Mars Attacks! (1996)


Nice planet. We'll take it!

It's enlightening to view Tim Burton's Mars Attacks! as his twisted satire of the blockbuster film Independence Day, which was released earlier the same year, although the movies were in production simultaneously. Burton's eye-popping, schlock tribute to 1950s UFO movies actually plays better on video than it did in theaters. The idea of invading aliens ray gunning the big-name movie stars in the cast is a cleverly subversive one, and the bulb-headed, funny-sounding animated Martians are pretty nifty, but it all seemed to be spread thin on the big screen. On video, however, the movie's kooky humor seems a bit more concentrated. The Earth actors (most of whom get zapped or kidnapped for alien science experiments) include Jack Nicholson, Glenn Close, Annette Bening, Pierce Brosnan, Danny DeVito, Martin Short, Sarah Jessica Parker, Rod Steiger, Michael J. Fox, Lukas Haas, Jim Brown, Tom Jones, and Pam Grier. --Jim Emerson

this movie is always funny and we get a kick out of watching it. It was sent in a timely manner and arrived on time. It is good too to do business with Amazon and the people that they have registered too. I have had no problems with any of my orders. J. A. Harris

At first I thought it was dumb, then I thought it was awsome!
This has many actors in it and many funny parts.

Including: Many are incinerated. Martians kill congress and the president. S.J.P. loses her body and so does Pierce Brosnan. Rod Steiger is shrunk and then squashed. Danny DeVito offers a martian a watch. Jim Brown gets into a boxing match with Martians. Christina Applegate is incinerated while having sex. Michael J. Fox is incinerated and S.J.P. is left holding his hand, which is later used in the Martian's experiments. Jack Black is incinerated while surrending to a Martian. (SUCKER!) Brian Haley's UZI is incinerated. The dog is incinerated. A bird in incinerated.
