A very good movie

Back in those days, I saw this movie in the theaters and I really had a blast. Indeed, following his biopic about Ed Wood, Tim Burton wanted to make his own cheesy SF feature influenced by the 50's. Obviously, since he was influenced by Ed Wood, you shouldn't take this movie too seriously. Indeed, I'm always amazed when I see the low ratings concerning this movie here and on IMDB and, apparently, ... read more

I've always liked Sci Fi films involving Aliens etc., and speaking of things I've always liked, I can easily say I'm a fan of Tim Burton, easily. I usually enjoy the works of Tim Burton, though of course there has been a few disappointments from him, including this, Alice in Wonderland, Dark Shadows and without a shadow of a doubt his worst so far (and hopefully his last) Charlie and the Chocolate... read more

I LOVE it! Tim Burton is a genious! Another great movie from him! Its hella funny, and a bit stupid. But thats what made it great.

Funn-eh movie about 'aliens' from mars invading earth. And what they use to stop them is hillarious just said. So many great actors and actresses in this movie, i was amazed in the opening credits of the amount of names i recognised. Some just to mention... read more

Tim Burton Films - Ranked and Why (19 movies items)

" Mars Attacks! is a criminally underrated film. A true blast. An unapologetic, hilarious homage to sci-fi B-movies of the 50's. This is a comedy that succeeds with the one thing most modern comedies seem to have forgotten; to be funny."

A very good movie

“Back in those days, I saw this movie in the theaters and I really had a blast. Indeed, following his biopic about Ed Wood, Tim Burton wanted to make his own cheesy SF feature influenced by the 50's. Obviously, since he was influenced by Ed Wood, you shouldn't take this movie too seriously. Indeed, I'm always amazed when I see the low ratings concerning this movie here and on IMDB and, apparently, it is considered as one of Burton's weakest outings (only behind 'Planet of the Apes'). I don't know, personally, I thought it was pretty awesome. Indeed, there was a huge cast (Jack Nicholson, Glenn Close, Annette Bening, Pierce Brosnan, Danny DeVito, Martin Short, Sarah Jessica Parker, Michael J. Fox, Rod Steiger, Tom Jones, Lukas Haas, Natalie Portman, Pam Grier, Lisa Marie) and they all delive” read more

“Mars Attacks is a straight up hilarious, the story is what makes the movie as well as the aliens. The story is about an alien invasion, the aliens also have a sick sense of humour. This is not a great movie, this is another movie to watch just to have a laugh. There are a lot of actors in this movie, for me Lisa Marie stole the show as the Martian Girl. Tim Burton is at the helm, which is why the story is very out there.” read more

I even, and I'm pretty sure I am in the minority here, I think that Burton did the best Batman films, honesty, Nolan was trying to make Batman much more than it actually was; trying to extend it, which then makes it quite pretentious in some ways. Though Burton said himself he "never reads comic books" yet made the best Batman films. It truly shows you can be quite ignorant in things yet” read more

"6.7. TIM BURTON MARATON Siis voi vittu että nauroin tätä katsoessani. Aivan mielipuolinen näyttelijäkaarti on hommattu leffaan pääasiassa kuolemaan aivan randomeissa kohtauksissa vähällä ruutuajalla. Jack Nicholson perseilee olan takaa kaksoisroolissa, ja Tom Jones osaa lentää lentokonetta. Kaikki on tehty niin kieli poskella, että en voi ymmärtää, miten ihmiset pitävät tätä huonona. Tässähän ei ole mitään muuta kuin aivan tauotonta spedeilyä. Glenn Closen kuol"
