War of the Worlds User ReviewsMovie
The graphics in this movie were awesome. It definitely set it apart from the typical graphics we see in Sci Fi these days, which tend to look fairly similar when compared together.The bad:

Tom Cruise plays Ray, and the film quickly establishes him as a washed up dad. He's good at his job, but seems a bit lazy. His marriage failed, and he's not the greatest father to his children. He simply doesn't know how to handle ...
War of the Worlds stars Tom Cruise and Dakota Fanning and is a remake of the previous movie about the world as we know it being invaded by an alien force. This movie was okay but it disappointed me in many ways. Some things were very far fetched and didn't make sense (warning some spoilers). Like for instance there is a scene where a plane gets shot out the sky and lands in a neighborhood. Now oddly enough everything in the neighborhood is destroyed (houses, cars, ect...) except the only car that works for our lead actor to escape in.
Also another thing that bugged me was the ending, the en...
