Well they just showed War of the Worlds on HBO. Basically, since I have never read the book... all i can say is... was the book as terrible as the movie? If you've seen the movie, you know what i'm talking aobut. If you haven't, don't. I'm absolutely clueless. Without giving away too much about the film, I must pose two questions. 1) How can such an advanced civilization be so stupid? 2) I hate this movie Seriously... stupid.... Wells or Speilberg should be shot/erased from history. I checked out the reviews and they say "an excellent homage to Wells". Thus, I believe someone needs to be erased from the history books. Or Speilberg should be shot. or both.
