War of the Worlds  SEP 22 2005  rating: 3.5 stars

I used to be a real stick in the mud when it came to big Hollywood action movies; I had no love for them at all. Since about XXX, I've grown to enjoy them for what they are and add them to my balanced movie-going diet. Come to think of it, the recent Star Wars movies may have contributed to this shift as well...after all, I somehow had to reconcile my childhood love of SW and the not-so-goodness of the prequels (well, minus Episode III, which I flat out loved and will fight anyone who says different to the death).

War of the Worlds, aside from all the tabloid crap that accompanied the film and its (nutball) star and his new store-bought fiance, is pretty damn entertaining to watch once you accept that it's a cheesy Hollywood action movie.
