In The Invisible Man, a scientist theorizes that if a person's refractive index is changed to exactly that of air his body does not absorb or reflect light, then he will not be visible. He successfully carries out this procedure on himself, but cannot become visible again, becoming mentally unstable as a result.
In The Time Machine, we follow the Time Traveller to the year 802,701 A.D.. He finds a golden race of small, soft, innocent people. But what is it that lurks in the dark shadows? And what happens when the glorious time machine is stolen?

Fascinating look at the hope of mankind to transcend its failings: human farming implemented with economic subjugation, division of the population into factions, and fabricated wars. Will man's evolution mature us out of mutual exploitation into true egalitarianism or will we as a society only develop into a world Potemkin village? As timely a read as it was in Wells' age.
The performance is well done. Personally I enjoyed more the second story as the first is well know and maybe watching movies with same topic diminishes its value.
H.G. Wells exposes the inner feelings, fears, and desires of man. It's a little like looking in a mirror.
The stories could be more believable.
Not sure. It's definitely period fiction.
The Morlok attacks.
The time machine is a great movie already!
