"This film proves that you don't need a $100 million dollar budget if you have imagination and a good story!"
The year is 1991...
College professor Nick Miller has done it! He's become the world's first time traveller! And he managed to accomplish this breakthrough with just a modest computer and a Cessna ... but more importantly with a whole lot of ingenuity. Soon Nick sells his invention to a local company, however, all is not well for long. Mismanagement and corporate greed leads to a dystopian future that Nick must strive to correct while trying to dodge the forces of evil and save the love of his life.
Time Chasers (AKA Tangents) is a great example of how a lot of courage and determination can get a movie made despite the lack of a lot resources. It was popularized on the TV show MST3K in the late 90's but despite being fodder for the crew of the Satellite of Love it still stands today as a success and a long lived cult hit.
One of the Soulless Minions, Josh, goes solo on this commentary for a fond look back and this time travel adventure that makes the most of its low budget.
