War of the Worlds

Despite my better judgment, I went to see "War of the Worlds". I didn't want to see it because, honestly, I think Tom Cruise has lost his mind, and is totally brainwashed by the cult of Scientology. I have no desire to give them any more money. However, my old friend Seth Shostak asked if I'd watch it and comment on it on his Are We Alone? radio show, so I went to see it.

I actually enjoyed it, for the most part. I won't go into details here on the BABlog since I have a lengthy review of it on the main site. The bottom line: not a bad flick, could use some serious improvements, but it was very tense and exciting.

I still miss Clayton Forrester, though. He's top man in nuclear and astrophysics! He knows all about meteors!
