Movie Review: The Time Machine (1960)

In 1899 a man named George has invented a time machine, his friends don't care so he uses it to journey into the future. He stops off in 1917, 1940 and 1966 and sees nothing but war. Sad he visits the far far future of 802,701.

He meets the idiot Weena who is one of the Eloi, who are dumb flower children. They are controlled and eaten by the subterranean Morlocks. George has a hissy fit, punches Morlocks, romances Weena and decides to rebuild this post-apoc society with three books. This is okay leaving aside the model sets and overwrought musical score.

Best Lines:
"It was two wars ago."

"Which three would you have taken
?"
