Eleven Memorable Time Travel Movies

Our own David Schuster may have given Source Code two and a half stars, but it racked up an impressive 90% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.  So I plan to go ahead an see it tonight.

In the meantime, I decided to peruse the Internet and see what other time travel movies are among the most popular ever made. 

I visited several sites.  Some have a top ten list.  Others are a very detailed, including this one, that had 180 movies in their list.

Based on the research and ones I have seen personally, here is my list in alphabetical order.  I did not include more than one in a series, such as Terminator or Star Trek, in order to include a greater variety.  Otherwise, flicks like the Back to the Future series would have taken up too many places.  Honorable mention goes out to "Time Bandits" and Hot Tub Time Machine."

  • I also loved The Time Traveller's Wife because it dealt with the human side and how can you resist Rachel Mcadams? It was quite touching and had a clever premise.

    Yes, it was an interesting take on the the travel genre, but with no attempt to explain it scientifically, it didn't make the cut.

    Not quite a time travel movie, but check out "The Chronology Protection Case" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vrRiFZ9rGtg
