Ghosts of Mars is another movie i need to watch again.
Only seen it once about 10 years ago.

I remember that it was pretty atmospheric flick
and the cast includes some interesting names:

Henstridge, Grier, Statham, Cube, Cassidy...

GoM was so-so. Not bad, but it could've been much better.

Although I find Dark Star interesting, I never got to actually like it...

1. Assault on Precinct 13
2. Escape from New York
3. Dark Star
4. Halloween
5. Cigarette Burns from "Masters of Horror," season 1

A bunch just below the top five: Starman, The Fog, Vampires, The Thing, Big Trouble in Little China, They Live, Someone's Watching Me, Elvis, and Prince of Darkness. Not particularly fond of the others--and positively depressed by Village of the Damned, Escape from LA, and Ghosts of Mars. I heard that his new one, "The Ward," is a return to form somewhat, but I don't think that it has a North American distributer yet. What a shame!

Notice how no matter whose list it is and what films are listed, they are all really good. J.C. is a great, great director.

1. Big Trouble in Little China
2. Christine
3. The Thing
4. Assault on Precinct 13 - When that dude shot the little girl I was like WTF.
5. The Fog - Not really scary but as a kid it's a great flick. Watched it recently and didn't have the same feel.

Yeah, that was really shocking when i watched it the first time.
BTW, wasn´t that Kim Richards (Tuff Turf) who gets shot?

I just watched They Live for the first time. Not trying to sound like a harsh critic, but I felt that the movie was definitely lacking. I thought the movie could have gone for at least half an hour longer and delved alot deeper into the story. I enjoyed it, but at the end, I was thinking, is that it?

I understand your thoughts Bernie.
There´s lots of cool things happening during the last 10 minutes
so you get the feeling "was that it, i want more!"

But this is a movie you have to watch multiple times to really appreciate.
Next time enjoy that laid back feeling, cool soundtrack and those awesome characters.

I´m so glad that there is no sequel to this movie
because i like the mystery
and one can only imagine what will happen next.
