The War of the Worlds (1953)

The residents of a small town are excited when a flaming meteor lands in the hills, until they discover it is the first of many transport devices from Mars bringing an army of invaders invincible to any man-made weapon, even the atomic bomb.


Great colors. Good for imagination. Despite the fact that my grandmother went to eat enchiladas with the mexican guy making a secondary roll in this movie in 1952, I gave this an 6!

Really good adaptation of the novel, special effects and set design looked great and the color was really good. I'm shocked that this isn't on more lists specifically the sci-fi list.
