War of the Worlds Movie Review

War of the Worlds is a classic sci-fi story by H.G. Wells that's all about martians invading and wiping out the whole planet. This new War of the Worlds movie is bringing the alien invasion to a theater near you with Tom Cruise, Dakota Fanning and tons of eye candy. Is the invasion from Mars awesome, awful or just plain weird? Get the 411 from our movie review!

War of the Worlds - Alien Invaders and Special Effects

Brace yourself for an eye and ear invasion! The thundering booms of the alien war machines and incredible explosions and special effects in the War of the Worlds are gonna knock your socks off and nail 'em to the wall. On top of the alien invaders, there's also a solid family story going on with Roy (Tom Cruise), Rachel (Dakota Fanning) and Robbie who have to run from the aliens and deal with the whole world getting blown up at the same time. Dakota Fanning is especially awesome, even though she spends most of the time screaming in fear - but wouldn't you too?

War of the Worlds - Saving the World?

A word of warning - this movie can really freak out younger brothers and sisters. It's PG-13 for a gruesome spot or two, plus some totally nerve-wracking stuff and a constant barrage of special effects and alien monsters. Other than that, the biggest bummer is how sudden the ending is. It ends the same way as the original War of the Worlds, but this movie is different and the ending doesn't work as well.

War of the Worlds - DVD Features

The basic War of the Worlds DVD doesn't include too many extras, so if you're looking for a lot of behind-the-scenes secrets you'll want to pick up a copy of the 2-Disc Limited Edition DVD. It's a little bit more expensive, but it's jam-packed with commentary from Spielberg himself, featurettes about how to create alien life forms and much more!

War of the Worlds - Bottom Line

If you're looking for a popcorn-fest of a sci-fi movie, then War of the Worlds is a home run hit. It has freaky aliens, awesome effects, good acting and a whole lot of destruction. The ending is weak, but it's worth checking this movie out even if it's just to chill and watch the aliens stomp around.

    I thought it'd be cool for all the anime fans if there was a forum where we could find friends who like the anime we do :) Personally I really need some more friends who like what I do. Maybe you'll find someone who shares your love for something really obscure! Including manga too. To start off here are some favorites of mine: (just because one isn't here doesn't mean I might not like it too so everyone please share yours!) Black Butler D. Gray-Man No.6 Yu-Gi-Oh Seraph of the End Puella Magi Madoka Magica Horimiya Kekkai Sensen Free! Kyoukai no Kanata Tamako Market (especially its movie!!) My Little Monster Mekakucity Actors (and that whole music project that it's based on) Toradora! haven't finished reading/watching but like: (if you like it I'll make it a priority :)) Akagami no Shirayuki-hime Pandora Hearts Kyou Kara Maou Kuroko no Basket Noragami Kiznaiver  Bungou Stray Dogs The World Is Still Beautiful Ajin Haikyuu!! Aldnoah.Zero Princess Tutu That's all I could think of for now! What are yours? Note: No bashing other people's faves! Have debates/flame wars elsewhere. (Especially about Sword Art Online. Let's not even touch that)

    Finding Nemo, only because Finding Dory took awhile to establish itself.
