Believe it or not, it's come up before in one of the earlier iterations of this thread! It truly is a timeless sort of awful

No one blames you for not reading through 200 pages of covers to see if yours had been posted before.

Yeah, it would be weirder if you did somehow know it had been posted!

Quaid's glazed-over stare suggests he's not in the middle of speaking on that cover, just sitting with his mouth hanging open.

Well, I tell you what's actually weird; I saw the film on Encore years ago. Not the entire thing, or most likely I didn't pay attention much but yeah, I knew it existed. And the embarrassing thing is, I thought it had something to do with Mars Attacks based on the title.

I'll admit to being a little curious about it since it was written by Charlie Haas, who penned two of Joe Dante's best films, Matinee and Gremlins 2: the New Batch

I have read David Odell directed it to boot. From The Dark Crystal to that but then again, he did write Masters of the Universe.

I've been sort of curious about it, too. It's based on a novel by Fredric Brown, a prolific but now largely forgotten mystery & sci-fi author of the 40s and 50s. He's probably most famous now for the short story "Arena," which was the basis for the Star Trek episode of the same name (the original story is much, much better). I haven't read Martians, Go Home, or any of his novels, actually, but his short stories are wonderful, and often very funny.

I sort of hope I'm never curious enough to actually watch it, though.

I accidentally clicked a banner at DVD Talk and it took me to the Amazon page for something called Knights of Badassdom, the Blu-ray for which which some producer decided should contain an extra called "Hottie Montage":

Given which cut is on the Blu-Ray, that's not surprising really.

I wonder if it's Eisensteinian montage, or closer to Vertovian.

Don't lie, you were trying to google a nice hottie montage!

Isn't it that full lady's name? Summer Glau-Hottie, or something like that? :wink:

"Hey boss, what do we do with these old films now that their star or the aliens thing is hot right now?"

"Just put some sepia tone, it'll work out. By itself."

People who look straight at me with dour, subtly challenging insolence have never encouraged me to buy movies. Or insurance. Or Girl Scout cookies.

Wasn't that part of Artificial Eye's attempt to rebrand Winter's Bone as "the original Hunger Games!" or something like that? I know on its original release it had a more appropriate wintery colour scheme.

Is the photoshop head supposed to be part of the joke?

I think every film that ever been broadcast should include an "as seen on TV" graphic.

I Googled "Comedian Bone" so I could see one of his routines, and to be honest, not only is he not funny, but the audience in his videos seems to agree with me. Maybe I should be a Christian stand up comic, it can't be very hard if this is my competition
