8 Ways To Use Time Travel To Beat Your Bully

Show 'em.

If you had the ability to travel through time at will, what would you do? Kill a tyrant? Stop a war?

Or maybe you'd simply show your bully who's boss.

Characters in these eight movies chose option C, bending time to their will in order to get the last word. If you have the means to time travel, here's how you can beat your bully.

"Project Almanac"

Sometimes, you don't need to be the bigger person. You just need to dump two Big Gulps all over the jerk.

"Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban"

Warner Bros.


OK, so she didn't technically need the Time Turner to whack Malfoy in the face, but how does a busy witch make the time to tell a mean blonde wizard what's what and stay on top of her coursework? Time Turner, duh.

"Back to the Future"


Perhaps the ultimate what's-what time travel bully fix, Marty's parents' lives would be totally different without his interference. (And that punch.)

"About Time"


Is there any bully harsher than someone who knows how you feel about them and toys with your emotions? Lookin' at you, Margot Robbie in "About Time." Luckily for Bill Weasley, he managed to fix his fumbles both times as far as Robbie was concerned. LOVE BULLY.



OK, can we agree that the whole concept of loopers is about eliminating bullies? Because it is.

"Hot Tub Time Machine"

OK, so he didn't land it, but what can you expect in a situation that was brought about by an electrocuted squirrel and heavy drinking? If you're going to go down, go down fighting and soundtracked by Enrique Iglesias, that's what mom always said.

"Star Trek"


Listen, to the Romulans, Spock was the bully. All you have to do to get even is open up a rip in space and time, disappear through that, then come back and have your revenge. Simple.

"13 Going On 30"


They say that if you can't beat them, you should join them. Well, Jenna ended up joining the Six Chicks -- and then beating their queen bee later in life. Bonus: she got to go back again and live a reality where she made out with baby Mark Ruffalo a bunch as kids and never had to become a mean girl.
