25 best time travel movies ever

You can't travel back in time to have another crack at getting hold of Marty McFly's Nike Mags, so why not join us for time travel movie marathon instead?

Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure (1988)

A couple of high school slackers are about to flunk their history exam until they run into Rufus – a Bill and Ted superfan from the future – who lends them his time travelling phone box to complete their assignment and fulfil their destiny to rule the world through music.

The Time Traveler's Wife (2009)

If you're in a time-hopping relationship, is it technically cheating when you haven't even met yet? The Time Traveler's wife clearly thinks so, which is why she issues him with a diary to keep track of their impromptu meetings, which he then gives to a younger version to write in the first place. Confusing much?

More after the break...

The Black Knight (2001)

Martin Lawrence plays Jamal, a theme park employee who is transported back to medieval times after a blow to the head. He mistakes 14th century England for impressive theme park realism, but a gory beheading soon convinces him this horror show is for real. When he’s not throwing up clichéd comical gags, he dons the armour of the Black Knight to lead the rebellion against the corrupt king.

Flight of the Navigator (1986)

Poor David Freeman. First he’s kidnapped by aliens, then he time travels to 1986 with a vast amount of knowledge about the universe, only to discover he’s been missing for the past eight years. In a bid to go back to being a kid of the 80s, he embarks on another alien adventure. We just hope he used his futurist knowledge to take over NASA.

Back to the Future (1985)

Everyone’s first thought when it comes to time-travel movies... the first of the Back to the Future trilogy showed what happens when you hit 88mph in a DeLorean DMC-12 fitted with a flux capacitor. Michael J Fox plays Marty McFly, the teen who travels back from 1985 to 1955 and ends up having to get his parents to fall in love.

Awesome list, although if I had to choose a Star Trek time travel movie it would have to be the voyage home. Brilliant set up with a truly spine tingling reveal.
