Movie Review - "The Time Machine" (1960)

The second film by George Pal adapting an H.G. Wells novel, the first being “War of the Worlds,” “The Time Machine,” falls into many of the same categories as the other adaptation – Good effects, lousy characters, but a great job adapting Wells’ message about the strengths and weaknesses of mankind. 250 more words

A Fast Paced and Thought Provoking Read - 'The Time Machine' by H.G. Wells 

This short novella was published in 1895 but it still feels fresh and relevant reading it today in the current political climate. The plot is essentially quite simple – a scientist invites a group of men to dinner, he arrives late to this dinner in a dishevelled state with a story about travel on the time machine he has invented. 164 more words
