Nice planet. We'll take it!
'We come in peace' is not what those green men from Mars mean when they invade our planet, armed with irresistible weapons and a cruel sense of humor. This star studded cast must play victim to the alien’s fun and games in this comedy homage to science fiction films of the '50s and '60s.

I love Tim Burton's movie and this one is utterly hilarious! So sarcastic and ironic, it is exhilarating! Such a brilliant black comedy!

Has a huge cast that all are pretty much there to get zapped to death. While the heroes are people you would least expect out of the cast. I like the Jim Brown character though who is a former boxer who takes on the aliens with his fists.
While Lukas Haas and his Grandma have an odd but effective way to take on the aliens. Nicholson's President is funny but one note. No matter what he just wants to make peace with the aliens even after they showed many times they don't want peace.
Mars Attacks is hated by many but I always enjoyed it. Since it conveniently came out the same year as ID4; it sort of feels like a spoof to it. However ID4 wasn't as wasteful to it's impressive ensemble.
