Excellent!

The special effects are a bit dated as you might expect from a movie made in 1960 but the story will live forever. One of my all-time favorite movies.

Take the Time

Most fascinating story telling of the highest degree awaits you when you visit with this quality flick brought to us by author H. G. Wells and to the screen by George Pal. Well done gentleman and a hearty pat on the back to the supporting cast and players too. The theme of the movie is of course Time Travel which tends to boggle the mind if one goes into the details. If one stays on the surface and does not go deep, then we are only entertained but quite satisfied at that. The idea of being able to come and go through time raises so many complex questions that we quickly get side-tracked and forget to just enjoy the premise of yesterday, today and tomorrow and the mystery surrounding all three. You see yesterday gives way to hindsight of which we all have allowing us to consider what we could have done or did not do or shouldn't. Then, today gives us the moment or the present where we can begin anew and create, explore or adventure as we choose. Tomorrow tends to be the carrot of life beckoning but not being able to be caught. That's why this movie is a hit. Don't you see? It triggers one imagination to soar, ponder and ask the why and the how questions. Most satisfying wouldn't you say? I had a bowl of hot farina with nuts, berries, bananas and flax seed to further add to my enjoyment. find yours and travel well.

The Three Book Problem

At the end, George takes three books to help recreate civilization. This is a Science Fiction discussion of long standing, although not clear how George Pal picked up on it. The problem is similar to the one posed in the movie: The Martian. What knowledge in an underdeveloped world do you need to survive and prosper?

After eliminating books on religion, philosophy, politics, art, music and the like that aren't directly survival related, you narrow your choices down. Farming. Food Preparation. Basic Medicine or First Aid. Tool making. Wood working. Metal working. Stone Working. Animal husbandry. Basic language or reading. Basic Mathematics. Basic Physics, Chemistry, Geology and Astronomy. But how to condense all that or choose into just three books?
