Frequently Asked Questions About Time Travel

There have been many time travel movies throughout the decades, from the classics like The Time Machine, to Back To The Future, The Jacket, The Butterfly Effect and the brilliant indie movie Primer. All have a different take on how it all works. But none of them have entertained the nerd within me more than the hilarious and complex Frequently Asked Questions About Time Travel. Not a new movie - it came out in 2009 - it almost passed everyone by. I'm not really sure why, because this low-budget gem is lovely!

It follows two Sci Fi (sorry, Science Fiction, or SF) fans who spend their time working nerdy jobs in the day and talking nerdy stuff in the pub by night. Along with their cooler, more sceptical, critical friend they inadvertently end up on an isolated trek through time via a time leak in the toilets of their local, helped along the way by one sexy SF time travel chick and hunted by another. Full of twisty-turny (I struggled to not write Timey-Wimey) scenes exploring the more complex, responsibility-laden aspects of time travel. I won't give the game away, but for a movie set exclusively within a pub it is amazing.

Frequently Asked Questions About Time Travel stars Chris O'Dowd (The IT Crowd), Marc Wootton (My New Best Friend) and Dean Lennox Kelly (Being Human, Doctor Who). Watch it if you can!
