    The movie, The Arrival with Charlie sheen should have been mentioned. It's not well known, but was pretty good. I agree with the list, but not the order. But, the order is a small thing.

    "...drawing the line at all-out invasions and conflicts" [0:42], rules out 'First Contact' - with the Vulcans - because of Borg gatecrashers.

    "Forbidden Planet" was the Grandfather of all sci-fi movies. But it wasn't a "first contact" movie. It was meant to retrieve a group of explorers who were deemed missing on a venture to Altair IV. I believe Gene Roddenberry was mesmerized by the move which prompted him to write the first pilot of "Star Trek".

    Lord I am out voted😆 I very much disliked everything about the movie contact. What I remembered most was how I resented being told I did not make the grade and would NEVER receive the gold star ⭐️, because I am not worthy. Yuck. What an awful movie.

    wow... all movies that you could dig up were before 2000... and the one that wasnt... wasnt even first contact... not to mention that most of those movies had childish knowledge about sci-fi and by todays standards... anyone younger than 30 would find them litterally crap... for me it seems like top 10 from the bottom of the list...

    How could you have left out Tarkovsky's SOLARIS? John Carpenter's THE THING? Or, for that matter, IT CAME FROM OUTER SPACE? FORBIDDEN PLANET? THE ANDROMEDA STRAIN? These films can easily match, or surpass, the ones you've cited here (with the possible exception of 2001, although I'd rate SOLARIS above it).

    All movies mentioned would be in my top 10, but I'd honestly have The Arrival at number 1 spot, for there is no film like it.
    After watching Annihilation, I'd put that in the list as well, again, it is unique and deserves a mention.

  • Alan Henderson

    The Day the Earth Stood Still is a good movie if one can put up with the fact that Klaatu is an idiot. He thinks that gifting the Earthlings who know nothing of his intentions with a mysterious gadget that makes a sudden movement will set the crowd at ease. He doesn't even open up about his mission until well into the film when he's pulled off some stunts like the blackout that the Earthlings dont' know how to interpret. The length of the film is dependent on Klaatu's suckage as a diplomat.

    "The Arrival" is a HIGHLY underrated first contact type movie. If you haven't seen it, I find the communication issues highly credible, and likely to be what happens should we ever encounter another civilization- unless of course we're a lot closer to that civilization- and I don't just mean geographically....!

    What about the original "Thing"? IMHO TDTESS is the #1 here. Again, the original , not the total garbage remake.

  • theoparke
    theoparke Месяц назад

    V the original miniseries should have gotten an honorable mention. Yes, I know it's made for TV, but I still hold it is at least as good as any one of these films. Also, CE3K is a solid #1, but Contact should have been #2. I would also have done away with District 9 (as it's not a first contact film) and added Independence Day. Will Smith punches an alien "Welcome to Earth" and munches a cigar: "Now that's what I call a close encounter."

  • Odysseus Rex

    Frankly, I would not have given Star Trek: First Contact even an honorable mention. The titular first contact is actually a very minor aspect of the plot. It could easily have been edited out and no one would have noticed.
