Unusual Movies about UFO's and Aliens

The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across The Eighth Dimension

A lengthy title for a durable hip sci-fi spoof. Aurora sent us this poignant synopsis: "My favorite UFO film is The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the Eighth Dimension. Red 'Lectroids in bad plaid polyester suits vs. Black 'Lectroids with dreadlocks and Jamaican accents. Every single one of them named John. Plus Buckaroo and his Hong Kong Cavaliers, and the Blue Blaze Irregulars! Mwhahahahahaa!"

Thanks, Aurora. 1983. Rated PG. 100 minutes.

Repo Man

Harry Dean Stanton gives an Oscar deserving performance as a burned out car repossessor. While teaching Emilio Estevez the tricks of the craft, they repo a Dodge Dart with a radioactive alien in the trunk. Very hip. 1984. 95 minutes.

Mars Attacks!

The jury is still out on this Tim Burton big budget spoof of War of The Worlds. A second viewing made me a trifle more inclined to like it. The cast includes absolutely everyone. 1996. 103 minutes. Rated PG 13.

Brother From Another Planet

UFO Movies - The Man Who Fell to EarthEarly Jon Sayles story of a black alien who gets pulled into some very funny situations after landing in New York. This would have made a good 1/2 hour Twilight Zone but tends to wear thin after an hour. 104 minutes. 1984.

Earth Girls Are Easy

This was made when Geena Davis and Jeff Goldblum couldn't get enough of each other. Look for an early appearance of Jim Carey and Damon Wayans. Lotsa schtick. 1989. 100 minutes. PG.

The Man Who Fell to Earth

If David Bowie were not in this poorly photographed version of an excellent book, it would suck. It's the story of a brilliant alien who uses his superior technical know-how to attain wealth while stranded on earth. Wealth does not bring happiness, and he devolves into an alien alcoholic. Look for the British original; it drags on 30 minutes longer than the US cut. 1976. 140 minutes. Rated R, but just barely.

Liquid Sky

One of very few "UFO punk movies", Liquid Sky gets nasty and may seem a trifle dated. You may really like it. 1983. 110 minutes.
