    When I think of alien movies I don't think of Star Wars or Star Trek or any movie that is set in space. It doesn't seem 'alien' when you are in space. My mind gravitates to films like 'Encounter of the Third Kind', 'ET', or 'Paul' where everything happens on Earth.

    So what are your favorite 'alien' movies?

    Agree with all of the above.

    Some of these are really good, others just really fun:

    Alien Raiders, awesome indie film. Check it out, not just good for the budget but good in its own right.
    The first half of Enemy Mine was good enough to forgive the second half (which wasn't really that bad)
    Quatermass and the Pit (or was that a mini-series?)
    A bunch of bad ones after the MST3K treatment not worth mentioning individually
    The Last Starfighter (space I know but it was very earth-centric)
    Evolution
    Earth Girls are Easy
    Outlander (spaceman vs alien AND vikings, what's not to like?!)
    District 9
    Flight of the Navigator...."compliance!"
    Repo Man
    Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull.....bwahahaha, no.

    No, that was The Thing From Another World (1951). I think what was meant was The Thing (1982). Saying that, if someone said 'The Thing', I would naturally assume they are talking about the 1982 version, unless they said 'The new Thing film' or 'The Thing '11'
