Alien Invasion

June 28, 2005 Categories: Movies | 5 Comments  

Christianity Today has ranked the top 10 Alien Invasion movies. For any other sci-fi fanatics out there — how do you think they did? I have to admit, I’ve only seen a few. I have a hard time with older sci-fi movies — I’m too distracted by the cheesy effects to enjoy the movie. But I love Independence Day. And Signs has to be one of the best — how can you beat Mel Gibson, theological overtones, and really freaky aliens? Also Joaquin Phoenix, who I think is one of the greatest young actors today. (Okay, maybe not that young compared to some, but he’s around my age, so that’s young, right?) I can’t wait to see War of the Worlds — Tom Cruise tabloid hype or not. So how many have you seen? Here’s their list: (You can click the link above to read the whole article with their commentary on each pick.)

10. Mars Attacks!
9. Men in Black
8. The Blob
7. The Day the Earth Stood Still
6. Predator
5. The Thing
4. Invasion of the Body Snatchers
3. The War of the Worlds
2. Independence Day
1. Signs

    We love Signs! It has it all, humor, tears, aliens, Mel Gibson!!!

    I have serious Tom Cruise issues, I don’t know if we will see War of the Worlds, but let us know what you think of it!

    I loved SIGNS, and I remember liking Invasion of the Body Snatchers-all those creepy pods being trucked into towns, all the unknowing people! Of course, now it is probably the ultimate in cheesy!

    I want to see War of the Worlds, too, but I am at the end of my patience with seeing “TomKat” plastered enverywhere! You know, I wish my name and my husband’s name blended like that, but CraRan just doesn’t sound as good!

    LOL I’ve only seen Men in Black and Independence Day. Makes me sound like some sort of Will Smith groupie or something LOL!

    I hated Mars Attacks. My dh thought it was hilarious. I’ve seen both Men in Blacks, the original and remake of the Blob, Predator, the original War of the Worlds, Independence Day and Signs. I do agree that Signs was number 1. I don’t know if we’ll see the remake of War of the Worlds yet.
