War of the Worlds
War of the Worlds: Directed by Steven Spielberg. With Tom Cruise, Dakota Fanning, Miranda Otto, Justin Chatwin. An alien invasion threatens the future of humanity. The catastrophic nightmare is depicted through the eyes of one American family fighting for survival.
After getting home from seeing the latest “Top Gun” film, Netflix suggested that I watch “War of the Worlds”, which I remember as being a fine movie, but that there’s been a couple better made adaptations of the story in recent memory from 2019 period piece mini series to the 2019 ongoing modern series. I also remember that I had some big complaints about the amount of screaming in the film from a young Dakota Fanning, which still holds up as a grudge I have against the movie, it’s a minor complaint in comparison to the weight of film itself and I would only make it since it’s an easy nit to pick. Something that I do have a major complaint about is the quality of the stream, I’m not sure if the film has always been this muddy or if it was something with Netflix, but I felt like I had Vaseline on my glasses for the entire movie.
I did laugh a small sad laugh when the first reports of weird stuff going on are from “the Ukraine”.
