FILM REVIEW; Out of this world.

CHATTERING aliens take over the world in this sci-fi comedy from the director of Batman and Beetlejuice.

Inspired by a garish set of Topps trading cards from his childhood, film visionary Tim Burton created this hilarious homage to the outrageous sci- fi B-movies of the '50s - you know, the ones where the spaceships are powered by fireworks in the back. And Burton managed to assemble a stellar cast for the romp, including luminaries like Jack Nicholson, Annette Bening, Michael J. Fox and even Tom Jones.

But the real stars are the lunatic computer-generated Martians with their incomprehensible language and indiscriminate use of deadly ray guns (1996)PPPP
