This movie is a hoot ! Especially  Jim Brown and  Tom  Jones . I love it when Jones turns around and his backup singers have been replaced with Martians, and who wouldn't like to see the Congress all get toasted.

This movie was actually based on a series of  Topps bubble gum trading cards from the 50's or 60's.


And you thought Trek isn't cool.

Hmmm...could be.  But I got several emails off-forum from Wyred defending his position.  Seems Wyred really did not like this movie to me.

No biggie either way.  I liked it and will watch it again.  Wyred did not, and probably will not.

He's definitely right about Daredevil and Charlie's Angels, though....

It's all been said pretty much, but I liked the movie and all of the "flaws" Wyred points out only make it better for me. To each his own.

I'm guessing Wyred didn't like Blazing Saddles, either.  I mean, none of the stuff in that movie could have happened.  Native Americans did not, for instance, speak German.

Someone, lend that guy a sense of humor.  For the love of GOD.  Why would anyone take the film that seriously.  I bet Wyred can't see the humor in the old Batman series, either.  He sits, watching it going "This is such horrible fight coreography.  That death-trap would never work!!  It's unscientific.  Hey!  The word 'zap' doesn't appear out of nowhere when you hit someone!  Even if it did, it's a bad sound effect for a kick!"

Parodies are immune to the usual constraints of science.  If we required from parodies the same things we required of more serious films, we would not have most of Mel Brooks work.  We would be missing Airplane, and The  Naked Gun.

I like parodies.  Mars Attacks is a parody.  If you don't like parodies, say "I don't like parodies."  Don't try to justify your arguement.  It's like trying to justify the statement "I don't like the color blue."  It's opinion.  Everything you're complaining about is simply a feature of the greater genera (Parodies).  Also, don't try to watch History of the World part 1 - there are anachronisms galore in that film, and we all know anachronisms are unscientific.

For the record - I liked Daredevil (comic book physics are cool), thought Pitch Black was a great film for a variety of reasons (but mainly because it succeeded in entertaining me), and My Blue Heaven is one of my all-time favorite comedies.  Steve Martin is a genius, and Rick Moranins is just plain funny.

Oh, yeah - and I like the old Batman series, especially the movie.  It's just plain hilarious, and so is Mars Attacks.

Sigh. Sometimes when you're out on a limb, it breaks off. Such is life.

.  .  .  .  Yeah Mr. Brooks, Native Americans speak Japanese, dummie (Alferd Packard: The Musical)!  
.  .  .  .  I think the point of the post was to see if anyone else agreed with WyreWizard, not so everyone could lecture about how WyreWizard "missed the point of the film."  I'm quite stupid so I didn't know about any imperfections, but hey, I get mad anytime a character is a photographer and they get some stupid fact wrong about that.
.  .  .  .  btw, I agree that My Blue Heaven is a great film.
.  .  .  .  But WyreWizard is right that everyone, and I mean everyone, top-tiered scientist or unknowledgeable baby knows that, THERE IS NO LIFE ON MARS!.   Every self-respecting UFoligist knows this, as well.  I mean, come on , it's soo obvious.   The Martians left Mars, to go live on Nuburu.

.  .  .  .  Actually the in-Martians prefer cart's for some reason.

from Night of the Big Heat (Christopher Lee as Godfrey Hanson and, I don't know the other person's name, so here's my guess, William Lucas as Ken Stanley):
GH:  Quite obvious isn't it?  They must've honed in on your scanner.  Look, these beings are composed of High Frequency impulses, in heat form.  They transfer from one place to another like any form of High Frequency does.  In fact, they transfered on to this planet, like, uh, television picture does, from a transmitter to a reciever.  ...[Elapsed time].
KS:  Do you realize what you're saying?  The Earth's surface is literally dotted with scanners: TV scanners, radar scanners.  If these beings succeed, they'll heat up the whole surface.  Earth will be just another hot planet!
