16 FAVORITE FILMS WITH TIME TRAVEL, RANKED
I love movies and I (often?) enjoy time travel myself. These movies feature a variety of time travel: fixed timelines, dynamic timelines, paradox loops, multiverse with alternate timelines, and a variety of time machines: gov't or corporate owned, personal inventions, mysterious anomaly, personal misfortune (or luck!), relativistic effects, etc.
