Closed Timelike Curves vs Time Loops?

  • #1

Main Question or Discussion Point

What's the difference between Closed Timelike Curves seen in physics and the time loops in movies where a character relives a period of time over and over, but retains memories? I'm just curious about this stuff.

Dale's answer is best.

I'd add that there is no science - or even logic - in the time travel of almost all shows and movies. The (psuedo)science is simply tortured into a format that makes for a g̶o̶o̶d̶ plot.
