Loved it. I did. My expectations weren’t particularly high… But I loved it. Sooooo much. I mean… it hit so many g-spots(Geek-spots!!! LOL)!! Timelords… Firefly/Serenity, Star Trek and Star Wars…and more. So getting it when its out on DVD. The last brit-comedy I saw was a BIG disappointment.(Lesbian Vampire Killers… was a brilliant idea, but ruined by those irritating, supposed funny men Horne and Corden… It was gonna have Conner(Andrew Lee Potts) from Primeval in it… that would have been brilliant… cos he’s lovely. Horne and Corden are slimey…) I’d forgotten how good time travel movies are. Spotting all the crossover points, its just awesome! Chris O’Dowd ROCKED as always. And Shakespeare(from one ep of Dr Who), Dean Lennox Kelly,(more famous for Shameless). The other guy, the inventer of the Ninja Yodeller, I hadn’t really heard of. (Huh…apparantly he was Shirley Ghostman in that Shirley Ghostman show… can’t saw I watched lol.) Not only them, but Anna Faris was in it. Queen of the Scary Movie movies.
Kinda reminded me of a scifi(sorry… Science Fiction lol) version of say… Coupling? Yeah… Coupling… seems about right… (Holy smidt… didn’t realise the director had directed 42 episode of 2 Pints of Larger and a Packet of Crisps… that might be why it felt familiar…)And the remake of ‘Final Countdown’, well that was just pure win. I kinda hope they’ll be a sequal… but it’s probably better left as just one movie. As they said in the movie, hardly any sequals work. Apart from say…Terminator 2, Toy Story 2… (hopefully Iron Man 2 lol) I could probably list more if I thought about it lol. EDIT: As Louki pointed out… Alien 2 or Aliens! Much more fun than the first one.
So, I say, get out and see FAQ About Time Travel NOW before it leaves cinema’s. The last showing at my local is tomorrow. Which sucks… because its only been only for like a week or so… since the 24th. Not even a week… god… its probably cos of all the new movies… Hannah Freakin’ Montana… Wolverine I won’t argue with cos of LIEEEEV’s presence. (Holy crap he’s only 41…. I thought he was older…. older than Jeffrey Dean Morgan at least… but he’s younger!! YUM!) Anyways… yus… rambled a bit… Well it deserved a longer run… I’m sure its running longer in other cinema’s, and it’ll be in the arty one across the road from me soon I bet…. might see it again to see what I missed the first time around lol.
(PS, the guy who wrote the screenplay, has a blog, here. Checks it out! Am a tad annoyed you can’t comment on it without be a team member… so I’ll post the comment I wanted to post there, here.
I….love-love-LOVED FAQ About Time Travel!! It reignited my belief in British Comedy movies. Lesbian Vampire Killers was…well…disappointing… I wished they kept Andrew Lee Potts in it instead of Horne n Corden… nvm. This was a million times better by far!!
Posted a little rant about it in fact lol… found your blog while I was looking round for links and such.
Once again, loved it!! Hope to see more from ya’s!
EDIT: As for a US cinema release, I thought it was getting one, don’t know when, gomen, and DVD release, well I shall be waiting for that too lol.
