    We have recently had the release of "time travel" DVDs involving travel into the future (The Time Machine, Kate and Leopold), and the Time After Time DVD is just around the corner. But I'm looking for a DVD involving time travel by late-20th century or early-21st century people back into a past culture.

    There will, of course, be BTTF in just a few short months, but I'm looking for travel to a culture farther into the past, a culture more radically different than ours. Black Knight comes to mind, but I would like something where the producers have gone to great lengths in researching the past culture in order to reproduce its characteristics as accurately as possible (and a commentary track explaining such details would be very nice!)

    Does anyone know of any DVDs like this?

    Perhaps the forthcoming R2 Doctor Who DVD, The Aztecs will fit the bill.

    12 Monkeys is a good time travelling movie.
    Terminator (the first one) does time travel pretty good as well.

    OK, some of these movies do not have time travel in direct relation to the plot, but they all have some sort of time travel in them.
    Austin Powers: TSWSM
    Austin Powers: Goldmember (Not on DVD yet)
    Superman: The first one (Hey he does turn time back)
    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III: Turtles In Time
    Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home
    Planet Of The Apes (Tim Burton remake)
    In case some have not seen it:
    GalaxyQuest, for those that have seen it you know what I mean.

    Black Knight (Not that I have seen it)[​IMG]
    Groundhog Day ? [​IMG]
    That's all I could think of off the top of my head.

    Michael Crichton's "Timeline" would be perfect for you if
    they would ever get around to making the movie.
