Best UFO Movies


The Top TenXW

1Close Encounters of the Third Kind

Love it. I've watched this movie many times and still enjoy it. It avoids some of the silly Hollywood gimmicks and shows how encounters can deeply impact people's lives.

Unbeatable classic from Steven Spielberg. Visual effects still look modern and great. The acting was brilliant - Irina2932

Considering it was made in the 70s it still has better effects than stuff today. Excellent movie.

2The Shadow Men

Low budget but still great and really underrated movie with amazing Sherilyn Fenn - Irina2932

3Flight of the Navigator

A young boy disappears and reappears several years later flying an alien spaceship that thinks he is its pilot. Very cute movie - Irina2932

This is like, THE BEST MOVIE EVER MADE! You're crazy if you don't see this.

This is my favorite movie! Such an amazing film. I love this movie with all my heart. You have been good to me, Max. I will forever have that adorable little alien robot nestled comfortably in the back of my mind. Go Navigator! - RockFashionista


Creepiest alien movie I have ever seen, and definitely one of the most suspenseful (of all time that is). This movie is a great thriller and a must see! It deserves to be close to the top!

Suspenseful film that really grabs you and plays on your fears - Irina2932
