Alright, it's upon us....who's seen it? I'm hitting the theatre tonight and will definitely get the convo started if no one else does....

C'mon bootleggers, I know some of you have seen it....what's really good with War of the Worlds?

**If you don't want to know what happens in the movie, don't read this thread b/c there's plenty of spoilers!!!**

^^^couldn't agree more....

Just saw it (4:30ish CST) and I really wasn't impressed at all....I mean, for what it is, it's an alright movie....plenty of alien sh*t goin' on, sh*t blowin' up, etc....but there were many slow parts to this movie and it just didn't live up to the hype in my eyes (all the trailers/previews I'd seen, I was hella pumped to see it, plus it's a Speilberg flick....)....won't spoil how we 'overcome' this attack, but it's lame....

Anyway, I voted 'disappointment', b/c that's exactly what it was in my opinion...

Independence Day >>>>>>(and I mean alot better) War of the Worlds


from RottenTomatoes.com: "If you like your movies safe and predictable, War of the Worlds is your kind of film. I recommend this one purely for the spectacle."

some things i didnt understand

1. what were the red vines about???

2. why did they drain peoples blood and spray the sh*t everywhere??

1. no idea about the vines....never got to understand as it was never explained nor hinted at....

2. I'm a.ssuming that's what was keeping either their ships going or what kept them alive....

My vote - Really enjoyed it; will cop the DVD




*** SPOILERS ***
The film itself was amazing, aside from the ending (see rant below). It has a high level of action and even some unique comedy (lmao@the scene with Tom Cruise making the peanut butter and jelly in the home). The ending, however, was very complicated to me. First of all, how did the barriers break? All throughout the film the machines had force fields that prevented all - and I mean ALL - weaponry a.ssaults. But in the end, birds were flying around and decided "hey, let's play God and break the barrier" because they land on a machine, and then Tom is all like "wtf everybody look the birds are God, so k!ll the damn machine". Seriously, could somebody tell me WHAT caused the barriers to be broken, and WHY some of the machines - not all - broke down?

I might have to go watch it again.. and pay more attention.

The Movie Had Great Graphics..but Slow Yeah With The Long Story..i Wanted More Human Alien f!ghting Scenes... The Red Vines Were Human Blood,, They Suck Out Our Blood With That Machine And Spray It All Over The Place... But That Wasnt A Good Move On Their Part Because They Died From Drinking Our Blood And Water,, Talk About Non-adaptive Aliens..haha

BUT THE RED VINES COULD JUST BE WHAT FORMS WHEN THE ALIENS WALK AROUND TO KEEP THEM LIVING MORE COMFORTABLY...

the vines were from when the aliens were taking the blood out of the humans and then fertilizing the earth from it.


if you didnt like the movie, its probably because you did not read the book it was based upon. It was to show how easy it would be for a far superior race to come and wipe out the human race. the same way the human race has wiped out a couple of species ourselves. For the person who asked how the aliens died, in the book they caught a virus from breathing in the earths atmosphere, and drinking the water, all of which has organisms and bacteria in it that destroyed the balance of their fraigle bodies. thats why they go back to the shot of the dewdrop with the bacteria on it. the movie took it pretty easy, Becasue spielberg wanted a pg13 rating. the book had the aliens consuming the bodily fluids of the humans after they k!lled them, and it also showed more of how the aliens tortured a lot of their victims. Every alien movie every made, especially independence day, was somewhat based on the book from whence this movie is made, although i think this is like only the second official movie based on the book.

A few to many holes in this some examples

1.Why when people were getting ashed did thier clothes still appear?
2.Why and how in gods name did his son live?
3.Why is Boston the only place on earth not destroyed to hell and Toms ex wifes house so ok?
1. I believe the rays only penetrated the human body and did nothing to the non-living clothing. ( Thats the best I can do... :banghead: )

2. No Clue

3. No muthafu*kin' clue.

The plot was shotty as fu*k, but the action was amazing. I would recommend seeing the movie for it's action scenes over it's plot, though I will probably read the book eventually.

^^^^^^^^YUP... I JUST DONT UNDERSTAND WHY THE FORCEFIELD WENT DOWN... If the aliens were dying the force field should still be up and running bec its all computerized... There should have been a reason given about how the shields went down, like oh bec RAY blew that machine up with the grenade he phucked all their shields up or sumthin..

they had that fluid in the machine...the aliens might of been hooked up in it... like that duck from ducktales i 4got his name...he would say something and the parts connected to his body...

It was a good movie....but there was to much stuff that didn't make sense....

If they were so smart....and built machines of mass destruction and planted them on the earth before we were even here.....you'd think they would know about bacteria........and how would all of them catch a cold at the same time.....and wtf colds ain't even fatal........sh*t was just stupid......I liked the movie up until the the end........stupidest ending ever......and the kid......he went with all those tanks and stuff and that whole area went up in flames....no way he coulda escaped......but somehow he does....gimmie a break.....



Sorta like in land of the dead......the main zombie......he's always in the front of all the other zombies but somehow never gets shot at.......fu*k movies are getting to far fetched.

say that to native americans

the movie is fun to watch once for the explosions but damn it got lame at the end. I'm really surprised at how many people were confused by the bird thing.
