List: Top 3 Alien Invasion Movies

This week on Episode 175, we discussed our Top 3 alien invasion movies coming off the heels of our review of Independence Day: Resurgence. While some alien invasion movies have been used to represent some sort of political and social commentary, others have been just pure spectacle and fun. Regardless of direction, there have been some great alien invasion movies over the decades and we came up with some pretty great lists that we hope you enjoy.

On that note, which alien invasion movies would make your list? Here are the one’s that made ours:

1) The Thing
2) Invasion of the Body Snatchers (’79)
3) Attack the Block


1) District 9
2) Men in Black
3) Edge of Tomorrow


1) The Avengers
