Saw an interesting movie

Filed under: My Thoughts — Suramya @ 1:15 AM

Saw an interesting movie yesterday called Slipstream. Its about this guy who has a timetravel device that lets him go back in time by 10 mins. The movie wasn’t that great (The acting was pathetic) but one of the idea’s in the movie was interesting.

You know how most time travel movies and books talk about going back in time and taking over the world… this guy hits on a cooler idea that doesn’t harm anyone. He decides to cash his entire paycheck and take a spin back through time and then cash it again, and again and again.

Think about it, you keep the money you have and then go back and cash the same check again. The only difference is that since you still have the money from the first time you get double the amount for the same check. Cool eh. The only thing tricky is that all the bills in the second would probably have the same serial numbers as their counterparts in the first set so you have a set of bills that can’t exist and still do… If done enough times can this cause the world economy to collapse? Who knows… A pretty original idea though.

The movie could have been way better. The idea was great the picturization was pathetic.

Well this is all for now. Will write more later.
