The media has also formed the mainstream perception of UFOs and unearthly visitors through books, television series, documentaries, the print media, and movies. Just a simple assessment of the way this has been portrayed in the best known movies involving "alien" visitors shows what that perception is. Here is a list:
Alien, The Andromeda Strain, The Arrival, The Blob, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Cocoon, The Colony, Contact, The Day the Earth Stood Still, Deep Star Six, Dreamcatcher, E.T. - The Extra-Terrestrial, Earth vs. the Flying Saucers, The Fifth Element, Fire in the Sky, Forbidden Planet, I Married a Monster From Outer Space, Independence Day, Interceptor Force, Invasion Earth: The Aliens Are Here, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, Invasion, It Came From Outer Space, Lifeforce, Mars Attacks!, The Martian Chronicles, Men in Black, Not of This Earth, Plan 9 from Outer Space, Predator, Signs, Species, Starship Troopers, They Are Among Us, They Live, The Thing, The War of the Worlds, When Worlds Collide, The X-Files - Fight the Future, and Xtro.
Of the 40 movies listed, (over 50 with sequels included), about 90% portray "alien" visitors as a threat to humanity, either bent on the destruction of the planet or its most intelligent two-legged inhabitants. In other words, it is an extremely negative view. And, the portrayal of UFOs and their occupants in other forms of media is just as negative. Added to this discouraging reality the fact that the major institutions of government, the military, big business, science, education, religion, archeology, history, and the media don't seem to have any logical reason to portray UFOs as beneficial to the human race, and we have a very serious problem many in the UFO community have not considered. And, also, in the equation are those within the UFO community, who have already, unjustifiably, declared UFOs and their occupants a danger to humanity or a satanic deception. One would be hard pressed to find any in society who would not be, at least, highly suspicious of the agenda of the UFO, which is the result of over a century of negative conditioning.
There will be a UFO disclosure and it is probably very close to happening, but it would seem that rolling out the red carpet, an extension of welcome and friendship, and an invitation to the United Nations may not be the results of such an event. The code will probably be red, not the carpet, anxiety and fear will be the most likely attitude, and the United Nations will not meet to welcome the visitors, but to call an emergency session to deal with this newly perceived threat to humanity. E.T, will not ask to "phone home", but will be told to "go home". What happens after that will probably be stranger than any science fiction movie could ever portray.
UFO disclosure may eventually reveal much more than we ever imagined.

For years I hoped for the same, but after many years  of studying that phenomenon I have a very bad feeling about the impact and consequences of such a disclosure.
