Mars Attacks!

marrs attacks

I’ve been a Tim Burton fan for many years and I’m hoping Beetlejuice 2 kicks ass, so last night I found Mars Attacks on Hulu and said why not because I never got to watch the whole thing before. I had fun with it this this goofy 50’s science fiction comedy. Pretty much the plot is in the title- Martians come to earth and well, attack. I have to say I love Jack Nicholson as the President- Jack’s always a welcome addition to any movie in my opinion. Also it was really cool to have such a wide range of actors like a young Natalie Portman, Jack Black, and Sarah Jessica Parker to more veteran actors like Nicholson, Glenn Close, Pierce Brosnan, and Michael J. Fox. The movie’s effects surprisingly hold up twenty one years later, achieving the retro 50’s alien vibe I really dig. The action scenes are cool and there’s some fun dark comedy spread throughout. While not personally my favorite Burton film, it still reminds me of better days and it’s a good time for Burton fans and retro sci-fi nerds. As always, thanks for checking us out and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
