As my first thread on ATS, I wanted to make something fairly interesting.
Does anyone else think there is some kind of agenda to make movies with Aliens in them spun in a negative light? I'll give a decent list of ones I
think are showing Aliens in a negative way, and also ones that are positive. Either way there seem to be a lot more negative than positive, and even
then you could put some of the ones I've labeled positive into the negative column for numerous reasons.
Perhaps it's because of the human emotion of fear of the unknown, and the movie industry just uses that to take advantage of our wallets. Either
way, I feel it's an interesting concept.
Here's the list:
1. Alien Quadrilogy
- If this isn't negative, I don't know what is...
- Aliens that hunt humans.
3. District 9
- We make Alien vistitors into refugees.
4. The Thing
- A shape-shifting alien that kills.
5. Invasion Of the Body Snatchers
(Plus remakes) - Alien invasion movie.
6. War Of the Worlds
(Both) - Alien invasion movie.
7. Independence Day
- A ridiculous alien invasion movie.
8. Mars Attacks!
- Alien invasion movie, but more of a spoof than anything.
- Another alien invasion.
10. Starship Troopers
- Insect-like aliens that just kill.
- Alien invasion.
1. 2001: A Space Odyssey
- Nothing bad really happens here, so I put it in the positive light, plus
it's one of the greatest ever so...
2. E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial
- A good alien that just wants to phone home.
3. Close Encounters Of the Third Kind
- Alien visitors with positive intentions - There are
abductions, but they turn out to be good abductions.
4. Flight Of the Navigator
- Alien time travel movie
- We make contact, but never really have proof, sound familiar?
6. The Day the Earth Stood Still
- Aliens want to help us in the end.
- An alien with good intentions that wants to go home.
8. The Abyss
- Aliens that want to help.
Well that's all I could think of at the moment. I'm sure I've left multiple out, so feel free to add to the list, or just discuss... If any of
you haven't seen some of these, I would highly recommend watching them.
