    No WOTW threads yet? I saw the first showing this morning and I definitely don't regret it! If you saw it get in here and discuss.

    have none of you read the book or watched the original?
     
  9. It was a good movie. I was stoned the whole wau through and there were just some parts that made absolutely no sense, like the guy in the beginning using his video camera...why Ray didn't pick up his gun when the guy stole the van...and various other things that I can't exactly remember.

    I know its based off a really old story but for the love of god, I loved this move 9 years ago when it was called Independence Day. At least ID4 made some sense.
    You are telling me these aliens hid these huge tripods in the ground a million years ago yet decided not to take over the planet then? WTF? And I would also think they might have looked into the organisms on a planet they were going to inhabit. Plus why does the ending tell allude to God knowing this would happen so thats why there are microscopic organisms in our water? Man this sucked balls.

    I loved it. Some inconsistencies and things that left me asking "why didn't they realize ___" or "why did they do ___" but it was awesome overall.

    It never said they hid them millions of years ago, thats just what some dude said, he didnt know.

    They needed humans to fertilise the ground with blood... Which i guess made it enhabitable to the aliens...

    And American blood was contaminated with high cholesterol from fast food restaurants, which is deadly to the aliens. So, us being fatasses saved us in the end. :wiggle:

    loved the movie, brings back childhood memories when I first watched the original. I'm still laughing at how some people are getting all butt hurt about the ending.

    They were from the same planet :rolleyes:

    But yeah, it's funny how so many people (myself included) were suprised by the ending of a movie based off of a book that had already been made into a movie. I knew the ending was going to be ironic somehow. At first I thought it was the birds that were screwing up the tripods :rofl:

    I thought the birds where going to build nest on top of it :rofl:


    I dont see why the ending can be so hard to believe. Does anyone feel kinda funny/sick when you drink water from another country for the first time? I don't mean bottle water, I ment tap. It's the same concept, your body can only adapt to what it has been exposed to before.

    The bullshit I saw was that why would they plant machines in the ground before there were even people, in order to exterminate something that wasn't there. Why didn't they just take over the planet then when there was no resistence. Also, why couldn't they anticipate microorganisms in the water? Where they dumb or just ignorant?

    Was this the first planet they tried to conquer or had they already done the same to many other planets? You'd think they'd know to expect microorganisms if they had conquered other planets. And also, if they have the technology to build the tripods, even to board them from lightning bolts, you'd think they would be able to tell that there are bacteria.

    They might have needed all that blood to fertalize whatever it was that they were growing.
