These 8 movies are the best time-travel movies of all time and they have excellently showcased the much confusing, yet fascinating, subject of time-travel.

Time-travel movies have been in existence for the longest time now, and a huge part of that is because the fascination that future brings in with it. We all want to know what future holds in for us, and even think about it more often than not, however, being able to see what other’s perception of future, is even more interesting.

I mean, come on, who hasn’t lived on to believe that we will definitely have flying cars in our future and can be teleported to any place that we want?

Because there are so many people experimenting with the whole time-travel genre, there are some good and bad outcomes that we get to see. While the bad ones are more in numbers, in comparison to the good ones, it’s the good ones that keep our hopes alive and sometimes get us shit scared about any kind of dystopian future turning into reality. Something that no one wants.
