What are you watching?

I recommended it to you I think! Its ok, I'm more of a 1st season guy.

Yes it was...interesting...but the book actually takes away one of the better things about season two - Maya's ability to change. Crackers. The season one books so far have been amazing ideas wise.

Less than 1/2 an hour into the new War of the Worlds...is anyone else annoyed as hell? For a start off, slow?! Then there's the unnatural reactions: a big light, bangs etc and they DON'T rush to the window? I hope it's going to improve.
Update at the hour's end: never seen anything so pathetic in my life.

2005 version with Tom Cruise, who can't act to save his life? Sucks.

Rather have watched that version...

So has the BBC version
"We're in the centre of a mystical convergence here."
 
One Spare Part
As usual, I seem to be hating what most people love. Fair dos. They can't win us ALL over. Still think this version of the Wells story is rubbish though but that is only my opinion.
It's just that, if they want to update the story why place it in the Edwardian period? Why not go the whole hog like the Cruise version and set it slap bang up to date? I agree Cruise isn't a brilliant actor but at least his version had the cages of humans under the martian machines and that IS out of the book. Why introduce storylines that add nothing to the actual story of the book? It was distracting, slowed the action down and was illogical. If they want to tell a different story, then they should write it ...from scratch and not hijack someone else's story to tell their own. That's like standing on the shoulders of giants and then kicking them in the face.
Well, that's got that out of my system. Wink

I agree with you that it was awful - though I had a strong feeling that would be the case since it's taken so long to get round to scheduling it. The storytelling and characterisation were both dull and lifeless I thought. I found myself hardly caring what happened to the central characters. Even the Martians themselves ssemed underwhelming and certainly didin't convey the feeling of terror to the audience. I shall watch again next week in the hope of improvement, but don't hold out a lot of hope tbh.
 
littlesue
Well. I sort of liked the War of the Worlds with Gene (the plank of wood) Barry with those fantastic Martian machines.
Then I got Jeff Wayne's War of the World's LP...and I'm still waiting for THAT version of the story to be filmed!!
I didn't bother with the Tom Cruise film...he can't act as far as I'm concerned.
Then sat down to watch last nights effort...with Mrs Poldark doing the opening narration...bring back the great Richard Burton!!!
So suddenly we have an unmarried mother with a degree...errr. Okay, so we have to appease the equality lobby, then that speech about the British Empire and then in come the politics...
The effects were good, but what was that wondering around in the red mist all about? Surely it should be the old red weed?
What do I know?
I'll watch it next week, but I think someone missed a trick here. Daughter Number 1 reckoned Jeff Wayne said 'No! You can't use my soundtrack!!!'
At least I sat through the first episode, unlike His Dark Materials; gave up with that about halfway through last week.

The only way Jeff Wayne's musical version could realistically be a movie would be if it were an animated film similar to Yellow Submarine.

Total agreement with you, Littlesue, with all your comments. Take alook on youtube: someone has married Jeff Wayne's music to scenes from the BBC production. I had to stop watching cos it was getting me so excited, I didn't want it to spoil my watching...little did I know...

Awful. Rather watch Tripods, BBC radio version better
 
rojkerr1
least they finish this one!
 
rojkerr1
they did with last Triffids too, must find a 'new' way to do it, trad would do fine!
 
briggsy1
What has happened to the BBC since 1970/80s? Is this really the same august corporation who gave us rich stories and characterisation in many of our favourite sci-fi shows back in our youth? Shows from Dr.Who and Doomwatch to Day of the Triffids and of course Blake's7 to HHGTTG. An inquest is needed into how things have gone so badly wrong since.
 
One Spare Part
They have got their thinking all wrong. They are trying to please too many masters. (Ooh a dr who pun?) Plus if there is no one in the beeb currently who likes proper SF, we don't stand a chance. It's never been really right since michael grade destroyed dr who. We need to march on the bbc and take it over!
