Tonight we saw War of the Worlds. Not to oversell it, but it was awesome! A definite must see!
The last couple of years have seen a big jump in the number of remakes of both movies and classic TV shows, but in this case I don’t mind at all. War of the Worlds was done extremely well. This is one of the few movie reviews that don’t start out… “too long”, or “needs editing”. It will keep you on the edge of your seat throughout the entire movie.
War of the Worlds is not your typical shoot-em-up sci-fi movie. Without giving anything away, it’s much more of a… we get our asses kicked and how will we react, kind of story.
On our walk home from the theater we were talking about the story, when a few blocks away we heard the thump-thump of a car stereo with too much base. It had a surprising similarity to the sounds of the “tripods” walking. The sound actually gave us both chills.
