I finally saw War of the Worlds, and despite my concerns that it was about the war in Iraq, I think I can safely state that it was not.
At least, I don’t think the Americans yet have anything quite as nasty as these…..

And the same critters at night:

They’re really mean, and they frighten children and put people in cages and stuff. They drink people’s blood, and cover the earth with ugly red thready material, which probably violates EPA regulations.
Anyway, the film had fine special effects, and solid acting. I’m not even into science fiction, and I enjoyed it thoroughly. If you think about it, it invites a sequel, because the premise of how the aliens came to be destroyed might very well apply in reverse….
