There's probably one or more that I'm forgetting, but I maintain that it was COCOON: THE RETURN (in 1986). What's wrong with this picture? Obviously the ALIEN(S)/INDEPENDENCE DAY (devolved) uberparanoid mentality took over Hollyweird (at least in the sci-fi arena) a long time ago, so I'm wondering, does anyone think there could have been any influence by the shadow government/National Security state in the sudden (absolute and thorough) cessation of movies about friendly nonhumans? Or can anyone enlighten us of an American movie made since 1986 about them? (STARMAN was made in '84 or '85). Can also include films for HBO or Cinemax or the like; as well as box office. Sorry if I'm just forgetting, and I admit I'm not a big movie buff to begin with. And sorry if this has been covered before.

Flight of the Navigator was also 1986. Would have been a good year for them to land on the white house lawn!

Yeah, K-PAX rocked! I had a feeling I'd forget at least one. OK, so any in the late '80s, all of the '90s or since '01?

More than likely it's simply about money.

Look at all the gory monster flicks Hollywood pumps out.

Family movies are few and far between.

Making me wonder why Hollywood wonders why they're losing money....
