Honestly, I had some rather low expectations concerning this movie but since I always had a weak spot for Guy Pearce, I was quite eager to check it out. I remember reading the book when I was a kid and, at the time, I thought it was indeed pretty awesome. Of course, the movie was definitely not as good as the book but I thought it was still quite watchable. Back in the days, after doing the awesom... read more

I was actually really surprised because I thought it would be trashier then it actually was. It turned out to be quite engaging in some parts in a trashy sort of way. Like a trashy soap opera (like the Bold and the Beautiful for instance ewww) that you want to stop watching but you can't look away from. Could've been so much better though and Guy Pearce is so annoying with the faces he pulls! "Loo... read more

I enjoyed The Time Machine and its focus on simplicity and special effect instead of heavy time travel contradictions and fancy plots. This movie was straight backwards and forwards dealing with materialism and love - straight and simple. This was a feel good movie in a time (our time) of confusion, fear, and war. Too many critics looked for something really deep, tried to tear it apart because of... read more

“I enjoyed The Time Machine and its focus on simplicity and special effect instead of heavy time travel contradictions and fancy plots. This movie was straight backwards and forwards dealing with materialism and love - straight and simple. This was a feel good movie in a time (our time) of confusion, fear, and war. Too many critics looked for something really deep, tried to tear it apart because of its apparent lack of scientific continuity. But really the essence of this movie was human relationships and I thought the movie it made its point even though it took 800,000 years to do it. I felt with the characters. The only real problem I had was how a language could be kept so pure after so many years - of course they may have had help from a local library... :)” read more

"5 - Favorite Love Story In A Movie I'm not sure why ... but this short story is beautiful for me. This guy made for her a lot, for love. He traveled in time to save her. This is so unreal and also true."
