I’ve been thinking about this for 35 years, and he pointed out something I’d never seen.”

CLASSIC TRAILER OF THE DAY
Somewhere in Time” (1980)

We’ve so much love for “Back to the Future”, but there’s so many other terrific time-travel movies out there that aren’t nearly as treasured – and it should be. “Somewhere in Time”, though slightly daggier than Robert Zemeckis’ fabbo adventure, is a delightful little ‘trip back’ starring Christopher Reeve and Jane Seymour. If you’re planning on having a ‘time travel’ themed video night sometime, you must add this to your line-up (and, for that matter, “Time After Time”).
