Predestination: Movie Review and LitFlix!

Predestination comes out tomorrow in the US, but in keeping with this time travel movie, I’m giving you a review before the movie is out! Well, okay, maybe that’s because it’s an Australian film, and I caught it on our flight over there. And for our readers elsewhere, I have found that IMDb keeps release schedules, so here’s the international release schedule.¬†Looks like many countries have already gotten this film, with a few more still to come!

I have a couple of goals with this review. The first is to talk a bit about the film, trying to avoid spoilers, while still setting enough of the scene to pique your interest. I think that may be necessary because I don’t know how well the trailer does at that. This isn’t an action movie, but a thoughtful speculative story, where the characters and their personal stories are the interesting part. This is a gender-bending, time-traveling, science-fictional piece that avoids feeling like a Hollywood flick. By, you know, not being made in Hollywood.

The other thing I would like to do is sneak this in as a LitFlix for the year, before we actually have our 2015 list together for you! The film is based on the 1959 short story¬†All You Zombies by Robert A. Heinlein. It’s a short short story, but it was amazing to see how they turned it into a film! So I’ll talk about that too, but I’ll still try to keep away from spoilers. I recommend this movie and hope that you get a chance to see it, whether on the big screen or at home!
