Alien Visitors for Better or Worse in Film
July 12, 2010
-The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951)
“Klaatu barada nikto.”
-War of the Worlds (1953)
Beloved classic version of alien vs. man much better than that Tom Cruise business.
-Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956)
Don’t go to sleep.
-Plan 9 from Outer Space (1959)
The best-worst alien visitor movie ever! See it for a good long laugh.
-2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)
“What are you doing Dave?”
-Escape to Witch Mountain (1975)
You always thought the neighbor-kid next door was an alien…
Indeed -with John Williams music.
-E.T.: the Extra-Terrestrial (1982)
Lots of them in a retirement home pool.
-The Abyss (1989)
Exactly, in the ocean.
-Star Trek: First Contact (1996)
Reveals the story behind the universe as trekkers know it -one of the better Trek films.
-Independence Day (1996)
The invasion is upon us and Will Smith is in it.
-Men in Black (1997)
Mostly friendly visitors are nearer than we know and how can you go wrong with Will
Smith and Tommy Lee Jones anyway?
Not-so-friendly visitors make a stop in a cornfield. Watch it with a good sound system.
Scary and awesome creature destroys New York (motion sickness pills a plus).
-District 9 (2009)
Computer Generated Imaging at its best (really real) regarding the treatment of aliens.
