words kill, words give life

5 movies for martians

If aliens from Mars crash-landed in my backyard (assuming I had a backyard), I would make them watch these movies before taking them to my leader (assuming they didn’t kill me first).

“Thank You for Smoking” to show the weird way our government works.

aaron eckhart, aron, erin, eckheart, ekhart, ekheart, thank you for smoking, nick naylor, nailor, nailer, microphones, press conference, interview, lobbyist, movie, film, audrey hepburn, breakfast at tiffany's, film, movie, blake edwards, holly golightly, lula mae barnes, little black dress, lbd, givenchy, cat, crates, window, toast, heels,

“Breakfast at Tiffany’s” for appreciation of glamour, love and all else that Audrey Hepburn embodies.

“Singing in the Rain” to illustrate the wonderfulness that is random breaking into song.

gene kelly, gean, jean, kelley, singing in the rain, movie, film, comedy, classic, don lockwood, dancing, hat, umbrella, puddleveronica sawyer, winona ryder, heathers, funeral, movie, film, teen, murder, suicide, kim walker, heather chandler

“Heathers” because even Martians should be afraid of teenagers.

Update: I removed “Mars Attacks” from this list after a Martian told me it was anĀ  inaccurate and offensive depiction of the species, “We look much more like that cute little boy from ‘Martian Child’ than we look like those big-brained fiends.” My deepest apologies to any offended aliens.
