OK, I take back what I said the other day about Hollywood’s decline and lousy remakes and all. Steven Spielberg’s done it again. His "War of the Worlds" is spectacular summer entertainment, and the scariest alien invasion movie ever. I’m not a big Tom Cruise fan, but he’s excellent and winning as a deadbeat dad who rises to the occasion, and child actor Dakota Fanning is another standout.
The special effects are simply stunning. You will believe.
Spielberg’s craftsmanship is in a league of its own. This is the kind of moviemaking excellence that will keep Hollywood alive.
