Blade Runner

Solaris...both American and Russian versions. The original by Tarkovsky is touted as his response to 2001...slow, dreamy, moody, haunting.

Also by Tarkovsky...Stalker. Warning...Tarkovsky movies are not for Friday nights.

War of the Worlds (The original... the intro narration by Sir Cedric Hardwicke
was great)

The Thing (John Carpenter's remake)

The Aurora Encounter (It featured a nice little alien who befriended some kids)

Alien (and Aliens)

Signs (kidding...that movie sucked! M Knight Shamalan is a doofus.)

The Day the Earth Stood Still

I still cant believe that no one said Dune... the original one wasnt that good but the remake is awesome. Frank Herbert's the man. Seriously if you've never watched it you need to you wont regret it.

I would have to say the movie "They live". To me, that is what we are living today.

This was a really creepy film with an awesome conclusion in the Mojave Desert. Does anyone remember this film? It was about this couple who discover through noises in their head that children are being experimented on at an underground base. They find out audio they were hearing were actually cries of help from stranded aliens...

Yes, that was a great, underrated movie!

I don't know if this qualifies as typical space travel, but I really like Stargate. Good story, good special effects, and I liked the way they dealt with the origins of Egyptian culture. For scariest, I'd have to say Event Horizon or Alien. Also, loved 2001 & 2010. As for recent stuff there was a movie called Sunshine. Kind of a sleeper, and no aliens, but a very cool movie. For my favorite "space" movie that none of my friends get, the aware goes to Solaris. I don't know why, but this movie really got to me.

Wait! Three whole pages of movies mentioned regarding alien encounters and NOT ONE MENTION OF THE GREATEST ALIEN INVASION FILM EVER CAPTURED ON CELLULOID -- THE SEMINAL 1986 MOVIE CRITTERS!

I mean really, how could no one remember the love that is this....

or this...

OK here are mine:

Close Enocounters
The last Starfighter
Black hole (dont know if its really a ET movie, but its space, close enough?)

Oh, and lest we forget the incredible cult classic Buckaroo Banzaii.

This one I thought was the shizzle when I was 10.

Besides, what other movie casts Jeff Goldblum as a cowboy. I mean really....

Well guys there has been so many movies with aliens in them i had to look at this to pick just a few of my absolute faves
(in no particular order).

Close Encounters
The Forgotten
Indipendance Day
The Sphere
Event horizon
Alians 1 2 and 3
Space Balls
Fire in the Sky
Men In black
The Fifth Element
Mars Attacks!
H.G. Wells' The War of the Worlds
The Chronicles of Riddick

The Best one of them all for me has got to be Close Encounters.
If there is gonna be some kind of Alien Contact in the future thats how it would happen imo.

The Andromeda Strain was a movie first, before The Scott's ruined it. Authored by Michael Crighton of Jurassic Park fame.

My favourite Sci Fi movies: Close Encounters, Day the Earth Stood Still (new one looks good, weary though), Alien and Aliens, Contact, Independence Day, E.T., Dune, list goes on.

And on TV: Space 1999, HitchHikers Guide, ST TNG , Lost, Heroes, anyone remember the Intruders from the ealy 90's?

What about worst? The Invasion was terrible.
