Bill and Jo Harding, advanced storm chasers on the brink of divorce, must join together to create an advanced weather alert system by putting themselves in the cross-hairs of extremely violent tornadoes.
A decidedly odd couple with ulterior motives convince Dr. Alan Grant to go to Isla Sorna (the second InGen dinosaur lab.), resulting in an unexpected landing...and unexpected new inhabitants on the island.
Ray Ferrier (Cruise) is a divorced dockworker and less-than-perfect father. When his ex-wife and her new husband drop off his teenage son Robbie and young daughter Rachel for a rare weekend visit, a strange and powerful lightning storm suddenly touches down. What follows is the extraordinary battle for the future of humankind through the eyes of one American family fighting to survive it in this contemporary retelling of H.G. Wells seminal classic sci-fi thriller. Written by
Ray drives a rare 1966 Shelby Mustang GT-350H, black with gold stripes. 1,001 were produced in total, with around 800 being produced in the black and gold color scheme. Also known as the "Rent-A-Racer", it was available for rent at Hertz for $17 per day and 17 cents per mile. An original example sold at auction in 2006 for $180,900, and since a crane driver would be unlikely to own such a valuable car, it is probably one of the many replicas which have subsequently been made, worth a fraction of that.

When Rachel tells Ray she won third place in walk/trot/canter, she is holding a green ribbon. Third place is gold/yellow for equestrian events. Green is sixth place. See more »
No one would have believed in the early years of the 21st century that our world was being watched by intelligences greater than our own; that as men busied themselves about their various concerns, *they* observed and studied, the way a man with a microscope might scrutinize the creatures that swarm and multiply in a drop of water. With infinite complacency, men went to and fro about the globe, confident of our empire over this world. Yet across the gulf of space, intellects vast ...

Wow this movie was great!!!!! "War of the Worlds" was a great movie. I really liked how Tom Cruise played his role in this movie, but also I didn't get some things in this movie. For example, I realized in this movie how all the electricity in their city was out and all the batteries went dead. I was thinking if all the batteries went dead, then how come that guy that was recording the scene with the camcorder? It shouldn't have been working. That did not make sense to me, but besides that little incident the movie was amazing. The coolest part in "War of the Worlds" was when all the machines kept reproducing the red plants. I also enjoyed when the machines would suck the blood out of the people and started to spread it all over the world. I also thought it was amazing how the machines came out of the ground; that was really interesting. I thought the lighting in the sky was a good way to get the audience to the edge of their seats. In conclusion I really appreciated how Tom Cruise would not let anything happen to his little girl no matter what. He always kept her close to him. After all I really enjoyed this movie, and I think this is one of the best movies ever.
