This could become one of my favorite movies once I get a chance to watch it.

 

 

 

I watched it last night. It will not become one of my favorite movies but I still give it  :great::great:

 

Unlike the 1953 and 2005 movies which just covered the first few days of the invasion and the death of the Martians, this movie also covers the 5+ years afterwards. The Martian terraforming, which did not stop after the Martians died, has left earth barren which makes one character ask the question "you call this a victory?" 

 

There were three War of the World movies made in the 2000s but you may only be aware of the Tom Cruise movie. One of the other movies is a take on the Orson Wells radio broadcast but it's a breaking news TV broadcast. The other movie was so bad I've never finished watching it. Besides just being a bad movie they went cheap on the special effects. 

 

 

 

The Fox version.

After reviewing the lists posted I can re-list them but won't.

I will add a couple I did not see:
 

 

Sahara (1943) - WWII multinational soldiers in a tank lost in the Libyan desert looking for water and friendlies

but meet the German army instead; made as a propaganda film.
 

Flight of the Phoenix - wonderful 'survival' film, also set in the desert. With James Stewart;

who looks like he knows what he doing as the pilot; that's because he flew bomber missions

over Germany during WWII.
 

Great lists, btw.
