  1. That last one sounds quite interesting. Always wanted to see ‘Time Bandits’ back then when I was a teen, but never did… maybe I’ll be inspired to finally check it out soon! “The Lake House” with Sandra Bullock is another that’s more or less in the category of “time travel”…not a bad romcom.

  2. You missed Avengers 4 hehe. Hey that 41 movie looks good. Love those gritty low-budget aussie films. Just the other night Muky and I watched an interesting British film that had some time travel…now, what was it called….About time (had to look on google!) seen it??

      1. It is a good romantic comedy… I agree with that… I’m done with the talk of plot holes in the Endgame! It’s marvel… it has plot holes


  3. Ones I haven’t seen but adding to L list: I’ll follow you down, 41, and Time after Time. Ones I have seen and liked: Hot tub time machine, Bill & Ted, and Time Bandits. B&T and Time Bandits are great movies. George Carlin as a Time Lord (or whatever was) was so cool. Monty Python style in Time Bandits with a George Harrison soundtrack, who could go wrong with that? Some other cool time movies: Groundhog Day, Men In Black 3 (I’ve watched this one over and over), The Time Machine (2002) with Guy Pearce in it, Terminator movies (“I came back for you, Sarah”), 12 Monkeys (love love love this movie!), and Somewhere in Time, with Christopher Reeve, Jane Seymour, and set on Mackinac Island just off the coast of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.

    1. I was lucky to see Time Bandits when it came out…
      Thank you have a great list. I’ve seen those movies and they slipped my mind completely… Groundhog Day, Men in Black, 3, Terminator, 12 Monkeys…it’s been a long long time but I remember Somewhere In Time.
      Mojo brought up Planet of the Apes…also.

      41 is low budget but very interesting…I’ll Follow you Down is very good also.

      I have a weakness for Time Travel movies.

      1. The first time I saw Time Bandits it scared the wits out of me! It was so dark and then with the fire at their house. It was creepy. It still is kind of creepy, but now I know what happens and am not scared. Sounds silly a grown woman being scared of Time Bandits, but I was at the time.

  4. Very cool post. Interesting picks of some excellent underrated films. Frequency is very good. I’m a John Caviezel fan. The father/son dynamic is touching and the serial killer subplot is compelling. Peggy Sue Got Married is charming and so is Time after Time.

    1. Frequency has a little bit of everything and the concept is different from most.
      I hunt these out quite a bit. 41 is a good indie time travel film.

    1. I first saw it in the early 80s… Malcolm is great. You know it was my first time seeing him in a movie… a little later would be A Clockwork Orange.

      Off topic…I think you like IT…the new IT trailer is out…looks good…I still wish HBO would have covered the book in a long series.

  5. Loved Frequency & The Time Machine (both of them). Peggy Sue Got Married was ruined by Nick Cage for me. He talked like he had a cold throughout the entire movie. The others, I haven’t seen.

    1. A Sound of Thunder? I need to look that one up…Forever Young…those two I’m going to look up… I REALLY like Time Travel movies. I’ve seen the other ones you mentioned…thank you Vic…

      If you ever see one…like an Indie even…let me know if you don’t mind. I found some of them on IMBD… That is where I saw 41 and I’ll Follow You Down.

      It is so weird seeing Haley Joel Osment grown…he just doesn’t look right.


      1. I always thought Kirsten Dunst was great looking. Alot of guys don’t like her for some reason.

        Really? That is a must then…I love The Butterfly Effect. That is why I made this blog to begin with…so someone would mention more.

        I will go over that list…thanks. I read one, one day that had a seventies rock group that traveled through time and appeared now…but it was Korean…sounds funny. I’m going to look for it.


  6. One of my favourites is Kate and Leopold (it’s a romantic comedy – but the time travel element is great fun). I’ve not watched the Time Machine in absolutely years but that was the first one I ever saw. Time Bandits – not my thing, as I don’t particularly enjoy Terry Gilliam movies. Bill and Ted is nutty… and fun (but I think once was enough, lol!) Time after Time – I’ve a vague memory of it, must watch it again some time. I don’t know the others you’ve mentioned here, shall have to look out for them.

    The strangest one I’ve seen is The Time Traveller’s Wife – couldn’t really get to grips with it.

    1. I have heard of Kate and Leopold but never saw it…now I have to. I totally agree with Bill and Ted…once is enough for sure.
      The oddest movie I ever saw was a Terry Gilliam movie…Brazil. That one is way out there. I have The Time Traveller’s Wife somewhere here but I’ve never seen it before.


    1. I got enough connections with some IT people that I could probably get it. I just emailed a buddy of mine that collects a lot of UK shows like me…I will know by tomorrow. Anything with Time Travel…I will give it a try.

      1. Some of the humour might pass you by as it’s very British (London, particularly) but if you were okay with Life on Mars, then you should understand most of this. I think you’ll enjoy it. The main thing if you’re getting it on DVD rather than streaming is whether it’s in the right region for your machine. I can’t play most American shows and movies as we’ve a region 2 player. One day I might get one just for region 1. (Some of our players can be changed for a time but then they need to be changed back again – what a nuisance!)

        There was also a ‘special’ that was broadcast a few years ago (long after the original show finished). While it’s helpful to have seen the original, it also works as a standalone. Here it is on Youtube.
