Corrected entry: The time machine seems to obey gravity, otherwise the main character would experience weightlessness in his bubble, and the machine would emerge in some desolate area of space after travelling so much as a second - the Earth, solar system, and the whole galaxy all move trough the Universe at phenomenal speeds. As the character continuously sees what's happening outside, we deduce that for every moment between the time the machine starts travelling and the time it stops, the machine is still present at its place, but "phased out" somehow so that it doesn't interact with matter, only with radiation such as light - if it did interact with matter, anything solid passing trough the same place as the time machine would have hit it. Now if the machine obeys gravity but doesn't interact with solid matter, shouldn't it fall into the center of the Earth?
Corrected entry: I keep on wondering, why did the moorloc leader fall for Alex's trap. Surely if he was such a good telepath that he could make Alex see things, it would have only taken few seconds for him to look in Alex's mind, see the trick and do something about it.
Corrected entry: Why doesn't Alexander use the time machine to go back in time and prevent Mara from being captured? The head Morlock says the reason that Alexander cannot change the past, prevent his girlfriend from dying specifically, is because that is what prompted him to create the time machine, thus creating a paradox. OK. The only thing Alexander shouldn't be able to change is the death, or anything related to it, of his girlfriend. Anything after that should be fair game.Charles Fraser
Corrected entry: Somehow the time machine always manages to halt travelling through time (even by accident) when there are no objects obstructing its placement, and at ground-level (despite millions of years of geological change). For some reason, future New York City built an alleyway right where the time machine was.
Corrected entry: The Eloi "leader" doesn't know the stone language. The next day, he is nearly fluent.
Corrected entry: When he travels trough time and watches his girl friend on a photo hanger it falls out of the time machine. He grabs it, but his hand leaves the machine for a while. You can see the photo age quickly, but so should his hand. At least some fingernails should be grown quite a bit.
Corrected entry: When Alexander goes into the ground to get the girl taken by the other species, he sees her top in a pile of clothes next to the butcher table. Later when he sees her in the cage she is naked from behind but when he helps her out of the cage after he kills the leader she is wearing that same top.
Corrected entry: When Alexander meets the computer (Orlando Jones) in the New York Library at the first stop he makes in the future, Jones can only be seen through the glass. When he is walking between glasses, he disappears. When Alex travels 800,000 years into the future he meets the same computer (in the now-destroyed library). But when Jones is telling him about his companion, who is now a skeleton, he reaches over to pat the skull. When he does, his hand travels outside the glass realm but is still visible.
Corrected entry: The little photo that Alexander has of Emma was in colour. Colour photography did not exist at the turn of the century.
Corrected entry: Watch when Emma is struck by the carriage. The carriage actually passes right by her, leaving her standing. the scene then cuts to Alexander, after which we hear Emma's scream. The carriage should be about 15 - 20 feet past her by this time.
