Join us for a delicious Sunday Champal tne brunch $6.50 Kids 1/2 price. 11 a.m. to 2 xm. 1 | J i Y., Pahrump Valley Gazette, Thursday, June 19, 1997 AA1 "Mars Attacks!" Massive assault on humor by: Barney Basin Gazette Reviewer To enjoy "Mars Attacks!" it has to be accepted for what it is, an extremely clever piece of satire. Every cliche known to man, Martian, or monster is in this film. It is a collection of all the bad "B" box- office bombs of the sci-fi type. Don't even think of taking this flick serious, just sit back and laugh with it. First clue to the level of this production is the locale of the Martian landing. They land in Pahrump. Actu- ally, the film makers chose to use Kansas and make it look like Pahrump, something about director Tim Burton being haunted by the "Oz" mystique. Most visitors to our township want to check out the lay of our golf course, or the other laid back sights of our town, not so with these mean, lean, green beings. Their purpose is to commit constant carnage, and so the fun begins. Remember, Director Burton is known for his dark side and to him the removal of congress with a ray gun is funny. Earth fights back, but our weapons won't stop the invaders, the nuclear bombs are useless, all looks dark, when an unexpected weapon helps us win and regain what's left of our planet. Not to reveal the winning weaponry, but it may be a good idea to retrieve those Slim Whitman albums r OH SURE from the trash. The cast is crammed with big-name stars, like Jack Nicholson, Glen Close, Annette Bening, Pierce Brosnan, Danny DeVito and many others, but almost every performance is a cameo characterization to the special effects. Basic moral to this satirical tale is don't trust anyone with pop eyes and a green oversized head, and don't take anything serious that lands in Pahrump. C[. Mar.(, ,ttac 2.
