W Is For...

My theme for the A To Z Challenge 2014 is things I’ve learnt from movies. Some are serious, some are silly. And some I was clutching at straws.
I’ve tried to find clips of said movies where possible. So if I couldn’t find a clip and you haven’t seen the movie… well you’ll have to take my word for it.

 W is for War Of The Worlds.


As Earth is invaded by alien tripod fighting machines, one family fights for survival.

What I learnt from this movie was that Morgan Freeman knows how to begin and end a movie (and H. G, Wells knows how to write a story). Morgan's not even in it (as far as I saw) but his narration gives the opening and ending scenes an edge.

This video contains the opening and ending narration however it doesn't have the actual footage (although as far as I remember it zooms in to the Earth during the opening and zooms out at the ending). The ending narration starts at about 1.15.

Not sure I saw that version although I have seen one. The radio broadcast was the incredible one where everyone believed it was actually happening.
