Why War Of The Worlds SUCKED!!! (don't worry no spoilers)!
So I just saw this POS movie with Asian Chick yesterday....
A few Problems:
1. Why must the most advanced alien civilizations always
A. Set out to destroy us
B. Have the most advance spaceships, weapons, robotics that
can possibly be invented, but when they appear in person,
these advanced intellects are mumbling, naked insectiod
creatures that appear no more smarter than a T-Rex and no
less agressive (also see Signs, Independence Day and
countless other Alien invasion movies) I mean if they are so
advanced to invent spaceships and deathrays what the fuck
happened to inventing clothing and medicine and language
and books. :dunno
C. Go thru the most tedious way of exterminating the entire
human race of over 9 billion, one person at a time. So the
spaceship lands and the aliens come out and starts tazering
everyone to death one by one and hopefully by this plan
they should achieve full planetary holocaust in about 3 billion
years by that time the earth would already be burned up by
the sun. What about biological warfare...hello!?
2. Why must the hero be
A. Some washed up middle age white guy we don't care about
who spends the entire movie trying to bond with his
estranged kids, wife or father whiles an alien invasion is
occuring :dunno (Also see Signs). And we all know that his
kids or family won't respect or love him again unless he kills
the aliens and save the human race.
B. Some loud, annoying, hip-hop, black guy usually Will Smith
who spends the entire movie teaching America new urban
slang& trying to hook up with the only hot black or hispanic
woman in the movie whiles an alien invasion is
occuring :dunno (Also see MIB, Independence Day). And we
all know that he won't be tapping that booty unless he kills
off the aliens and save the human race.
C. The only one in the movie who is still responsible and
not running around screaming like mindless herd of
cattle. Which is apparantly what the rest of the human race
becomes amisdt all the chaos.
D. The only one out of 9 billion people who happens to either
figure out the weaknessess of this advance alien race,
figure out how to drive their spaceships and use their
weapons :shoot :videogame
3. Other Characters in the movie-
A. Are overacted by actors who do way too much
screaming or question asking for the most obvious of
answers..."Whats Happening? Is it the Terrorists?"
"What are those things?"
B. Are usually bitchy women and snotty kids coping
attitudes and bitch fits at the wrong moment when
the hero is trying to concentrate on fixing the problem.
C. Are fat, funny guys that get eaten by the aliens.
D. Are black, funny guys that get eaten first by the aliens.
Anyway...WOTWs basically re-made the classic (which by the way worked by building on good acting and screen tension between the characters and the aliens we never see), by recycling every commercial and useless plot devices ever put in the "Alien Invasion" formula for these kinds of movies.
In a way, much better movies that are very similar to WOTWs and I tought of these when watching WOTWs
1. 28 Days Later
2. The CUBE
3. Alien Trilogy
4. The Day After Tommorrow
5. HG Well's Things To Come
so lets talk about it.....
Whoa, that's an awesome break down. haha
I agreed the movie wasn't very good. The acting was good and the effects were awesome, but the movie itself sucked. Not to spoil anything, but at the ending I was just kinda left blankly staring at the screen thinking "what....the fuck?". Arg.
i liked it a lot :spin
Didn't want to go see it, because I know it will suck. Like most other alien movies.
what i believe is the best point. if this was in the planing for millions of years.... why not just take the planet back then?
AVP was a good movie because of the background it had to support it
Your all missing the point that it was based on a book.. the ending was used because they had to follow the basic plot of the book.
I thought it was a pretty sick movie... it was also a shitload better if youve played half life 2..
I haven't seen it yet. But from what I know, the special effects may be fun to watch :deal But awesome summary Delmarco! :guitarist
But still, I'll put it this way...
If Spielberg is gonna remake something add new elements to it not regurgitated crap that we see every summer in B rated alien movies...
At least make it intelligent....if Tom Cruise is gonna save humanity or his annoying ass prep-school kids, at least give his character some sort of dialogue that centers around stopping the invasion and NOT lecturing his estranged kids about remembering that he is their Dad.
Even the mob and military scenes in this POS movie were so contrived and done before...in much better movies like "28 Days Later"
I'm not saying that Steven S. needed to advert from the book to make the movie better, but at least throw some intellegence in there...
I swear haven't we had enough alien invasion movies where the aliens look like naked lizard-bugs...
A good concept and i thought this was where the movie was heading in the opening credits were we were going to be invaded by super intellegent bacteria/virus or mitachondria things that pilot super luminal spaceships...
As an avid reader and writer of sci-fi, I find alot of well written books center around this type of invasion plot....maybe Steven S. could followed up on that and made a better more original movie
also i didn't feel the effects were all that...I mean a ferry flips over and a few buildings get toppled...(yaaaaaaaawwwwwnnnnnn!)
In NYC we see that shit all the time, for real...
either via terrorist or drunk ferry captians.....
wow, your a regular roger ebert
I have a college degree in this...
I think all the aliens were described in detail in the book, so they had to be the way they were.
You really have to play all of hl2 to see the similarities, alot of the scenes and destructed zones in the movie looked and had the same feeling as the game did.
im not missing the point
its based on a radio play not a book.the play i have both heard and read. the original movie iv seen. just because something is based on an older belief doesnt make it any less obsurd ( kinda like religion)
