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

Pop Culture Phenomenon Films: 90’s (1036 movies items)

" One of two alien destruction films, this one is based on a trading card series of the same name. Only, the Martian’s are practical pranksters, and don’t want to conquer the world. Instead, they view Earth as a play thing. However, Independence Day nuked it from it’s box office orbit, and critics had mixed reactions toward the film, noting that despite it’s dark humour, and all star cast, it wasn’t one of Tim Burton’s best films. DVD rentals, helped it to become a cult classic fil"

“While he has been hit and miss recently, I like Tim Burton. Mars Attacks! is not his best(Edward Scissorhands), but far from his worst(Planet of the Apes)- in fact Mars Attacks! gets my vote as Burton's most underrated film. Mars Attacks! is a film you love or hate really, but I like it and consider it underrated and somewhat as a guilty pleasure.

The film does have a slow start and it does take a little too long before the fun starts. What I loved about Mars Attacks! though was its smartness, fun and in some ways uniqueness. It does make the most of a bubble-gum card story, and works brilliantly as a biting satire, and is further advantaged by some excellent visuals not only in the computer-generated bug-eyed Martians but in the photography, make-up and sets, wonderfully clever ” read more

"Re-watch - March 24th My daughter wanted to watch one more movie this weekend, and since she's enjoyed Burton's films so far I thought I'd see what she thought of this one. She had a good time with it, but I think some of the death scenes grossed her out. I don't expect her to want to rush back into watching it again, but hopefully in the years ahead she'll grow to appreciate it more. It's been three years now since I last watched it, and I still get a kick out of it."
