Time Travel Movies That aren't about time travel (with links to Wikipedia. )
Here's a list of movies that are not about Time Travel, but have some element of time travel in them, and tell stories about something other than Time Travel.
- Time Bandits.
This movie is not about time-travel, really. It's about a parent's role in the fulfillment of their child's desires. And about parents with bad listening skills. This film still holds the high-water mark in my book for an otherwise acceptable film with an inexcusably terrible ending.
- Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure.
Not really _about_ time travel, so much as about personal accountability. The one thing that this film has going for it is that it has a rock solid understanding of the impact time travel has on cause and effect. Pay particular attention to Detective Logan's missing keys. They managed to screw this up something horrible in the otherwise superior sequel "Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey."
- 12 Monkeys.
Its another Terry Gilliam. What I like about this one is that it doesn't presuppose that "Time Travelers" aren't just "crazy people." What if it's not you who am crazy, it is you who am mad?
- Dude, where's my Butterfly Effect.
This isn't about time travel at all. This is about regret and dispair. It's a dumb movie with a dumb hollywood ending that makes us all dumber that it was ever made.
- Minority Report
There is actually no time travel in this movie. This movie is about precognition, not time travel. And, come to think of it, it's actually about the media and about the danger of drawing conclusions from datasets. DOUBLE GABE FAIL!!
