Wells and fiftieth

Earth, somewhere in the United States, the beginning of the 1950s. a Meteorite falls in the outskirts of a quiet provincial town, where nothing usually happens, and, of course, raises a furor. And when it turns out that the meteorite is actually a spaceship coming from Mars, are involved in the military. And no wonder — the aliens are highly aggressive and well-armed. They had everything ready to colonize the Land, which involves clearing of the territory from the natives. Mortal weapons useless against the Martians… Through this whole nightmare are two — Dr. Forrester and his lover Sylvia, looking for a way to get rid of the invaders. So in Hollywood of the fifties interpreted the novel by Hg wells. Wrote the script, allocated the budget and gave it to the Director Byron Haskin, offering the choice to spend money on famous actors or cutting-edge special effects. Haskin put on last and it has paid off: his “war of the worlds” looks fine still, in the age of computer technology.

The special effects are hopelessly outdated, but it is beautiful

Movies in the first place species, like any self-respecting blockbuster. Brilliant special effects, captivated the audience, drew him to the screens. Visual solutions is really gorgeous — look at alien fighting machines — Golden, shining like deep sea fishes and moving on the beams. Look like toys, but for those years it was a breakthrough. Unhappy please do not disturb – you have a Spielberg film. The film Hasina, however, largely exceeds his, and the actors are more vivid, the story more realistic, without the phony drama and pathos, which is the work of Spielberg.

And technologies silbergasse Martians modest – their ancestors from the fifties moved on the rays, and he himself took his feet.

Against this background, it was impossible not to recall the work of the founder of the genre. And to adapt the novels to contemporary trends in cinema in Hollywood were long ago. Here came the great wells novel to the big screen in the form of gorgeous blockbuster of its time. And was greeted with cheers. Most wells also probably would have liked this version of his book.
