Best Time Travel Movies

The Top Ten
1 Back to the Future Back to the Future Product Image

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

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.

My favorite time travel movie... without a doubt the best movie I have ever seen!

2 Back to the Future Part II Back to the Future Part II Product Image

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 structured ...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.

Marty McFly and Doc Brown as they go to the year 2015 to prevent Marty's kids from ruining the McFly family's reputation.

3 Back to the Future Part III Back to the Future Part III Product Image

In the final installment of the trilogy, Marty McFly goes back to 1885 to stop an outlaw from killing Doc Brown in a duel, and bring him back home to 1985.

I love number three as much as the other movies but this one I find the most actoin packed and detailed also I like the fact that marty and doctor.brown kind of switch places.

I like the 1st movie.
I like the 2nd movie.
I didn't like this movie.

How the hell is Click above this?

Better than the first one and would go in my top 10 favorite movies ever

10 Click Click Product Image

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.

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