This sounds very much like a description of H.G. Wells' The Time Machine. It has been adapted to film more than once, but the two most famous ones are from 1960 (which I haven't seen yet though) and from 2002, which I have seen and know that it invloves a partially destroyed moon at some point in the future. And given that you didn't say the movie itself ...
First of all, you have some parts wrong in your timeline and are missing others. So lets go through it again step by step: The time taken to travel from Earth to the wormhole is 2yrs. Check, aggregate = 2. After that we don't know how much time passed on Earth while they were travelling the wormhole. Could be 10yrs judging from the ...
The time travel logic of Interstellar follows the Novikov self-consistency principle (which physicist Kip Thorne, associated with the movie, did work on). Different time travel stories handle the logic of time travel in different ways. Consider the grandfather paradox, where you go back in time and kill your grandfather. In some stories, it's possible for ...
Here's a neat diagram that will help you see the events happening in a chronology. (Source : Predestination Timeline Explained) The link has a lot more detailed explanation. Follow it from the Pink, to the Blue to the Green for chronology. It would be: 1) Jane left at orphanage 2) Jane meets and falls in love with an unknown man (John) 3) Unknown man ...
That movie is called The Time Machine
If Marty & Doc would have dug up the 1885 Delorean, then it wouldn't have been in the cave in 1955. Therefore the Marty in 1885 would possibly cease to exist.
The second draft of the script states that Phil was cursed by his ex-girlfriend. After they trimmed her character from later versions of the script (finally removing her entirely for the film), that plotline made no sense so they seem to have decided to simply leave it as an un-resolved question: CUT TO: INSERT : A THICK BOOK The cover reads "101 ...
You can find both scenes in Samson and the Seven Miracles of the World from 1961: In his eternal wandering Maciste finds himself in 13th Century China rescuing a Chinese prince and princess from the Tartars and leading the Chinese into a revolt against them. In one scene, a row of people is buried in the sand and secured with stocks and a bladed ...
Could be the Dutch film Crusade in Jeans from 2006. From Wiki: Dolf is a 15-year-old boy from Rotterdam who plays for the junior national football team. At the beginning of the film, Dolf and his team are playing an important championship game against the Belgian team in the German city of Speyer, which they lose because of Dolf. Dolf's mother works ...
Also possibly too old (1988) and British rather than American, but it does sound suspiciously like Moondial
Is it Something Wicked This Way Comes? I remember a demonic aging carousel in that, although it's a little older than what you described.
Maybe Freejack or Slipstream? There's also a pretty comprehensive list of Time Travel movies on wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Time_travel_films
The Butterfly Effect is a metaphor for a real scientific phenomenon. There are many really systems like weather, the Kepler problem in planetary movement, etc, where a tiny change at the beginning can lead to an enormous effect later on. In Mr. Nobody, one tiny initial change is that Nemo's father forgets to set the handbrake. This causes ever larger ...
The following analysis is based off my opinion and personal interpretation, therefore may be pictured differently by other people. Also spoilers will follow, duh. Mr nobody isn’t about any particular person. In fact it is about nobody. It simply is about the impossibility of choice that we have to make throughout our lives based completely off our ...
Let me add more to the answers. reference : Triangle TimeLoop or DeathLoop explained Aeolus is the name of the liner. In mythology, Sisyphus, the son of Aeolus breaks a promise he makes to death. As a result he is punished by being compelled to roll an immense boulder up a hill, only to watch it roll back down, and to repeat this action forever. Ring a ...
I believe that the time tuner cannot surpass reminding over a day. On a replica timer tuner I own it has inscribed on it: "I count the hours, every one. Yet have I to outrun the sun." I think this means that the time tuner doesn't have the power to go back a day's time. All magic has its limits right?
