War of the Worlds

We know these are BAD aliens, because GOOD aliens, like E.T., make bicycles fly! When these BAD aliens so much as TOUCH the bicycle hanging from the ceiling in the basement, the bicycle falls down. And to show just HOW bad these aliens are, when the bicycle falls down, the alien kicks it, too!

Then we have the kid who won't shut up... until her dad is actually searching for her frantically and begging for her to say something. Not a word, not a sound... but that's because she was busy getting in position for the pretentious "Invaders from Mars" homage shot.

I was not just disappointed when I left the theater, I was actually angry. This is the worst movie I have seen in years. Perhaps ever. And that includes Manos, Hands of Fate. Like Manos, this film, too, particularly during the interminable basement scene, "laps itself."
