The Next Movie List

It occurs to me that I will be coming to the end of my Favorite Movies List in a little over a month. This leaves me with the question: what do I do with my Mondays after we get through number one?

Why Are They Called Martians?

No... I get it. They're from the planet Mars, so we call them Martians. That part makes sense. But I have to ask, why is it that in so many science fiction stories the Martians refer to themselves as Martians?
