This is me hijacking my own thread titled "Hmm..." that I posted a few days ago. The topic of stupid aliens was mentioned there http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif which prompted me to ask this off-topic poll question to the community:

1) Who/what was the most cun'ning bad-*** alien to EVER come to Earth(or Earth orbit) on the big screen?

And:

2) Who/what was the stupidest and worst excuse for an alien?

My answere: 1) Predator http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/icon_twisted.gif
2) The Green-Slime http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/34.gif

Stoopidest "Concept" of an Alien Ever:

The Reese's Pieces alien (1984).

Taken from literature, it has to be the Traveler Fithp from Niven & Pournelle's Footfall. Think of a herd of talking baby elephants from space with branched trunks instead of hands, with orbital weapons and a plan to drop an asteroid into the Indian Ocean in order to change the climate more to their liking...

Baddest alien on the big screen is probably "mother alien" from the Aliens series.

Worst is without a doubt the beachball in Dark Star http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Giger's alien is probably the best, but I think a really strong contender is John Carpenter's The Thing. That movie is badass.

Im glad someone mentioned John Carpenters "The Thing", that film is some scary ****. Im 26 now but still cannot watch it on my own with the lights off. The scene where he is about to give CPR to that dead guy......gets me every time.

In the UK, the Daleks (Look 'em up in Wiki) used to score pretty highly as bad asses.... But not in this household. Mind you it's taken a shed load of time for 'em just to handle something as mundane as stairs.

Right now I'd have to say that our political leaders in the UK show too many signs of being alien clones. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

That deals with the bad asses, stupidest see the immediately above....

How do you spell dissent again ?

What about Rodman (scary and funny)? Steve Ballmer (Microsoft CEO- plain scary - search for "dance monkeyboy" to see why). Plain funny hmmmm.... The Ferengi characters in DS9 were great for comedy.
