Mr. Dalliard provides this handy flowchart to organize time travel movies. And yes, I immediately looked for Back to the Future and backtracked.

  • That is downright freakin’ awesome. :) Now he just needs to go back in time and add all the TV shows dealing with time travel too (Quantum Leap, 8 days, Continuum, multiple episodes of ST and Stargate).

  • There was “interaction with self” in Primer. One of the Aarons had to drug the other Aaron.

  • The looper does not seem to have a single timeline though. It is a bit weird like that, keeps the initial timeline so that bruce willis travels back and does everything he does, somehow getting affected by what’s going on, memories realligning, etc. but in the end when he is undone at an earlier point of his timeline, it does not seem to eradicate what he has done in his past up until that point..

  • Was looking for Bill & Ted – probably fits in the 12 Monkeys flow.

  • I can’t find “time travel in the nude” in this flowchart..

  • Primer is unique and special.

  • Where’s Time Bandits? Or Bill and Ted? Jumper? Minority Report?
