So, I just finished watching War of the Worlds 2005 with Tom Cruise and I have some questions.

I flipped around while the movie was on and missed parts of it, plus when it was on I wasn't always paying complete attention so I think I missed some key plot points.
1) The end, where Tom Cruise, shows up to his ex-wife's house and the street is not damaged at all, and she and her grandparents are still alive, and his son somehow managed to survive the earlier battle and beat him back to the house, that was a dream sequence or something right? I mean we aren't actually supposed to believe that that happened?
2) What was all the red stringy stuff that showed up outside after Tom and Dakota holed up in Tim Robbin's house. Was that people? I think it might have been people but I'm not sure. And if was people why did the aliens switch from death rays to to taking people apart?
3) There was a scene where the aliens held some dude down and took all his blood. WTF? What did they want with his blood?
4) Why did the aliens go from incinerating people to capturing them in "buckets" under their tripods?
