A lovely couple move to a lovely town, have trouble with a couple of yuppies, and strike a deal to get rid of them.

A fast-paced, great movie. Not horror, and not comedy, just quality bubblegum. It's worth a watch once, but in my mind it's not good enough to be a "classic".

A sample from Mars comes out of hibernation.

If you end the movie at the correct point, then it's a fine movie. Otherwise it's shit.

A girl goes insane or maybe it's aliens; who knows.

It had a lot of hope, but the writer changed anti-psychotic prescriptions mid-way and the movie went stupid.

Young adults go on a vacation on Labor Day weekend, but their neighbor has an abduction story.

Overall a decent enough movie with a weak ending. It could have had a lot more subtlety and explanation woven throughout to create a more complete movie-universe.

People have a refreshing nap and wake up to be suspiciously-nice.

A remake of a remake of an adaptation of a book. And it shows. At least Nicole Kidperson is hot.

Be certain to skip the first couple of minutes; they are a horrible horrible spoiler.

Survivors of an alien attack crash next to a prison and learn that the alien came with them.

This was my first movie with a shaved-headed woman. I guess I was all "oh no she di'int, now wesa gettin serioooos".

In my mind, the franchise was significantly weakened by this movie. It just didn't "feel right". Perhaps the previous two were so good that they became too tough to follow, but after yet another re-watch this movie really just doesn't seem all that good.

Waking from long hibernation, a woman claims to be the survivor of an alien attack from a planetoid which has since become a terraforming colony.

A direct descendent of Alien - (1979 movie), this movie not only builds on but improves on the movie, turning this into a blockbuster franchise.
