War of the Worlds
I saw this last night, all I can say is holy crap!
Spielberg does it again, capturing the grand scale of an alien invasion. The tripods are huge, their weapons devastating, and what they do with their captives truly terrifying.
But this is not a simple effects film, it's a far cry from Armageddon. Spielberg captures the human side as he always does. These seem like real people, they're flawed and regular, which is a far cry from the usual perfect guy role Tom Cruise fills.
See this film, it's a great thrill. If you don't see it in the theatres, it's definitely DVD-worthy.
