Perhaps they don't create quite enough deeply funny earthlings to go around, but a thoroughly meanspirited big-budget movie is always a treasurable rarity.

oaded with wit, nifty little ideas and an extraordinary sense of design, but its allure is of quite a particular nature, much closer to that of Ed Wood than of Burton's earlier, and far more commercially successful, works.

Unfortunately, it's not very good.

Just a parade of scattershot gags, more often weird than funny and most often just flat.

This may not be a Christmas movie, but it sure captures the elusive spirit of the season, and the simple pleasure is contagious.

First he made Ed Wood, a tribute to the man fondly recalled as the worst movie director of all time. Now Tim Burton seems to have made a tribute to Wood's work.

A stillborn affair that could have been -- and should have been -- a whole lot hipper and funnier.

As light entertainment, Mars Attacks! gave me more pleasure than most other recent movies I've seen.

Sadly empty exercise.

A throwaway piece of pop ephemera, like a '90s Casino Royale, momentarily arresting and soon forgotten.
