Oh. Realised again that this will be a critical note. Well, I can blame only myself (and partly my friend Landon): I went to see a summer blockbuster.
War of the Worlds is the latest film from Steven Spielberg. If you´re gonna see the film, you should consider skipping this note. I am going to reveal something about the plot.
The film is loosely based on H.G. Wells´ novel on aliens invading our planet. To give the film some credit, Tom Cruise is easier to tolerate than his current girlfriend Katie "Bat Chick" Holmes. And yes, Spielberg knows what special effects mean.
But the end of the film. A voice of Morgan Freeman explains to us (after Cruise´s family has miraculously survived the alien attack) that the story teaches us that the world and humanity created by God is stronger than anything and we should protect our way of living at any cost. Hmm...Any resemblance to the rhetorics of a certain political leader? And this from a openly democrat director.
Instead of the film I recommend this (takes a bit of time to download, have patience).
