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.

I always thought the T-rex pushed them off a cliff that was on the opposite side of the road as the T-rex enclosure. because i dont think think the camera ever shows that side, since its always focused on the rex.

Seriously? Don't you idiots know a T-Rex is capable of limited levitation? How do you think they got around that whole "I have a big head and tiny arms" spiel? Levitation, man. ******* dinosaurs, and their black magic faggotry

For the Buzz Lightyear one: You're on an alien planet with a vast variety of sentient creatures calling themselves "toys." You notice these toys freeze when a colossal species comes in and move them around. You see that the one they're around doesn't harm them when they're inside the room they live in, so you play along with the charade knowing you won't be injured if you remain still.

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).

As for the jurassic park one, the T rex entered on the Goat side, which was level ground, then pushed the car toward the other side with the wall. It's not the same side.

All the time turners were destroyed during the battle in the Ministry of Magic at the end of the fifth book, so none of the significant deaths could have been prevented, as they all happened either after or during the battle.

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
