War of the Worlds
Steven Spielberg has taken the H.G. Wells classic, War of the Worlds, and given it his interpretation. The classic Spielberg formula of family angst, aliens (this time they are bad) and a two hour chase scene, makes for a wild summer disaster movie. Instead of a tornado or earthquake, we have aliens that destroy everything and everyone in it's path (except the main characters, of course). John Williams has given us another wonderful score, and the special effects are top notch.
