    Re: GO SEE "WAR OF THE WORLDS"

    Yah I thought it was horrible as well.. They made everything look fake.. The special effects get old.. But of course it will get praise because it is a Speilberg flick..

    Re: GO SEE "WAR OF THE WORLDS"

    I just got back from seeing it. I thought it was great. The special effects were awesome and I thought that that little girl did a really good job of acting. Probably the best movie I have seen this summer but I really want to see fantastic 4 and Jessica Alba.

    For all those who simply hated it. It was a book, it has a cult following. I am sure the Director attempted to hold true to the original work instead of writing a completely new story.

    If you like the original concept this is a movie for you. If you haven't read any Wells, or you did and you didn't like it. Go watch Alien Vs. Predator or some crap.

    whats the difference between seeing it in imax and a regular theater

    An Imax is a very large screen (this one is 6 stories high), with a sound system that can shake you out of your seat.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    i thought it was dumb how the kid was like "i just want to see it"

    why the hell would you just wanna see it? i think if he wanted to see it.. they should have made him strap on a AK and help out. it just seems rediculous he was just simply wanting to see it.

    another thing.. the ending. wtf? the movie is cruising along.. and all of a sudden its over! it seems like it skipped 20 minutes of footage. they kill one alien, and they all of a sudden meet thier family and its over.

    the movie has the narrerator explain us the ending. how dumb is that? we should have been able to see the ending. not some guy saying "bacteria killed them" are we supposed to sit back and say "man, im so glad he just told me what happened, i would be pissed if we actually got to see what happened!!" i know there are times when a movie does not reveal its true ending, so that way you can make up your own ending, but this was not one of those times, because the narrerator told us what happened.

    All I am saying is it shares the ending that the classic literature does. It actually follows the book quite well. I was pleasantly surprised. Everyone is entitled to like it or hate it and for whatever reason they want. But it is true to what it is and what it was from the begining.

    It would be like being pissed off that Jesus was crucified in the Passion of the Christ.

    Yeah, but they were watching from afar and while they may have "understood" they still did not have the immunities they may have thought. This holds true (at least very closely) to the book and the original movie, so I would have been dissapointed if they did it any other way. I was kind of ticked about the son getting to Boston, made it a little too cheesy for me ...
    But all in all they did a good job of holding to the original movie/book and making the main character a different point of interest and the special effects are good.
    The whole point of the book was that we didn't know why they were here and noone would know and that is what made it scary ... we are so spoiled by having to have every "twist" revealed to us ... but I mean c'mon, you think if we were being wiped out they would stop to tell us why?
    Why? Maybe because they want the planet for themselves. Do you explain to the ant colony in your basement why they are about to die before you give them some RAID?

    I saw it last night all I have to say is Face the facts. It was a terrible movie. They completely ruined what could have been a great film. They never explained how Robbie got to Boston, or why the aliens have been planning the attack since before humans existed, but didn't take the planet over back then. I thought the ending was just terrible. If you can look past the plot holes and only pay attention to the speacial affects and things blowing up than yeah this movie was good. Also a super advanced species of aliens with technology beyond our widest dreams that had been watching to planet for millions of years... and they didnt know what bacteria was. STUPID.
    Im glad someone agrees with me! I thought the movie was horrible. Special effects are not "special" any more...sorry Spielberg, but movies need plots, not just things blowing up. I can sum up the plot in one sentence: Aliens are buried in the earth, they come out and attempt to kill all of the humans on the planet, and fail because they get sick. I was expecting a major twist and there ended up being no twists at all. Guess its on to Fantastic 4 for me!
