For me, while not a book or movie, the best time travel in science fiction, bar none, is the TV show Doctor Who. (old and new series)
I don't recall the author (it was someone from the 'golden age' of sci-fi) but a book called Farnham's Freehold had a bit of time travel in it.
"The Door Into Summer", I think that was written by Heinlein, or somebody again in that 'golden age', also has time travel.
Actually, a lot of sci-fi written at that time had time travel in it, especially in the short stories, it seems.
Some of the Star Trek stories involve time travel, if you have not already gotten into that.
Hmm, my mind is drawing a blank atm, but check authors like Robert Heinlein, Isaac Asimov, Larry Niven, Arthur C Clarke, Alan Dean Foster, Frederick
Pohl, Poul Anderson. They all wrote in the 'golden age' of sci-fi, as it has become known, about 50 or so years ago. I've read a bunch by all of
those guys, and sometimes it kind of blurs together who wrote what, so one or two of them might not actually have any time travel stories, but between
the bunch of them, there should be tons. They are all good authors, at any rate.
edit begins here:
Heh, I didn't even mention any movies. One of my favorite time travel movies was 'The Butterfly Effect". I would definitely recommend that one,
if you haven't seen it. If you are one of the few who have not seen it, "Back to the Future" has time travel, and is also quite funny.
I just remembered Ray Bradbury has done time travel, too, at least in a shor story called 'the sound of thunder'. There might be more that I
haven't thought of by him, or some I haven't seen, since I haven't read a lot by him.
