Note location $10 is cheap for a ticket they are ussually $13.50, on of the reasons i hardly ever go to the movies anymore, they have priced themselves out of lots of business in my opinion. Though i will go see King Kong, that movie looks awesomexli_ne said:10 bucks for a ticket? damn, thats pricey
Note that $A10 is US$7.60, and $A13.50 is US$10.20. So still not cheap by any means. I feel for you.barneygumble said:Note location $10 is cheap for a ticket they are ussually $13.50, on of the reasons i hardly ever go to the movies anymore, they have priced themselves out of lots of business in my opinion.

Blame H.G. Wells for that one!Mr. Anderson said:In the original movie, that's how the aliens died as well. You'd think they'd come up with a better idea or a twist on the it.
Agreed it's a classic. Actually (and just to reinforce my sci-fi geek credentials), whenever I'm designing a layout and need some random body copy I use the opening chapter of WotW.kiwi_the_iwik said:Gawd, guys - read the book! It's phreakin' phenomenal...!
Same in the '53 version - Gene Barry running around screaming, "Sylvia! Syllllllvia! Sylvia!" Buildings crumbling, people and things getting vaporized, eerie green martian destructo beams with the wonderful and scary-as-heck pulsating red ray beams firing every which way. The two protagonists meet in a church and suddenly bzzzzt... everything's quiet. Like turning off a TV. Suddenly church bells are ringing, some sappy song is playing, and the movie ends.MacAztec said:Cool movie, then it just sucked at the end. All the sudden the Aliens die, and they just say the germs (human bacteria) did it. Its like they decided the battle had gone on long enough, and bam, its over.
Oh heck yes! I've read the book at least three or four times now, and it doesn't get any less scary. I love it... The red weed in particular always gives me the willies...kiwi_the_iwik said:Gawd, guys - read the book! It's phreakin' phenomenal. Read it by candlelight... in the dark... it's eerie.
They make a brief appearance as Tom Cruise's in-laws they're in the film right at the end. You can't miss them.FoxyKaye said:Interestingly, it looks like according to IMDB, both Gene Barry and Ann Robinson (Sylvia) have roles in the 2005 War of the Worlds. I doubt I'd recognize them in the movie, has anyone spotted them?
