It's a good time for time-travel movies. Looper opens this week, joining Midnight in Paris, Men in Black 3, The Sound of My Voice, and others as recent examples.

But it's a genre that's been around for a while. Here's a timeline for some of the rest.

FILM: The Time Machine (1960). DIRECTOR: George Pal. WHAT: Adaptation of H.G. Wells's classic sci-fi novel. HOW?: Via a whirly thing that is a Steampunker's dream come true. WHEN AND WHERE?: From Victorian England, to 1970 on the verge of a nuclear attack, to 802,701 AD — when class conflict has taken a turn for the worse. TIMELY LESSON: Eat the 47 percent who don't work or pay taxes.
