The idea of time travel has been around for hundreds of years, but it's far from exhausted. It's impossible to create a definitive time travel story, because every era feels unique and exciting, and writers and directors are given complete freedom to choose the setting and heroes for their story.

Here are the 10 best time travel movies, ranked:

As you've probably noticed, the movies on this list are strikingly different from the traditions of the time travel genre. Instead of sending characters back in time to see them deal with the perils of the chosen historical period, the writers of the aforementioned films use time travel as a chance to refresh stale movie genres - from comedy to action movies.

You won't find similar time travel gimmicks in the above mentioned movies, as each of them was created with utmost care by the writers, who made sure that their movies will stand above the rest in the long run.

Of course, some of the movies on this list, such as "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkoban," are not actually time travel movies, but their little time travel subplots are done with such skill that it became impossible for us to take them out of the competition.
