Hi everybody!

Welcome to my new Popularity contest, devoted to the Alien Invasion movies.

The rules are simple. Two movies are randomly chosen from the list and you vote for the one you think is better. The movie who loses is eliminated and the remaining one will move to the next round.

You can check the Nominations to see who is already out.

Let the contest begin!

........................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

First matchup - Space Battleship Yamato (2010) vs Battle : Los Angeles (2011). My vote is for Space Battleship Yamato.

I'm embarrassed to say I haven't seen either.

But I loved the cartoon Space Battleship Yamato (2010) was based on.

So I got to pass this round!

Never seen Pixels so Pacific Rim. Your choice if you want to count my vote for this one or not.

Cloverfield was the better movie but I'd give my vote to The 5th Wave. Mainly because a movie where intelligent species invade is just more alien like and interesting to me.

This is indeed a closer one, I liked the plot a little more in Cloverfield here than the 5th Wave but it honestly wasn't close to the first movie imo, so I'll vote The 5th Wave.

I enjoyed both but I think Ender's Game is a bit underrated imo so I'll go with Ender's Game.

Would recommend Faculty for sure. A great and underrated classic from the 90s.

@skywalker95: I'm planning on watching it. I read what it's about and it definitely seems like it's worth a watch given the aliens are parasites. Reminds me of Invasion of the Body Snatchers.

Apparently it's getting a sequel too.
