Top 100 Favorite Films | War of the Worlds (2005)
”From the moment the invaders arrived, breathed our air, ate and drank, they were doomed. They were undone, destroyed, after all of man’s weapons and devices had failed, by the tiniest creatures that God in his wisdom put upon this earth.”

So much film spam for today.
Hope you like movies! :p
Surely anyone who has seen this brief moment of color would fully understand how incredibly man can be. I once heard, “Words are beautiful and ugly all by themselves.” And the word “incredible” is something man is at times. The usage and context are all defined by the person you are.
The reason I use “incredible” is because of the moments that have happened throughout our history and existence. We’ve accomplished many things. All great in their own way. The collapse of the Roman Empire. The ability to control electricity. Man on the moon. The Holocaust. As time goes by, people forget these incredible moments. And like I said, it is up to the person you are to define this word. Some don’t care to think twice man has stepped up on the moon. Some think the Holocaust was a solution. The Final Solution. And it is incredible, whether ugly or beautiful, that moments like these have actually occurred.

The glint of color, and a glimmer of hope.
This is surely one of the most amazing and bravest things I’ve ever seen. Why amazing? Because it puts you in a world that you have never experienced. It lets you know that this world is the same one as the one you are viewing. It lets you know this is your home. Why brave? Because you see it. You see what happened once long ago. You see that this occurred. You see that this was little girl. With a life just like you. Filled with blue skies and breathing. You see she is you. A person. And you see that sometimes it’s just not fair.
Sure it’s out of a film. But that is not the end of it. The message it’s trying to show you is the horror of what happened on a daily basis. You see the incredible horror of what the Holocaust was. You see how this is now just another incredible moment in the history of man. No one remembers these people. They’re just statistics. Words in history books. They no longer are people. They’re just a moment that happened. And something most don’t remember.
