I would have preferred an actual sequel to Close encounters. This does nothing for me.



A sequel where Spielberg gives up on the alien and tells the truth
instead of dishing out lies forever more.
The truth hurts the money pocket so they keep on lying to us.

Close Encounters of the Fourth Kind

[edit on 14-8-2009 by theprofessionalnyc]


I think they are trying to make it something to fear.

What would be interesting is an actual study of positive ET movies vs. negative ET movies. I'd like to see if there is a pattern in the kinds of the writers and productions companies of these movies. Then we may see a trail as to who is promoting fear vs. curiosity.

What is even more interesting is the popularity of shows/movies such as Star Trek and Star Wars, showing humans and nonhumans working together. Also making it clear there are good and bad individuals in any species. The popularity of these movies I think reflects the deeper understanding we have of this.

It is discouraging to see ET movies made with the purpose of scaring others. But that's Hollywood for you. This film may be based on abduction stories, but I'll bet the farm that they spiced it up considerably.

Is there an agenda beyond the horror movie scare factor? That is something to ponder.

It's how it works. When the UFO subject is popular in the public and in the news media they get nervous and sweat. Then all these goofy alien movies come out to contain the truth behind it all. Make us seem like nuts. I will never be ashamed to state that I believe "some" UFOs are of ET origin. Neither should you.


Why not say UFOs are from man's origin like we should.
Like we did years ago.
What has changed.

Cause Spielberg says there are ETs.
Not by my book.
My book says Tesla designed the UFOs flying around so
there is no need for ETs except for the people that want
to keep the technology hidden from us and make money
on lies saying ETs did it.

Will you please stop making everything about Tesla. UFO's were seen far back in ancient history long before Teslas existed. I am impressed with his work but honestly.. He is not an answer to all the mysteries of the universe.

IT'S JUST A MOVIE!!!

If people are idiotic to the point that they need Hollywood to tell them whats true or not, aliens are the least of our problems.

[edit on 11/9/09 by Tifozi]


I can feel your frustration.




The fact is that the believers want to see it because they want to believe.

Those who think they have experienced something similar want to know
what has happened to them.

The debunkers want to debunk it even though it is a drama in movie form that is designed to induce interest.

The actual disappearance of people in Nome is real and documented most have been solved and have no paranormal connotations at all.

The number of missing people and the mystery of it is simply a premise for a movie.

People do seem to react to this movie strongly. I get the creepy crawlies watching the trailer but it is simply a well publicised and skilfully manipulated add campaign for a suspense thriller.

And.......once again, I Love Mila Jovovich.

She gets sexier every year.

Remember...
It's just a movie.

True it is just a movie, but I think what has people unsettled is how much it hits on the truth. I think this film is making some people aware of things they don't want to be aware of. I have suspected a connection between paranormal activity and UFO sightings and this movie has really brought them together and personally it creeeps me out. Yes it is fiction, but it is based on fact.

Whats the mystery, they are flying around now.
Your bible fliers are still here.
Don't think so.
They would be in the history books by now.
So please stop saying no to Tesla.

In the history books by now if it were true you say? I guess by that logic then the things you believe about Tesla can't be true either because that is not in the history books either. Get the point? What is in textbooks is controlled information. It is as much as they want you to know. YOU know that. I am not arguing Tesla was brilliant or even that Some things may be a result of his stolen work, but it does not equal a blanket explanation for all UFO's because that is just impossible. Alexander the great saw 2 UFO's in his lifetime, one of which helped him defeat a city he was trying to conquer. How exactly do you explain Teslas involvement there?

Tesla doesn't have to be alive now for people to be flying his aircraft.
Where is Alexander and where are his ships.
From the 1943 Foo to the Belgian Triangle to the UFOs of today
has the distinction of being the work that scientists know full
well came from the Tesla work shop.

I agree with you that it strikes a chord with some. It just suprises me that all of the others, especially the ones who have no belief in the abduction issue are getting so riled up.

I think there should be more abduction movies.
Yet does this one sensationalize something that did not happen.

What do you think of the Walton abduction.

Exactly, which brings to my opinion:

There is no damage to anyone to pursue, debate and investigate the stuff about this movie.

In my opinion, there is no right in judging and criticizing people just because they are TALKING about a movie, having true facts, "half-facts" or not.

In theaters November 6, 2009. But I don't like how it's based on fear of aliens.

And don't forget that James Fox's new documentary "I Know What I Saw" debuts on the History Channel October 5, 2009.

You are entirely missing my point.

There is a difference between fiction and fraud.
Fiction is storytelling with no implication that the story is real.

I would have absolutely no problems if the makers of the movie would say this was a fictional depiction of alien abduction.

They are not doing this.

This is NOT an issue of whether alien abductions are real.
The promoters of this movie are deliberately misleading the public by stating this is based on real cases and claiming that the character playing the psychologist is playing a real doctor. There is noo such doctor.

Please try to read through the thread and the references to see what the issue is.

Yes. It is a movie and a drama. However, it is being promoted as a documentary. It isn't a documentary as you are clearly aware from your post.

You have no objection to a promoter claiming a movie is a documentary when it is a story made up by a scriptwriter?

It's actually "healthy" that people try to find the truth about things like this, wether they choose the right path or version, or not.

[edit on 10/9/09 by Tifozi]


So you are saying you have no problem with people who make fake UFO movies and present them as authentic movies of UFOs?

How is that a search for truth?

You're not getting what I'm saying at all. You don't even understand the concept of movies.

They aren't suppose to be "true" or "proof" for that matter. If they had any resemblance to truth, they would be called "dramatization" or "documentary".

Do you really think that if any Hollywood studio had proof of aliens or UFOs, they would make a movie about it? There is a long history between the governament and Hollywood. Nothing passes without the concent of the US governament/US military.

Again, it's Hollywood trying to make money. If you get bothered by that, then you have a lot in this world to get mad at...

No, It is you my friend who clearly is not understanding a word I am saying.

This is a movie which is being promoted as a documentary.
It is not.
The promoters are hoaxing the public.

And please try not to be so bloody condescending.
I know full well what movies are.

WRONG!

It is bein promoted on the same way that any other movie, with traillers, some screen captures on TV and interviews. They don't take the step further of telling "please come to see this documentary" on news networks and such.


The promoters are hoaxing the public.


Wrong, again.

The producers said they made a thriller inspired in real-life facts. You fall like a duck to the trap.

They don't say WHICH facts, they say they are based on facts.

It's a fact that people claim to be abducted.

It's a fact that people are missing in Alaska.

And so on...

Just because they say "fact" doesn't mean they say that EVERYTHING is a fact.

Mila says "in this movie I play the role of a psychologist who is affected by (...)".

Where, in her text she says "In this documentary I play the role of the psychologist Abby" ?

They give you half, and you process the lack of information.

The exact same thing happened with Blair Witch Project.


A provocative thriller set in modern-day Nome, Alaska, where — mysteriously since the 1960s — a disproportionate number of the population has been reported missing every year. Despite multiple FBI investigations of the region, the truth has never been discovered.

Here in this remote region, psychologist Dr. Abigail Tyler (Milla Jovovich) began videotaping sessions with traumatized patients and unwittingly discovered some of the most disturbing evidence of alien abduction ever documented.


They are telling the plot, not the facts!


And please try not to be so bloody condescending.
I know full well what movies are.


I'm not condescending, I'm just trying to show the obvious. It's different and hard.

And with all due respect, no you don't, since you can't tell what marketing is and you can see where the movie starts and the marketing ends.

I was not suggesting a discussion was a bad thing, I think you need to read what I said again. I am always in support of a productive discussion with many points of view.
