What Are The Best Aliens in Movies?

Aliens seem to be go to characters in popular movies. I love sci-fi that has aliens among the list of characters. From Star Wars to Arrival, the different take on the extraterrestrial by writers and directors amazes me. Are aliens invading, here as friends, or are humans out in the universe, where we are just as alien to them as they are to us?

In this video, I go through my top five favorite aliens in film. It was a hard decision, being a huge fan of sci-fi. What are your favorite creative extraterrestrials?
