The Time Machine
The greatest adventure THROUGH all time!
Hoping to alter the events of the past, a 19th century inventor instead travels 800,000 years into the future, where he finds humankind divided into two warring races.

I wish I had a time machine so I could go back and not watch this film.
The Time Machine (2002) is actually a pretty decent remake, until the final 15 minutes completely derail and become something different entirely. Honestly, the action in the climax was so boring, It could be used as a sleep remedy.
Guy Pierce is awesome though.
Stars off good, turns bad fast, just when I think guy Pearce makes a lot of great choices with what films he stars in he goes and does something like lockout and the time machine though the film the time machine was made before all these films like iron man 3, LA confidential, memento and lawless it still counts its just not guy Pearce's is number one performance obviously so its boring characters and rubbish costume design also have something in common with its special effects but giuy Pearce though its not his best performance he is still good in this film and that earns the film at least one full star but definitely not a performance worth five full stars.
H. G. Wells deserved better than this. And so do you.
Film full of potential, but is an awful train wreck, The Time Machine is one of those films that has an ambitious idea, but wastes it due to the fact that the script is lazily written, the cast though impressive just don’t deliver anything great, and the film feels tiresome, strained and unimpressive. I really wanted to enjoy the film, and though the idea was good, the execution was poor. I really hated the finished film, and this a forgettable affair that is a pure waste of time. Don’t go in expecting a wonderful film, everything here is over the top, poorly constructed and just doesn’t have that spark to really make the story take off. As it is, it’s…

Pues flojita, como la recordaba. Un arranque prometedor y el filme se va consumiendo a si mismo.
The lost love is lost. Time can not heal such a wound. This love can be covered only by a new one. With time you get used to the pain, but you can not change the past. That's the message of this film!
* Main character's transition from eccentric scientist to action hero works.
* Klaus Badelt's beautiful soundtrack.
* Low on logic.
* Low on originality.
* The Morlocks look sillier than they did in the 1960's version!
Update of HG Wells-classic, directed by Wells' great-grandson, is not as colorful or exciting as the 1960's version, but it moves at a nice pace and there's still plenty of fun to be had. First time I saw it was back in 2002, and it has stood the test of time somewhat better than I expected.
Another blast from the past. I felt this film was well-made seeing that this dated back in 2002 in terms of CG. If you played it in the cinema today, you wouldn't realize it was made over 10 years ago. Dreamworks did a fine job on this film. I especially liked the fast-forward to the future effects. The Make-Up effects for Jeremy Irons was really freaky with its pulsating purple back with exposed spinal bones. That will instill in my memory a little longer. If this movie gets another reboot, I'd like to see the Morlocks get improved further in terms of character design as well as it's environment. The cave entrances looks way too 'Tim Burton' for my liking. Love the environment design for the Elois though.
This was actually worse than I remember. Some nice visuals, but overall its really really dull.
Completamente olvidable. Y se me olvidará. Creo que la he acabado para poder ponerla en letterboxd.
The themes of responsibility/fate are feeble. The dialogue is rubbish. Guy Pearce is bland as the Time-Traveller, and Jeremy Irons is preposterous as Jareth the Goblin King. There are thousands of plotholes (how can you learn spoken English from written signs?). And the problematic racial coding of the future society has been sidestepped by making the Eloi nebulously pan-afro-asiatic, so the Time-Traveller can turn up to be their saviour, which - I'm sure you'll agree - fixes everything.
In spite of these obvious moronities, I still kinda like this version. It's pretty short, and rattles along crazily without ever seeming embarrassed (even when it should be). It also serves up lashings of post-apocalyptic pathos: a decaying hologram, the shattering of…
I'd love to see more of these stories. REALLY entertaining stuff. If anyone has some, send away.
Also, anything mentioning…
I've always been interested in what other people are seeing and watching, and naturally, I love looking at Weekend Box…
