War of the Worlds

What can I say but what a disappointment.

The best think about War of the Worlds was the preview of Peter Jackson's King Kong.

I've come to expect more of both Steven Spielberg and Tom Cruise. It's been a while since either have put out a dud. I wasn't that excited going into this because I thought Spielberg could've picked a better movie to make. I don't mind seeing remakes of movies I've never seen but I'm pretty sure that the ending of War of Worlds is hard wired into everyones brain and we are born knowing the ending.

Even knowing the ending the whole build up did nothing for me. It brought back bitter memories of M. Night's Signs, which I totally despised. And there was a fat Tim Robbins, who makes me angry just at the sight of him.

I think you could enjoy this movie if you had just recently recieved some form of massive head trauma that will allow you to suspend disbelief of Tom Cruise as a longshoreman and all the other nonsense that takes place.
