MARS ATTACKS! (1996 U.S.) D/P: TIM BURTON W: JONATHAN GEMS P: LARRY FRANCO
This sci-fi comedy based on old bubblegum trading cards has great looking aliens with huge exposed brains and laser guns attacking the Earth, but has a boring script, nothing much exciting happens and the humour is a very aquired taste (not mine). Some scenes and ideas are cool, but i expected better. Jack Nicholson stars in two roles (one is the President), with Pierce Bronan, Anette Bening, Glenn Close, Danny DeVito, Martin Short, Sarah Jessica Parker, Rod Steiger, Tom Jones, Lukas Haas, Jim Brown, Lisa Marie, Natalie Portman, Michael J. Fox, Joe Don Baker, Christina Applegate, Pam Grier, Paul Winfield, Sylvia Sidney, Jack Black, Jerzy Skomilowski, Rance Howard, Barbet Schroeder, Willie Garson and Rebecca Silva. Visual references include EARTH VS. THE FLYING SAUCERS and THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL.
