What would you do if you could go back in time and change history? Would you try to see your family like in BACK TO THE FUTURE or would you mess with sporting events like in BACK TO THE FUTURE PART II? Would you become a better person like in GROUNDHOG DAY or try to make money disposing of bodies like in LOOPER? The possibilities are endless and that is one of the reasons time travel makes for great movies.

PROJECT ALMANAC hits theaters today and brings to us yet another entry in the time travel genre of movies. Time travel has been a trope used in everything from horror and action to comedy and romance. There are so many movies to choose from in the genre, we decided to whittle the list down to the ten best movies that exemplify the genre.

Keep in mind that this list is simply our take and your favorite may not have made the cut. If so, feel free to let us know in the talk backs below.

PROJECT ALMANAC is now playing.

If you love time travel movies you

have to see "The Final Countdown" 1980 with Kirk Douglas and Martin Sheen!
Briefly, the aircraft USS Nimitz goes back in time to the eve of the attack of Pearl Harbor via a lightning storm.
They then must decide whether to take on the Japanese fleet or let nature takes it's course, classic time travel!

I like how he notes that Looper had a love/hate relationship with the audience. i really didnt like that movie. As far as time travel goes, that one had the most loop holes in my opinion,

So, i thought i'd make some suggestions...

About Time - people shoved this to the side as a Romantic Comedy, and while it's a fine rom-com, i think it's the relationship with the father that really makes this movie stand out,
Hot Tub Time Machine - a dumb time travel movie, it's not trying to be

Hot Tub Time Machine - a dumb time travel movie, it's not trying to be anything special, but it definitely was fun
Safety Not Guaranteed - A fun little indie film that got Trevorrow the Jurassic Park job
XMen Days of Future Past - self explanatory

Yes, absolutely! Looper was a good movie but it was the worst movie ever about time travel! For example, at the end of the movie if he never lived to become an adult he would never have gone back in time and he would never have been standing in the corn field in the first place! Back to the Future has a similar problem but at least in Back to the Future there was a delay introduced: the time line doesn't change right away so McFly has a chance to change things back before he disappears.

Source Code actually works: the scientists were right in the sense that changing the past doesn't change anything for the present; all it does is create a separate time line that presumably existed anyway. And the Terminator movies work as long as the war between man and machines happens: if the war never happens then where do the terminators come from.

That was my main beef with Looper. All well and good to make a time-travel movie and ignore the whole issue of the paradox, but I'm never going to view it as an intelligent take on the genre if that's the case.
It was an alright film, but as a time-travel movie it was a wasted opportunity and needed more thought putting into it. A shame because the Willis / Levitt combo worked really well.
