For me it has to be The Day The Earth Stood Still. The idea that someone out there cares enough to try and make Humans see the error of their ways and shut down the whole planet, except for airplanes and hospitals, speaks to me in a way that says there are peaceful friendly aliens out there that want the best for us.
Probably a very naive way of looking at things, given our propensity for shooting first and asking questions after, but I like to think that even if we are still a very violent race, there is hope for us.
i listed it in an earlier post, "the ice pirates" made in the early 80's, in a universe were water is scarce and everyone wants it. its a screwball comedy film, funny with good effects and storyline. kind of a comedy star wars
i highly reccomend it
Definitely Contact is one of the great alien movies out there, at the same level as Close Encounters... It was based on a book by the great Carl Sagan and it deals with a sort of alternative way of making contact (not in the usual film-esque way with huge ships coming to Earth) which is absolutely interesting and will probably leave you thinking about it after seeing the movie.

Flight of the Navigator, easily another favorite. Anybody ever catch the parallels between that craft and some of Lazar's descriptions?
Great and classic UFO flick.
