surprisingly good in terms of storytelling and narrative. It shows all there is to see in life - that they don't call it present out of nothing: it is not only a gift that we should cherish every single day but we also should be in it to witness it firsthand. Daniel Stern is absolutely fantastic in this one; for a while I didn't see him in anything and the way he handled this role kind of reminded me of the old days of Home Alone glory of his and what a brilliant actor he truly is. In short, it is a good movie with fine acting, not extraordinary but a relevant plot, masterful soundtrack and some nice aftertaste.
