Black Knight (2001)
on Wednesday, December 5, 2012
December is Time Travel Month for Phil Buni, because screw Christmas! (Also, he did his Christmas specials back in July.) First up is Black Knight, a comedy where Martin Lawrence, one of the least funny actors of our time, works at a Medieval Times-style theme park, but then ends up traveling back in time to the actual medieval times! Did you notice how many times we said "time" in this description? It's a theme month!
Why we want Batman to beat Superman
“There’s something almost fetishistic about the way people would love to see the Dark Knight take the Man of Steel down a peg or two.”Timecrimes (2007)
“We’re really only seeing a woman being forced to strip naked in the woods because the writer wanted to see a woman forced to strip naked in the woods.”Safety Not Guaranteed (2012)
“Without the hook of the internet-famous ad, it’s doubtful that many people would have heard or cared about this sporadically funny and rather unassuming film.”The Butterfly Effect (2004)
Phil's special Time Travel Month continues with The Butterfly Effect! Ashton Kutcher has the hereditary power to travel back in time, which he uses to try to fix things, but instead he just screws up the present more and more. Unfortunately, this movie doesn't understand how time travel works, or even the fundamental concept behind its own title.Time Changer (2002)
It's the belated final episode of Time Travel Month! Phil Buni looks at Time Changer, a really poorly made Christian sci-fi film where a professor from 1890 gets in Captain Stubing's time machine and travels to 2002. There, he's horrified to discover that America is no longer the god-fearing country it never was. It's hilariously awful!Timeline (2003)
“They join the battle alongside the French, all the while causing, presumably, numerous time paradoxes by blatantly messing with history. Or not. Timeline doesn’t really concern itself with such trivia.”
