War of the Worlds

We finally watched War of the Worlds last night, thanks to Netflix. I can't believe that the same people who brought us Minority Report have produced such a yawner. This movie was all about special effects, and frankly, they weren't all that good. Especially the eye thing, which as been used and re-used in countless sci-fi movies.

I was reading some of the reviews afterwards. Most movie critics are really clueless when it comes to the sci-fi genre. But since Spielberg directed it, they all pretty much liked it. The man can do no wrong. Some even had the audacity to compare it to Close Encounters. Please.

Spielberg has made his share of crap, and you can add this one to the list.
