I didn't like the main character. SPOILER


Peter Standish acts like an undisciplined adolescent.
Once he learned that revealing his knowledge of the future upset other people you would think he would make some effort to control himself. I found it very difficult to maintain my sympathetic interest in the film's protagonist.

I find it amazing too. No concern for future descendants. Actions have consequences.

If we can save humanity, we become the caretakers of the world

He tried at first not to mess with time-continuity, but then I guess he got tired of them not being as idyllic as he had imagined they would be...

True, at that point his frustration caused him to be the opposite of careful when it came to revealing future events. I wonder how annoying it would be to constantly have to hide that we're from the future, lol. Becca on Hindsight (on VH1) regularly forgets to hide her future knowledge.


Mag, Darling, you're being a bore.
