Their request was for six films about time travel. bent back tulips also donated to MeFi and is interested in sci-fi thrillers, so I'm doubling down on this one, which is helpful since there are a lot of good films available.

This is for people who love Hong Kong excess, Power Ranger-level camp, and general silliness.

Traveling back in time to teenage me to tell her, if you're watching this for Aaron Kwok, forget it. For scheduling reasons he'll only show up for 5 mins.

This is one of the best HK action-comedies I have ever seen, even if it spends like half its runtime being a goofy high school comedy instead. It's a better Street Fighter movie than the actual Street Fighter movie!

I host a weekly movie stream for some like-minded HK trash aficionados and this is a collective favorite. We recently re-watched it on July 1 because that was the 30th anniversary of the date the time machine was set to.

(Also as a PSA, there's a Blu-Ray HD release of this floating around now.)
