I love time travel stories. Last year's Looper got things almost perfect. "Almost" because every time travel story falls apart if you look too closely. But that's okay, because the best time travel stories tell us more about ourselves than they do about time travel.
That could be why my favorite time travel movie often isn't even classified as sci-fi. It's a comedy. Groundhog Day follows Phil Connors (Bill Murray) as he lives the same day over and over again. It's a simple, brilliantly-executed premise. What would you do if you could live the same day over and over? Would you use that time to better yourself? Would you try to live the perfect day? Or would you even purposely make mistakes because there would be no repercussions the next day?
If you don't have plans this Saturday, February 2, I highly recommend watching "Groundhog Day" on Groundhog Day. If you haven't seen it, you're in for a treat. If you have, I think you'll agree that this is a day you'll want to relive again and again.
