An asshole anchorman is sent to a little town to do a fluff story on Groundhog Day, but karma bites him in the ass when the town gets snowed-in.

A fantastic movie not just for the usual things, but for the execution of its idea. Unlike so many movies that have its elements, this one stays grounded and accessible. This movie is well-loved and highly recommended.

From a future destroyed by plague, a prisoner "volunteers" to be sent back in time to fetch pre-infection samples.

A great movie that stands apart both from its contemporaries and even from movies of today. It touches upon a lot of topics I find interesting in movies.

Ancient Relic - (2002 movie) image

Entertainment > Movies >

Archaeologists discover an ancient body with impossible technologies, giving evidence of a time-traveling journalist.

Quite a good movie! With a three hour run time, it was an easy binge and one that strings together seamlessly. A great story, and while it has some storytelling moments, it has unforgiving realism for its characters.

It has only a couple of awkward "like it's totes real, yo" moments because of some characters, but thankfully it's well-balanced and is overall absent of religion aside from the major plot point.

Two interns and a lovesick magazine reporter follow up on a crazy old classified ad requesting a partner for time travel.

It's not exactly a time-travel movie, science fiction, a comedy or a romance or a romantic comedy, but it does have a light dusting of everything. It's "okay".

A writer visiting contemporary Paris is repeatedly transported to 1920s Paris.

This has been described as a romantic comedy, but there is neither romance nor comedy to be found. It's dry and drags its feet.

A military man is enlisted into a mission to save Chicago United States from a terror attack.

A fantastic, emotional, movie. This has all the elements of quality which make a movie truly great.

I'm surprised I took next to no notes. There really isn't any actual "substance" to this film, in the sense that there are few references to people, places, or things. It's all one contained package that is surprisingly easy to lose time with.
