Second feature of the 5 bests is the best alien invasion films. Science fiction is my genre, alien films are a keen interest and alien invasion films are just damn cool! It’s a good mixture of these types of films. I have featured action heavy films to dramatic paranoia and all of which I would recommend to my readers. If anyone has any film they are adamant that I have over looked, please point that film out to me because I am not an expert even though I have watched a lot of these films. Please enjoy the list and comment at the end.

Frankenweenie is a fun and beautiful homage to classic monster movies like Frankenstein but more aimed for kids. This film proves that Tim Burton can still make great films like ‘A Nightmare Before Christmas’ and ‘Beetle Juice’. The story is clever and unique but can easily connect to its audience with an understanding of dealing with loss. The characters where weird and crazy as with most Burton creations and he clearly had a lot of fun mixing in all of those stereotypical monster movie themes and he is probably the best person to do it, Dr Frankenstein and Igor being the most prominent . It takes some confidence to make a kids film in black and white and although it may have cost them some box office money I think it really works to honour the sources it’s based off.
