I'm afraid I can't be quite as eloquent as Neglify, but anyway. I was never that big of a fan of Mars Attacks! because, despite great visual designs and some funny moments, I found it to be all over the place. I, however, loved every minute of this version. It's much more to the point, much more centered on satire, and much more fun and funny. Technical aspects are perfect. 10/10 in all cathegories.

I enjoy the original for what it is. This is a nicely trimmed version and I appreciate the majority of the cast now reduced to cameo appearances. I might have moved Grandma's line "They blew up Congress!" to before the Army opens fire on the saucer, but otherwise I really had a lot of fun with this one. Thanks, reave.

The pacing was on point. Concentrated absurdity at its finest. Loved every campy gonzo minute of it.

The mp4 version carried a bit of audio/visual asynchrony, whether played on QuickTime, MPlayer or my tibi. But that's OK, because I was too busy chortling to mind.

Bonkers stuff, Reave. This is definitely one I'll have to show to fanedit virgins.

Enjoyjoy: 10 pelvic aerothrusts.

Thanks for the review. Can you tell me exactly where the audio slips? I haven't had this complaint on the mkv version, so I would like to track down the issue on the mp4.

I remember seeing Mars Attacks in the the theatre. Twice. The first time I saw it, I loved it. I thought it was brilliant. I liked it so much that I went back a week later to see it again. The second time I found myself wondering what I had been thinking. It stunk. I was really disappointed.

Over the years, I've revisted Mars Attacks in the hopes that something will click and I'd rediscover my initial experience of the film. It's never happened, until I watched Mars Attacks! From Space!

It's just a terrific edit of the film, highly enjoyable. Cutting all the fat, turning bloated sequences with extraneous celebs into perfect little cameos. This is Mars Attacks the way it should have been. And that ending nearly made me choke on my drink. A perfect sting.

Well done, this will be my definitive version of Mars Attacks from now on.
