The book The Time Machine and Hollywoods version of HG Wells classic are two very different views of the same topic The 1895 book shows how well an author writes while the 1950s movie shows how badly Hollywood can twist a time tested story The Time Machines two different faces are very spread in meaning details and events Contained within the book The Time Machine is an overriding theme of surprise and discouragement for the time traveler Meanwhile in the film the Time traveler seems preoccupied with a single Eloi rather than with what the future holds The book also shows the Time traveler as being a person solely concerned with the rescue of the time machine and leaving from the future world The movie portrays the time traveler as the Elois savior a person who fights against the Morlocks to save the human race not to get back to the past The book and movie are very different when one considers the overriding themes in both One of the main differences between the book and movie both supposedly based on the book is the details of many events In the book the Eloi do not speak English the Morlocks are white the time traveler travels to the palace of green porcelain to get weapons and camphor and finally the Eloi are completely complacent they never fight the Morlocks Meanwhile in the movie the Eloi not only speak English but can understand the time traveler and the more complicated speech that Time Traveler uses The Morlocks are a light blue and the Time Traveler simply picks up a club to fight the Morlocks Finally the Eloi take up the fight against the Morlocks eventually destroying the Morlocks underground tunnels The details of the book and movie show that Hollywood never even looked at the book yet tried to paint the Eloi and Morlocks as each others nemesis The largest difference that one may see between
