The War of the Worlds (1953)  Sure, it's not the most faithful take on H.G. Wells, but still a masterpiece that proves spectacle can be both satisfying and artistic. TIL: "Humanity was saved by the littlest things which God, in His wisdom, had put upon this Earth." Well, duh.

Still Voices - War of the Worlds (1953) "Men are from Mars, women are from Venus." - John Gray

Dad Rock Daily: Jeff Wayne - The War of the Worlds (1978) Prog/disco/rock opera adaptation of Wells' novel with Richard Burton narrating. Should be ridiculous, but it just works. Laudable Lyrics: If just one man could stand tall, there would be some hope for us all.

And finally, it's All Hallows' Eve, so over at  Aleteia  I'm taking a look at 5 Horror movies with a Catholic sensibility that aren't The Exorcist!
