What are your favorite time loop movies (or to a lesser degree books or TV)?



DISHONORABLE MENTION (SPOILERS FOR The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya anime):

The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya's Endless Eight - eight episode arc.
Quote:
Midway through the anime's second season, Haruhi Suzumiya gets unknowingly trapped with the SOS Brigade in an unbreakable time loop that forces them to repeatedly experience the best week of summer 15,532 times. The loop only gets broken when Kyon remembers to do his math homework and deduces that all Haruhi wanted is to spend as much time as possible with her friends.

The Endless Eight story arc is still viewed as one of anime's most hated plotting devices, despite the anime's relatable message about the follies of nostalgic escapism, how it fleshes out everyone's characters, and lays the groundwork for the series' emotional finale, The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya. However, it's easier to appreciate such a big stylistic swing with the benefit of hindsight. The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya's most notorious eight episodes have gradually been reevaluated and found fans almost 20 years later.

@tsarstepan,
Dark, a German TV production.

It's absolutely fantastic.

@izzythepush,
I don't remember that having a time loop arc. I know it's a time travel series. But then again, I kind of stopped watching and never gotten around to season 3. Not because I didn't like it. I absolutely love the two seasons I watched.

So no spoilers on season 3, please.

Somewhere in Time (1980).

Christopher Reeve and Jane Seymour have never looked better or been more romantic on screen.

I really enjoyed The Time Traveler's Wife.

I did not see the movie, but I did watch the 6 part series on TV.

It was quite good.
