Flurry O' Fury

Wednesday, June 29, 2005

We just saw War Of The Worlds. It’s kind of intense, lacking the subtleties of The Day After or 28 Days Later. Sure, Spielberg starts off with about 5 minutes of light humor and family drama, but then pretty much goes straight to 2 hours of near relentless mayhem and killing. Thumbs up! Way up!

It still wasn’t perfect though, lacking the gratuitous sex necessary to achieve 5-star status. It’s a rare film indeed that combines ridiculous violence with perverted filth to become truly ascendant. Starship Troopers comes close. Fight Club hangs in there. Natural Born Killers hits the mark. War Of The Worlds falls short of those magnificent works, but the sheer onslaught of bloodshed and wreckage it delivers nevertheless establishes the film as an instant classic.

Suffice to say, this is not a movie for children… unless your kid is the kind of demented psychopath who stuffs kittens with firecrackers – he’ll have a blast.
