top sci fi movies : Mars Attacks

October 06, 10

I know, I know. Everyone seems to whine endlessly about this movie.

I’m not going to join in.  Yes, it’s got a camp factor like it should, and maybe the pacing wasn’t perfect. 

So what? Will it buy you a cup of coffee at the gas station?

If you liked the tone of the original card set like me, there are some pretty funny moments.  The Martians look great, and are really faithful to the originals. 

Personally, I would have loved to see the whole thing animated (stop motion or 2D) — but then, that’s true for just about anything.
