The Most Underrated Movie Ever

I give this film a 10/10 for personal reasons, though I think an average score of 5.9/10 is an awful joke. It goes to show the mainstream are as often wrong as they are right. The Time Machine has everything I love in a movie: existentialism, loss, abstract symbolism and reflection, mystical fantasy of the serious kind, bold adventure and traveling to the far-far reaches of the future, a beautiful and passionate main character, a powerful lesson learned in the end, and easily one of the best soundtracks I have ever heard. Listen to halfway through Stone Language. This movie itself is up there with Mulholland Dr.

Cheap Imitation of the 1960 Version

The special effects are understandably better than the original but the rest of the movie is almost a pure waste of time. Even Sci-Fi movies need good acting.

Everybody is entitled to their own opinion. This is mine.

I have never read The Time Machine by H.G. Wells, so I cannot compare the original story to this film.

However I can compared this update to the original George Pal Production with Rod Taylor as H.G. Wells.

And frankly I found that this update literally left nothing to the imagination. I found it cold, and shallow.

Simon Wells Directed, but Guy Pearce didn't sell his character of H.G. Wells to me. My imagination was not stirred at all whilst watching this movie, yet I've seen the original George Pal /Rod Taylor version several times, and each time, im hooked, my imagination is fired.

George Pal's 1960 original, with a superb music score by Russell Garcia, added to the atmosphere created in the 1960 original. You had a real sense of Time Travel, and future happenings with the George Pal version.

I give this update attempt 1 for awful.
