Moon : Plot Explained

Our content has moved.
Redirecting .... Please wait... Yes, the name of the movie is Moon. It released in 2009 starring Sam Rockwell as the lonesome astronaut on the Moon. Kevin Spacey plays the voice of the robot GERTY on the Moon station, yeah, not one of the finest opportunities he picked up on. Remember the time Kevin Spacey decided to be Lex Luthor and his evil super villain plan was to sell land? This one is still better.
While the movie starts off nice and quick. It is a slow movie and given you bear with the speed of the movie, the ending revelation is not all that great. It’s more meh. Sam Rockwell plays Sam the astronaut who works on the Moon. He is on a 3 year work assignment. This story takes place in the year 2035 where the Lunar Industries has found an answer to Earth’s energy crises on the Moon. The idea is to have a person on the moon rotated every 3 years, harvest this alternate helium-3 energy and send it back to earth in batches.

Sam (Sam1) has 2 weeks of time left. He’s all excited to go back home. He starts hallucinating and ends up crashing his rover. I’ll cut straight to the chase. Lunar Industries is basically evil and instead of training more astronauts and sending one over every 3 months, they simply have a cloning unit on the Moon. The original Sam is never seen in the movie. The guy who wrecks the rover faints and is in the rover. Looks like the life span of a clone is around 3 years, which is why they are made to believe that they are on a 3 year mission to the Moon. Once they are done, they are told that they will be sent into hibernation and back to Earth. Instead, they are simply incinerated and gotten rid of. When Sam’s rover crashes, he’s presumed dead and GERTY revives the next Sam (Sam2). All of the clones are activated and told that they have just been in an accident. They are then told that they have just begun their 3 year mission. Sam2 is told the same thing.

We the audience, are made to confuse Sam1 with Sam2. Sam1 is still in the rover and is going to complete 3 years of service. Sam2 is told that there are some rescuers coming and Sam2 has to stay indoors. Sam2 doesn’t know about Sam1 but still suspects something is off. He heads out and finds Sam1’s rover and subsequently Sam1 and brings him back to the station. Here’s where we are confused as to why there are two Sams and which one is the clone. They are both clones. Sam1 is now falling apart because his 3 years is coming to a close. The clones are told that no live signal can reach the moon and only recordings sent by his family can be watched. However, Sam2 over hears GERTY having a live conversation so he smells something fishy.

The two Sams work together to find why they can’t get any signal out. They locate a jammer tower that stops all out bound signal. Sam1 drives past this point to call home. He finds out that his baby daughter is actually 15 years old and his wife has died. GERTY shows videos of earlier Sams who are asked to go into the “hibernation” chamber and incinerated instead. The two Sams find a hidden chamber with racks of sleeping clones. The “rescue” team on the way is also going to ensure both clones are dead if they are caught together. Sam2 wants Sam1 to escape to Earth on the pod, Sam1 is far too close to dying so he asks Sam2 to escape instead.

Sam2 puts Sam1 in the rover so that the “rescue” team doesn’t suspect anything. GERTY helps out, because he’s a good robot, with a good heart. GERTY asks for Sam2 to reset him so that whoever goes through the logs will not find the sneaky sneaky that they have been up to. GERTY prepares the next clone Sam3 while Sam2 escapes. Sam1 stays alive long enough to watch Sam2’s pod escape to Earth. As the pod enters Earth, we are told that Sam2 wreaks havoc. He discloses about the clone program and how Lunar Industries is actually a Loony Industry to come up with a plot. Effectively looks like the company is down and out. What they don’t mention in the movie is Sam2 would have 3 years to live on Earth after which he will puke blood, loose his teeth, keel over and die. So much for a happy ending. Well, meh.

Jupiter Ascending : Plot Review

Our content has moved.
Redirecting .... Please wait...
This film is brought to you by the same awesome creators who gave us The Matrix. However the same creators also gave us The Matrix Revolutions and Speed Racer. Perhaps the luck that the name "The Wachowski Brothers" brought was a little better than "The Wachowskis". When the film came out, I headed to the theatre with a lot of hope and aspiration. I knew it was too much for the Wachowskis to get back into form like they did when they were once brothers. But I still hoped for something half as good - in spite of the fact that the lead actors are Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis and this could simply become a chick flick real quick. It is not out-right shit. No, really, it's not. The concept: As usual, Earth and the humans on Earth are basically reduced to nothingness, like we deserve to be. Humans, as a species, are shown to be like a gazillion years old in this movie. Earth is just one amongst the many planets that is used as a harvesting ground to seed human life. Once human life reaches a particular stage in its evolution, they simply kill all of them. Yep, kill. A 100 humans need to be used to create one vile of the youth serum. This may not be a super brilliant plot, but it's not half bad. This is where the "not out-right shit" part stops. The execution: In the intergalactic human race, there are three siblings. These three are the two sons and one daughter of the queen. The queen who is dead. The queen who has left them with a fortune. The queen who may be reborn as Mila Kunis. Mila Kunis has a full DNA alignment with the queen. The queen has written in her will that she will inherit back what she has written out to her kids. This includes Earth. This is all just vague and messed up. Let's talk about the siblings. The eldest sibling, Balem, the evilest of them, sounds like Lord Voldemort has been chewing tobacco, the same tobacco, for 23,300 years. By will, he is the rightful heir to Earth. Seems to be a nice and expensive planet. The younger brother, is less evil and more gay, Titus. He however fancies women in zero gravity. May be it's the zero gravity, may be it's not, but wouldn't it take too much time to ... forget it, just remember gay. The sister, the good person, Kalique. She has this smile that would suggest "I would like to make a small slit in your throat, put a straw in it and sip out your heart through it". But she is actually the only nice person amongst the siblings. She doesn't want the Earth to herself. She seems to be already very joyful about something, may be a vibrator, can't say, they don't show. Emma Stone, sorry, Mila Kunis - she is the queen who is reborn (Of course she is simply a DNA realignment). She is another person all together. When she was young and still a half cooked embryo in her mother's body, her father is killed because he wouldn't part with his telescope. Apparently some Russian thieves. What kind of Russian thieves, with guns, ransack a middle class astronomer for his average-ass telescope? They had the money to get guns and are yet stealing from.. never mind. Moving on. Mila grows up to be the adorable girl that she grows up to be in every movie she's been in. What is the add-on? She cleans toilets in this movie with her aunt and mother. Little does she know she's the queen of the Earth. Mila wants a telescope because she's also some sort of a failure scientist who cleans toilets. The telescope costs a bomb so her loving cousin suggests that she should sell her "eggs" to make some money for him. See, this is what we call family love and care. She's attacked by the minions of Balem, the cancer-throat sibling, when she's out to hand over her eggs. Wait, before this, there is an earlier attack by the minions. The minions mistake her six-pack-abs friend to be Mila and attack her instead. Mila sees this and they wipe her memory of it. Mila, however, before getting her memory wiped, takes a photo of the minions mal-handling her friend in underwear. Underwear is the key here. The mal-handling scene has to be inspired by some Japanese Hentai movie, it must. It's lovely how two girls just strip to their bare necessities and have an everyday conversation. Yes, now Mila gets attacked in another Japanese Hentai inspired fashion. Now enters the hero. Channing Tatum. Channing has already shown to be awesome in an earlier opening scene. He has boots that he uses to skate around in thin air. I think this is enough for the guys. They can stop following the movie and just dream about the boots. Channing, the splice between wolf and human military, saves Mila. Explains to her what's going on. He takes her to Sean Bean, his old friend, who hates his guts for having him lose his career to save Channing. Channing, apparently bites off some guys throat, yeah such randomness does exist in this movie. The bees of his place start praying to Mila and they all acknowledge Mila to be the queen. Yeah, even more randomness. Right after this, Mila is kidnapped and taken to Kalique, the joker-smiled cosmic human sibling. Kalique explains further how the queen was her mother some many-thousand years ago. Kalique is also 19004 years old. Everyone is old, okay? Kalique then strips and takes her bath straight out of a beauty commercial and comes back nice, wet and hot. Just that the bath was made up of a hundred dead humans. Kalique is now much younger, continues to have the smile that would let the audience prep for a scene where she rips out Mila's insides and eats it with her morning coffee. But Kalique is actually a good person, who enjoys a 100 dead human bath occasionally, she just warns how important Earth is in terms of the wealth of time. Earth is ripe for harvesting. Mila has been manhandled by alien minions, saved by a half-wolf-man-with-flying-boots-with-the-history-of-biting-off-throats, prayed to by bees, kidnapped by aliens, told that she's the queen reborn, sees an old naked woman turn firm. How would a human typically react having gone through all of this in a single day? Flip out, right? Curl up and scream, faint a couple of times, worry about your family looking for your missing ass, etc. Mila's character, however, doesn't give a damn about all that petty Earth stuff. What she wants is to get it on with Channing. Yeah in all of this, the fine queen wants to get down and dirty with her saviour while he refers to her as "your majesty". Ooh yeah, you go girl - say my name! Very bondage queen of you, your majesty. Oh yeah, here's a little puppy love for ya. Next stop, gay sibling who Channing works for, is met. He tells Mila about how girl like he can be and that they can have a whooping good lesbian time if they got married. On the side he can save Earth from his elder screeching brother. Of course, he's lying about the lesbian action and also about saving Earth. He wants to *muhuhahahaha* kill Mila and take Earth for himself... Dr.Evil would be so proud. He also has Channing thrown out into the void but gets rescued by the Heart Of Gold apparently, right on time. Intergalactic marriages, which are a million years old, are apparently Earth style, Western style - "I DO" weddings, which have been popular for a few millennia. It even comes with tattoos in place of the wedding rings. Wait, weren't humans shown to be harvested like bees for honey? Yet the intergalactic wedding is how it is done in America. Hey, also, aren't the cosmic humans speaking in English? Oh yeah right, English (one of the last few languages to pop up on Earth, not) is the language of the million year old cosmic humans. . It is safest to assume that in this movie, Earth is made of up only USA, yay! Channing, stops the wedding, saves Mila. Mila finally has had it and wants to go home. Her family is now kidnapped by the giant lizard henchmen of the sibling who has just been screaming in a rock concert, Balem. Mila is taken to Balem. Balem wants Earth. Mila wants sex. Mila can choose between her family and rest of Earth. She chooses Earth. Fight ensues, everyone is fighting everyone. Mila kisses Channing, wants to make out, but bad guys on their tail, Channing saves the day, all the bad guys are killed, good guys saved, memories of Earthlings reset. Mila continues to own Earth, whatever the heck that means. Channing gets his wings back, he could already fly with boots but hey who's paying attention anyways yeah? They play in the skies. And. Close. Oh, and Sean Bean doesn't die. Messed up right?

Primer : Plot Explained

Our content has moved.
Redirecting .... Please wait... By popular demand we have decided to do a plot explanation of the movie - Primer.
Thanks for writing in everyone!

This is going to be a fully textual explanation because the diagrammatic representation of the Timeline will need to be in 3 dimensions and a page is well, 2 dimensional.
(Either that or we got lazy to draw, we did do a small one though)

The insignificant bits:
The movie starts off with 4 friends who work on side projects apart from their day jobs.
Aaron, Abe, Robert, and Phillip are the 4 people. Ignore Robert and Phillip, they will go away soon. We care only for Aaron and Abe and the multiple instances of them in time we will try and follow.

Story gets going:
After a fall out, Abe and Aaron decide to team up on an invention that aims at reducing the gravitational effects on objects. In effect, reduce the weight of objects. However, things don’t go according to what they envision. 

Abe meets Aaron on a park bench one morning and explains to Aaron that if he skips work, Abe will show Aaron the most important thing that any living organism has ever witnessed. Abe shows Aaron the object that has been in the machine for mere days but has protein build up that happens over many years. Abe gets Aaron to put a watch in the machine to see the time lapsed for the watch. Abe wants Aaron to confirm the findings.

They basically end up creating a device that sends the object put inside it back and forth through time. They also notice that the objects tend to make around 1300 trips back and forth. The explanation to this is not given attention to, something about probabilities that lead to exits from the time loop only after a minimum of 1300 loops. Abe then explains the A->B loop.

Explanation of A -> B that is drawn on paper:
When the machine is turned on for a period of time, say 1 min, the object put inside it after 1 min starts going back and forth in time. If the machine was started at 12:00PM and the object is put inside at 12:01, the object travels back to 12:00PM and then back to 12:01PM. It keeps looping in this manner about 1300 times before it moves forward past the 12:01PM time. When the object is taken out soon after 12:01, it has already spent over 1300 min inside the machine.

12:00PM is the A end.
12:01PM is the B end.

So the watch thrown in at the A end and Taken out on the B end, travels a total number of trips from A to B to A to B to A …. and finally to B. The total is odd.
If the watch is thrown in at the B end, it travels a total number of trips from B to A to B to A … and finally to B. The total is even.

Moving On:
Abe tells Aaron how the machine seems to work, also adds that if the object was smart, it could enter at the B end and calculate an exit at the A end. This means that the “smart object” can travel back in time. Smart object being - a human being. Abe proceeds to take Aaron to a location and tells him what Aaron was going to witness was not a prank or a practical joke of any kind. Abe hands Arron a pair of binoculars and Arron sees another Abe walking in towards the building with an oxygen tank. Basically showing Aaron that the Abe has already traveled through time.

Explanation of the time travel:
Classically, we are used to instant time travel. Person at time t1 just gets transported instantly to time t2. That is not how time travel works in this movie. To travel back in time here’s what one has to do:

1) Start the machine at a time t1 (the A end), say 12:00PM
2) Wait for the machine to run, say 6hrs. Buy an oxygen tank.
3) Get into the machine after letting it run for 6hrs, this will be time t2 (the B end)
4) Be in the machine for 6hrs, while in the machine you are travelling back in time. You are travelling back at the rate of 1 min per min of your watch. So set your watch’s timer to 6hrs.
5) Use the oxygen tank to help you breathe for 6hrs in the box.
6) When the timer runs down to zero, it’s time to exit the box. When you exit the box, you will exit back at the A end, which is time t1, which is 12:00PM.
Unlike other time travel movies, you cannot travel to a point before the machine was turned on. The time travel window is limited to when the machine was turned on.

What’s the deal with the 15min timer on the machine?
Imagine you exit at the A end at time t1 which is 12:00PM in the above scenario (step 6). You will run into your past self who would be turning on the machine (step 1).
Running into your past self is not a good idea so you set a timer of 15min on the machine. This ensures that step 1 will happen 15min after you turn on the timer. This gives you enough time to get out of the area and your future self will not run into you.

Note: if you happen to exit the box before reaching the A end, then the chances of your brain getting fried is high. We’ll get back to this later.

Moving on:
Aaron is mind-blown, realizes that the Abe he’s been with all day is an Abe from 6hrs into the future. The Abe he sees using the binoculars is the Abe from the present timeline. Aaron asks Abe what he did prior to entering the machine at the B end. Abe explains that after starting the timer, he checked-in to a hotel and disconnected from the world, no phones, no TV, no nothing. After 6hrs, he went back to the machine and got in.

Now we start counting timelines, every time someone travels back in time, it leads to a new timeline. The events in a timeline may not be different from another but it’s a new timeline nevertheless.

Timeline 1:
Abe starts the machine, drives off in his car and checks into a hotel. Aaron is undisturbed so ends up going to work (They talk about this, but is not shown in the movie). Abe checks for stock prices and returns to the storage facility 6hrs later and enters the machine at the B end.

Timeline 2:
Abe exits the box at the A end, is without a car and takes a taxi and stops Aaron from going to work, the two of them watch the Abe from Timeline 1 entering the storage facility using binoculars.

Aaron now wants to do exactly what Abe has done. They work on another box for Aaron and the next travel is set up - perhaps the next day. Both Aaron and Abe go to the storage facility, start the timer and head to the hotel room. They check-in and stay there. They look into stock prices so that when they go back in time, they can trade on the right stocks to make money. They return 6 hours later to the storage facility and get into their boxes at the B end. 

Timeline 3:
Abe and Aaron exit back in the morning. Aaron exits a little soon so he gets a zap. They go back and start filling in the life of Aaron and Abe who are in the hotel room. They know which stocks to buy and they buy. 

Later another day, in the evening, Aaron and Abe are talking about what they want from their lives. Aaron mentions how he would go meet his boss, punch him in the face and then go back and tell himself to not punch the boss. That way, no one would get hurt, the incident wouldn't happen but he would get to feel how it is to punch his boss. Abe tells Aaron that he can NOT do that, no changing history; it would lead to a paradox. Aaron’s wife also asks if Aaron called the pest control she feels there are rats in the attic. We’ll come back to the rats in the attic.

They go through their following days doing the time travel thing; we’ll ignore those timelines that they end up creating, nothing major there. They continue to make money off stocks. They also decide to not tell the other two friends Robert and Phillip. So you can’t continue to fully ignore Robert, Phillip can be ignored. On one of the days Aaron bleeds from his ears, it’s perhaps from all the time travelling.

On the night that Abe and Aaron do their first time travel, Robert throws a birthday party and Rachel’s ex-boyfriend walks in with a shotgun over an argument that they are having. Aaron intercepts Rachel’s boyfriend and saves the day. One morning Robert tells this to Abe. Abe is angry with Aaron for putting his life on the line without caring for his wife and kid. Abe mentions that Rachel is stupid to get into those scenarios. Aaron explains how the whole time travel was fresh in his head and he was not going to let Rachel’s ex scare people like that.

They continue time travelling the next day. They start the timer and head to the hotel room. When they are in the hotel room, Aaron gets a call because he forgets to switch off his mobile phone. He takes the call. Talks to his wife and hangs up. They get to the machine and enter the B end.

Timeline 4 (ignoring the multiple other times they may have traveled back, there is nothing eventful and the timelines are not altered from the original by much):

When they travel back to the start of the day, Aaron’s phone rings as it’s still in his pocket. Aaron doesn’t pick and this is a cause for worry, breaking the symmetry. They check to see if each other is feeling fine.

Explanation for the mobile phone bit:
On that day, let’s say Aaron and Abe start the timer at 11:45AM for 15min and leave to the hotel. At 12:00PM, the machine starts up. When in the room, say at about 2:00PM, Aaron gets a phone call. He picks it up. At 6:00PM, Aaron and Abe get into their machines and travel back in time to 12:00PM. Now, when they reach the 2:00PM time, Aaron’s (who’s traveled back) phone rings. 

The concept of phone towers is that when a call is made to a phone number, a grid wise search for that phone is done, the first grid that finds the phone, rings the phone. Since the Aaron on the street has received the call, Aaron in the hotel room, would not have received this call, hence that talk with his wife wouldn't have happened. That is the break in symmetry. But the call is not a very important one and hence doesn’t alter the timeline drastically.

Moving on:
That night, Aaron and Abe are woken up by a bunch of brats whacking cars with sticks setting off car alarms all over the road. They both stand in the kitchen and talk. Abe suggests an idea to mess around with a paradox. Abe and Aaron can leave right now to Aaron’s boss’ house, punch him in the face. Then get in to their boxes and travel back to the point in the night when the kids are whacking the cars. They scare the kids away. This will ensure that they are not woken up, they never have the conversation they are having, they would continue to wake up in the morning and prep the box and travel the usual 6 hrs. This action however would leave two sets of Aarons and Abes in the next timeline. But they don’t talk about that, the paradox is what they want to mess with. Aaron asks Abe how they are to travel back to this point as the machine is not on. Abe admits that he did leave the machine running at 5:00PM. So the two of them set off to experiment.

On way to the storage facility, they notice Rachel’s dad in a car sitting and just staring away. Aaron mentions that earlier in the day, her dad was all clean shaven, but this one in the car had a 3 day stubble. This means that the guy in the car has traveled back to this timeline. They call Rachel’s dad’s home number and he comes on the phone. This confirms that the guy in the car is from a future time. They chase him down, and Rachel’s dad from the future eventually faints. They take him home and stash him in the guest bedroom. Abe and Aaron go to the facility to see if the machines are fine, and they are. They start questioning each other if they ever planned on telling Rachel’s dad about the time machines. They both deny of having any such thought. They think of a hypothetical situation where there is an emergency, but they can’t point a finger to anything. The permutations were endless. It looked like he exited the box too quick and that ended up zapping his brain like we had mentioned before.

Rachel’s dad-from-the-future was in coma and vegetative. Abe worries about what he may have changed. For instance, if they didn’t see him sitting in the car, they would have been at the boss’ house punching him in the face. But instead they are at home talking about the comatose dad. Aaron feels nothing much could have changed. No further explanation is given to how Rachel’s dad may have used the time machine. The point of focus is that, the timelines are being terribly messed around with and that scares the daylights out of Abe.

Abe decides that the consequences of this time travel is just too dangerous. He tells Aaron about another machine which Abe has left running from before his very first time travel. This is referred to as the Failsafe. Abe's Failsafe has been running from the very beginning. Abe plans on inducing a long-ass sleep and going back all the way to the beginning and stopping himself from ever travelling through time. That way everything would go back to being how they were supposed to be and will revert to Timeline 1. No time travel, no problems.

Timeline ???
Abe uses the Failsafe and goes back to Timeline 1 or at least he thinks he is. He drugs the original Abe from the timeline in his sleep. This ensures that his original self from the timeline doesn't travel through time. After that, Abe-from-the-Failsafe lands up on the park bench to meet Aaron. His plan is to have a general conversation with Aaron and let him go to work. That way neither Aaron or Abe from the original timeline do their first time travel and everything will be undone. But the long-ass time-travel in the Failsafe has made Abe weak. What he also notices is that Aaron continues to have the same conversation they have in Timeline 2 regardless of what Abe says. As Abe falls to the ground, it is revealed that Aaron on the bench is simply following a recorded conversation that they had from Timeline 2. This means that Aaron is also from the future and is simply trying to re-act a conversation already had between him and Abe. Therefore this is not Timeline 1 or Timeline 2, this is some sort of an altered Timeline ???. We’ll get back to which timeline this is.

After Abe-from-the-Failsafe wakes up, he wants to know how this has happened. Aaron explains how he noticed the storage facility manifest having two rooms under the name of Abe. How Aaron already found the Failsafe machine. How Aaron realized that this was the "re-set everything" box. How Aaron didn't like this.

Timeline 1.1
Aaron decides to travel back in time using the Failsafe box (before Abe) right to the beginning. However, he takes with him collapsible version of the box with him back to the beginning. Taking back collapsible boxes back also means that he can end up doing more rounds of time travel in the same time window. If there was only one box, it can only be used by one person between the A end and the B end. This is because between the A and the B end, the machine has the person in it and can’t be switched off; it can kill the person inside, the person is inside is yourself, you don't wanna kill yourself. Taking a box every trip back will give the ability to setup another machine once you exit. This gives the ability to do another trip back using the extra box.

Aaron, after using the Failsafe, drugs the Aaron of the original timeline (drugs the milk carton). This drugged Aaron is the person who is supposed to be on the park bench. But instead, he’s drugged and thrown in the attic. Remember the rats in the attic? That would be this Aaron, the first and original Aaron. Aaron-from-the-Failsafe now replaces Aaron-in-the-attic on the park bench (we never see this in the movie, it is inferred). He also decides to record all the conversations of the day. Important thing to note here is that this Aaron-from-the-Failsafe is the one narrating the story. He says “And that's where I would have entered the story. Or exited, depending on your reference”.

Timeline 1.2
Aaron-from-the-Failsafe, the narrator Aaron, uses the extra box to travel back again to the start of the day. Aaron-from-the-extra-box tries to take down Aaron-from-the-Failsafe (who has drugged the original Aaron). Aaron-from-the-extra-box has traveled a lot in time and is tired and is unable to subdue Aaron-from-the-Failsafe. However Aaron-from-the-Failsafe and Arron-from-the-extra-box talk it out. Aaron-from-the-extra-box has already lived the day and has recorded the events of the day, this is what Aaron-from-the-Failsafe was planning to do (and he does that in Timeline 1.1). Aaron-from-the-Failsafe understands that Aaron-from-the-extra-box has accomplished more in their common goal, hence Arron-from-the-Failsafe leaves.

Aaron-from-the-extra-box now encounters Abe-from-the-Failsafe while on the park bench, listening to the conversation that should have happened as per Timeline 1.1. But Abe faints instead. Timeline ??? from above is basically Timeline 1.2 and is what can be seen in the movie. And that is why we hear a recording of the dialogues from the ear piece. The recording is from Timeline 1.1.

What is Abe doing in Timeline 1.2?
Why hasn’t Abe gone back all the way to the beginning? After all he did use the Failsafe.
Aaron who uses the Failsafe before Abe decides he’s going back to the start. After Aaron uses the Failsafe, he also ensures he puts in a duplicate Failsafe in place of the original Failsafe. Let’s call the original Failsafe as Abe’s Failsafe. This is replaced with Aaron’s Failsafe. While Abe’s Failsafe is running all the way from the beginning, before any of the time travelling, Aaron’s Failsafe is running from a few hours after Abe’s Failsafe. These few hours is given so that Abe won’t notice that the machines have been switched. The few hours' gap is also enough for Aaron to drug his past-self and get to the park bench and pretend. 
Abe is not aware of this switch that Aaron has done. Abe is not aware that Aaron has used Abe’s Failsafe either. Abe thinks he is using Abe’s Failsafe but ends up using Aaron’s Failsafe instead. Abe ends up arriving a few hours after Aaron. By then, Aaron has already created Timeline 1.1 followed by a Timeline 1.2 - where he’s on the bench listening to the conversation over earphones.

In Timeline 1.2 there are 3 Aarons
1) The original Aaron from the timeline who is drugged and dumped in the attic.
2) Aaron-from-the-Failsafe who decides to go away, the narrator.
3) Aaron-from-the-extra-box who is on the park bench listening to conversations on the earphones.

In Timeline 1.2 there are 2 Abes
1) The original Abe from the timeline who is drugged and dumped in a bathroom.
2) The Abe-from-the-Failsafe who comes to the park and faints.

Abe-from-the-Failsafe comes back to consciousness and Aaron-from-the-extra-box explains how he discovered the Failsafe and did the switcheroo (basically everything that is described above). He also gives Abe-from-the-Failsafe the recording and goes down to the basketball court to talk to Will.

Will's cousin is Rachel’s boyfriend. According to the original timeline, Aaron ends up inviting Will and his cousin to Robert’s party. So Aaron-from-the-extra-box invites Will as per the original events, the only change is that he misses shooting the basket which changes the conversation a little but doesn’t change the outcome.

Aaron-from-the-extra-box also convinces Abe-from-the-Failsafe why he needs to invite Rachel to the party. Abe-from-the-Failsafe finally agrees and calls Rachel to Robert’s birthday party.

Here is an unknown element. Aaron-from-the-extra-box may have gone back over and over to the start of the day to relive the day, to ensure that the events in the party go as planned. Which also means that more and more Aarons are hanging around in this timeline – no mentioned is made of what all the Aarons are up to.  Finally, the scene in the movie shows an Aaron with Abe from the Failsafe at the party working to perfection. How many times has Aaron-from-the-extra-box gone back? Three? Four? Twenty? No idea. However, in the movie we see the party scene with a Final Aaron. We’ll call him Aaron-the-Final.

At the party, they open the car and sabotage the ex’s shotgun by removing the bullets. When the moment of conflict happens, Aaron-the-Final springs to the gunman (the ex) and saves the day. 

The next scene is at the airport. Aaron-the-Final and Abe-from-the-Failsafe are talking about what happens next. Aaron-the-Final says they (Aaron-the-Final and Abe-from-the-Failsafe) don’t belong to the timeline they are in and they should just flick the passports of the original Abe and Aaron and just leave to another part of the world where no one knows them. Aaron-the-Final also suggests that they can make a copy of his wife and kid and leave with them.

Abe-from-the-Failsafe is annoyed with Aaron-the-Final and asks him to leave and never come back. Abe-from-the-Failsafe plans to sabotage the efforts of the original Abe and Aaron in creating and using the time machine. Abe-from-the-Failsafe hopes that the original Abe and Aaron will give up and move on to other projects. Aaron the Final leaves.

Timeline Unknown:
The end of the movie shows an Aaron in a place building a gigantic version of the machine. We can only assume that this is second Aaron from Timeline 1.2, the narrator, the Aaron-from-the-Failsafe. It is left open-ended, there is no closure given to the multiple Aarons and Abes that have been spawned. While some of them might seize to exist because of an alterations in the timeline, others can cause further mess-ups to happen creating even more complex timelines. We don’t know, we never will.
