After watching Spielberg's version which I thought was alright, I'll take Pal's version anyday. It was the right film for the right time, with COld War feelings and all

I thought the aliens in the original film were much better than those awful tripods in the new version.
I'll take Gene Barry over Tom Cruise anyday.
