Skyline the Movie Trailer - Ufo invasion and review

Yet another big Ufo movie release coming out and yet again this one is also  based in LA (I mean whats up with that?). People in the Ufo community are questioning the benefit of this new movie. It does seem very fear based indeed, especially as reiterates the recent erie warnings from physicist Steven Hawking about the hostile dangers of Ufo visitation...Long from the friendly days of ET and Encounters of the Third Kind many question if hollywood has some agenda with this new fear based approach to first contact . (see my comments below about Dr. Carol Rosin's predictions.)

The scary Hawking logic runs deep through the movie: "History shows us the more advanced Civilization always wins .. remember what happened when Christopher columbus invaded america? .. it didn't work out to good for the native's didn't it? .. well thats what's going to happen to humans when (Et's) arrive.. were done for"
Here's The trailer :


We have to remember that this is all fiction - a quick reality check here is that Mr Hawking overlooked the simple  fact that Ufos have been visiting us for hundreds of years so this means if they were hostile i can assure you that you wouldn't be reading this today!...

Skyline - Movie story..
After a late night party, a group of friends are awoken in the dead of the night by an eerie light beaming through the window. Like moths to a flame, the light source is drawing people outside before they suddenly vanish into the air. They soon discover an otherwordly force is swallowing the entire human population off the face of the earth. Now our band of survivors must fight for their lives as the world unravels around them.

Official synopsis: In the sci-fi thriller Skyline, strange lights descend on the city of Los Angeles, drawing people outside like moths to a flame where an extraterrestrial force threatens to swallow the entire human population off the face of the Earth. Don't Look Up.


There is footage of the aliens launching their “human collecting pods” and it all seems quite grewsome. The shot of all of those people being sucked up into the alien machines screaming all the way is quite freaky. More of this trailer at the movie's official site here

The benefit from  hollywood exploring the Ufo topic again does reflect the major change in public interest towards  the subject and it does get people looking up the skies ... but does this fear based approach towards first contact outway all these benefits ? What do you think? - please make a reply to this post.

Also are these movies a sign?  ..errie reminders from Dr Rosin's speech (video here) 
Fairchild Industries Corporate Manager, Von Braun’s Spokesperson, Dr. Carol Rosin[In 1974, founder of modern rocket science Wernher] Von Braun told me that the reasons for space-based weaponry were all based on a lie. He said the strategy was to use scare tactics—that first the Russians, then terrorists are going to be considered the enemy. The next enemy was asteroids.( remember all those asteroid movies from the 90's?) and  “The last card is the alien card. We are going to have to build space-based weapons against aliens, and all of it is a lie.”….I was at a meeting in Fairchild Industries in the War Room. The conversation [was] about how they were going to antagonize these enemies and at some point, there was going to be a Gulf War (&this was back in 1977)...

So Steven hawking, now these new movies...  was Von Braun onto something ..?

It's the usual catastrophic end of the worldy stuff. They just pick up on current thought trends and turn them into movies. They obviously realise that the world is becoming more savvy about the et presence - makes for easy marketing..and everyone like the special effects. We'll all just have to figure it out for ourselves won't we :)

wat a load of shit scare mongering this is wat nut bags have been trying to conclude from more nutural films in the past like aliens, which is obviously science fiction and a great movie i might add, and turn it into fear and popular belief, which isnt neccisary or overly entertaining from a film point of view and only furthers bias against a more factual veiw on other world visitation to earth and alien existence

It's meant to get you believing aliens took the people when the church get's raptured up to heaven soon.

Will be very scary for those who are left behind as you'll have 7 years of increasing hell on earth before the 2nd return of Jesus Christ.

I don't think this movie will go any deeper than just an effects movie. If you go to IMDB and look at the credits list - everyone involved was a former special effects artist for other movies. This is always a red flag that the story will blow, but the effects will be pretty decent.

That is exactly what this movie is doing. Preparing for an answer to Millions of suddenly missing people. This is not the only prepation happening. It has been going on for about 50 years. Movies, Mediums and New age books have stated of some sudden future disappearance. Mainly of those who are interfering with change, enlightenment and evolution. The Bible tells of the True followers of Jesus will be gathered up to meet Him in the air before God lifts His hand of protection on this Earth. (1 Thes.4:16-17) The most recent disclosure of ET craft over our Nuclear sites to disarm missles is only a ploy by Satan to make us believe that they want to save us from destroying each other.Read the Bible See what Jesus did at the cross to save us and Keep looking up.

This last comment rings loudly of truth. All the more reason to fulfill the Great Commission in these last days. I can't wait to see Him. He is Mighty!!

AND mighty to save! Jesus took the wrath, punishment for our sins, rebellion against God. As Satan did desiring to be god or like God. Satan and fallen angels do not have a chance of salvation. Jesus, God with us, this forgiveness is only for people who cry out to Him for forgiveness. Satan as described in the Bible is a deceiver,father of lies and murderer. Beware he will come as a angel of light. OR an Alien to save us.

This was the most entertaining post I have read all day. Cannot wait to see skyline. Not expecting much of a plot either. And also cannot wait to see Jesus too. Both favorite. Jesus more favorite!

You indicated that Hawking overlooked the fact that aliens have been visiting us already and if they were hostile, we would have known by now.

Maybe I'm a tad confused but where is there definitive proof aliens are visiting us? Don't get my question wrong, I am not knocking the possibility of aliens and alien visitations or diminishing the view points of those who do believe.

What I am saying is that, to date, I have never seen 1 piece of evidence that proves aliens are here. If you are basing your review, specifically your line about fact of aliens here, on a piece of evidence you have seen, please share because I would love to see it.

Again, please don't take this knocking down anyone's personal views. I am simply asking.

Ahmm, I kinda look forward to a good CGI film about UFO stuff but hope for a little bit of a story line. As far as the Jesus, Scare tactic and They are already here stuff, wheres the proof...Well shut up being a plonker and hope you enjoy the film. OH, yes, is Jesus in it or not cos I really dont want him prancing around forgiving aliens and stuff that would ruine it for me :)

Movie wasnt that good. UFO movies overall
are crappy, they dont exist anyway.
Theres all kinds of fake movies, but
no real concrete evidence.
The stuff you see is all propaganda to scare the peasants of the world, mainly Americans who believe in Jesus Christ, are uneducated and allow themselves to be
ripped off by the millionaire bankers.

The special FX were awesome and the show was great in theory, it just didn't translate well to the screen. My guess is it will be a future cult classic.
