Damn you, H.G. Wells.

I wonder if the director of the new Time Machine movie is related to H.G. His surname is Wells.
Ooh, I want to see this movie, though. It looks nifty. I hadn't previously considered the added niftyness factor added by re-making a movie about a time machine so long after the first one - for example, when he's travelling through time, the point at which the directors must start guessing about what it'll look like is a good deal further on.
And just watching the profiles about it on Space is giving me ideas. Story ideas.
No, *bad* me! I have... serious... essays to...
...but SHINY!

The problem I had with it was that it was too heavy on the shiny, not heavy enough on the story. If they'd lengthened it by fifteen minutes, even--as long as those fifteen minutes gave Jeremy Irons a good deal more to do--I would've been much happier.

Could've been a very cool movie. As it was, it was light entertainment. Catch a matinee showing, if you get lower matinee prices where you are, would be my recommendation.

Oh, and IMDB says yes, Simon Wells, the director, is H.G.'s great-grandson.

Me, I still can't wrap my brain around the new politically-correct Eloi.

Yeah; I found that mildly disturbing too. I hate it when they "modernise" old things like that... like what they did with "new-and-improved-super-Arwen in the LoTR movie. That still annoys me...
