i want to produce a movie

alienso i had the chance to watch district 9 this past weekend.  i heard it was really good and it was getting good reviews and i kinda wanted to watch it but since i heard from people that it was really good, it made me want to watch it more.  to those that haven’t watched it.  it’s pretty good, not really good.  i don’t want to hype it up like other people did for me.  i’d recommend watching it, but there’s nothing that amazing about it.  i think i was expecting something crazy, but it was pretty much like a normal movie with aliens in it.

anyways, the movie got me thinking about the alien movie genre.  district 9, independence day, signs, the alien series, et, war of the worlds,etc.  you know, all those movies.  it made me think about what they all had in common.  in all these movies, the aliens are always uglier than the human race and their technology and weaponry is always more advanced than the human race’s.

i propose i produce a movie where the aliens are way more attractive than humans and their weapons are way inferior to ours.  think about it.  who are we to say that aliens in movies have to be ugly?  maybe it’s some kind of human pride that makes us believe we are the best looking beings in the universe.  but what if a movie portrayed an alien species that was way more attractive than we were?  i mean, i don’t even know what that would look like, but i’m sure someone could make it happen.  and you know how a lot of times our weapons are useless against the “superior” alien weapons?  what if our weapons were the more advanced weapons between the two races?  and that their weapons had no effect on us?  i would love to watch a movie like that.  i must say, it does sound like a comedy, but i’m sure we could work it into an action/thriller movie somehow.

who’s with me?  would you want to see a movie like this?
