Mars Attacks

I want the people to know that they still have 2 out of 3 branches of the government working for them, and that ain't bad.

Can you imagine what would happen if Martians incinerated our congress and presidential family? I'll let you think that one over…

Tim Burton is a genius (ok, Planet of the Apes was embarrassingly horrible, but everyone is entitled to a mistake) and the casting of Mars Attacks couldn’t be more perfect. Adam Short channels George Stephanopoulos with super smarmy perfection, Glenn Close and Jack Nicholson make a nice Ron and Nancy Reagan, and the Martians have something vaguely familiar about them – could it be Beavis and Butthead?

Bring on the Martians!
