Or spit in their face...

Though probably the humidity in the air would kill them as soon as they step into earth's atmosphere. Yeah, that was truly one of the dumbest things ever in a movie, and that says a lot.

Power Rangers (2017). I honestly didn't think it was that bad. I get the whole cringey teen angst complaints but I thought it made their characters interesting. The action was super short but it was entertaining.

All The Planet of The Apes movies. I really liked them, but some of my friends thought they were boring.

YES! They're so good

Well, Conquest and Tim Burton's are both a little boring and War wasn't nearly as good as Rise and Dawn but oh my gosh when I gave the series a chance a couple years ago it changed my life
It's such a fascinating study in humanity and I'm crossing my fingers for a fourth in the Reboot series

(I agree with the Chucky series too! They can be sort of hit-or-miss but I loved the first two Child's Play movies and always catch the new ones when they come out. I'm not sure how I feel about the upcoming reboot where he's more of a killer robot instead of possessed by a serial killer though I'm really going to miss Brad Dourif's hilarious voice )

Honestly I didn't even care about that aspect much when I watched it. Now that I know how much people were bothered by this I guess I can say they have a point.

Independence Day Resurgence, the first time I saw it I didn't really like it, I watched it again a few days ago and it's not as bad as I remember sure it's not as good as the first movie but it's good nonetheless.

The new mothership looks like compared to the mothership from the war of 96, I wish they had kept the original design of the alien ships while updating them a little bit instead of drastically changing the appearance of the ships.

The reason why I didn't really like it the first time was because I was watching a poor quality download that was mostly dark in some scenes, I couldn't find a better quality download at the time.

Another one was Mysterious Island. The stop motion monsters are magnificent, especially the giant bees. . (Based loosely on the 1874 novel by Jules Verne.)

Titanic - It was good in its day and is still a guilty pleasure.

Alien 3 is a great film and underrated by some.

If they made just a few tweaks to it, it'd have overshadowed Aliens imo. They needed to flesh out the prison system a bit more I think, that's where it falls over - I don't care about most of those criminals. Despite that, it's still a good film.
