I can't believe this still hasn't come to bluray yet. I'm watching it on dvd right now and can only imagine what a hi-def transfer would look like. The DTS mix is surprisingly robust. A lossless track could really rock the house. I still really like this movie. I have since I first saw it in the theater. I can't find any foreign releases or news of anything in the works. Anyone? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?

Yeah, I'd buy this. I really enjoy it a lot. I know the DVD has a deleted scene or two, but I'd like to see what else was cut out. I remember reading at the time that the sequence with the moon breaking up was cut after 9/11 to remove some footage, apparently detailing the destruction of New York.

This is a film people should be too ashamed for liking to put it on a wish list.

The 60s version at least was a fun kids adventure flick but I'm still waiting for a film which is a worthy adaptation of one of my favourite science fiction novels. This one went about it the dumbest way possible.

Yes, it has its (big) problems, but I liked it, it has a great production design (& you could say the same for the remake of The Haunting). I'd buy a Blu if it was a reasonable price...& I like far worse films than this one

Funny you should mention the Haunting. Along with this version of The Time Machine I regard it to be among the worst remakes I've ever seen. Neither seemed to understand anything about the earlier films and especially not about the novels these films were based on. They are about as dumbed down as remakes can get, trampling on every great idea of their sources.

Environmental message, check.
Molemen (er, Morlocks), check.

Seems like it did a fair job presenting the two basic themes of the original book. I'd watch it again (even if Jeremy Irons was beyond horrible in it).

Yeah, I forget all the details, but the plot made absolutely no sense in the 2002 version in spite of the good cast and set design. It was really disappointing.
loose="not tight", lose="can't find it, doesn't have anymore" or the opposite of "win".
their="belongs to", there="place", they're="they are", there's = "there is"
it's="it is", for everything else use "its"
then="after", than="compared with"
"a lot" not "alot"

I very much doubt that you have read the book, which does not have an environmental message, something which was not yet a political or socio-economic concern when it was written in the late 19th century. The Morlocks are not a theme, they are characters, but they do represent concerns about class, industrial relations and HG Wells' socialist views, which are themes.

I'm not ashamed of anything I like. I enjoy the original a lot, but I liked the remake as well. It's a fun action-adventure movie, and I'm not ashamed at all to say I love it and would buy it on Blu-ray.

A bazillion years ago. Ok, refreshing my memory of it a bit... the novel didn't have a "save the natural environment" message, but like the 2002 film it had a warning about worlds we create. It spoke out against our development of different strata of society and different classes of people, and showed how both sets of people could degenerate. The 2002 version is a simple warning about mankind degenerating suddenly due to our artificial environment getting out of our control. The film spoke out against the unwise use of technology, which is a more contemporary concern than the rise of capitalism.

There are plenty more versions of Time Machine yet to be made; I'm sure one or two will stay closer to the original 19th century subtext.

Fun fact: this was directed by Simon Wells, H.G.Wells great grandson! The UK DVD was released by Warner, but I think I read somewhere that it's now owned by DreamWorks who released the DVD in the US.

Default 1080p from bluray?

Hi,
There's still something I don't understand...
Since there's no blu ray release, I have managed to find it in HD by other way. I have finally found a MKV video named 1080p bilingual from blu ray!?

The picture quality is REALLY 1080p HD picture and is not an upscale or a 720p quality or anything like that. The sound is DTS 5.1 for English and Dolby digital 5.1 for the French track, it also contains English subtitles for SDH.
And of course there's no TV logo or anything similar.

So my question is the fellow, where the hell this ripp came from???

I have looking around all the popular place like ebay Amazon etc, I have try all others Amazon (Canada, France, Germany, Spain, even Japan...) and I also have tried places who have limited edition or exclusive for sale (like Screen Archive with Twilight Time) but I have found nothing!

Someone have any idea about from where came this beautiful MKV version please??

Dreamworks have the US rights. Warner have only the rights for international distribution.

The 2002 "Time Machine" has shown up on one of the premium cable channels in HD, and the PQ is pretty stunning. That said, I am a huge fan of the 1960 classic (I am 64 after all!) and while I enjoyed the first part of the 2002 version, especially the machine "beauty shots" and time travel, the portion in the future left me flat. For me, the Eloi and Morlock depictions just left me bored, and the whole "Super Morlock" bit with Irons seemed out of place and forced. Being a fantasy/sci-fi fanatic I will probably spring for the 2002 if/when it makes it to Blu-ray, but I won't be nearly as happy as I am now with the 1960 classic in my library!

I'm a big fan of the 2002 remake. It's a shame they cut down the Moon falling from the sky sequence (allegedly because of 9/11) - what was left was pretty thrilling. There isn't a single sequence in the film I didn't like - even the CGI Morlocks were kinda cool. Really hoping this makes it to Blu-ray someday.

From what I can remember, the editing is pretty bad toward the end in this version. I'm almost positive there are whole scenes cut, which would have filled in some plot holes. Other than that I enjoyed it, and would upgrade to BD.

Hey, I'm 27 (28 in a few days) and I prefer the original too! Great films are timeless.

Thumbs up Deserving of Blu Ray

I'm supprised this hasn't made it to blu ray yet?? Which begs the question "why?" I've seen many other B rated films go BR and this collectors treasure trove hasn't seen the light of blu ray? I own the DVD and watch it multiple times throughout the year. Please expedite production on the BR release. What a incredible film!!
