Martians have invaded Earth, and there’s absolutely no way to stop them. That’s the complete plotline of this vintage sci-fi classic, which is both more gorgeous and way more of a downer than you probably remember. Its effects may not measure up to raised-on-CGI standards, but the imagination behind its design still captivates. -Lee Gardner
