Ever since I've heard of the TV show called ancient aliens, I've become fascinated with the sci fi concept of extraterrestrials and the possibility of extraterrestrials existing. In this list, I'll name some very neat movies about extraterrestrials, I'll try to not to list movies with the cliché "Aliens trying to invade and destroy earth".
Yes it shouldn't be surprising that it's on here. Not only does it have great theme song but it also has a interesting story. Instead of depicting the aliens as bloodthirsty parasites, it depicts aliens(at least ET's species) as friendly beings.
2.) Close Encounter of the Third Kind
A movie that shows a possible scenario of what could happen if aliens end up visiting Earth.
3.) The 4th Kind
A mockumentary/found footage sci fi horror movie. It was filmed in a way to try to trick the viewer into thinking it's based on "real events". The intentions of the aliens are left unanswered. It got some controversy but it was unique.
4.) The Gracefield Incident
I didn't know what to expect from the movie when I first saw it. I thought it was going to be another cliché alien horror movie but it was much different than I thought it would be. It has a very good ending.
It's unique because it features a species of extraterrestrials as technologically inferior to humans. Instead of aliens visiting or invading Earth it shows what could happen if Humans invade a technologically inferior extraterrestrial civilization.
6.) The Day the Earth Stood Still (2008 version)
A movie about a alien who has healing and telekinetic powers that inhabits a human host.
7.) District 9
A movie about a group of physically ill aliens who visit Johannesburg South Africa and are confined in a special camp where they get mistreated by a multinational military. Eventually the aliens fight back.
