War of the Worlds (2005)

Tom Cruise is an incredibly talented actor. Wait! Don’t vomit. I mean it. I thought I was going to hate War of the Worlds (2005) because of Cruise. Instead, I was blown away.

Okay it helps that Steven Spielberg directed this film but Cruise was not the annoying little weasel that we’ve seen in the press over the last year. He wasn’t a barrier to my enjoying this film and for that I am amazed.

The special effects are incredible and very believable. Try to remember back to the first time you saw Jaws and how real that mechanical shark seemed. War of the Worlds gave me the same feeling of uneasiness to the point that I had to remind myself that, this is just a movie.

If you’re like me and somehow missed this film in the theatre then be sure to watch in on DVD.
