war stories

this is perhaps the best pre-review i've ever read of a movie.


"I am being guardedly hopeful about Speilberg's coming adaptation of The War of the Worlds. It's not even close to the version I wanted, which would be set, like Well's novel, in Victorian England and probably wouldn't have Tom Cruise, but this could be a fun film for some sizzling summer afternoon. It could certainly be as good as the George Pal version (though hopefully less Xtian). It looks gorgeous, but last summer The Day After Tomorrow taught me to always beware that which glitters, as it may only turn out to be the sun sparkling off a frozen turd. But I'm hopeful."
