Best Time Travel Movies


The Top TenXW

1Back to the Future

The movie that started my love affair with the DeLorean. When you were a kid Marty was it, when you get older (I'm 34) you see that the Doc had it man. There is nothing anyone can say about this trilogy that hasn't been said before. All that's left are people's personal experiences with the trilogy. It changed my life - Johnnyt800

It's funny, fast-paced and educational. It states that you can change the past, if it will result in a better outcome. Plus is has a happy ending, unlike some other movies. A must-see for all time travel-lovers.

Time travel is achieved by means of a flux capacitor installed in a DeLorean DMC12 sports car. - Alexandr

2Back to the Future Part II

My favorite movie of all time! My second favorite: Back to the Future LOL. Reasons I prefer this sequel over the original:

The humor- I find this movie to be a lot funnier than the original! Sure, it doesn't have as many famous quotes as the original, but that's only because it's a sequel. To the hilarious relatives of the main characters (Marty's pathetic but hilarious son, Marty Jr. , Biff's psycho and idiotic grandson, Griff, etc. ) to the scene of Marty finding the almanac only to discover it's a girly mag ("Oooh la la! ") the movie never fails to make me laugh.

The Stakes: The stakes are so much higher in this film than in the first and third ones COMBINED. Instead of saving his family, or Doc Brown, Marty must save every person in all of Hill Valley from Biff's reign of terror.

The Sci Fi: This movies seems much more like a time travel/sci fi movie than the first one. The first one is more of a fish out of water rom com. This movie is definitely ...more

The first 2 are just masterpieces. Don't get me wrong, Part III was a great, GREAT movie, but just doesn't stand up to the originals.

I slightly do prefer part II to part I based on a split decision, though.

Adam Sandler is given a remote that lets him fast forward, pause, and rewind his life. - Alexandr

I would prefer frozen the time if I had someone like Kate Beckinsale. A ok film because of Kate Beckinsale, but Adam Sandler with his raspy voice and his coughing in this movie is annoying.

10Twilight Zone: The Movie

Big-screen adaptations of three classic episodes from the popular 1950s and 1960s Rod Serling television series, plus a new segment featuring a bigot who is transported into the lives of past victims of racism. - Alexandr
