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

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

War of the two halves

“'War of the Worlds' had a lot going for it, considering the story, that it was directed by Steven Spielberg and a decent cast on paper. It turned however to be a frustratingly uneven film, with a good first half and a pretty lousy second half.Starting with what's good, the film looks fabulous, the atmosphere that the cinematography and lighting evoked is just incredible and the special effects are without complaint too. John Williams can be relied upon to compose a good score and he does here, being both rousing and spooky. Spielberg does an impeccable job directing the first half of the film, giving a lot of the first half thrills, suspense and genuine scares.Tom Cruise does a good job in the lead and Tim Robbins is eerily eccentric. As said, the first half has many great moments and is f” read more

Terror Blurbs! Pt. 1 (An Ever-Expanding List) (100 movies items)

"Plot: An update of the H.G. Wells classic novel, where long dormant Martian machines rise to take hold of earth. An adaptation that plants one foot firmly in sci-fi and the other in the realm of horror. However, it's the 9/11 metaphor that is truly what makes this one terrifying. Just strap in for the mandatory Spielberg "happy ending"."

"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"
