Typical Hollywood Trash

Hollywood Blockbusters like this are main reason why I find myself looking more for independent releases. This movie had so much potential because it had an excellent book to back it as well as Spielberg, but two things ruined it: Tom Cruise, and major plot holes.

-Why did camcorder still work after electo-magnetic blast took out everything else?
-How come only Tom Cruise's... read more

"They defeated the greatest power in the world in a couple days. Walked right over us. And these were only the first. They'll keep coming. This is not a war any more than there's a war between men and maggots... This is an extermination."

Yet another adaptation of H.G. Wells' oft-visited alien invasion classic, Steven Spielberg's War of the Worlds is a solid instance of summertime f... read more

As a big fan of both the original book and even the musical score, I found myself highly disappointed by this film. I knew I was in trouble from the off, when I realised that it wasn't even set in England. Ok, I thought, England always gets overlooked for hollywood adaptations, but maybe it will still be ok.

But no. Aside from all of the flaws mentioned in a previous review, I was u... read more

Review of War of the Worlds

“Contrary to Spielberg's customary treatment of aliens, the extra-terrestrial beings in War of the Worlds are not friendly. In fact, they're downright terrifying. Know what you're getting into before turning on War of the Worlds: This is not the fun, light-weight Summer blockbuster you may be expecting. This is in fact, very dark, very bleak, and very grim. But nonetheless, War of the Worlds- in spite of many problems- is a must-see.

Ray Ferrier and his two kids, Robbie and Rachel, don't get along very well. Ray is divorced, and he rarely sees his kids, so when he's placed in charge of them for a few days, things are difficult. But that all seems so slight when strange things begin happening. And then, the aliens come.
