Overheard: War of the Worlds edition

Warning: Movie spoiler ahead

Well, not really, but if you’re a stickler for not knowing anything about a movie in advance, don’t say I didn’t warn you. So I went to see WotW by myself Sunday and as always, sat directly in front of the stupid couple that have to explain every single scene to each other. Some examples of the inanity:

Scene: Tom Cruise is playing catch with his son. His son hates him, and not just because he is a scene-stealing, cradle-robbing Scientologist. So Tom throws him a fast ball, and he steps aside to make sure it hits Tom’s window.
Response: “I think he did that on purpose!”

Scene: Alien ships begin to ascend from under the earth.
Response: “Ah, here come the construction workers. They must have found some clues underground.”

Scene: Rays from the alien ships incinerate humans on contact.
Response: “Those people just รขโ‚ฌยฆ disappeared! What the hell?”

Scene: The aliens are finally seen and they have three legs, just like their ships.
Response: “Hey, check it out. That one is missin’ a leg!”

  1. I can imagine if these people were watching Star Wars.

    “Father? Vader is Luke’s fath–no fucking way”

    “Watch, this is hella cool! Obi-Wan cuts off Anakin’s legs and they go on fire!”

    “I wonder why Vader is being so harsh to his daughter [in Episode 4]”.

  2. When I went to see episode III, I heard some wow-ing and gasping when Amidala said she was preagnant, and also when the “doctor” said they where twins, and also when anakin became darth vader.

    I mean, what the fuck was that?!?! you didn’t know?!!?

    :: Bulletin ::
    or why Tv & Movies make us smarter
    Popular culture on average grown more complex in the past 30 years or so.
    Complexity in movies and Tv involves three primary elements-
    a/multiple threading
    b/flashing arrows
    c/social networks

    Multiple threading is regarded as the most acclaimed structural convention of modern programming and first reared it’s head in the classic Hill Street Blues where for the first time we had more than one thread or plot line running through the show.

    Prior to this we had single thread shows ala I love Lucy, Starsky & Hutch etc etc, movies also adhered to this tried & true method.

    What does all this mean?

    simple people were thought to not be able to think for themselves and read between the lines as it were, this was how it was.

    times have changed and so has the public perception or mental state when viewing Tv shows or films.

    we now have shows like the Sopranos for example who have multiple threads with layer upon layer of story lines running seemingly forever.

    how does any of this relate to todays comments?

    we now expect to have many threads/topics running through episodes/movies, case in point 24

    old george lucas has kept to the old format of putting in sign posts or arrows within the script so that people would go “…oh yeah right, twins….”

    I suppose it fits in with the original Star Wars which is now 30 years old.

    the upshot of all this rambling is this, we are as a whole, a trifle smarter than we were 20-30 years ago and therefore when little things likt the sign post about the twins comes up, people are acutely aware of them.

    end bulletin

    booyah anna!! :thong:


  8. Like, now, I so totally don’t even need to see the movie after reading this post. Thanks for saving me $8.50, Dave!:grin:

  9. I saw WotW over the weekend as well! Here are my favourite quotes from the movie:

    Nasty Alien: Ever put your life in a man’s hands or asked him to put his life in yours?
    Tom Cruise: No, sir.
    Nasty Alien: We follow orders, son. We follow orders or people die. It’s that simple. Are we clear?
    Tom Cruise: Yes, sir.
    Nasty Alien: ARE WE CLEAR?
    Tom Cruise: Crystal.

    Tom Cruise: [narrating] The dream is always the same. Instead of going home, I go to the neighbors. I knock, but no one seems to be there, so I go inside.

    Tom Cruise: I feel the need…
    Tom Cruise, Nasty Alien: …the need for speed!

    [In a telephone booth with the door closed]
    Nasty Alien: Uh oh fart. Uh oh fart.
    Tom Cruise: Did you fart, Al? Did you fucking fart?
    Nasty Alien: Fart.
    Tom Cruise: [Trying unsuccessfully to open the door] How can you stand that?
    Nasty Alien: I don’t mind it.
    Tom Cruise: How can you stand it?
    Nasty Alien: Ten minutes to Wapner. We’re definitely locked in this box with no TV

    [Nasty Alien has just told Tom Cruise he will keep him as his agent]
    Tom Cruise: That’s great. I’m very… happy.
    Nasty Alien: That’s what I’m gonna do for you. God bless you, Tommy. Now this is what you’re gonna do for me. You listening?
    Tom Cruise: Yeah, yeah, what can I do for YOU, Al?
    Nasty Alien: It’s a very personal, very important thing. Hell, it’s a family motto. Now are you ready? Just checking to make sure you’re ready (Al turns his death ray real low) here it is – show me the Death Ray. (He now blasts the death ray at full level) OHHH! SHOW! ME! THE! Death Ray! Doesn’t it make you feel good just to say that, Tommy? Say it with me one time brother!
    Tom Cruise: …Show you the Death Ray.
    Nasty Alien: Oh, come on, you can do better than that! I want you to say it brother with meaning! Hey, I got Bob Sugar on the other line I better hear you say it!
    Tom Cruise: Yeah, ye – no, show you the Death Ray!
    Nasty Alien: AH! Not show YOU! Show ME the Death Ray!
    Tom Cruise: Show me the Death Ray!
    Nasty Alien: Yeah, that’s it brother but you got to yell that shit!
    Tom Cruise: Show me the Death Ray!
    Nasty Alien: Louder!
    Tom Cruise: Show me the Death Ray!

    What a great fuckin’ movie!
