Best Time Travel Movies of the '80s


The Top TenXW

1Back to the Future

By far the best time travel movie of all time - Ajkloth

2The Terminator
3The Philadelphia Experiment
4Flight of the NavigatorV1 Comment

Jack Deth is a kind of cop hunter in a future dystopic Los Angeles. Charles Band directed this film - Alexandr

6Peggy Sue Got Married

Peggy Sue Bodell faints at her high school reunion. When she wakes up, she finds herself in her own past, just before she finished school. - Alexandr

7Masters of the Universe

Yes, it wasn't superb but it's a guilty pleasure film. Dolph Lundgren and Courteney Cox did a good job - Alexandr

8The Final Countdown

A storm at sea transports a nuclear warship back in time from the 1980s to the 1940s - Alexandr

9Back to the Future Part II

My favorite part in the series. I love all these flying boards, high technologies etc - Alexandr


Fantastic story well told was one of my favourites at the time and hasn't really aged as it isn't to strong on effects

The Contenders

11Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure

How is this movie not in the top 10, or top 5 for that matter? It was made in 1989, so it fits the 80's requirement. They travel through time, so it meets that requirement. And it has the greatest historical humor and stupid teenager jokes out of any movie ever made, so it meets the best requirement too. Please vote to get this movie higher up. It's really funny.

12Field of Dreams
13Back to the Future Part IIIV1 Comment

Another underrated film. A warlock in the 17th century who has been sentenced to death for witch craft is transported to the 20th century, followed by a witch hunter who must stop the warlock finding the Grand Grimoire. - Alexandr
