YMMV / The War of the Worlds (1953)

  • Special Effects Failure: The movie's special effects were incredible for the time and they still hold up. However, when watching on an HD TV you can quite clearly see the strings holding up the alien crafts.
  • Visual Effects of Awesome: The film won an Oscar for them.
