Newsarama.com has a list of the top five movie alien invasions. This coincides with the new release of The Day the Earth stood still.

I’m not sure I agree with all of them.

#1 The 70’s version of Invasion of the Body Snatchers. Excellent.
#2 Men in Black? Really? Mmmm, I don’t know.
#3. Killer Klowns from Outer Space Good, solid cult classic. 3rd greatest of all time? Not so much.
#4 ’53 version of War of the Worlds. Nice. Although the article is less than kind to Spielberg’s remake, I thought it did more right than it did wrong.
#5 Independence Day. Yeah. Solid alien invasion flick.

Really I disagree with 2 out of the 5. I suppose it would behoove me to suggest which movies should replace those, wouldn’t it?

Give me time.
