How Time Travel Works in Movies

Do you know how time travel works? Unless you're some master scientist in the theories of special and general relativity and law of physics, probably not. So why not let Hollywood explain it to you. Here's how time travel works, according to the movies.


My favorite time travel method? A flux capacitor and bringing a DeLorean to 88, of course. A close second is via hot tubs. All the other methods like somehow creating a hole in the space-time continuum, bending the circuits of history and freezing oneself seems a heckuva lot more complicated and a helluva lot less fun. The clip above has explanations from over two dozen time travel movies. God, I love any movie that involves time travel. [Flavorwire]
