114. September 6, 2010 - Mars Attacks! (1996)

And the Tim Burton quest continues. This movie is awfully strange. I appreciate the all-star cast - everyone from Jack Nicholson to Jack Black is in this - and the design of the martians is pretty cool. (Also gross - brains made out of green goo? Ew.) It's at the same time an homage to and a parody of the B horror movies of old (and shades of Ed Wood films can be seen throughout). There's not much to the story, but it's amusing and it does what it sets out to do. After all, everyone has to give in to self-indulgence once and a while.
My Netflix rating: 3 stars
