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

My favourite - iliekpiez

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.

3 Predator
4 E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial

This movie has a great story, plenty of adventure, and cool quotes. It came out in 1982 and still holds up today. Also, it’s the best family oriented of the bunch.

One of my favorite movies of all time. - Catacorn

5 Independence Day

Must watch I can watch it 100 times
It's really like a rollercoaster movie
The President's speech was also very good

Awesome movie - tropicaljay

This movie has it all, a real roller coaster ride of fear and joy.

What a movie must watch! A little bit old but extraordinary..

6 District 9

Awesome - JPK

7 The Thing

This movie scared the s@! $ out of me when I watched it

8 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

9 Men In Black

I love this movie amazing masterpiece I can watch it over and over again

10 Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back

The Contenders

11 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

12 Alien 3

It was meant to be the final installment to the alien universe and as an ending to a trilogy it was really good.

This movie sucked compared to the two that came before it.

I thought it was good

Honestly not bad if you don’t mind the opening scene
