Movie review: ***The War of the Worlds (1953)
This is an early science fiction movie. It is based on an H.G. Wells radio program. The Martians home world is no longer sufficient for them, and they come to earth with the sole intent of destroying humanity and taking the world for themselves. Nothing can stand in their way. I remember watching this as a youngster and being totally frustrated as nothing the humans did had any impact at all. The point of this movie is sometimes prayer is enough; and sometimes the only solution.
