coming in at the end here but i thought the movie was excellent. It kept to the original story very closely, just adapting it to modern situation. Though i will admit the under ground and the son were just stupid. The whole basement scene was like the parson and the artilleryman scenes brought together and i thought it was done nicely.
What really got me in the original was how when we fought back we actually caused damage and killed some martians creating a tiny bit of hope just to have it dashed when the martians fought back and crushed all oposition. i would have liked to see this some way in the movie. though it didn’t really need it, i’m being picky
