This time on Talkin' Bout My Generation, Doug Abel and Mike Blanchard are invaded!!
In Part 1 of this double feature, we discuss the 1950's era throwback film, Mars Attacks. An ensemble film, this movie had kind of a who's who of famous people - Annette Bening, Jim Brown, Michael J. Fox, Sarah Jessica Parker, Jack Nicholson, and even Tom Jones (because I'm assuming Wayne Newton wanted no part of this film). Mike and Nicole dish on this film as one of their favorites - Doug, however? "Not one of my favorites, and if I don't watch it again? No loss."
For the second half, however we move into a movie that has stood a better test of time: Space Jam.
This film chronicled Michael Jordan's retirement to play baseball, and return to basketball - oddly, the decision had nothing to do with him playing poorly on the Chicago White Sox farm team, the Dragons, but rather, due to the assistance of a bunch of Loony characters trying to avoid being kidnapped and put on display at Moron Mountain.
