Happy Weekend everyone, hope all is enjoying the
great weather we have been having. However, if you are inside, which you
probably are to be reading this, I have located two new early reviews for
War of the Worlds that both also gush all over the film.
Will War of the Worlds be the film of the summer?
War of the Worlds Reviews
I first understood that no websites or other media
publications could post movie reviews for War of the Worlds until it premiered
in the US. However, the latest update on this review embargo is that it
only goes towards critics / moviegoers who signed some type of contract
saying they wouldn't write anything till a specified date. Well, no matter
what the agreement was, posts are still going up for War of the Worlds
AICN, who have been the HQ of early reviews, have recently received one
more review for War of the Worlds and has gone ahead and posted one of their
own. Did they like it? Check out the snippets below:
One of the toughest jobs any film has this summer (or year) is not to be upstaged by gigantic mastermind Jackson’s King Kong trailer if it plays in front of it (those 2 minutes were, in two words, pure bliss!). WAR pulls this off and then some! It is absolutely exhilarating to watch such brilliant work from people who are completely free, at the top of their game, having no need to prove antyhing to anybody.
I'm so glad he kept the key imagery out of the marketing. It was so nice to see a big summer event film on the big screen and not feel like I'm just waiting for the bits in-between the sequences from the trailer and other marketing.
