Do you believe in aliens from outer space? Regardless of how you answer... what are the best alien invasion films?


You may not consider Bolt to be chock-full of great one liners (Give it a shot, you will be surprised... put a pin in it!) But, one of the best lines from the film was from a pigeon who knew the answer to help a struggling  action television show out of a low point.  

Introduce.... ALIENS!* 

The alien invasion of earth has been part of the cinematic universe from the beginning of film history. The current re-boot of Independence Day has once again pushed forward the consideration, 'Is there something or someone out there?' 

Before getting too existential with this question, the crack team at Russelling Reviews thought it what would be more fun is to consider the best alien invasion films. 
Whether you believe in extra-terrestrials is irrelevant, what is more important is to consider the what film best represents a potential alien invasion.
