Daylight Savings Time ends next Saturday. We Fall Back. That means we get an hour back! Since I loves me some time travel stories: Doctor Who, Bill & Ted's Excellent Journey, Groundhog Day, Timecop, the CLASSIC The Time Machine and the equally classic Time After Time. I'd argue that Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home is a much better time travel story than Star Trek: First Contact. You might disagree, your mileage may vary.

According to viewers on Rotten Tomatoes, what the Top Five time travel movies?

    The Time Traveller's Wife

    My wife loved the 2003 novel by Audrey Niffenegger. After she read it, she was excited that there was going to be a movie made out of it. She balled her eyes out over the book...and then the movie. She's not alone. While the movie only gets a 38% score from critics, viewers gave the movie a 59% score on Rotten Tomatoes!

    The Lake House

    Keanu Reeves takes a while to grow on ya. He's great in Bill & Ted's Excellent Journey and The Matrix. I liked him in Speed. That was "Die Hard on a bus". He worked with Sandra Bullock again in 2006 when they made The Lake House. They live two years apart and share letters through a magical-mystical mailbox time portal. It's set in Chicago, and one of the highlights is a walking tour of the city for the architecture. The house itself is a kind of redonkulous all glass house on stilts over a lake. It was designed by Keanu's "father" played by Christopher Plummer. While only 35% of reviewers liked it, it still gets a 73% score from Rotten Tomatoes moviegoers!

    Deja Vu

    This is probably one of my favorite Denzel Washington films, and one of my top favorite time travel movies! A terrorist (Jim Caviezel) blows up a riverboat with US Naval personnel and their families. Washington is one of the investigators. He encounters another team of investigators that are using somewhat unconventional science. It's sci-fi, it's a mystery, it's an action adventure, and it's a romance. 55% of Rotten Tomatoes critics liked it, but 73% of moviegoers gave it thumb's up!

    Jim Caviezel plays a cop who's firefighter dad died when he was a kid. He's lost and confused until he fires up his dad's old ham radio during freak solar activity. Together, they're able to more than just reconnect - they solve a murder mystery together. Plus it's got that really cool Garth Brooks song, too. 70% of critics liked the move, and 81% of moviegoers agreed.

    This is probably the best time travel story eh-varSuperman, Christopher Reeve uses self-hypnosis to travel back in time to the 19th Century where he meets and falls in love with a stage actress played by Jane Seymour. Seymour's controlling manager, played by Christopher Plummer tried to keep them apart. Before he got beat up in a diner in Superman II, he got beat up in this movie. The story takes place at The Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island. While only 59% of critics gave the film thumb's up, 88% of viewers liked the film
