|1:36||That’s my kind of intro - time travel exists.|
|6:36||This is either Ryan Reynolds’ kid or they’ve learnt how to miniaturise him. He acts just like him!|
|8:55||Their shed is bigger than my house!|
|15:37||I can’t believe the jet doesn’t let you on if you’re injured… bound to be a first aid kit on there somewhere.|
|21:57||“Do you ever just have a thought and let it not come out of your mouth?”|
|33:31||Uh oh, robot army!|
|40:20||The house! And she hasn’t renewed the insurance!|
|41:34||Actual hoverboards though.|
|56:55||“You can’t begin to be good at something unless you’re willing to be pfft at it first.”|
|1:03:23||I love Gruffalo, and he does the best nerdy scientist characters.|
|1:12:25||“You’re cooking makes you a borderline serial killer…”|
|1:23:07||So, electromagnetism is terrifying.|
|1:32:56||That’s too close to the Blip for comfort.|
Ah, loved this. It’s a time travel movie, so of course it’s up my street but it was also really well done. Aside from the paradox that just can’t be avoided, it’s a time travel movie that makes sense, stacks up all the way through, and comes to a really satisfying conclusion. Perfect. The kid was amazing, and riffed with Ryan Reynolds so well, and by the time it was the two of them plus the Gruffalo, I really didn’t want to stop watching.
Plus, it had an emotional heart too - from the moment he had to say goodbye to his wife, it was all a bit lump-in-throat, and the end was amazing. If a bit Blip-like. Great film.
