    Steven Spielberg's The War of the Worlds Remake

    I have to say after (finally) seeing the trailer for the flick before "ROTS", I am now psyched almost as much as I am for "Batman Begins"! So far, the actual look of the aliens is being hidden. I'm wondering if he's going with a "Jaws" approach?

    Various trailers online at this link!

    That is true. That's why I was so stand-offish about wanting to see this.

    This is going to be a great movie, apparently Cruise and Spielberg have been planning to do this for years now. Cruise will do a great job, he brings credibility to any movie, now if he had gotten someone useless like Travolta it would have sucked.

    "You know it's... kinda like `ol squares in battle like a, you see on a calendar, like the battle of Waterloo. And the idea was, the alien would go for nearest man and then he'd start poundin' and hollerin' and screamin' and sometimes the alien would go away. Sometimes he wouldn't go away. Sometimes that alien, he looks right into you. Right into your eyes. You know the thing about an alien, he's got...lifeless eyes, black eyes, like a doll's eye..."


    fuck, this could go on all goddamn day!

    I'm eager to see this movie. The original was awesome, and with modern effects, the aliens and destruction scenes could be cool. Hopefully the story will remain on par with the original.

    Now that would be cool! I loved how Jaws ratcheted up the suspense level by not showing the shark, until halfway thru the movie. I hope ole' Stevie will not fall prey to "look how cool my CGI effects are" mantra.

    I don't care if you are Steven Speilberg. Re-making movies is stupid trend. Is Hollywood so lacking in good stories that they need ro re-make old movies? Are we as the audience so desperate for entertainment that we will pay to see someone else tell a story we've already heard?

    Wither way, I'm sick of it. I'm sure I'll end up seeing it though. I'm a hypocrite, what do you want from me?

    I hope so. The art of suspense is dying.

    I just hope this is more War of the Worlds and less Independance Day.

    I may be wrong, but I doubt 90% of the "target audience" has ever seen any of the original releases of this movie, "Longest Yard", etc etc etc... So it's new to them, and brings in the $$$$$.
