Who doesn’t love a good time travel movie? Not only are they fun to watch, they’re fun to discuss and dissect after the fact, evidenced by persistent online conversation about films like Primer, Looper, Back to the Future, and The Terminator. A new flow chart has been created that attempts to break down those films, and dozens others, into a very specific group of rules.

The black and white animation team who’ve made “Speedruns” of The Matrix and Back to the Future have now tackled one of, if not the most beloved films of all time: George Lucas’ Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.
