At the Movies
At the suggestion of a colleague I watched Mars Attacks! What a truly awful movie. Ostensibly, it was a comedy, and I was fully prepared for some good moronic fun. It was probably the least funny movie I’ve ever watched, and I’ve seen Shoah. Even the funniest of movies have unfunny filler and setup between their moments of hilarity. This movie was 90% filler and setup, it was weird. There weren’t even failed moments of comedy, there was almost no effort at comedy. It was just weird. On a scale of 1-5 half empty glasses, I give it half a half empty glass.
