5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent adaptation of the book stories by scriptwriter Richard Matheson, 31 May 2010
By 
This review is from: Martian Chronicles [DVD] [1980] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
The story is more of a series of progressive short stories of the attempts to colonize Mars. Each landing encounters a different situation. Aside form the technical aspects of the story and the cheep effects of the film the real purpose of the movie is the message. I will not repeat the message here, as this is why you need to watch the series.

I found the ending satisfying but wondering if there should not be more.

Ray Bradbury is not as thrilled with the mini-series, calling it booooring. Nevertheless, you have to expect a few adaptations if you are going to have a relevant mini-series.

This may seem like a vehicle for out of work actors. Yet I can assure you that each actor plaid his/her part well enough that you are looking at the character not the actor.

Be aware that the version I watched was complete but the first two parts were on side A and B of the same DVD. Part 3 was on a separate DVD. The good thing was there were no coming attractions to work around with some fancy button pushing. The only thing missing was a voice over commentary that we have come to expect.
