Flickchart Matchup of the Day
Today is the amazing Mary Steenburgen’s birthday, so let’s celebrate with two of her best movies. Both flicks are wonderful time travel movies that feature Steenburgen as the girl who just doesn’t fit into her times. In Time After Time, she’s too old-fashioned for the late 1970’s and in BTTF3; she’s too modern for the 1880’s.
Here’s what Flickcharters think:
My Verdict: I’m a sucker for sci-fi movies with a love story, so each falls right in my wheelhouse, but Time After Time’s unique blend of H.G. Wells and Jack the Ripper gives it the ever so slight edge.
