    • 10/10 - One of your very favorite movies of all time. Top 10.
    • 9/10 - Killer fucking movie. Everyone should watch it.
    • 8/10 - Great movie. Maybe one of the best released that year.
    • 7/10 - Very good movie, but not quite great.
    • 6/10 - Pretty good. You might enjoy the occasional watch, or tune in if you happen to catch it on cable.
    • 5/10 - It's okay, but maybe not something you'll go out of your way to watch.
    • 4/10 - Meh. There's plenty of better alternatives to this.
    • 3/10 - Not very good.
    • 2/10 - Not your cup of tea at all. Some people might like this, but you are not one of them.
    • 1/10 - Horrible in every way.
    • 0/10 - The Citizen Kane of painful experiences. You'd rather shove an icepick in your retinas than watch this.
    • I haven't seen the movie, but I'm interested in watching it.
    • No interest in watching it.

Campy and political satire.  Packed full of stars that a movie of this budget shouldn't have been able to afford and it comes from a time when people didn't take their politics half as serious as they do now.

I wanted a 10/10 but that just didn't feel right.  This isn't a true masterpiece but it was an excellent, fun ride. 9/10 for me.

I was pretty hyped for Mars Attacks when it released.  Then we rented it and it was merely okay.

Definitely the sorta film where I can tune in if I happen to catch it, but I never go out of my way to watch it.  So, 5.5 rounded up since I love gratuitous disintegrations.

Bumping this since were talking about Tim Burton's Nightmare Before Christmas in the newest thread

I can remember bits of this movie, havent seen it in ages, and while it had moments it was weird lol

Watching the trailer, and yea, quirky but I'm not enticed to go see it really

Gave it a 6.  One of those movies where the individual bits are much better than the sum total.  I do love the idea that Slim Whitman music causes heads to explode, mostly because at the time  I worked with a Whitman fan and sent him off to see the movie without explaining why.  He was not amused.
