The Time Machine

We recently watched the sci-fi movie, The Time Machine. I had heard lukewarm reviews at best and was not disappointed by the accuracy of those reviews. Based on the classic science fiction novel, this film seemed to have all of the sophistication of 1950s sci-fi with 1990s special effects.

The one effect that I found very cool was the geological changes that you got to see as the protagonist traveled rapidly through time. Unfortunately, this sequence was in the preview and the film didn’t show anything any better.

Like all films whose best sequence is shown in a preview, no one needs to see the movie. On my scale of 1-100, I rate it a 37.
