07:57 pm: back from seeing The War of the Worlds with darkstream. was ok. i like unconventional films where the story gets told through normal people who don't really influence the big events, and this fit that, though i don't think the decision to have the Tom Cruise character take out one of the war machines on his own was a good one. but this was happily an isolated incident not related to the eventual "defeat" of the aliens. was worried that at one point the little girl was going to sneeze at the aliens, hence causing their destruction. but no.

special effects were absolutely excellent - i didn't notice them at all, which is how it should be. little girl who from the trailers appeared to be very annoying was ok. think sulky teenage boy should have died. there seemed generally to be too many survivors and refugees... but yeah, they didn't screw it up much.

so: perfectly serviceable adaption, but nothing really special.


tired. also very excited about the fact that i am going to see NINE INCH NAILS on monday! hurrah.

Who cares about Nine Inch Nails?
Pah! I wouldn't want to anyway. SO not intrested. Stupid pointless band.

*sob* Envy's so unbecoming. :(

Sorta agreed... although I'd still want to go to one of those concerts, just to see the dresden dolls live, who I believe are supporting them!

So, even if you don't like NIN (which I do), go for the dolls! dammit I so want to see the Dresden dolls!

Sorry, I don't think sarcasm comes across very well in LJ. I would've really liked to go. Was just trying to convince myself otherwise. :(((

Yeah, it also particularly applies when you don't know the person wielding said sarcasm. At least when you know them, you get a feel for when they use their sarcastic abilities.

Bah, at least NIN is touring in your sodding country. :P It takes a force of... I dunno, a force of something really really strong and dramatic to get decent bands to play over here.
