I as well liked Fire in the Sky, but my vote went to ID4. Mainy in part because the events leading up to the attack was gripping, and once they began attacking the movie became a nonstop thrill ride. I also liked the speech made at the end by Bill Pullman. Overall I gave this 5 out of 5, and it has remained my favorite movie since seeing it in theatres.

I loved Independance Day and War Of The Worlds, but I voted for Fire in the Sky.

I haven't seen Arrival and I didn't like Contact

Close Encounters of the Third Kind, it was great seeing Richard Dreyfuss go crazy... This show has everything from abductions to government cover ups.....After watching the show, it will get you into sculpting Devil's Tower with your mash potatoes.

Close Encounters

If only contact with us earth people was to be like this.

Hell those aliens have some serious under chassis lighting on their vehicles reminds of the local boy racers.

If we were to be visited by Aliens i would like it to be like Close Encounters and the part at the end where all the people leave the craft is excellent

Contact is my favorite
Cause it depicted the true reality of how human behaves facing the unknown, total denial, even if 18 hours of tape was recorded, and the guy knew it and still kept at it.

The correct answer is "V"

Strange poll -- they missed "Contact" "Signs," and "The Arrival," but included "2001," which is a great film, but not about UFOs or an alien incursion. :shk:

Personally, I'm conflicted over my choice. My heart votes for "Independence Day" but my brain goes for "Contact." ID4 doesn't get a lot of respect; it's a sci-fi (as opposed to science fiction) action film, with a kind-of silly climax. Nevertheless, it's a huge amount of fun, and is actually quite gripping from the beginning up through the invasion sequences. "Contact" seems almost forgotten-about these days, but I've always enjoyed it for its serious science fiction attitude and aesthetically pleasing SFX photography.

It depends on how you define this type of film: strictly speaking, I'd say a "UFO Film" would be about an alien incursion, rather than an overt visitation or invasion. Typically, the protagonist of the story would be disbelieved/mocked/thought-to-be-crazy by the authorities, his friends, etc. while he desperately sought to prove his story and/or come to terms with his experience. "Fire in the Sky" and "The Arrival" are the best example that come immediately to my mind, as well as a lot of the mythology of "The X-Files" TV show and movie. I wish there were more of them -- I dig this kind of stuff!

Signs was intense....The only prob, I didn't like the size of the aliens, too tall, to my standards.....

Independence Day is my vote, They Came, They saw, They got the Shat kicked out of them, GO WILL SMITH!
Plus Will Smith Character was awesome, Straight up " Whoop ET's Arse! "
