From a future destroyed by plague, a prisoner "volunteers" to be sent back in time to fetch pre-infection samples.
A great movie that stands apart both from its contemporaries and even from movies of today. It touches upon a lot of topics I find interesting in movies.

TODO - At the end of the making-of is a secret menu and more stuff.
Archaeologists discover an ancient body with impossible technologies, giving evidence of a time-traveling journalist.
Quite a good movie! With a three hour run time, it was an easy binge and one that strings together seamlessly. A great story, and while it has some storytelling moments, it has unforgiving realism for its characters.
It has only a couple of awkward "like it's totes real, yo" moments because of some characters, but thankfully it's well-balanced and is overall absent of religion aside from the major plot point.
A cop gets sent back in time alongside criminals.
I really liked this one, and I'll take notes when I re-watch it.
Two interns and a lovesick magazine reporter follow up on a crazy old classified ad requesting a partner for time travel.
It's not exactly a time-travel movie, science fiction, a comedy or a romance or a romantic comedy, but it does have a light dusting of everything. It's "okay".
A writer visiting contemporary Paris is repeatedly transported to 1920s Paris.
This has been described as a romantic comedy, but there is neither romance nor comedy to be found. It's dry and drags its feet.
A fantastic, emotional, movie. This has all the elements of quality which make a movie truly great.
I'm surprised I took next to no notes. There really isn't any actual "substance" to this film, in the sense that there are few references to people, places, or things. It's all one contained package that is surprisingly easy to lose time with.
An investigator of airplane disasters learns their passengers are critical to the plans of a woman he falls in love with.
This is one of the early time travel movies which really grabbed me and brought me into the genre. I don't know that I'd call it great or could strongly recommended it to others, but I like it a lot.
Based on Air Raid - (1977 story), by John Varley
A student is approached by his future-self, and is sent into a time loop when he ignores his own advice.
Quite a good movie. With a great pace and a particularly good sound track, I found this quite emotional.
