What is your best time travel movie?

Because of my age I like the time machine. .But my real favorite is 12 Monkeys.

I'm certain I posted in this thread earlier!  But it's disappeared.

Anyway....

Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure.

Edit:  Just noticed the thread is double posted.  I thought I was going mad!

The 2002 version of "The Time Machine" was very entertaining.

"Time crimes" and "Looper" are probably two of the most thought-provoking that I have seen in recent years.

At my age of 64 I am very conscious of time. Because I know how little I have left. I would love to travel to the future. To see things that I know I can never live to experience. I really wish I could have a reasonably long life span. 4 or 5,000,000 years so I could get a perspective.

Back to the Future

Terminator
(only the first)

Twelve Monkeys (and La Jetee on which it was based)

Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure ("Remember the trashcan!")

Time After Time (H.G. Wells chases Jack the Ripper into the future)

The Time Machine (the 1960 version, not the more recent one)

The Final Countdown (nuclear aircraft carrier goes back to the week before Pearl Harbor... enjoyable despite the copout at the end)

Slaughterhouse Five (a far better book than a movie)

By a long shot, and I mean a long shot, the best time travel movie is Primer.  Nothing else even compares.

I seriously doubt I would be disappointed. Suppose I had been born in 1448 instead of 1948. That is only 500 years. I think I would be thrilled with what I saw 500 years after my birth. I would be equally thrilled to see 500 years into the future.

Time Traveller's Wife.

Although not a movie, the 8th episode (?) of Stargate Universe is a BADASS time travel plot.

Or Star Trek First Contact.

That, and Terminator and T2.
Bill and Ted, the first one.
Frequency.
Back to the Future.
The time manipulation in Harry Potter Prisoner of Azhakbnan... Azakh... anyway, that was cool.
Time After Time.

But 12 Monkeys was the class in the genre.

Not really a movie, but you can't talk about time travel without Dr Who.

I just saw Looper and really enjoyed it.  Interesting twist.
