Twenty Awesome Aliens in Movies

Alien

There’s an allure about beings from another planet.  We as humans are always interested in the unknown, and since the time of our grandparents, cinema has been infatuated with this unknown as well. Whether it’s an invasion of saucers, or a disgusting drool filled creature, aliens have been a staple in movies for a long time.  I’ve decided to select twenty out of this world beings that I personally think are awesome. Ranging from completely badass to completely ridiculous, here are my favorite 20 aliens in movies.

Predator

Aliens in Movies

Hands down one of the best, if not the best alien in all of cinema.  The face, the body, the strength, the disguise, hell even the fact that he self destructs which causes a mushroom cloud is badass.  “what da hell arrrre you.”  And that sinister laugh…forget about it.

Alien

I’m scared just looking at this picture.  This “perfect” life form will forever be burned into the brains of any person that sees any of the Alien movies.   Unstoppable.

ET

Aliens in Movies

The cutest, lovable little child alien, ET.  “ET phone home.”  ET sticks out his middle finger and it lights up.  ET can make bicycles fly.  ET has that cute walk and long neck.  He’s so funny!  I love ET.

Starman

Aliens in Movies

Jeff Bridges was awesome in this movie.  I’d have to say my favorite part is when he sings “New York New York” in the car.  It’s incredible.  That and when he punches that redneck and spits blood.

Water in the Abyss

Aliens in Movies

This is Cameron using that liquid effect before Terminator 2.  Everything about The Abyss is awesome.  And these aliens that can manipulate water are no exception.

Edgar in Men in Black

Aliens in Movies

I mean who wouldn’t love a giant cockroach that can squeeze into Vincent D’Onofrio’s skin?

Three Boobed Chick in Total Recall

Aliens in Movies

Three of them?  Enough Said.

Space Pirates in Fifth Element

Aliens in Movies

I’m actually a fan of how dumb these guys are.  I love the scene when they’re all playing with that crazy gun that Zorg sells to them.  Plus they just look funny.

Meathead in Meatballs 2

Aliens in Movies

Perhaps my favorite alien in any movie, Meathead is the spoof of ET.  All he wants to do is fit in at summer camp.  And clearly you can see that his gray rubbery body doesn’t help.  Oh wait, put on a rain hat!  Perfect, now he’s assimilated.

Jeriba Shigan in Enemy Mine

Aliens in Movies

Louis Gossett Jr.  Enemy Mine is a mixed bag in my opinion.  Some people love the flick and some hate it.  I’ll let the readers argue this one out.

Kitty in Cocoon

Aliens in Movies

Played by Raquel Welch’s daughter Tahnee.  The fact that Tahnee posed nude in Playboy is reason enough for this addition.  Plus I love the term “Share Ourselves” meaning to have sex.

Grig in The Last Starfighter

Aliens in Movies

This is another movie that gets a mixed bag of reviews.  Although there’s tons of high comedy in this flick.  Grig is clearly one of the reasons this movie gets a thumbs up in my opinion.

Wiploc in Earth Girls are Easy

Aliens in Movies

Played by Jim Carrey (the red one).  You actually get a chance to see Carrey being pretty funny at times.  The movie is of course, horrible, but he and Damon Waynes are actually good in this flick.

Martian Call Girl in Mars Attacks

Aliens in Movies

A martian hooker?  Enough said.

Marybeth Hutchinson in The Faculty

Aliens in Movies

Played by Laura Harris.  Look man, you see her naked one second and then she’s the queen alien in the next.  That’s pretty impressive in my book.

Phil Gordian in The Arrival

Aliens in Movies

Ron Silver is perhaps one of the most underrated prick actors of our time.  I hate him in every single movie I’ve seen him in.  Which to me means he’s doing his job.  Same goes for The Arrival, which I think is a very underrated Sci-Fi flick.

Robert in Village of the Damned – 1995

Aliens in Movies

Played by Cody Darkin (guy on the right), Also check out David played by Thomas Dekker who is now in Sarah Conner Chronicles but used to be in Seinfeld.  These kids are badass, period.

Celeste Martin in My Stepmother is an Alien

Aliens in Movies

Hot chick as an alien?  You know my policy.

Sil in Species

Aliens in Movies

See comment above.

Jabba the Hut

Aliens in Movies

You didn’t think I’d leave this guy out did you?
