BBC is making a Victorian-era War of the Worlds

Post your views about what's on the telly-box (not about transvestites, unless it is a programme about transvestism, and even that is borderline unless there are also ladyboys).

Given the whole thing is an allegory of the horrors of Imperialism and the decadence of English society, I suspect it could clunk along with a few more strapped to it - after all Wells was a (sort of) feminist and a rather active advocate of free love and strong opponent of sexual repression. (His own expecially).

I suppose you could work sexual liberation into the story if you made promiscuity the reason humanity is immune to the germs that take out the Martians, but I think the anti-imperialism message fits more naturally.

Yeah, The worst thing was the Martians. Fucking Independence Day aliens!
Why does no one ever make the Martians look like the ones in the book? What is wrong with the physical description H.G. Wells gave that they think won't work on film? It says so much about where they came from and why they behave as they do, it clues the reader in on why germs are so effective, how they look is important! But the movies all think it's just meaningless details that they can switch out for whatever random BS they decide to pull out of their arse!
They're Iconic and we never get to see them! It defies all logic! Some studio exec says lets pay for the rights to make a movie about a classic, iconic and instantly recognisable alien species invading, and then lets not portray them anything like how everyone knows they look, we'll just pull a design out of our arse!
Would they do that to Giger's Xenomorphs?
Meanwhile on Dr Who cheap knockoff brand Wellsian horrors in saltshakers rake in millions... :argue: :evil:

I saw this on DVD and was not impressed, a lot of things happened off camera or in the background for no reason I can think of but to save on CGI, it was so bad it was like a radio drama in some places, and not in an Orson Welles kind of way, but in a you have to listen to the characters and use your imagination to know what's happening supposedly right in front of you kind of way.
Did we ever even see the Martians come out of the meteorite things? Actually see it? the meteorite things spun, they lit things on fire, they stuck to your hand, they were shown doing almost everything but have Martians come out of them! If people weren't already aware of how the story went I really think they'd have had trouble following it.

The Authorities were show as such stereotyped jingoistic numbskulls that all suspense was sucked out of the scenes where they did anything, you knew they had no chance of success when the film portrays them like that.

And George and Amy were the least sympathetic protagonists I've seen in a very long time, only thinking of each other and selfish to the core, I couldn't believe how annoying they were, both the Jingoistic morons and Martian bloodsuckers looked sympathetic by comparison!

The Book deserves better, I expected more from the BBC.

Well that's dissapointing to hear.

OT, but if you have Netflix, Season 2 of this is coming up:

I'm not a huge zombie fan but that looks quite interesting. Based on a web comic I see... so the Koreans can make a webcomic into something that looks like a Hollywood movie and the Brits can't even turn a classic SF story into something watchable... :?
