12 Monkeys has always intruiged me - I have seen it several times, but I only seem to understand it for about 30 minutes after it ends, and then I over-think it and confuse myself (it was on last night on TV incidentally).

As far as the Terminator films go, I love how the TV series jumped forward in time, thus writing over the debacle that was the third one - I can pretend it never happened and it's completely canon  TeddyR

Also, it's not a film but as a fan of, um, Star Trek: Voyager (I know), I feel I have to say that they had some pretty good time travel plots - I liked the way the characters groaned when they realised that they were stuck in paradoxes as well.

TIME BANDITS (1981)


Only ONE mention of this gem so far?!

Granted, as a kid I was easier to impress, but this one loses nothing in the re-visit.

Time After Time, with Malcolm McDowell and David Warner. Kind of an interesting mishmash of a story there.

Time traveling movies tend to get bogged down in paradoxes:

"What if I traveled back in time and killed my grandfather?  Then I would never have be born and I couldn't travel back in time to kill my grandfather... so then I would have been born... ouch, my head hurts thinking about it."  Audiences can get badly confused, but these movies can be lots of fun if executed correctly.

What if you are dealing with a parallel universe? Will your actions in one time line effect the events in another? Are the parallel universes also parallel in events? If you were to die in one time line would you cease to exist in the others?
So if you were to kill you grandfather in one time line you may cease to exist in that time line, however if you originally came from another time line via a rip in the space time continuum you may continue to exist, but will never be born in that time line, as if you were to kill your grandfather you may not yet exist in the line you've crossed over to. But if you were to travel back in linear time and killed your grandfather then you future looks bleak. This assuming that time is linear and not circular.
 
Ah didn't think about that did you?

Again, I like the Doctor Who approach. Time is not as orderly and direct as people might think. History is not as static as it appears to us, but rather changing all the time. With that excuse, you can bounce around through history, meddling in everything, and things proceed pretty much as they should. But you can't go back and change something after you've meddled with it. And there are some changes that would have serious repercussions, but time also seems to be able to compensate. And paradoxes are still possible, but there are ways to get around them too. Whatever the story requires is possible, and if it doesn't quite make sense to us, it's because we humans still can't get our heads around what the Time Lords mastered eons ago. Nice.

The Langoliers (1995)
I love the fact they went back in time but only like 20 minutes or so. And that the past is actually erased rather than existing on a seperate plane.  Smile

That would be like the Omega 13 in Galaxy Quest.

That's the one with the giant meatballs with teeth, right ?
Al from Quantum Leap is in it, correct ?

Well, am I right ?

Yep, TIME CHASERS, aka TANGENTS.  It was made in Vermont, not Canada, though.  Pretty terrible, not something I'd want to watch without the commentary.

Incidentally, that Spanish TIMECRIMES movie that prompted this thread is being remade for a 2011 release, supposedly with David Cronenberg set to direct.  A good idea, because although the plot was great, there were lots of opportunities for suspense that the novice director just couldn't pull off in the original.
