War of the Worlds


JTC and I actually went on a movie date Saturday night to see War of the Worlds. Let me tell you, it was a seat gripper pretty much all the way through.

I'd been wanting to see it since we saw the trailer for it a few months ago. Then, after it came out, the reviews seemed mixed, so I almost flinched in my desire to see it.

Boy, am I glad we went. Sure there were a couple things that weren't completely logical (which didn't even occur to me until after leaving the theatre), but I don't care. John and I were thoroughly entertained.

Definitely recommend it if you're in the mood for a suspenseful, intense, well done movie. Spielberg has done it again.

PS: Check out the WOW Survival game on the site (theres a graphic link to it at the bottom of the home page). Crazy.

You had me at "graphic link."

Paige and I saw the movie and liked it a lot. Easy to agree with a lot of the critics, but was certainly a fun ride for $7. A couple of nice political statements found their way in, too.

So true! Wasn't the "grenade" scene a little disturbing. I mean... I realize it was technically the alien's mouth... but it seemed more like the other end. Talk about working under pressure!
