Top Five Time Travel Movies

  • Jul 30, 2010
1
DVD set front
I have the whole set and never tire of seeing them. I can't remember too many gizmos from films but I think everyone remembers the flux capacitor.
2
The Terminator
Went into this film with low expectations especially after having seen Conan. I was blown away by this film. Made Arnold a star!. I remember when the android was being questioned about a dead cat and he searched his computer data base for a suitable cuss to yell at the neighbor.
See the full review, "Possibly the Best Action/SciFi Film Ever!".

Star Trek IV - The Voyage Home
To me this was the best of the Star Trek films with the original cast. Saving the whales and Checkov asking where the wissles are stored, Scotty trying to talk into the computer mouse. Priceless scenes.
4
The Time Traveler's Wife
Excellent adaptation of the Niffenger novel to film. Eric Bana and Rachel McAdams were well cast. Henry and Clare had one of the most unusual relationships in the history of film.

5
Peggy Sue Got Married
Being able to go back in time and laugh at your father for buying a DeSoto. Telling your high school teacher that you will never use anything he is teaching in your entire life and that you know this through experience. Giving someone one of the biggest Beatle songs of all time for his own and he changes the words to try to improve upon it making the song sound ridiculous. This movie is full of things we would love to do if we could go back in time.

You should add (or, I would add): 12 Monkeys, La Jetee (the brilliant French short film that 12 Monkeys is loosely based on), Time Crimes (or, Cronocrimenes), Primer, and, of course, Hot Tub Time Machine.

I have to see 12 Monkeys since everyone here seems to like it. I have only seen Hot Tub Time Machine and though it was a funny movie, I couldn't put it up with the best of all time.

I was joking about Hot Tub Time Machine - but completely serious about the others. Primer and Time Crimes especially are brilliant explorations of the paradoxes of time travel.
