The 9 Lamest Alien Visitors in Movie History
A Sgt Pembry Joint ....................................................Saturday, May 2, 2009

However Keanu Reeves is remembered for his performance as interstellar messenger Klaatu in the remake of The Day The Earth Stood Still (just released on DVD), the character itself will remain one of the greatest extra-terrestrial visitors in film.

He was played by Michael Rennie in the original 1951 version of TDTEST, which, surrounded by a plethora of outrageous depictions of invaders from outer space, stood out in its time because of its serious portrayal of an alien landing and the importance of the message that accompanies it.

We’ve been blessed with a number of fantastic films over the years which have followed TDTEST’s lead – namely 2001: A Space Odyssey (1969), Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977), E.T. – The Extra-Terrestrial (1982), Starman (1984), The Abyss (1989) and even Predator (1987)

But, as Axel Rose once sang, ‘every rose has its thorn’, and there has been so many more movies that have completely missed the mark when it comes to a decent story involving a UFO and its occupants.

This list focuses on the non-invading, usually non-threatening extra-terrestrial visitors to Earth, kinda like those from the movies mentioned above – only alot more ‘lame’.

These are the guys and girls from across the galaxy who have arrived on this planet accidentally or been sent on a special mission – and basically acted like ‘complete dicks from outer space’.

The sort of creatures that make you wish we really were alone. Again, the line is going to be a little blurry in places when it comes to lumping them all in the same basket, but … hey, you get that…
