      Star Child. I also like Dune, X-Files, Star Trek and other Star films, but Star Child is my favorite.

    I think there's enough "Alien's" to go around for everyone.  At the other end of the spectrum, I like E.T. too.

    The first Alien is the best in my opinion.  I love all of the H.R. Giger work in the movie.

    I'm not sure if this constitutes as an Alien movie, but Solaris stands out as an intense and haunting bit of science fiction.  There is no overt physical extraterrestrial contact, but the hallucinations experienced by the human explorers implies the presence of an unidentifiable alien force.  The same can be said of 2001: A Space Odyssey, perhaps the greatest science fiction film ever made.

    Stevennix2001posted 8 years ago

    That's a bit difficult for me as I've seen so many alien movies in my time that were good in their unique way, so its hard for me to answer that.  However, I can tell you the best alien film this year was definitely "district 9" that film literally questioned the nature of humanity, and it made the aliens seem more human than us.  Which makes it sadder because as I watch that film, I can't help but realize how true that is about us.

    1. theageofcake profile image70
      theageofcakeposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      The idea behind this movie is great.  I think it may have inspired Arthur C. Clarke's Childhood's End, which is my all time favorite book.

    2. mintinfo profile image75
      mintinfoposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      I agree with you on this one as far as the technology concept, the story concept and the no nonsense robot but not for making the alien so human-like. They did a great job for the budget at the time.

      The Predator is my favorite though.

    "CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND"!

    Runner-ups:   The original  WAR OF THE WORLDS.                                                                                   The original  THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL

      War of the worlds... this movie was really meaningful and deep. I was breathless the whole movie....

    E.T. and Close Encounters. I also liked Mars Attacks simply because it was so absurd and campy.

    1. shamelabboush profile image69

  22. dohn121 profile image82
    dohn121posted 8 years ago

    There's so many that I enjoyed and several of them were already mentioned, so I'll go with some of the less-traveled ones:

    Starship Troopers:  I really like Paul Verhoeven and this is one of his masterpieces.  The storyline itself should be reason enough to enjoy this film.

    Contact: Although some will complain that it's a bit slow-moving, I thoroughly enjoyed it and recommend it to anyone, especially to fans of Carl Sagan.

    Fire in the Sky: Based on a true story, this was  a sleeper of a movie upon release.  Many skeptics think it a fairy tale, but so what?

    Communion: Who doesn't like Christopher Walken as a dark character?  This book scared the Hershey's Kisses out of me.

    Aliens

    District 9 was very good, and I also watched a Stephen King film the other day about an alien invasion called 'Dreamcatcher' that I hadn't seen before, I was impressed.

      hehe, beat me to it. Absolute classic! big_smile

      Another not mentioned yet is "The Day of the Triffids" and although it scared me to death when I was eight I suspect it might not have stood the test of time (think it was made in the sixties)!

        Yes, I agree, this was a great movie too, (probably where my fascination with Venus Fly Trap and Pitcher Plants originated from).

      Good of you to bring up this very true fact about the movie industry.   Some of the old stuff really earns the genius tag for costume, ridiculous special effects, and script.    I recall clips of one old monster movie featuring a wooly ape-looking creature wearing a big clumsy Diver Dan helmet on its head. 
      I laughed so hard I thought my stomach would split.

    The predator series( incl. AvP ) is my favorite. Predator 1+2 Arnold and Jesse are bad ass, and so is Danny glover in the 2nd film.

    Another old school classic favorite of mine is

    Killer Clowns from Outerspace !

      Yeah. that was another good one. But, the aliens weren't in it very long. It was mainly about underwater exploration. They just stumbled onto the aliens.

    Alien & Aliens.  Now awaiting the prequel to Alien which will be produced by Ridley Scott.  I thought Starship Troopers was good, too.

    Movies that come to mind:

    - Alien
    - Men in Black
    - Fire in the Sky
    - District 9

    District 9 is probably my favorite.

  42. brimancandy profile image81

    Here's a list of my favorites.

    1. Aliens.
    2. E.T.
    3. Close Encounters
    4. Independance day
    5. Mars Attacks!
    6. Men In Black
    7. Men In Black 2
    8. Preditor
    9. Total Recall
    10. War of the Worlds

    I would also like to add, scary movies 3&4, starman and, i'm sure there are others that I may have forgot about.

    Starship Troopers! Thanks!

    I think you could basically include every Star Wars and Star Trek films made. because they all had aliens in them.

    I just wanted to add "Krull" to the list. I'm not sure if this was meant to be an alien film. But, there sure are a lot of nasty creatures that look like aliens in it!

    And, it was a great story!

    1. jellydonut25 profile image60
      jellydonut25posted 8 years agoin reply to this

      for the first hour or so, yes...but once they get rid of Michael Bien's character the movie loses ALL of it's tension and becomes an exercise in tedium...
      though it does use CGI really welly

      Classic...it's so good
