These Time Travel Movies Need To Be On Your Watchlist If You’re A Sci-Fi Fan

When it comes to sci-fi and fantasy genre, time travel movies form a major part of the segment. Although there is still a long period before time travel becomes a reality, the movies based on this concept have shown the good, bad and its ugly side, if it ever come true.

If you’re a cinephile, irrespective of whether you like sci-fiction and fantasy or not, there are some time travel movies which you must watch for their sheer brilliance. And if you like this particular genre, then these time travel movies should be on watchlist right away!


The Terminator

We saw Arnold Schwarzenegger in his career best portraying a cyborg who travels from 2029 to save the world from an impending mishap in the coming years.




The sub-genre of time travel is taken into outer space gorgeously in this Christopher Nolan movie.



Back to the Future

The loveable nature and the fun and enrapturing elements of this 1985 movie make it a memorable one in the list of time travel movies.

Donnie Darko

This is probably one of the darkest and most thought-provoking time travel movies. Jake Gyllenhaal plays the titular role of a man who travels back and forth in time over a course of bizarre events.



Planet of the Apes

Much ahead of its time, this 1968 classic was so successful that it had a five-film series and even a reboot series decades later after its initial release. The role-reversal between humans and apes was and is still relevant.


These were just the best of the lot from many time travel movies in the history of cinema. Here are a few others in case you want to carry on with your movie binge in this genre.
