Top Ten Best 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 Best Alien Movies

1 Alien

I agree with most of it, The Thing should be much higher. Also where is Arrival? That's considered as the best sci-fi movie of the last ten years.

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.

2 Aliens

A Masterpiece, Just Like It's 1979 Predecessor - JPK

It is better than the first and should be 1

I love Alien, But I love this way better!

Best movie ever no matter what genre

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

The good thing with this movie is that it doesn’t involve the WORLD ENDING.

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.

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

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

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

Really Good Movie - JPK

6 District 9

Awesome - JPK

7 The Thing

Really cool cover artwork - Mnsdjjfijf

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

Best movie ever. It’s a hilarious movie that all people love

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

11 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

It Was So So - JPK

12 Alien Resurrection

Not Really Good Per Say, But Not Exactly Bad Either - JPK

13 Home (2015)

The animation is good but this film is a 5/10 not that great but not anything super horrible just not that great.

Mixed with Nice Happy aliens and evil aliens. Home is a great family movie. Highly recommended.

I Personally ADORE The Crap Out Of This Movie - JPK

14 Predator 2
15 Mars Attacks!

Very Funny And Quirky - JPK

Great one - ElSherlock

16 Lilo & Stitch

An alien that crash lands in Hawaii. Plus, Stitch is cute!

35 Flight of the Navigator
36 Starship Troopers

This movie has everything. From its' idiosyncrasies to its' serious questions about what's possible. What's not to like? It's the reason it became a cult classic. It's a very interesting twist on aliens, the military and the future. This movie is about fun, while also taking itself seriously when it counts.
