Which is your favorite Time Travel Movie/Novel?
Who doesn't love Star Trek? I do of course...As much I Love Sci-fi movies, I love novels more than that. My latest one being "A Time for Susan".
You want to share yours? C'on it will be fun...!
Any novel for Charles Dickens, it will take you away from being tired through travel, I prefer Great Expectation.
Gonna list them all separately, because I do what I want!
Novel - The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Time travel isn't a HUGE deal in these books, but it happens frequently enough to count, and I simply can't ignore the greatest piece of sci-fi comedy ever written.
TV Series - Steins;Gate. Not only is the idea behind its time travel weird and interesting, but I love how the characters use it for really dumb, mundane things. It also helps that I love the characters in question, and that the story takes a really dark turn halfway through.
Movie - The Girl Who Leapt Through Time. Another example of a character using time travel for silly, petty things, only to have the story take a darker direction 40 minutes in. I love pretty much everything about this movie, and I feel it really nails the "consequences of time travel" plot perfectly.
Video Game - Chrono Trigger. It's as simple as time-travel stories get: Your friend invents time travel, shenanigans ensue, you learn some monster destroys the world in the future, and so you must stop him. The end. This game is perfect in almost every respect--appealing graphics, legendary soundtrack, likable characters, gripping yet simple plot, fun turn-based RPG combat, and multiple (some very funny) endings!
A very good question! A Shadow Out of Time by H. P. Lovecraft is probably my favorite short story (that just happens to feature time travel), but I recently read a short story compilation called something like 'the best time travel stories of the 20th century' and every entry was amazing.
My favorite time travel movie would have to be back to the future. In addition to being sci-fi goodness, it has a really sweet story at its core.
And, even though you didn't ask for a television show, I feel that Doctor Who deserves to be on this list. Never has traveling through time and space been as fun as when it's with the doctor.
I have not really read any exclusive Time Travel Novel. But if I remember right, Harry Potter-3 had a Time Turner piece and the story was so brilliantly woven around that idea by J K Rowling. The film too was quite brilliantly taken.
I have to go with "Back to the Future & E.T." I love the story line that it tells us.

What is your favorite Tom Hanks movie and why?I love all Tom Hanks movies. It is hard for me to pick a favorite, but I did settle on one which shows the wide range of emotions he can portray in his acting. Road to Perdition is my favorite movie with Tom Hanks.

TOP TEN BEST BOOKS (yet...)If you are a ridiculous, I mean...er, avid reader like myself, then you will read just about anything. I have a love of so many authors, genres and subjects, but there are always a few that stay with me for many years. Sometimes it is difficult to find other voracious...
