Time loop movie day
One of the Stargate episodes I watched this weekend involved a time loop. So I got to thininking that a time loop movie day would be fun. Groundhog Day, that Stargate episode, and the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode with the time loop. I also got suggestions of 12:01 and a particular Dr. Who episode. Dunno if I actually want to host a movie day, but anyone else can feel free to use this suggestion, since I think it would be fun.

And that episode of the X-Files, the one with the bank robbery.

I don't remember that one. A quick check says it's episode 6X15, "Monday", noted here for reference.

I've been saving _Window of Opportunity_ since, like, July, to play with my usual on February 2nd next year.

Well, queue did say the idea was up for grabs, so maybe you would want to host the time-loop movie day on Feb 2? Or we could do a "traveling" time-loop movie day--some shows/movies at one person's house, followed by others at someone else's, and interested folks either follow them around or just show up for the one's they are interested in. So, you could show Window of Opportunity and Groundhog Day, and someone else could show some of the other stuff before or after your showing.

Cool idea! I'd come, if the timing worked out.

There was also an old Twilight Zone episode like this,
where some aliens with the power to reverse time come
down and observe a murder. The episode plays the same
30 seconds or so over dozens of times, with minor
variations. (How one would go about looking up that
episode, and where one would get a copy, is left as an
exercise for the reader.)

Also, Run Lola Run / Lola Rennt, sort of.

Good idea. One would have to find something that fit the theme that was short enough to show at the beginning and end, for added effect.

I thought we'd have to watch the whole selection again, and again, and again...
