    This is such an impressive film that I've been wanting to see for awhile now. Granted, over time I've been feeling like... meh. Maybe it won't be that great after all, but I was wrong!

    Okay, granted at first I was really not feeling the film because I wasn't feeling the characters. They were all super annoying and I was feeling like I wouldn't give a single shit if they all died. But then I kind of realized, that makes…

    An absolute masterpiece of the blockbuster sci-fi genre. One great scene follows another.

    Takes the cake for most annoying actor in a movie ever. Not even Tom Cruise can save this underwhelming flick

    While this movie takes its share of criticism I thought it handled the remake of one of the great sic-films of all time pretty well. The martian attack, special effects, and overall story arc was good, which was only let down by Dakota Fanning's eternal screaming. The only other complaint was the abrupt ending, which could have been drawn out or explained in more detail.

    When I saw this in the theater: 5 stars. Now: 3.5 stars and only because I laughed throughout. You know the scene where Dakota Fanning was in shock and mute? Too bad she wasn't in shock the whole movie.

    People love to whine about Abrams and the lens flare thing but we've yet to have a serious conversation about how Spielberg and Kaminski have been over-exposing their highlights by three stops, pulling all the colour out of the picture, and calling it "art" since 1996. Maybe this is why I love WAR HORSE so much: it's the only time in decades that the pair have allowed a bit of life, some cinema, back into their filmmaking. 

    Doesn't stop Williams'…

    + One of the best invasion films. Plot doesn't get too convoluted and try to explain things that don't really need to be explained. Questions like where do they come from and why are they doing this have little bearing in this film and rightly so. The focus is on humanity, so I am glad the aliens were shrouded in mystery.

    + Great pacing and action sequences. The sequence with the car and the surrounding mob of people being particularly…

    Spielberg's CGI is better than everyone else's, but this a fairly muddled PG-13... Needed to be PG or R.

    Une excellente sci-fi, que j'avais plus ou moins appréciée a la première écoute... Oui, Dakota Fanning est un peu intense, mais j'ai trouvé ca crédible tout de même cette fois-ci (même si ca tombe sur les nerfs parfois). Photo, musique et mise en scène sont superbes; dommage seulement que le scénario a quelques ratés... La fin, avec la présence du fils, dissonne du reste du film en un happy end forcé et assez improbable. Le personnage de Tom Cruise (étonnament…

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I really thought I’ve seen this film before. But no. Now I realize it’s because it was always on TV and I caught a couple of scenes, not the entire film.

    Anyway, it was better than I thought of before. The script is quite clunky (e.g., such random encounter with Sheryl (?) and her kid at the harbor; Killing Tim Robbins character because he was noisy and then right after that scene… the script defeats its purpose. Yes, Dakota Fanning…
