Ishkur: The move is kind of tragic when you realize that he might have been stuck on that same day for well up to 10 years or more...Ramis speculated 10,000 years at one point but that would be more than enough time to get good at EVERYTHING, not just music and languages and ice sculptures and throwing cards into a hat...in addition to driving him so farking insane that he wouldn't be able to deal with real life when he got out. Could you imagine trying to handle unpredictable events in a linear temporal reality after being stuck in a predictable, closed-loop universe for so long?There was a scripted subplot where he would go to the library and read one page a day from a random book to keep track, and before the end he had read the entire library.
Ishkur: Nothing is fulfilling if it doesn't really matter and there's no real outcome. Things have to be predicated on other things to be meaningful, and in a world without this, everything devolves into an existentialist, nihilistic waste of time.
James F. Campbell: can imagine in that one day with no consequences whatsoever. For someone who has a lot of imagination, it opens up a lot of possibilities. Ever wanted to know what it's like to X? Do it. No consequences.
Decillion: The pace of the movie makes it feel like a few months. But the things he learns takes it into at least a couple of years. I can't handle the movie if I imagine any more than that. By year three there's no way he could avoid becoming an axe murderer for at least one day.
bingethinker: Ghastly: If we get 6 more weeks of winter it WILL be an early spring. God I hate winter. Loathe it with a passion. Come on Global Warming. Burn the rest of the world and make Canada a tropical paradise.THIS. There's a Canadian groundhog (Wiarton Willie), with a similar ridiculous ceremony, and I always wondered why. Most of us are getting 10-12 more weeks of winter whether the stupid little rodent sees his shadow or not!
