They Live has got great aliens
5 second plot: A lonesome cowboy comes to town looking for a job and a place to stay. He stumbles upon a box of special sunglasses. If you put them on, you see the world as it really is: ruled by ugly ass aliens. The time has come to fight back.
5 second review: The aliens are truly legendary classic cult stuff, but the movie itself sucks big time. The problem is that there is simply not very much going on. The biggest action sequence is a fight between the two guys that will be working together to bring down the aliens. And this fight just keeps on going and going up to a point where it gets ridiculous.
