Don't underestimate the power of amoebas!
Just came home from seeing the War Of The Worlds. My first opinion - it was good. I kind of chuckled at some rather silly parts, but all over - good. Then my program-mates started talking about it. Their opinion about the film right away was "it was great, except for the last thirty seconds". Their opinion on the way to the station was "it was a bad movie with good moments". When we walked into the house and the people asked us how it was, two girls walking behind me almost single-voicedly said "it was the biggest dissapointment of this time". I? I still think that it was a good movie, although the word "god" might have been said two times too many in it.

Now, it's been awhile since I've read the book, but I'll be bold enough to say the following statements. The movie was pretty close to the book. Well, I actually don't recall anything about the life of the book's lead character, but the way the war started and the way the war ended was identical in both the film and the book. And I think that was good. Other than that, the movie was captivating, kept me in it the whole two hours, it was moderatly scary, had enough violence and yet almost no gore. Very well filmed, and very well acted out.

Now, since most of the complains of the people were about the plot, let me say a word about it too. The book had some plot holes it, and didn't do much explanation about the end. Although to me, simply stating what happened was sufficient, without explaining what happened. But not according to all the people who never read the book. So I'll say this - if you read the book and didn't like it, forget about this film. If you never read the book, watch the film, but keep an open mind to a rather unexplained ending. If you watch the film and think that it was stupid how it ended - read the book first, and only then start dissing it, unless your opinion changed.

Final word: watch it, don't expect too much and you'll get more than you expect. Don't pay too much attention to the ending. And bleep out the word "god" in the very end of the film. There.

Хотела даже почитать и понять о чем ты пишешь, но...
никак не могу сосредоточится на смысле написанного (а он вообще есть? скажи мне по секрету) Первое слово которое выхватил мой мозг было most, да-да... видимо от мостов мне никуда не деться и даже здесь, в чужих дневниках они меня приследуют...
Зы: пусть и не в тему но не забудь меня завтра поругать :)

Смысл был простой - посмотрел фильм "Война Миров". Американцам не понравился, а по-моему, хорошее кино. Только вот последние секунд тридцать можно было и срезать.
Вот и всё. :)
