War of the Worlds

I saw it today.
Wow, it rocked my socks off. Has anyone else seen it?

Why did the vector cross the road?
It wanted to be normal.

Re: War of the Worlds

I've never seen the trailer. But the effects and the drama were excellent.

Did you see Tom Cruise get squirted at the premiere?

Re: War of the Worlds

I saw the movie a few days ago I thought it was great, the special effects were awesome and the acting was great. only thing I didn't like was the aliens, they looked to much like the aliens off of aliens, they should of stuck to the book for the aliens which depicted them better in my opinion.

Re: War of the Worlds

I haven't read the book before, but my mam said that the people (Ray, Robbie and Rachel) did not exist in the book.

Re: War of the Worlds

I read the book, it was good. And it is set in Britain. Is the movie?

Re: War of the Worlds

No the characters you mentioned arent in the book they are just in the movie. The movie takes place in New York, and Boston area. But even though it takes place in a different place the movie is very similar to the places that were in the book, as in the places they go, what happens there, the river, ect. The biggest difference from the book and the movie was how it started which was a dissapointment but the special effects made up for it. I would explain but I don't want to spoil it for anyone that hasnt seen it yet.

Re: War of the Worlds

I saw it with my boyfriend a month or so ago! Unfortunately we broke up the weekend before last or something like that! He cheated on me at a summer camp he went to over summer! As for the film it was very good but it was hardly a WAR of the worlds, i mean, it was more tom cruise running away for and hour and a half, he might have shot at something or chopped a tentacle off but that was it! Loved the aliens though, love sci-fi's me!

The music on the original soundtrack is brilliant
