I believe in the original the ailens were thwarted by the common cold. Is it the same in this one? Kinda similar to the movie "Signs".

Bluntman you are correct with the way the original WotW ended. Judging from the previews (I have not seen the new movie yet) they are trying to base it very closely to the original. I wouldn't be surprised if they followed along those lines at all. After all that is how it is written in the novel/ original movie by HG Wells.

Re: War of the Worlds

I really liked the original movie (you have to factor in when it was made, special effect wise). I was very excited for this movie, although the whole circus act thats going on with Cruise and Co... is starting to wear my patience thin. Nevertheless, having Spielberg direct a movie like this shouldn't anything less then amazing.

Re: War of the Worlds

a year or so ago they replayed the original radio broadcast on the local NPR station. Supposedly, when it was first aired it caused panic and mayhem because people thought it was real. After listening to it, if anyone thought it was real then they were idiots.

You have to remember that it was in 1938 when they played that radio broadcast. At the time, the radio was the source of all news / entertainment in the home. There really something that was refered to as a SCI-FI movie so when they heard that on the radio, though its hoaky now, was convincing to the masses. By todays standards, if you hear it on the radio and you think its bs just turn on the tv or the net. You have to factor in the times...

But man would it have been funny to experience the hysteria the first time he read it.

yeah, and if I had been alive in 1938 and the radio all-of-the-sudden had real-time comms from fifty different military units all over the damn country I would have cried "bullshit"* and tuned in to some other show. Just because they lacked the technology that we do did not make them stupid. Or, maybe it did, since so many believed it. You can't place a damn telephone call across town without it taking 5 minutes and 3 different operators, but you can instantly get live, clear communications from the other coast?

* I probably would not have said "bullshit" but rather some equivalent expression of the day, such as "don't blow your wig, this show's all wet. I'm going down to tie up the dog." It's nice to see that along with our greater intelligence we've streamlined our language quite a bit as well.

Re: War of the Worlds

Murph, the world was full of gullible people back then and the Sci-Fi Channel had a great documentary on last night highlighting the panic that Orson Welles created with his broadcast (titled: MARTIAN MANIA: TRUE STORY OF THE WAR OF THE WORLDS). Of course, you and I would have "gotten it", but back then world was a much less "informed" place to live.
