Did Not Like It
27 March 2020 | by djbrown-00897See all my reviews

This is without question the worst version of The Time Machine. I have seen both the Rod Taylor and Guy Pearce versions and they are superior. The Pearce version is very much a remake of this film and if you saw it, you know there is a happy ending ( just like here). I read some comments, and one person said this is the worst movie version of a novel ever ( I would certainly say Valley Of The Dolls was worse, but that is not saying much. It is not all time bad movie, but it is not good. The highlight is Priscilla Barnes who is certainly hot to look at. I give it 2 stars. Both for Barnes
