    No Millennium? No Primer?

  2. And Star Trek better than Back To The Future! Clearly ridiculous.

  3. I think I would have put the Back to the Future movies at number one.

    I have to say I’m glad to see Bill & Ted on the list. I like to confuse people by explaining what I like about that movie is its realism. I refer, of course, to the fact that the people from the past speak their own languages, not English. And that what they end up doing in the 20th century actually fits their historical characters. (Well, except for Napoleon. No reason he would go to someplace like Waterloo.)

  4. Horrid list, IMHO.

    only three from that list I would suggest:

    Back To The Future (the first one, didn’t like the sequels)

    12 Monkeys

    Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home

    Maybe Bill + Ted’s Excellent Adventure



    Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

    The Terminator and T2

  5. I 2nd PRIMER and where is The Terminator?????

    How about Donnie Darko, my favorite: Run Lola Run and for laughs Time Bandits?!?!?!??!

  6. Time Machine – 1960 (i hope), or 2002?

    A couple here i hadn’t heard of, so thanks.

    The second Back to the Future movie would top my list, as it does a really incredible job of layering multiple McFlys at the dance.

    But no Groundhog Day or Time Bandits? Ouch!

  7. I know it has few champions, but I personally loved The Butterfly Effect. That final scene (in the theatrical version) made all of its shortcomings seem small to me.
