Time Travel Month continues with Phil's very first top ten list! He reveals the top ten darkest moments of Puella Magi Madoka Magica, a 2011 anime series where a schoolgirl named Madoka becomes a Magical Girl and battles dangerous monsters known as "witches". Warning: This review contains spoilers. So. Many. Spoilers.
This meta-mashup movie stars Josh Hutcherson and Dane Cook in a high school comedy/drama that morphs into a slasher movie, which them morphs into a sci-fi story involving body switching, time travel, and the end of the world. Sure, given the time of year, there are other movies more appropriate for Phil's Time Travel Month, but no way and no how is he reviewing any movie version of A Christmas Carol.Yes, you can be sexist about fictional characters
“It’s not the nonexistent feelings of a fictional woman that’s drawing ire, it’s that two real men are revealing their real (and not so great) attitudes towards women.”

“Despite the epic length, most of the cast will turn out to have existed to explore ideas or play second fiddle to the father/daughter relationship.”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.Never Say Never Again (1983): the lost recap (part 3)

“This magical girl anime is different from all the others, in that there are no girls in it.”
