Time After Time (1979, Nicholas Meyer)
I actually thought I had seen this film before but I think I was getting it confused with Jack's Back (1988). This film has a pretty good reputation for being a fun adventure where H.G. Wells (Malcolm McDowell) pursues Jack the Ripper (David Warner) to the 20th Century when the serial murderer uses the future writer's time machine to escape his time period. I usually don't like McDowell but he is solid here and the whole film is well acted and makes great used of the fish out of water premise. Unfortunately it lacks any kind of intensity and feels rather ho hum for a lot of the running time.
Tried to Watch Exotica (1994) & Thank You for Smoking (2005), but could not get into either, I may give the later a chance later.
