@ #10: Taking a page from Doctor Who, it would be disastrous to cross your own timeline. Also you have to live through the time you went back to.   
So in effort the current you would cease to exist the moment your past self saw your current self (In this case you being Harry) because since that event hadn't happened in your original timeline, your timeline would change and the current you would be non-existent. Of course there is ways to make sure you (past) don't see yourself (current), but again you would have to live in hiding until the moment you (past) goes into the past. Effectively taking off that much time from your life.   
   
tl;dr Don't go back in time to change your own timeline

...i'll give this a try

1. maybe the whole "come to life" thing only works when no one is noticing (except for rare ocassions)

2. because there IS a chance that the child will grow up to look similar to their parent

3. there are other things you can roll cigs with, and water alone doesn't do much to clean dirt

The Santa Clause one always annoyed the **** out of me. It happens in every "Kids should believe in Santa" movie. It's ******* retarded.

Waterworld #3:
1. maybe the cigarettes were the reason it was valuable? Because they could use it to make more cigarettes? Or maybe the cigarette paper was too thin to be valuable, like how 24k jewelry is ******** of cash, but 10k is near nothing.
2. all of the water is saltwater, meaning that all freshwater sources on the planet have been eliminated. The only way they can get water is to:
-collect it after a storm
-recycle urine
-drink animal blood

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.

The 'The Santa Clause' one applies to pretty much any Santa movie.

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.

*5 Aladdin
Now, what I'm about to say is under the assumption that whoever made this is wondering where one of the wishes went. When Aladdin is thrown into the water, Genie says something along the lines of, "AL! Just wish yourself back on land!" But Aladdin can't, because his mouth is gagged. Genie then says, "I'll take that as a wish!" And transports him to land.

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

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
