Top Ten Alien Movies

Alien movies sure have gotten popular over the last couple of decades. Spielberg could probably talk to you for hours about how much he loves them. He has afterall made upwards of like, twenty!

The Top Ten

1 Alien

Great masterpiece of cinematography! Great storyline, visual effects, cast, deaths, suspense, everyhing - Alexandr

Few films are as well made as Alien. It is such a perfected film that it's still a masterpiece today. Oh, and it's bloody terrifying.

Never saw the second film, so for now, it's Alien.

9 Close Encounters of the Third Kind

I love what Close Encounters does with aliens more than any other movie: It makes them mysterious, almost like an enigma. Like the childhood stories of wailing ghosts in the woods. On the boundary of fact and imagination. - higgsboson2142

Spielberg Is Genius - JPK

10 Signs

I think this movie is really exciting it inspires me to never give up and to watch out for green ginormous aliens

Very creepy movie kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time

This movie will make you believe.

Movies like this show that we don't always need big budget Sci-Fi warfare and explosions for an alien movie

The Contenders
