Time after Time (1979) - Just an all round good s-f/thriller. Pioneering s-f author H. G. Wells (Malcolm McDowall) travels from the 19th century to the present in a time machine of his own invention to find Jack the Ripper, who escaped to the 1980s in the machine.

The Time Machine (1960) - Best film adaptation of the H. G. Wells novel that inspired the above.

Back to the Future trilogy - Plays fast and loose with time paradoxes but in a way that is great fun and managed to make the Delorean sports car cool.


In honour of my five years on Lush, here is the current version of my first Lush story. It was rewritten to fix up some issues a couple years in but the basic story remains intact.

One Beautiful Morning

And my entry from the recent Bookish Stories comp. An after hours visit to the rare books room gets a librarian more than he bargained for...

One Night in the Library

Seconded on Time Bandits. Haven't seen Monkeys but it's Gilliam so I'm sure I'll like it when I do.

I haven't seen many movies with this theme, to be honest.

The Time Traveler's Wife was pretty phenomenal.

Um. Do TV series count? Because Doctor Who would totally be at the top of my list.

There's also "Premonition", which isn't really about time-travel but there's a lot of glimpsing into the future and dissonance between the protagonist's present/future. It's a good movie, regardless.

I avoid time-travel in general - The Time Machine by HG Wells was good (the original movie production)

12 Monkeys - original and creative.
Star Trek IV - awesome all around.

For romanticists - the best soundtrack:

It has to be one of my all time favorite movies, "Somewhere in Time" with Christopher Reeve and Jane Seymour

Primer is one of the best scifi films in general that no one has ever seen, not just time travel.
Budget wise, it's dollar for dollar the best scifi movie ever made. (so far)

Can't we all just agree it's "Back to the Future" and go talk about something else, like what's the second best movie about time travel...

One (well, three really) that I left off my response, though including them is a bit spoilery if you don't know the ending of the first:

the original 1968 Planet of the Apes and it's first two sequels, Beneath the Planet of the Apes and Escape from the Planet of the Apes. The last two in the series (Conquest and Battle) did not involve time travel, though.



In honour of my five years on Lush, here is the current version of my first Lush story. It was rewritten to fix up some issues a couple years in but the basic story remains intact.

That's an odd way of spelling primer.
