Fun time travel short is like a silly version of Terminator

If I had a chat with my future self it would go something like this: I’d ask him if I achieved all my hopes and dreams and he’d be totally bitter and would absolutely complain about how lazy I’ve been and all opportunities I’ve missed. The hero of this film has that kind of chat but, unlike me, he is able to confront… »9/21/15 9:29pm9/21/15 9:29pm

Short Film About a Woman Stuck in a Time Paradox Makes Found Footage Fresh Again

Found footage films are everywhere these days, but few short films use the concept as effectively as Timelike does. That’s because it puts its own spin on a familiar concept: one night, a young physics student receives a message from her future self. What follows quickly goes from unnerving to distressing. »8/12/15 6:45pm8/12/15 6:45pm

Short film: Having a one-minute time machine is hilariously useful

Here’s the problem with time travel, we always dream too big and think about going back in time to see dinosaurs (they’ll eat you) or gladiators (they’ll kill you) or other important moments in history (they’ll all be racist). Fact: Life sucked back then! You wouldn’t want to go back. It’s way better to go back one… »7/09/15 2:26am7/09/15 2:26am

Arnold Somehow Saves Terminator Genisys From Being A Total Disaster

Arnold Schwarzenegger is once again playing a machine cloaked in human skin in Terminator Genisys, but now he’s the most human thing in a plastic movie. Arnie’s trademark grimace looks rough around the edges, like a slab of petrified wood after years of erosion. In a movie that’s basically shitty comfort food, the… »7/01/15 1:08pm7/01/15 1:08pm

Fun short film about time travel is like a silly verison of Terminator

When a film sends a robot back into time to kill a baby, it's always going to bring back memories of the Terminator movies. But this short, Future Hero by Ramin Serry, is so much sillier and goofier and weirder that you almost forget about Ahnold. It's about a lazy dad and his future, time traveling son battling a… »4/15/15 8:59pm4/15/15 8:59pm

Short film: The hilarious truth about time travel is that we're selfish

If you could travel through time where would you go? To the future? To go see dinosaurs? And what would you do? Cure cancer? Prevent wars? Sure. But what about just using time travel to selfishly make your life easier? It sounds silly but it really might be the funniest thing you can do with time travel. »12/01/14 10:55pm12/01/14 10:55pm

Take a Sneak Peek Behind the Science of Interstellar

Wired just published a meaty feature on Kip Thorne and the science behind Interstellar. Thorne, one of the world's most celebrated theoretical physicists, worked with director Christopher Nolan to ensure that depictions of things like black holes and wormholes would be accurate in the film. And also spectacular. »10/22/14 12:51pm10/22/14 12:51pm

A Brief History of Scientists Hunting for Time Travelers

Time travel is possible—or at least a lot of serious physicists say so. It's probably not possible to pull it off in a souped-up Delorean, but there are wormholes, Tipler cylinders, and other Einstein-inspired theories for how it could work. Which raises the question: Why haven't we met any visitors from another time? »10/09/14 3:03pm10/09/14 3:03pm
