War of the Worlds

War of the Worlds (2005)

You know the story: Invading Martians equipped with ships that shoot unstoppable disintegration rays attempt to overwhelm the Earth. Based on the novel by H.G. Wells (and adapted into a famous 1953 movie starring Gene Barry), this version stars Tom Cruise and Dakota Fanning as a father and daughter trying to keep one step ahead of the destroying Martians while humanity tries to muster a defense … any defense! Steven Spielberg directs.
My Two Cents: Spielberg is stuck in neutral; decent filmmaking, but suffers from lack of empathy, much like prior film, The Terminal.

NetFlix rank: Didn't Like It
IMDB Rank: 5/10


Robert's Two Cents: A dumbed-down bad rip-off of Shyamalan's "Signs" covered with a veneer of hype like perfumed shit.

NetFlix Rank: Hated It
