Ghosts of Mars:

“I wonder when John Carpenter is just going to give in and make a bonafide Western. You can tell he totally wants to.”

This movie’s so crazy, it’s got flash-backs, in flash-backs, and sometimes, inside those are even more flash-backs. The bad guy — billed simply as “Big Daddy Mars” — yells gibberish. Complete Oscar performance.

“The intriguing setting, the impressive visuals, and some creepy early scenes build up a lot of audience goodwill, which the film then chips away at relentlessly, as if willing itself to mediocrity.”
