War of the Worlds(Vojna svetov) - Science fiction by Steven Spielberg. HG Wells' famed story of alien invasion finally comes back to the screen, courtesy of Hollywood luminary Steven Spielberg, who's seemingly been waiting his entire career to complete the project. Everyone's favourite Scientologist/lovebird, Tom Crui-se, stars as Ray Ferrer, regular guy, who's suddenly forced to save the world. Dakota Fanning and Tim Robbins also star.

(literally) too quickly becomes a sloppy, by-numbers thriller. The premise of two strangers who find themselves chained in a dark, dirty basement is certainly interesting, but the subsequent plot developments, including some irritating flashbacks to familial melodrama and some "gritty" police procedure, suck all the life away.


Vanity Fair(Trh márnosti) - Drama by Mira Nair. The director of Monsoon Wedding focusses on the intricacies of the British class system with help from Reese Witherspoon, who stars as Becky Sharp, a poor girl who takes a job as a nanny to climb the social ladder. But after she marries her employer's son, she learns that social standing does not necessarily mean happiness. The film features an exceptional cast that

includes Gabriel Byrne, Bob Hoskins, Jim Broadbent, and Eileen Atkins.


A Lot Like Love(Takmer ako láska) - Romantic Comedy /Dra-ma by Nigel Cole. The director of the imperfect but charming British movies Saving Grace and Calendar Girls comes to Hollywood with this film, which stars Ashton Kutcher and Amanda Peet. Kutcher and Peet play two old college friends who've convinced themselves that they would make a terrible couple. But, as they near 30, they begin to wonder if they've been wrong all along.
