  1. Honore de Ballsack

    I know a lot of people who like this movie.
    Why does Pierce Brosnan look like Bob Dobbs in this?
    Michael J. Fox=never funny
    the Martians in this have a lot more personality than the aliens in Independence Day (a movie I hated)

  2. At the time, when this movie came out it was kind of a disappointment after Burton’s run of Beetlejuice, Batman, Edward Scissorhands, Ed Wood…etc.

    Most of the reaction was that it was a homage to 50’s drive in era sci-fi, while also being a goofy campfest…and that it was just okay.

    I always felt this movie was okay. Totally tongue-in-cheek, totally silly, but not great.

  3. Stardust is the dumbest app I’ve ever known!

  4. This is a ok movie but it has stupidity
    It has some funny

  5. Obviously this was a troll movie

  6. The Joker still is your president didn’t you see that YouTube video.

  7. It’s funny this review just came out now just last new year we were discussing our favorite ridiculous movies my uncle said gremlins gremlins my brother said airplane and I was obsessed with this at the time haven’t thought of it much since then.

  8. I was curious about this one not only because of Tim Burton, but also all those cast members. Would it be interesting to know what Jack Nicholson was thinking during his involvement? And how emo is this Taffy chick? (though it could be worse when she is in her late 20’s. :P) I get the feeling this movie bombed because the children brought in to see it were traumatized by the laser murders.
