When traveling back into the past, we see visuals from WWII, the Civil War, and Indians attacking a wagon train; these events are out of proper sequence. The Indian wars took place after the Civil War and should appear before it when traveling back through time. See more »


Dr. 'Doc' Gordon: The past, of course, still exists
Mr. Denning: Oh?
Dr. 'Doc' Gordon: Suppose a scientist on a planet some fifty light years from here were observing Earth, he would at this moment be looking at light rays that left this Earth fifty years ago. He might very well be watching the First World War. In effect, some full fifty years' of history would be contained in those beams traveling to that distant planet
Mr. Denning: That's quite an idea!
Dr. 'Doc' Gordon: It's more than an idea, Mr Denning, it's fact. And since space-time is a continuum, the present is ...

17 April 2002 | by EL BUNCHOSee all my reviews

Remember the days when there used to be matinees on the weekends with double and triple features that parents could drop their kids off at and have a day of peace? Well, I saw this one when I was ten years old and I went with great anticipation, since one of the early matinees that I went to was a fun double feature of THE SEVENTH VOYAGE OF SINBAD and KING KONG ESCAPES.

Now here's the problem: when the matinee was advertised on TV, the ads were for a film called JOURNEY TO THE BEGINNING OF TIME; something about a bunch of kids in a raft who somehow end up in the prehistoric era battling dinosaurs. All of the kids I knew went to see it, and we were alive with excitement. The lights dimmed...and we got JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF TIME, a boring highbrow flick for a much older age group. That's right, the distributor sent the theater the wrong movie!!! I can only imagine the plight of the poor theater manager who had to face all of the irate parents after the show....Anyway, I was one of about twenty kids who actually sat through the movie, and I really wish I hadn't. That so-called "twist" ending...Oh, brother!!!
