The Harry Potter one was pretty interesting.

I think the reason that they dont use time turners for large past events is because they only work one way, so say if you used it to go back 2 months, you would be stuck in that time hiding until your future self goes to the past

There are two schools of thought concerning time travel. The more traditional approach would be that when a time traveler goes back, he can change the events of history. In this version of time travel, there never was a time traveler anywhere in history until the first one moved from his own time period. This would be exemplified in Back to the Future.

The second theory would be that the events of time cannot be changed. The time traveler tries to prevent or cause something, but inadvertently causes history to repeat itself in the exact same manner or fails to change anything at all. The time traveler was always present at this point in time, as well as their starting point.

The Time Turner is based on the second theory. Buckbeak was saved the first time around, but they had to go back in time to be there. The Potter's deaths were in itself proof that no one used a time turner to save them, or no one succeeded in saving them when they did use the time turner. Therefor, it would be useless to try to use the time turner to save them, as it would be theoretically impossible, even with magic.

There is a reason they let a young student use the thing. In all reality it's just a toy.

5: He never freaked out about her not being able to marry a prince. They even made plans to get married THEN he freaked out. Through the whole movie they kept mentioning that the only person the law said she COULD marry was a prince. I just honestly wonder if the person who wrote that even saw the movie.   
10. After they used the time traveling device they learned that they COULDN'T change the past, only realize how they altered things to make the reality that they already lived through.

The Aladdin one doesn't make sense to me. He wasn't freaking out because Jasmine couldn't marry a prince he was freaking out because of the resposibilities that came along with being a prince. He started to have self doubts because he didn't think he was capable of becoming sultan. After he defeated Jafar he realized that he would be able to handle it and since Jasmine could only marry a prince he was going to re-wish himself one so that he could marry her but of course he does the right thing and sets the genie free like he promised.

the harry potter one is explained. if u actually read the books you'd know that all the time turners got destroyed in the 5th book

If you watched Prisoner of Azkaban, you would know that the timeline already takes time travel into consideration. Everything, including running off with Buckbeak and Harry rescuing himself and Sirius from Dementors, had already occurred in the timeline before they traveled back. All the time-turner does is actually allow them to go back and ensure the events take place (and since they did occur in the past, that means they WILL choose to go back and cause it at some point).

In the Harry Potter one, they hadn't lost a friend yet, unless they were to try to figure out how far back to go to save the original Order of the Phoenix, which they didn't even know existed, and Hermoinie turns hers back inat the end of that year. Then in book five they accidentally destroy all the ministry's time turners when they are being pursued by death-eaters. Why other people didn't use them before that, is they were highly regulated by the ministry to keep people from messing with the natural order ie saving their friends who should have died

Not to mention if they used it to stop Voldimort it would just create a paradox since no voldimort means there would be no reason to go back in time to stop him.

The Harry Potter one, it is explained in the book, the only reason Hermione was allowed to have a time turner was because she took so many classes and she was an excellent student, at the end of the book, it is explained that she drops enough classes for it to not be needed anymore. Even if they had one after book 3, it is dangerous to let yourself be seen by your past self (Timey Wimey stuff). "Well, why not steal one from the Ministry of Magic while they were there trying to find the locket?" because they had no way of knowing whether or not the Ministry had made more (or if it was even_ possible_ to make more) after the entire stock was destroyed in book 5. Also, Harry Potter time travel seems to work off the same time travel mechanic as Terminator 1, where even time travel events are predetermined, and you can't change anything

I don't know about you, but I'm pretty sure that I wouldn't remember that much about a kid I only knew for a week for thirty years.

For the Waterworld one, wasn't it the writing that was valuable, not just the paper, granted paper was most likely rare, but the writing is what was used to translate the tattoo, making it the valuable part =D

I thought J.K. Rowling wrote into the fifth book that all of the time-turners had been destroyed in the fiasco at the Ministry. If they no longer existed they couldn't be used.
