But seriously, I hope it's aliens. Aliens are always the shit. Giant evil aliens. I hope that if it is an alien-invasion flick, J.J. sticks it right up Spielberg's ass and says "This is how you do it right, buddy. Now go finish Indy IV...prontoooooo."

I did not like War of the Worlds very much, and I'm a huge Speilberg fan....but, there were still a few haunting images or moments in that film for me.

Namely, the train going right by them, the one that was on fire. That just stuck in my brain. And the whole scene with the raft. Felt real and scary to me.

Again, found the film to be disappointing, but, I still like bad Speilberg better than a lot of what passes for good lately.

Aliens would be nice.

Looking back on it, War of the World was lame by Spielberg standards, but it wasn't as bad as Always or 1941.

Now that shit was horrible.

(I might be in the minority who actually liked Hook.)

I'm trying to remember, but I don't think we've had a really awesome alien invasion film in a long time. Am I forgetting something worth noting?

Hmm...

The Arrival with Charlie Sheen was pretty cool, but that was from '96.

The X-Files Movie was '98.

The Invasion (Body Snatchers remake) is coming out in August, so that looks promising.

The Cloverfield trailer scored points with me as far as I associate shaky-cam disaster footage with haunting memories of September 11th. War of the Worlds worked pretty well for me, similarly.

I don't get the bashing WotW gets, though. Yeah, it was imperfect, but nix the crying little girl, the entire basement/homage bit, and it was a pretty well-done invasion movie. I haven't seen anything serious-toned in theatres recently that expressed such a hopeless feeling of dread for me, anyway.

One of the pictures has two frightened girls looking up in to the sky. Rumor has it that if you look between them, where their hair meets, you can see the monster.

Others say it's just a mind trick and it's just hair and people are reading too much into it.

I find it all facinating.
