A brief cinematic history of Mars
Stranded: Náufragos 2001
Following closely on the heels of the Mission to Mars/Red Planet Y2K double header, the 2001 Spanish film Stranded puts Vincent Gallo and Maria de Medeiros (aka Bruce Willis's girlfriend in Pulp Fiction) at the head of a doomed mission to Mars, where they find (what else?) evidence of a superior species. Man, doesn't anyone ever go to Mars and just find microbes? Or a totally inferior alien race that only watches reality television? Seriously, people, let's mix things up.
