War of the Worlds

Very suspenseful, great mechanical alien machines (huge, like giant locomotives), lots of tension. Spent too much time on the Tom Cruise father figure, who in this film looks like a 20-something year old deadbeat dad, way too much panicking, yelling, stupid tense personal moments. Dakota Fanning great as always. Horrible ending (son back from the dead!), seems like a strange/weak ending to a tense film.

Strange movie about killing people that are jerks in high school. Tries to do something about the system, fight club style (blow everything up), but lacks enough cohesivness to make any point except; strange people like to kill other people. Pointless.

Dune 2000 (Part 1)

Nothing good to say. Worst acting, horrible choice for all characters, absolutely wrong personas (paul as a whiny brat? Duke leto as a emotionless zombie?), dated early 90's CG (really obvious), tons of missed opportunities to create either drama, atmosphere, or action. Achieves none of the above.
