Top 5 Bad Martian Invasions from Film & TV

Here's a nice follow-up to the 70th Anniversary of Mercury Theatre's 1938 radio dramatization of The War of the Worlds. The blog Not a Planet Anymore recently posted a list of the “Top 5 Bad Martian Invasions from Film & TV We’d Rather Forget”:

#5 Mars Attacks! (Film, 1996)

#4 Spaced Invaders (Film, 1990)

#3 War of the Worlds (TV series, 1988-1990)

#2 Santa Claus Conquers the Martians (Film, 1964)

#1 Invaders from Mars (Film, 1986 remake of the 1953 film)

While I haven't seen any of these productions, last evening I did listen to Indiana Public Radio broadcast Ball State University's re-creation of Mercury Theatre's 1938 dramatization of The War of the Worlds. The folks at Ball State did a great job and IPR will soon be posting photos on its website. Meanwhile, you can read more about the re-creation at The Ball State Daily News Online.
