War of the Worlds(1953)

Rating out of 5 possible lobsters :



"Mighty panorama of Earth-shaking fury as an army from Mars invades!"

Finally, Martians have invaded the Earth, destroying everything in their path, hoping to take our  planet as their own after they have wiped us out. I'm a sucker for a good alien movie. After hearing that  they are remaking this baby in 2004/2005 I just had to see the original which everyone seemed to love. Since it's from  1953 the effects aren't very special and the acting is very bubblegummish but overall it gets the job done. I certainly didn't mind watching it because of it's overall plot was terrific! Normally the 50s style acting is  enough to make me turn any movie off 5 minutes in. They always tend to say too much, too polite and describe  every single action like the viewer is blind or just got dropped off to the theatre in a retard bus! All that was was happening but like I said since plot was so cool it didn't bother me as much.

Basically if you wanna see a very cool alien story with lots of fighting, chekc this one out! The story is great and has a VERY cool ending. I wasn't expecting it at all. I thought humanity was fucked but things take a turn for the better in the end and all is well. It's the 1950s people... a Happy Ending... What else would you expect?

Can't wait for the remake!
