A dying man wants to save himself by creating digital immortality without considering the consequences, and time travelers go back to murder him and save the future of humanity.

Fair, but it does have some significant holes in it. Nisan Arikan is beautiful, but that can’t make up for the flaws. It’s fair, but not recommended; it’s for the extreme collectors.

While the original is an adult film star, an alien doppelganger hangs out and learns Farsi.

God damn this is boring. Maybe it would have been passible with a hot lead, but it was pulled in two directions for the entirety of the movie with no actual plotline using it’s main premise. Hard fail.

I’m not going to spoil this.

Atmospheric and paced, relying on world building and visuals. This is a different sort of bubblegum movie.

Time Jumpers - (2018 movie) image

Entertainment > Movies >

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt8041916/

A compilation of short films of various topics, a couple of which feature time and jumping but none of which justify this title.

Some of these might have been padded out into a passable TV-movie, but nothing is really any good.
