    Favorite/Classic time-travel stories??

    What are some classic (or just "your favorite") time-travel stories? Whether movie or book. Not just "any you can think of", but ones that are truly classic or that you truly love.

    Just curious....the Terminator show got me thinking about it, because time-travel stories have always been one of my absolute favorites.

    First ones that come to mind

    Classics Books:
    The Time Machine - HG Wells
    A Wrinkle In Time - Madeleine L'Engle

    Movies:
    The Terminator (original, accept no substitutes)
    Somewhere in Time (loved that movie)



    What others?

    Your picture did not allow hot linking it seems. Properties show it was "Back to the Future".

    I agree...those were hella fun movies too.

    The Final Countdown. The USS Nimitz goes back to WWII. With a little tweeking this movie could have been huge, it's pretty good as it is.

    Nevermind my previous comment....I just looked it up. I have seen that movie. That was the 70's modernization update of the HG Wells "The Time Machine" movie. The one with the Jack the Ripper chase.

    I have heard the title.....and it sounds vaguely familiar. I'm not sure if I've seen that or not.

    I might have to check those out....though I'd be leary on the Asimov one. I've read a few of his books and just think he's highly overrated.

    I enjoy his works, quite a bit actually. but he can be dry and can be very "technical"...I really enjoyed his i-robot series while I found foundation, off. Personally, I look at his works like founding father type stuff. Not fantastic literature, but has its place due to how it affected every piece of work that came after it.

    I also enjoyed, the butterfly effect (the first one)...good story.

    The whole concept is ludicrous and laughable, so I can only enjoy a movie that's totally farcical.

    Note to screenwriters: Faster than the speed of light is not the same thing as faster than the speed of time. Therefore, only The Planet of the Apes' underlying premise is even remotely plausible.
    The search for inner peace continues...

    I just watched the marathon on that movie last weekend. God I still love it all. I think its probably my 15th time watching it.

    On the popular front that one episode of Star Trek where saving the nice lady would result in a truely hellish future was worthwhile.

    "The Time Machine" deserves a place simply because of the time it was written, e.g. first.

    There are several by Heinlein that are classics.

    All You Zombies and By His Bootstraps, the G and R(X?) time loop stories.
    The Door into Summer. One of very few that 'creates' time travel and more or less answers the question of why it never gets used very much.
    Elsewhen - Perhaps not time travel, but perhaps the root of the alternate reality story.
    Farnhams Freehold. Doesn't seem like time travel very much, but two cases in it and what a difference a stick shift makes. Two different (? or is the second just a controlled version of the first) ways of time travel. Why the second might not get used is left for the reader to figure out.
