  1. indeed this reminds me of the movie time crimes or CRONO-CRIMENES(original Spanish movie from Spain). Funny movie, same kind of premise and foolish outcome lol! Love these time travel movies!

  2. He used his pet to try out an untested experiment and he's supposed to be a likeable main character? I immediately wished him ill.

  3. WOW! It took me a while to see this – I had to draw it out for myself.

    The first Howard see's his future self dead, and is tricked in to going back to shoot his future self, thinking his future self was going to kill him.

    So in effect he terminated the loop by killing his future self and thus the police would find him. As there is no more alive future Howard.

    The original Jim had won the funding, but also got a call from future wet Jim warning him to talk the machine (hence the box). He tried to steal the machine, but is stopped by his own future version, who tricks howard into killing his future self and then send original Jim to the future where he stops himself from stealing – in effect pausing original Jim (hiding him).

    The original jim is stuck in the loop, but because Jim sent himself to future, the future jim can continue on his way.

  4. Wow I love this film. My favourite short film yet. I just liked how the whole story played out. How each and every event had a consequence

  5. Why would the guy need a gun just in case? Why would he need a gun for protection? It's like the only smart thing Craig’s Dad said in Friday. ”You live to fight another day.” Stop fucking planning for worse case scenario. Or stop using violence as a solution or your plan for the worst case scenario.

  6. Ground Hog Day personified… By your own self egotism…
    If Unknowingly to change the morning it they morning anytime after that you have fled..
    One thing missing…WHY AND HOW AND WHAT MADE YOU or that time traveller SHOOT HIMSELF INITIALLY
    There is no reference to his first time…
    And if I was able to STEAL TIME I wud go forward not back …nincompoop…..

  7. Quarks were all formed at the same time. To believe you can time travel is to believe you can take quarks out of the Higgs field at age X, and place them back in at age X+n, or X-n. Not going to happen. Time_Travel_Tales are all about how our temporal lobes trick us, just tales of whataboutism, so we can time travel in imagination. But it is fun, and it is uniquely human on our planet. Exception: Recent mappings of the hippocampus in birds indicates they can play back scenarios of past experiences & understand them as their own past events, thus they can modify their future actions. Not surprising really. Can they imagine future actions? It looks like they can. For centuries humans have referred to this as training our pets. After all we train ourselves this way and pets really don't need us to assist them.

  8. Theoretically speaking, time travel to the past won't cause you moving around in space, because you are only traveling to the future until you reach the replay of the big bang around the few minutes before you started to play fast forward.

  9. So the guy respawns at a "5 min later place" but still makes it to his house in less that 5 min ? Brilliant.

  10. 😍😍😍Wow… I really loved this one… Apart from Time Travel and its relevance it hooked me up that what is going on. I wish to officially remake this one in my native language "Telugu – India" with your permission… I Please consider me…. Thank you. 😇😇😇

  11. OMG he created a loop.. a perfect unbreakable Howard loop, Jim is a lying genius.. best villain in movie history when u think of it. Brilliant script, loved the opening with the dog so hollywood inspiring.. And the pool balloon & scarfs where key to the story though u never realise it the first instance. Wish the best to the directors future endeavours.

  12. Well done, tho our supposed protagonist is incredibly dense…..makes it alittle hard to be immersed for me

  13. The greatests time travel episode I have ever seen,or the best short storyfilm I have ever seen of a theatrical l enactment of a linear function

  14. Well, if i see myself in the future, the first thing im gonna do, is to send me back in time to make love to my grand grand grand grand grand grand grand mom, so ill be in an internall loop without mixing the blood in bad way, then ill rule the world till i get bored and have enought time to thing what to do next…. 😂

  15. H e should have at least tried to find out why he would kill himself the first time he comes back , one silly move had him trapped in a time in a never ending paradox cox now the past him killed future him and he is trapped in the past

  16. Well….. If the Earth rotates at 1000 miles per hour and you traveled back in time 5 minutes but not space, you would be 83 miles from the starting point. He then ran back to his house in about 8 minutes. That would mean he ran 625 miles per hour.
    Oh, and the Earth travels around the Sun and the entire solar system travels through space at 448 thousand miles per hour. So…. Not changing your location, in 5 minutes you would be like 37 thousand miles off planet Earth.

  17. Oh I get it…the 1st James was actually he who had been sent back in time by the last James who ultimately stole the machine. So, from the beginning we were seeing James from the future and that's why he brought the suitcase.

  18. Unless you can run at 500mph you won’t ever “make it in time”. Also the planet moves on other vectors beyond sun orbit at even greater velocities.

  19. Ok I'm gonna try to run down this timeline as best as I can this is how I think it is.
    Timeline 1: Howard creates a time machine and catches Jim trying to steal it so somehow Jim goes back in time to change the timeline
    Timeline 2: Jim 1 goes and finds himself in the new timeline and tells Jim 2 to go to Howard's house with that exact case. Jim 2 goes to Howard's house and does what his other self told him to do. Howard goes back in time and makes a paradox that shoots himself Jim 2 take the time machine and meets up with Jim 1 again and waits for Howard to come back and tells Howard about shooting himself which makes Howard go back in time. Now Jim 2 goes back in time.
    Timeline 3: Jim 2 meets Jim 3 and tells him everything that Jim 1 told him.(all of the previous events of timeline 2 will play out just without Jim 1). Jim 3 goes back in time and Jim 2 takes the time machine for himself.
    (Timeline 3 is the one we are seeing in the Short film)

  20. There's a few short films like this. One I remember ended up with 18 versions of the same person. Paradox overload.

  21. I would have grabbed the gun after seeing what happened to myself the first time thus stopping me from shooting myself to then give a chance to explain to the other me whats happened, bloody awsome keep up the great work.
