War of the Worlds

Aliens have invaded Earth yet again (as they are so wont to do), and it's up to deadbeat dad Tom Cruise to save his kids (including cute li'l Dakota Fanning). Loaded with more action and special effects than you can count, this one plays a bit like an intelligent version of Independence Day. It deviates quite a bit from the H.G. Wells original, of course, but its good to see director Steven Spielberg back in near horror movie territory. 116 minutes PG-13.
