    I have just been told that The Time Machine remake is a bit slow, can anyone comment please? I was thinking of ordering the R1 version out next month.

    Cheers

    I think Jonathan Ross says the original is the best, and the remake more or less follow the original plot.
    Also the original has just come out on DVD and has been cleaned up. There should be a post on it in the DVD Talk.

    Good rule of thumb for all movies. If a movie is remade... go see the original, and forget about the remake. There are a few exceptions to this rule, but not many.

    Saw it last night. The worst 90 minutes of my life.

    Nothing good to say about it. Unfortunatly not enough of Miss Mumba to get excited about and the rest of it was pants.

    Havn't seen the original to compare but i can't be worse than this.

    I think this beats Zoolander and my least favourite film this year.

    I agree. The book is on another level.

    From what I remember of the book, it still does not say what books he took to the future.
    There is a modern day sequel book to the original Time Machine book, but I did not enjoy it one bit.
    There is also a sequel to the Day Of The Triffids, which is not bad.

    Hope you enjoy the film Timh, you will have to give us a review if it.

    Forget slow. It's just plain bad.
    Really bad.

    And no, it's not worth seeing for Samantha Mumba.

    I saw it the other night and was not impressed. I think children will like it if they have not seen the original. *sheepish grin*
