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 novel, Steven Spielberg's War of the Worlds is an outstanding summer blockbuster which delivers p... 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 sp... read more

"7.9. HBO Uusintakatselu. Teatterissa oli aikanaan vaikuttava massiivisena spektaakkelina, mutta pienen ihmisen näkökulmasta ja enimmäkseen hienon CGI:n puolesta. Suoratoiston pikselöityminen ei ole vaikuttavaa. Kerronnallisesti määrätietoinen, ei tietenkään mitenkään erikoinen, mutta erinomaisen toimiva. Erityisesti ensimmäisen tripodin esiintulo ja tätä edeltävä jännitävä pahaenteisyys on ihan merkkitapahtuma, Spielbergin katalogissa nyt ainakin. Ei sorru selittelemään tu"

"The apex of what critic Matthew Wilder astutely pinned as the summery popcorn movies finally wrestled with the aftermath of 9/11 (along with Land of the Dead and Red Eye), Steven Spielberg’s relentless update of H.G. Wells’s creaky, pre-Cold War property often feels like a regression into the cheap safety of a zero-relativity “Us vs. Them” mentality. Which is exactly why it still seems like the most upsetting mass entertainment in Spielberg’s entire career. Stuffed with all the brutall"
