war of the worlds

We just got back from seeing War of the Worlds. (Some breaks from studying are necessary, even if it seems frightening to take a break, working every second of the day is also frightening.) First let me say this is a phenomenal movie. Really amazing. For about 90% of it I was so totally terrified that my palms were sweating and my was heart pounding. And I've seen a ton of scary movies. I mean, really, this movie is so incredibly well done-- so close to the original book and so wonderfully filmed, I will have to see it again. But the ending crapped out. As so many endings to great movies do. I mean, jeez, Steven Spielberg, if you're going to scare the crap out of us while we watch people being exterminated/disintegrated/used for fertilizer for over an hour, then at least don't wimp out and give us a cheesy tied-together-with-a-bow hollywood ending. Please. It is a movie worth seeing. It is unusual to think of Americans as refugees. It is humbling to think we could all be blown up tomorrow anyway. Well, on that note- back to studying.
