    1. Nobody likes the dinks that say "First!" Shut up.

    2. The question as to what the opening theme is has been asked a million times, and answered a million times.

    Wrong again, it's Orlando Jones!

    On another note, keep up the great work, FB!

    That guy looked almost nothing like Will Smith, and Mathew CLEARLY said that it was Orlando Jones!
  • Kratos
    Sweet! I've been waiting for someone to review this movie!

    The song like many have said is Ready to Roll by Jet Black Stare.

    ANYWAY, this was an awesome BMB. Really good. Sucks that they totally ruined Well's work. *Sigh*

    Well, as long as they don't remake Back to the Future.

    "Definitely." "Defiantly" means "against orders" or "illegally."

    Also, you have to give this movie credit for its visuals and atmosphere.

    I saw this in theaters! Being a 12 year old kid, I loved everything I saw (hell I even liked the Resident Evil movie as a kid, and I know that it sucks). But I don't remember this movie being terrible enough to warrant a beatdown. I mean, this is in no way comparable to Beverly Hills Cop 3 or Steven Seagal.
    EDIT: Scratch that, this movie IS terrible. But the time machine itself is fantastic. Wonder why they didn't just go with CGI. Would have saved them a lot of money.
  • Limecat
    Come on! Even NC admitted that the Prince of Egypt was a good movie! And shut up, I LOVE Fievel!

    that was great, as per usual!

    and i want to know the name of the intro song!

    That's not how Leaping works!!

    And if you were going to do the leap, you should have at least done the "Oh boy."
  • alazr
    yeah this was just an okay movie. In fact the only reason I watched this movie in the first place was, because they did some of the filming in my city(schenectady). In fact they park they used was right next to my middle school.

    The only part I've seen is the part in the library with Vox. I'm glad I turned it off. I think the original was sooooo much better. The ubermorlock looked more like the wraith from SG Atlantis then the borg queen.
  • A7X4EV3R  - Yeah
    avatar
    I agree its kind of hard to miss the resembalance between the two
    On another note Awsome Beatdown!

    Matthew... how could you not make a Batman joke after the mugging scene?

    Eh, this was still a great review.
  • Lotus Prince
    avatar
    I was seriously wondering that, myself. I was waiting for something about either Batman with a time machine, or simply Batman with a dead girlfriend instead of dead parents.

    Also, why the hell did the character keep going into the future, increasing his distance exponentially? Try saving your girlfriend again so you don't go insane!

    Dear god, just about hit all the points I found wrong with this film. No depth or emotional complexity, just a generic time travel movie with a famous novel slapped on.
  • ThatGuyInTheHeadband
    avatar
    You know what's sad, I've actually seen this movie before. I also saw the 60's movie and own the book (well, it's actually a colection of H.G. Well's greatest novels, including War of the Worlds).
  • RyanKaufman

    Good review Buck, I remember reading The Time Machine. Well not really but still. Maybe one of these years someone should re-redo the movie and give it proper justice, kinda like the Hulk. Eh only time will tell.

    A lot of things irked me about this movie but one I remembered when I watched your awesome beatdown was that the Moon would have coalesced back into itself as I doubt the rocks were in the Earth-Moon Lagrangian points L4 and L5 and even then they're not big enough to handle large rocks. Also it must have been a TREMENDOUS amount of energy released to do that to the Moon. But I digest. Still a crappy movie which needed more jigowatts to make it better.
  • Hewylewis

    I actually kinda like this movie. It may not be a great adaptation, but it was a fun one. But yeah, I wish someone would make a more faithful version in the future.
  • moviebuffmel90

    I would have to agree with you on that part. It did have some moments, but still I guess it is best to stick to the book rather than go off and do what you feel like. Shame about the directorial switch. Wells propably had something better in mind than Gore. Also, it changes the tone of the feature as mentioned. All I can say is it's not the best, but it's modest. (Note: Decent is better than modest. Modest is half and half, while decent in my dictionary is the equivalincy of good.)
  • Alial93
    the same advice, do your videos shorter, but still loving you man you are hillarious
  • Sheranda
    avatar
    Why should they be shorter? He's not making these videos mainly for YouTube! Longer means more detail and more hilarity.

    Ohmigod, I just thought of something: What if Matthew "leaps" into Spoony? How would that affect their feud?!
  • vid3oman64  - re:

    ...Will Smith? Where was he?

    Anyway, yeah, that movie was balls. I'm sure his family is proud!
  • Stochatic
    Aren't cartwheels genually associated with positive things?
  • Mach
    Barrel rolls then.
  • TheGodEmperor
    I always loved the book, I want a new good adaptation of the movie lol, oh well, old one's still great. But I do agree, that one line from uber morloc was great.
  • LUrabbi

    This film was so bad, they couldnt even come up with a decent tagline for the poster. "Where Would You Go?" No one even rubbed two brain cells together to make it "When Would You Go?" like it should've been.

    Another excellent review FB. What a travesty, considering the brilliance of the source material.

    ...I like this movie...
  • Marvel Man 34
    I saw this piece of shit in theaters
  • jnywest

    Good episode. But I disagree about one thing. I don't really see the resemblence between the Uber Morloc and the Borg Queen. That is to say, i don't think that the film makers were ripping off First Contact.

    This could have been funnier, there were a lot of missed opprotunities for jokes, but I nit pick.
    :D

    Back when I first saw this movie I thought it was bad and back then I didn't even know that it was an "adaptation" of a book.

    One thing I noticed now is that in this movie the Über-Morlock looks A LOT like a certain Kain from the Legacy of Kain games. Don't believe me? See it for yourself.

    Hell, take off the brain thingy off his back, give him a sword and VAE VICTUS! You got Kain. :silly:
