War of the Worlds!!! - BAH!!!

At first me and my FACES colleagues were all like super excited to be one of the first in the world to watch "War of the Worlds" but I just got home from watching it and honestly its the worst movie I have watched this year. Such a let down... such a flop. BIG SUMMER BLOCKBUSTER (So NOT!!!)... more like
SUMMER feckin FLOPSTER!!!

I am a movie addict but this is just BAD! and thank God I didn't have to pay a dime to watch the movie. Everyone was like so hyped up - no thanks to the trailers and the pre-reviews - to watch it and then Bang! - total crappy rubbish. Earth Goes to War! - BAH!!! It was such a disappointment and to think that it was directed by Steven Spielberg and starring the super hot international superstar Tom Cruise.

This contemporary shitty retelling of H.G. Wells’s seminal classic, the sci-fi adventure thriller reveals the extraordinary battle for the future of humankind through the eyes of one American family fighting to survive it. What they don't mention is the amount of shrill screaming of Rachael -(Dakota Fanning) who is incidentally has claustraphobia and needs her own "space" - in the movie and the stupid antics of the people like standing still staring at the alien tripods for a good 10 seconds before thinking... "oh, I should run now!" You just feel like shouting at them to get a move on but obviously they don't. Then there is the aimless people running around and more running around (like sheep on speed), more wailing and shouting and Tom screaming at Dakota to shut up.

Seriously a let down. Sigh... a waste of a good two hours of prime time. Could have stayed home and read a nice book curled up under my covers. Stupid Stupid Stupid movie!!!

I liked it.. :p We all agreed that it was worth the 10 bucks if I would have to pay for it. Dakota Fanning was annoying in it. Her brother was worst.. Had fun!!!
