Mars Attacks!

Mars Attacks! DVD CoverBACK COVER TEXT

“The year’s coolest movie by far. A great achievement.” – Barbara & Scott Siegel, WNEW-FM/SIEGEL ENTERTAINMENT

AWAKE EARTHLINGS! It’s later than you think. Don’t miss this hilarious frenzy as Tim Burton (Batman, Beetlejuice) directs – and Mars Attacks!
SEE! Stars that shine across the galaxy. Jack Nicholson (in a dual role), Glenn Close, Annette Bening, Pierce Brosnan, Danny DeVito and a dozen more!
SHRIEK! At mean, green invaders from the angry red planet! Armed with insta-ray ray guns, endowed with slimy, humongous brains – and enlivened with out-of-this-world but state-of-the-art special effects.
GASP! As the U.S. legislature is overwhelmed. (Don’t fear, we still have 2 out of 3 branches of the government working for us, and that ain’t bad!)
THRILL! As Earth fights back with an unexpected weapon. Take that, Martians!

WEBMASTER’S REVIEW :: WARNING — POSSIBLE SPOILERS

While this movie was not everyone’s cup of tea (as proven by the box office take), Mars Attacks! is loads of fun for fans of classic Science Fiction films from the 1950’s.

This DVD, while not heavily loaded with extras, has some nice features for those of us who do enjoy the film. Two theatrical trailers, a musical soundtrack only option and a pristine print of the film. This DVD offers both the wide-screen and (evil) pan & scan version of the film.
