Man of Tomorrow, Americatown, Wunderkind, Midnight at Noon, The Broken, The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, McArthy, The Final Broadcast, Ground Control to Major Tom (only if it has a sci-fi horror theme), and The Equilizer (starring Denzel) all sound promising too.

Okay here we go!

The ones I like:

A country Of Strangers, Story of your life, Glimmer (I like B Horror films), Comancheria, The ballad of Pablo Escobar, Man of Tomorrow, El Tigre, Murder City, Black Box, Cherries, The Broken, The Disciple Program, The winter kills, Out name is Adam, Untitled Cops script, Ground control to major Tom, Hibernation, Midnight at noon, Almanac, Come and find me, king of heists.

I'd give all those movies a Trailer Chance, Then I'd probably only like 5-15 of those trailers and then I'd probably only SEE 5-7 of them.

But that's just me lol..

It's only a mindf*ck because it makes no sense.

Basically, it's the movie equivalent of Christmas lights stored in the attic for five years. You know what I mean.

Ultimately, Primer makes no sense because it isn't logically consistent. The movie, ends, and I'm not trying to spoil it, with multiple copies of the actors, and that's all fine, but if it were true time travel, you'd have to have a solution to the obvious paradox, and one isn't offered, but the writers do take you on a headspinning trip.

@Tanman: no one has time traveled, that much is true, but to end up with copies of yourself is a gross violation of the second law of thermodynamics, so no, I don't think you'd end up with more than one copy of yourself no matter how much you time traveled, and even if you did the universe next door thing, you'd still violate the laws of thermodynamics.

Copies of yourself is very stupid lol, It's basically impossible, Unless you looked at it like this: You go back in time to Last night, Go to your house, Now there's 2 of you in your house. Technically There's 2 of you, But not necisarily a 'copy'

And for the topic of 'has anyone time traveled'

I'm kind of iffy on that idea, Because if you think about it, We would NEVER know if someone went and change the past, Because it wouldnt be changing OUR past but creating a new Future for everyone from then on.

I think.. Lol.. Not to mention that I've read a lot of claims on Time travel and how some people have 'crossed through' for a brief moment accidentally.

Or that famous Case of that kid in like 2004 who claimed on an online thread (much like this) That he was from the future and so forth. Very convincing but most likely untrue, If I Remeber the guys name... It's an interesting read lol
minkowski writes:
on December 19th, 2012 at 6:06:27 PM

@Rambo: lol! I don't even want to imagine where those closed fingers have been.

@tanman: that doesn't work, because in order you to still be around in the future after you've gone back in the past, your past self has to return to its future. It's called consistency.

Sure, for the moment, there's two of you, but one is on a closed time loop extending into a "future" portion of the four-dimensional space-time manifold.

Contrarily, Primer ends not with any sort of consistency, but essentially saying "there's a bunch of us now, go out into the world but don't interact with your double", which is just wrong.

The writers clearly didn't understand the physical basics of time-travel, or else they didn't care or else they had no clue how to end the script in any other way.

"And for the topic of 'has anyone time traveled'"

No one has time-traveled. Sure, I can't prove a negative any more than I can prove someone's personal god doesn't exist, but the physics are clear: you'd need truly fantastic if not infinite energy to bend space and consequently time back on itself, and even then, you could go no further than the initial point in history the time machine came into existence.

The bad guy stuck him in a car on a mountain road and knocked him out and welded the door shut and tore out the brakes and started him to his death, and he woke up and tried to steer and tried to get out but the car went off a cliff before he could escape! And it crashed and burned and I was so upset and excited, and the next week, you better believe I was first in line. And they always start with the end of the last week. And there was Rocketman, trying to get out, and here comes the cliff, and just before the car went off the cliff, he jumped free! And all the kids cheered! But I didn't cheer. I stood right up and started shouting. This isn't what happened last week! Have you all got amnesia? They just cheated us! This isn't fair! HE DID'NT GET OUT OF THE c*ck - A - DOODIE CAR!

Keeping Room sounds awfully similar to Cold Mountain, that one sticks out to me the most.

Some of these could be interesting, so you bet that those are the exact ones that will never be made.

The only scripts that catch my attention is the adaptation of The Equalizer and what I believe to be the next Nolan's project with Johnny Depp sci-fi, Transcendence! the other ones look like wash up crap ideas of f*ck up writers!
