ahhh Gazrok I was trying to make a funny.
I wasn't referring to the energy beings,
I was talking about these greys
Anyway, as for what the OP was saying about there's no movies with grey aliens...
I think it's kind of silly, especially when he just takes a movie like Fire in the Sky or Communion and says no, can't include this one...
When I think of movies with greys Communion and Fire in the Sky come to mind right away, but I think the reason why there aren't more big Hollywood
blockbuster movies about grey aliens has more to do with issues of intellectual property and character design than the greys being to "alien to depict
accurately in a film". It's been done before.

Let's examine the common attributes:
1. Lack of emotion
2. Little to no speaking (even through telepathy)
3. Not exactly terrifying (short, no fierce teeth, claws, etc.)
4. All they seem to do is observe or medical exams...hardly exciting
Simply put, these guys don't really offer up a great movie character...so it doesn't surprise me they aren't more center-stage.
I totally agree with you on this. You can only do that classic shot of the viewer laying on the operating table, looking up at the bright white light
while balloon headed aliens lean in overhead so many times before it loses all of it's shock value.
