Mars Attacks! 
Review - Mars Attacks! (1996)
3.5/4 stars

The world was once at peace, but then we found out that there were Martians in our atmosphere. Now the world can do nothing except die at the hand of beings with a cruel sense of humor in “Mars Attacks!”

Man, after watching this movie I wanted to watch every episode of “Mystery Science Theater 3000” straight through. Director Tim Burton is a big fan of old horror movies, and this was his way of paying tribute to the best of the worst. Unfortunately, most people didn’t understand this, and in return the movie got very poor reviews and a pretty bad rep. This is also partially due to “Independence Day” coming out earlier the same year.

“Mars Attacks!” is a great achievement of a film because it tries to be a horrible achievement. They really did a great job playing up the 50’s sci-fi look. The characters, the sets, and particularly the Martians are all totally the kind of things you would see if you watched anything from that special era.

If you don’t have a sense of humor, “Mars Attacks!” is probably not the movie for you. If you do, however, then you have got to see this movie.

Acting: 8/10
Writing: 8/10
Video/Editing: 7/10
Audio/Music: 9/10
Entertainment: 9/10

Final Score: 8.2/10
