Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/StarTrekIVTheVoyageHome'' has this as a complication -- the strain on the dilithium crystals during the time warp makes them start to decay, meaning the crew have to figure out a way to either replace the crystals or somehow regenerate them to have the energy to get back (or even keep up the cloak for more than a few days), in particular if they plan to get back with the cargo they went back for in the first place. They do implement a solution and with a fair bit of the movie left over, but in the process find themselves with ''[[TimeTravelersAreSpies other]]'' complications...

* This is the plot of ''Film/BackToTheFuture'' (also the TropeNamer), where Marty is stranded without plutonium in 1955 and needs to [[LightningCanDoAnything harness lightning]] in order to get home. The 3rd point makes several appearances in the series as well, including Marty messing up his parents relationship in the first movie and the TimelineAlteringMacGuffin scenario in the second.
** The second point is varied in the third film: the actual time machine part isn't broken -- no need to harness lightning -- but the ''car'' is broken in a way that can't be fixed in the time they are in, and since the time travel requires reaching a specific high speed...
