Maybe it's a strained comparison, but the recent Looper did exactly the same thing Bruce Willis' character remarking, 'I don't want to talk about time travel because if we start talking about it then we're going to be here all day talking about it, making diagrams with straws'.

As one of the most beloved films of the 1980s, the temptation to develop a contrarian hatred of it is an especially strong one, but fortunately the film is strong enough to overcome that in just about every regard.

The film may be about going back to the future, but a majority of the fun is all about finding the ways around the past past or future, this is an 85 movie going 88 miles per hour in a two-hour window, which turns into a 20th century milestone in cinema history and continues straight into the 90s, as well as into a complete trilogy but lets not get ahead of ourselves her.
