One of the most celebrated devices in science fiction stories is that of time travel, and there are several great movies that use it. Today we are going to dedicate this weekly dose of recommendations to review 4 of the best time travel movies that lovers of good science fiction can watch on Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, HBO Max and Disney+.
If you fancy more other types of proposals within the same genre, I remind you of our selection of stupendous space movies available on platforms, the unforgettable movies that mix horror and science fiction that you can watch on streaming or great dystopian movies that you can in some of these services.
Finally, I remind you of our lists with the best movies of 2022 on Netflix, the one with the 2022 movies that you cannot miss on Amazon Prime Video, the one with the best movies of the year on Disney+ or the one with the essential movies of 2022 that you can watch on HBO Max. Without further ado, let’s focus on today’s chosen ones:
‘The butterfly effect’ (‘The Butterfly Effect’, 2004)
Direccion: Eric Bress, J. Mackye Gruber. Reparto: Ashton Kutcher, Amy Smart, Eric Stoltz, William Lee Scott, Elden Henson, Logan Lerman, Ethan Suplee, Melora Walters
At first I was tempted to include ‘Interstellar’ here, but I preferred to take the opportunity to recommend another film that is currently somewhat more forgotten despite the fact that it was a surprise success at the time and gave rise to two sequels that it would be better to stop reading. side. It brings together an entertaining proposal but also a rather curious approach to the theme of time travel, also counting on a work by Ashton Kutcher that is much more convincing than usual.
‘The planet of the apes’ (‘The Planet of the Apes’, 1968)
Direccion: Franklin J. Schaffner. Reparto: Charlton Heston, Roddy McDowall, Kim Hunter, Maurice Evans, James Whitmore, James Daly, Linda Harrison
Simply one of the most important science fiction movies in the history of cinema. It is true that many remember above all its shocking ending, different from that of the novel it adapts, but before that there are a multitude of memorable scenes in an unrepeatable film that combines a reflection on the human condition that is still fully valid with the great spectacle for those looking only for luxury entertainment.
‘The Timecrimes’ (2007)
Address : Nacho Vigalondo. Cast : Karra Elejalde, Candela Fernandez, Barbara Goenaga, Nacho Vigalondo and Juan Inciarte.
A great demonstration that with very little means you can make an exciting film. Of course, for that, a script as worked and elaborate as the one Nacho Vigalondo wrote for his first feature film is essential, in which he made the most of the use of loops in time to propose a thriller that first arouses curiosity, later It hooks you and in the end it leaves you wanting more titles like this -and there is already something similar to watch totally free on YouTube-.
Direccion: James Cameron. Reparto: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Michael Biehn, Linda Hamilton, Paul Winfield, Lance Henriksen, Bess Motta, Rick Rossovich, Earl Boen.
Another indisputable classic of science fiction cinema that gave rise to a long-lived saga and I admit that I enjoy all its installments. Of course, the first two are the best by far, with the first flirting more with terror and the second with action. There are reasons to prefer any of them, but it is best to always start with the first, much harsher and with a chilling Arnold Schwarzenegger .
