Me too! Great underrated flick.
All of them! When I see a movie which deals with time travel, I see think of it on the same scale as a Willie E. Coyote & Roadrunner cartoon and watch it for nothing more than enjoyment.
"Emmanuelle Through Time" -- the perfect time-travel movie, made better by an invasion of highly-sexed humanoid clones. Best line of the film: "It's a little cramped in there."
One of my favorites that I stumbled on is an indie movie called Primer. Very thoughtful, even mindbending at some points. As with many indie movies, you have to be engaged to follow it, maybe watch it twice. If you're into that type of movie, it's definitely one worth finding.
...although I see now that punchguy already mentioned this one, so I'll just give it a big +1!
On the other end of the spectrum, I can't believe there's not been one mention of Hot Tub Time Machine?!
While not time-travel per-se, the original Planet of The Apes got the time-dilation effect...traveling at near light speed, "local" time passes much more slowly...mostly correct.
Star Trek IV,The Voyage Home
Technically none of them can do it wrong until someone has done it. Well ok maybe Superman did it wrong.
Many scientists have said that time travel to the past does not follow the rules of physics, though to the future is possible.
As a fictional scientist once said "there are always possibilities". The methods used today to detect planets orbiting distant stars were once considered a impossibility by many scientists.
Since the rules or laws of physics were written by humans, it is reasonable to believe that they are at best incomplete, if not inherently flawed.
Here is the whole story. Time travel done right! ...and fun, too.
I finally got a chance to see Timecrimes. Not bad! It followes the single timeline theory. The only problem I had with it is that Hector was acting things out to keep the timeline intact. In Harry Potter, they didn't do that which makes more sense to me.
Timecrimes is on Netflix if anyone wants to take a look. It's subtitled and low budget but a nice exercise in one type of time travel theory.
Also (not that they got it "right"):
Somewhere in Time
The Terminator 1 & 2
Army of Darkness
Well I think the theory has something to do with the idea that the technology needed to time travel cant go back past the time it was created because then it would cease to exist due to not having existed in that time.
There is also the theory that "debunks" time travel to the past based on the Idea that we havent run into "time travel tourists" yet lol.
@Turnbjr, good list but I feel like T1 and T2 shouldnt be there. There were far to many over sights to be listed as good time travel movies (I.e. John would never be born if the machines never sent back a Terminator causing John to send back Reese/His father).
