"Fiction is the purest art. Commercial fiction is the butter, the darkest chocolate, and the finest malt. That's why we are so addicted to it."--Angie Brooksby-Arcangioli
I liked his comments on time travel. Time travel is one of the things I dislike most about Heroes. I loved Primer. I thought it was a very well thought out movie and the ending was shockingly good. One of those that you have to see many times. I like that he said it should be a major plot device. I am still no fan of time travel in most cases.
This is your future self: The keys to the island are under the pillow.[loved the pictures from Star Trek, heheheh]
I think also of The Time Traveler's Wife. In that story, the time travel was certainly not a "get out of jail free" card. It was a major obstacle to the protagonists' happiness.
OK-Time to let my geek flag fly. I certainly do loves me some Doctor Who, an entire series based on the conceit of time travel. The program is occasionally brilliant (like the episode Blink) and occasionally falls flat on its face (with a whispered 'Put the sonic screw driver in Amy's coat pocket.')
