My Favorite Martian Bloghop!
Our blog buddies Nigel and Maurice over at The Geek Twins are among the co-hosts for this blog event - which is all about spotlighting the aliens in pop culture that we love!
Well, since it happens to fall on Monday - our regular department spotlighting three movie posters - I see no reason to break tradition - and to keep it nice and tidy - we will indeed spotlight some of this blog's favorite Martians!
War of the Worlds (Paramount, 1953)
Quite simply, a classic. I have loved this movie since first seeing it on KPLR Channel 11 many moons ago. The effects, the design of the Martians and their flying ships - extraordinary!
Mars Attacks! (Warner Bros., 1996)
A very silly and fun movie - not the first flick to be based on a bubblegum card series - that honor belongs to 1987's The Garbage Pail Kids Movie. But Mars Attacks takes a stellar cast and puts it through some goofy paces. I actually encountered several of the main actors heads from this movie while working on another movie - which I'll reveal in the Teenage Production Assistant post about that movie!
The Day Mars Invaded Earth (20th Century Fox, 1963)
I think I saw this one on one of my creature feature Friday or Saturday shows way back when - but I have no real memory of it - so I would like to check this one out again!
Thanks very much to Maurice and Nigel for featuring this bloghop on their blog - bringing it to my attention - and thanks to you for coming by to see the results! Come back often, and comment whenever the mood strikes!
Until next post, you Can Poke Me With A Fork, Cause I Am Outta Here!
