War Of The Worlds
Well, I just got back from seeing War Of The Worlds. Man, oh man. Man, oh man. That is one scary, realistic movie. Don't see it if you are squeamish or easily disturbed, and absolutely, positively don't take any little kids, unless you fancy paying for a shrink for a few years (due to the apocalyptic emotional intensity and imagery). Otherwise, check it out! You've never seen anything like it. The special effects are frighteningly real, as is the acting and the human response to the situations (violent riot scenes, hysterical panic, etc). One heck of a sci-fi roller coaster ride, and very true to the spirit of the H. G. Wells classic (I assume; I haven't actually read the book).
