    I've only seen the TV trailers, but War of the Worlds looks pretty good. I'm not yet sold Cruise should be the lead actor, but I'll withhold judgement until I see the show.

    What do you think is the minimum caliber to effectively eliminate a Martian? Since we know little about them or their constitution, I suggest plenty of power, even overkill. I'm opting for 7.62 Nato, the good 'ole .308 Winchester. My DS Arms SA58 is ready to defend Earth's honor...................

    Scoped NEF Synth .270 WIN with 130gr Poly tips loaded hot, dialed out to 600 yds and make one heck of a mess on fleshy critters.

    Just get them one at a time.

    If I remember correctly, a good cough could take them out. How about a spitwad shooter, or a super-soaker?

    Martians?...aren't they little thin-skinned, slimy, green things? I think .22 short would make them pop like a lime! :D (I chose the green smily on purpose)

    Hardtarget is thinking along the same lines as me. I think a nice bolt action .17 HMR (Rem 700) with Swarovski glass would be fun.

    If they're anything like us, well .223 should be just fine.

    For the movie Signs, why come to a planet where a slight rain will kill you?

    12 ga for Martians, Zombies, or were things. All ya gotta do is add a few silver pellets and sneeze in your reloads, aim for the head, and BOOM! A universal fix. :neener:

    In the promos, I saw F-22s, Apaches and M-1 tanks.

    But I think we should use "Cruise" missiles. :eek:

    I read that these aren't Martians anyway because we've seen there is nothing there. However, they could be hiding and annoyed that GWB wants to send people to Mars and don't like those little robots crawling around the backyard.

    A recording of Slim Whitman's "Indian Love Call" should do it.
