War of the Worlds


This afternoon I managed to catch the original 1953 version of War of The Worlds, hoping to get some "spirit" for the upcoming Spielberg's June 29th remake. Oh God! Lame lame lame! Instead of the earth destruction sequences (which is the MAIN point of the movie, but sadly only appeared in the last 15 minutes), there's a LOT of military thingy ("We've surround the invaders"/"Inform Mr. President"/"They are unstoppable, sir" and bla2). The effects were laughable, but were superb at 1953, where we haven't even reach independence. (It won Best Special Effects in 1953's Oscar).
