Repeat Day – Top 5 Films with Time Loops

Today is Repeat Day. Today is Repeat Day. It is a fun holiday celebrated every year on June 3, giving you an excuse to do things over and over again! So, for today, you (un)officially have the right to do your favorite things as many times as you like! Watch your favorite movies twice, take two servings of everything, dress up twice during the day, etc. You get the drift.

When it comes to films, there are instances of numerous repeats – we’re talking about the use of time loops. Time loops are simply repeated periods of time, which are re-experienced by the characters stuck in them. They are also sometimes referred to as causal loops or temporal loops. Stories with such loops focus on the character learning from each successive loop through time. Thankfully there is usually some hope of breaking out of the vicious circle of repetition.

These loops are usually found in sci-fi movies for obvious reasons and it is certainly not an easy task to present a story with such loops. The basic premise remains the same, but the director has the challenge of depicting the same scenario over and over, without making the audience bored of the same. Today, on Repeat Day, we’ve got a bunch of movies with time loops, for you to celebrate the day with.


Edge of Tomorrow (2014)

With an interesting explanation for the loop, this brilliantly crafted sci-fi thriller will keep you on the edge of your seat no matter how many times Tom Cruise’s character wakes up.

 

 

Groundhog Day (1993)

This Bill Murray-starrer is about a self-centered weatherman who is forced to relive the same day over and over again. This one has an emotional message to it, with a warm lesson to learn.

 

 

Timecrimes (2007)

Directed by Nahco Vigalondo and also starring in it, the film is about a man who is chased by an unidentified bandaged man, eventually using time loops to escape.
