War of the worlds is a classic story by H.G. Wells (mind you, it came out in 1898!) but how much difference that Steven Spielberg can make in 2005? That was the thought running through my mind when I saw the movie showing at my local theatre. Image source: Movieclips.com
After hearing about the movie and seeing that it got an “A” rating in The Star, me and my wife set aside our Sunday to see the movie. We arrived early and unexpectedly the crowd was thin – perhaps War of the Worlds was not everyone’s cup of tea, so we had the luxury of picking our seats. With 2 hours to spare, we made to Starbuck for our cappuccinos and my wife was asking about the movie, as it was my idea to see it in the first place.
When the time came, we promptly went into the cinema and what an opening it was!
