->''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndThePrisonerOfAzkaban [Prisoner Of Azkaban]]]'' treats time travel like this urgent thing: "We've made it to the past! Now we've only got a few minutes to go back and stop the dementors!" No you don't, you have as much time as you need. It's fucking time travel. If you mess up, just go back and try again. Of course there's time to wait, you've got a goddamn time machine. Do it tomorrow, do it in ten years. It's the least suspenseful thing imaginable, yet they treat it as the nail-biting climax of the movie.
