    Good alien invasion movies?

    What are your favorite alien invasion movies?

    The ones like Independence Day, War of the Worlds, etc.


    I have watched plenty, but I am thirsty for more. I also don't like the concept of only a few people knowing the truth in the movie. I prefer large scale invasion where the governments and military confront the "bad" aliens.

    RE: Good alien invasion movies?

    I'm considering watching Battleship which has recently started showing at cinemas. I say considering because it might not actually be that good. Rather, I heard from a couple of others that it's a typical gung-ho US alien invasion film. "Hurrr, we are the US of A! Have at you, aliens!"

    I'd prefer something that's less about all-guns-blazing-action and flashy effects, and more about harsh survival against a superior alien race. Think about comparing a bog standard zombie onslaught film that has characters that endlessly mow through the zombies, with something that has an actual plot and drama like The Walking Dead. The latter is something I'd like to see in an alien invasion film.

    Jim: "How do you know?"
    Gene: "I don't!"
    Jim: "I knew it."
    Gene: "That's okay. There's a first time for everything!"

    RE: Good alien invasion movies?

    I like fast paced, well not too fast, movies with epic battle scenes. The Walking Dead is too slow for me, with lots of drama. Don't get me wrong, I like drama, but not when I want to watch some action movies haha.

    For zombie stories, I like Resident Evil (games) best. The movies are screwed up knock-offs with nothing in common with the original EPIC stories from the video games.

    Battlefield: Earth

    don't worry, i'm joking.

    My favorite would have to be the day the earth stood still, the one from the 1950s. but i've literally seen hundreds of b and z grade alien invasion movies. another one i liked was earth vs. the flying saucers. and who could forget ed wood's masterpiece, plan 9 from outer space.

    This.

    Everyone should watch this at least once in their lifetime.
    "It turned out that the ghost was just Mr. Finley, who ran the amusement park. The spooky part is that, as soon as the ghost appeared, the teenagers' dog began to speak! And it spoke in a tortured parody of human speech: 'relp me, Raggy,' it would say. 'I am an abomination and rould re rilled. Rill re, Raggy.'"

    RE: Good alien invasion movies?

    I actually want serious movies with epic battle scenes on a large scale.

    Goofy ones like Mars Attack might be laughable and it can be fun to watch, but more often I am in the mood to watch intense and scary movies. Mars Attack's whole atmosphere is goofy, not scary at all. I don't mind a few goofy scenes in every movie though.
