Excellent Steelbook, Amazing Soundtrack, Good Family Film.
The steelbook is beautiful and maybe on par with the recent release of the Iron man steelbook (I think all Paramount steelbooks should be like this).
This may not be one of the best films out there but it is a good family film with some decent acting. I see people ain't to happy with the grain effect on this blu-ray but the picture does enjoy a strong film-like look thanks to a thick layer of grain that's maybe even a bit heavier than that seen in Minority Report and Saving Private Ryan. War of the Worlds does not offer high definition "eye candy" in the traditional sense, but it is reflective of the way the film is supposed to look, which is the ultimate compliment to any Blu-ray, no matter how rough around the edges it may be. The thing thats makes this blu-ray one to own is the soundtrack that devastates sound systems with a reference-quality DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack.
A must own for any blu-ray/steelbook/audiophile.
