    Just watching one of my favourite ever films. Just amazing that they are using 50s designed Citroen cars which were so far ahead of their time they are passing them off as future vehicles.

    The first and third films are much better though don't you think ?

    The second one just seemed like a long trailer.

    I have all 3 on DVD which is a guilty watch if Mrs B isn't about.

    I have the extended versions of all 3 of the Lord of the Rings films on DVD

    The second one (The Two Towers) - is one of my all time top ten films.

    I have only seen a few scenes of each film but I do find Michael J Fox has that unique and rare split second timing which means he can even deliver lines we know are coming, but in a way that makes you laugh anyhow.

    The definitive time paradox movies, and a personal favourite.

    If you like that sort of thing but with a slightly more grown up sensibility, try the not so well-known 2007 Spanish film Time Crimes. There was talk of a Hollywood adaption but it hasn't happened yet.

    A very interesting trilogy and the 1st is one of my faves.

    I think, if my memory is correct, they filmed 6 weeks with a different actor, but decided it wasn't working out and started again with M J Fox who was their 1st choice, but was contracted to a TV show that had prevented him playing the part, initially.

    It is scary that 1985 to 1955 is thirty years, but 1985 - 2018 is > thirty tears!

    P.S. I think (I may be wrong) Parts II and III were filmed as one, but released a year or two apart to maximise revenue, something Lord of the Rings replicated with some success, whereas the Hobbit didn't! (In my opinion, The Hobbit should have been 2 films max. possibly one).

    Time Lapse is an excellent time paradox film.
