    This is just dumb.

    Quote from the article:

    "Apparently, the General Bureau of Radio, Film and Television in China is unfamiliar with the definition of fiction."

    That's just silly.

    The Chinese government must have found a method for time travel and doesn't want the public to find out the truth by drawing references to these movies. [​IMG]

    That would be stupid because having Time Travel Fiction will keep the trail cold for a while like with most science fiction in America. This is all censorship remember when China is concerned everything good is banned save for flashcarts.

    It's a giant conspiracy to keep the western world from knowing about their Flux Capacitor.

    That's bull****. I know of at least six movies published in China that document true stories of time travel.

    Disrespectful to history? More like they don't want people to find out what they're up to.

    Wow, and Time based movies are usually the best type because it works your brain so much.

    A shame they can no longer view Back to the Future though as Devin said.

    China is still stuck in the past, they still haven't realized that bionic zombie marshmallows wielding beam swords are unable to travel to our time to take over the world. Relax, China, relax.

    Then there's that one guy who flew through some time warp the Bermuda Triangle in the 70's and ended up 30 minutes in the future.

    In response to this article I hereby depart on a road trip around China. I'll be driving a DeLorian with glowing blue lines down the side, with a TARDIS strapped to the roof, dressed as a caveman, flicking the V's at everyone with a cybernetic hand.

    They'll arrest you, and try to send you back to the time of the cavemen with their time machine that you just KNOW they have, because why else would they ban Time Travel movies?
