Mars Attacks! (1996)

This is the only movie from Tim Burton I had ever reviewed on. Based on the trading cards series from Topps, before Pokémon, it’s a laugh out loud comedy since “The War of the Worlds” from author H.G. Wells. The author of “The Invisible Man”.

With Jack Nicholson, Glenn Close, Luke Haas, Michael J. Fox, Pierce Bronson, Sarah Jessica Parker, Jack Black, Danny DeVito, Natalie Portman, Martin Short, Jim Brown, Paul Winfield, Christiana Applegate, and Sylvia Sydney are in this. Joining them as himself, British actor Tom Jones.

A famous film critic named Roger Ebert wasn’t so sure about this. Either if he liked it or not, it didn’t matter. But it always shows that we are better off alone in the universe.

A comedic war of the worlds began, when a legion of Martians came to Earth. In May of 1995. All over across the planet, many humans with their war machines have tried to take on these extraterrestrials. But none prevailed. Only a handful of heroes saved the world, as they were able to save Tom Jones in one piece.

Sheila Bell and I loved this movie, as it can be a fun film for people to watch. So I’m giving this 9/10 stars on this.


On a Mythbusters episode of the movie “Speed”, they had the exact bus like in the movie. And for their model bus that had failed, they should use a ramp for their model test run for the jump. Not like on the movie… on their episode, when the model bus was coming, it just headed straight onto the floor!

Speed with Keanu Reeves, Sandra Bullock, Jeff Daniels, Dennis Hopper, and Alan Ruck was a action disaster movie as it showed a mad bomber on the loose. He rigged a bus that that a bomb on it. If it hits 50 mph, it would explode. So that was why they kept on going and going until they saved the passengers and got out just in time.

The mad bomber died by losing it’s head, while on a subway. Speed is what matters, as long as you have to stop or keep going. A “B” average. This is my first time on WordPress anyway!
