Fun with Temporal Mechanics

With Palm Springs getting so many great reviews on Hulu, we thought we should call out some of our favorite movies that smash the time/space continuum.  Here’s a list of librarian Tekedra’s favorite picks:

 

man waving from inside a clock

Groundhog Day

This is the original stuck in a time loop movie. I love this movie because the concept begins like a terrible practical joke and ends with the actual change in a person’s personality. It’s silly and kind of profound.

The Lake House

I’m not that into Romantic movies, but it’s a Keanu/Sandra Bullock movie that feeds my secret need for a Keanulock ship.

Back to the Future Trilogy

I don’t think you can have a list on time travel WITHOUT the Back to the Future movies.

12 Monkeys

A twisty, bizarre, thoroughly entertaining movie.

Somewhere in Time

Okay, so remember how I said I didn’t like romantic movies very much. This is a heavy exception. It’s schmaltzy and mushy and terribly saccharine…and I have to admit, I loved every minute of it.

Peggy Sue Got Married

This movie is one of the few Nicolas Cage movies that I will admit to liking, probably because Kathleen Turner is in it. She is great.
