War of the Worlds…

…is probably the most terrifying film I have seen all year…

That scene with the car is probably the scariest…when they drive the car through the crowd of people and everyone attacks it -ripping the glass out of the windows with their bare hands. It freaked me out because, you know, humans doing the attacking now. You could just feel the sheer panic…

The train shooting past the station on fire also scared the hell out of me. What was it doing on fire? Did the aliens do that, or what? And the clothes falling from the sky- and the dust- and the bodies in the river- and the tripods. That noise they make. I think I’ll freak out next time I hear a car horn or anything resembling that sound. They were terrifying- I’m so glad I didn’t see any pictures of them beforehand.

I know people have criticized the ending for being too sentimental, but I swear, all through the film I was really, really hoping they’d get a happy ending. So I was really glad when it came, although I’d love to know how Robbie made it home. Guess he’s more resourceful then he seemed…(As for how the aliens themselves ended, I think that could have been done better…it seems a bit adrupt if you never read the book (which I did. Er, sort of. The ending, anyway. :p))

So yeah. Go see it. It’s good. :p

And in the spirit of LiveJournal, does any kind soul want to point me towards fics, or a commumity? I was thinking the potential for fic was enormous, really…

(Oh, and I went shopping beforehand…the LEGO shop does Anakin Skywalker LEGO keyrings. *dies happy*)
