Awesome / The Time Machine (1960)

Go To

  • The scene where George tries to rescue Weena and the others single handedly. Just when it looks like George is going to get killed by the Morlocks and all hope might be lost, one of the Eloi boy's from earlier balls his hand into a fist and well, needless to say he kicked some ass.
  • The eponymous Machine in the movie looked exactly how a Victorian time-machine should look — all polished wood and shiny brass.

  • The film has a scene where George is taken to the Eloi's library. As he's had trouble getting through to the Eloi, he eagerly anticipates that he'll be able to find out everything about them from their books. When he gets there, he finds books that have been neglected for so long that they crumble to dust when he touches them. He then mutters under his breath (this is the awesome part) "Yes, they do tell me all about you." It's also a bit of a Tear Jerker in a way.

How well does it match the trope?
