Santa Claus Defeats the Aliens (video title)
The children of Earth is looking forward to Santa's trip around the world. While the children of Mars are listless and all
they due is watch Earth programs. Kimar the leader of the Martains travel to see the wise man who tells him that the children
of Mars do not know joy and the way to bring joy is to kidnap Santa.
So he gets a teams together and goes to Earth. But he has no idea where the real Santa lives so he kidnaps two kids and
force them to talk. With the help of Torg the robot, he kidnaps Santa.
The kids and Santa are on their way to Mars, but there are elements on Mars who liked things the way the were and wants
I must admit I thought the whole concept of aliens abducting Santa is kind of goofy, but I must admit it was a charming likable
comedy full of cute monsters and Pia Zadora. The only thing I hate about the movie is the opening song, "Hurray for Santy
Claus". It's Santa, not Santy, also it was kind of annoying. But that is the only real complaint. Also I would have liked
to have seen more of the ship landing and taking off. But again, minor. I think it's a true classic for kids. Boys will like
this movie then your average girl. I know I found it interesting when I was a kid. But if you have kids or want to look back
to a found memory from your childhood, then buy SANTA CLAUS CONQUERS THE MARITIANS. I give it...8 STARS.
I agree with Zedd. It does get annoying, but I am a big fan of Pia Zadora and I do wish she had a bigger part in this. But
it's the main reason why my grade is so high. I give it...7 STARS.
ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS):
+ FUNNY (There is allot of humor in this movie.)
+ FUN FOR KIDS (You're kids will enjoy this, boys more then girls.)
+ TORG (Torg is a cool robot.)
+ ACTING (Considering is so silly, the acting was pretty well done.)
+ MARTIAN EFFECTS (The Martian effects were good.)
AND TWO WORDS...
PIA ZADORA (In her first role.)
ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):
- SANTY CLAUS (Hurray for Santy Claus? Who wrote that song?)
- SILLY CONCEPT (The whole concept is on the silly side.)
- NOT FOR EVERYONE (If you don't have kids or if you didn't grow up watching this on TV, then you may not like it.)
