1.0 out of 5 stars This means Silly, 10 Aug. 2008
This review is from: Close Encounters of the Third Kind--Collector's Edition (two discs) [DVD] [1978] (DVD)
Special effects should be convincing, even when this was made, but relying on an upside down turned car and mashed tatties and dodgy miniatures spoils the story. As if aliens are going to travel all this way after kidnapping pilots and sailors just to have a jam session on top of a mountain with a hippy scientist and his organ. Like Jean Michel Jarre and ET having a duet. Its silly. Aliens also are supposed to be green and not like the ones here. Aliens are hardly going to visit us if this is what we think of them. Unless they are the For Mash Get Smash aliens which is where the mashed potato could actually mean something.

Hello Richard,

I don't do meet and greets I'm afraid, the canal system allows me to keep moving, just like an aquatic version of The Littlest Hobo, only less hairy and better colours with less good deeds. I said they are supposed to be green not actually green, I have never had contact with green faced alien beings, I shun the green faces. I know an awful lot about alien civilisations that do not exist though. Their ships are powered by old Wispa's. They didn't disappear like the Facebook con said. In fact, a years supply batch was commandeered due to necessity by a small fleet of aliens with small feet.

With a gaseous thermic oscillator, the air trapped in the bubbles can be agitated and turned into a fuel source. This can also lead to terrible side effects for humans. Eating out-of-date Wispa's means ingesting the stale air in the bubbles and can cause all sorts of alimentary conditions such as gaseous clay, unexpected air expulsion and liquid Wispa bubbly poos.

Aliens do not have a home planet. They are always aliens to everywhere or else they would be Martians, or Thetans, Cretans, Cretins or Fuzzies. Alien denotes not from round these parts.

Money is an outdated concept with aliens. They use an IOU system of paper notes promising favours in return for goods and services. This system has been exploited over the years with IOU shark companies buying debts up and refinancing the IOU's with a view to having the favours for themselves or re-IOUed out to another client. It is messy in outer space too with the cosmic credit crunch reducing the number of UFO sightings drastically.

They each have a personal pocket deity. These pocket Gods come in all sorts of varieties, such as warrior gods, driving fast gods, making kettles boil faster gods, catching balls gods, landing spaceship safely gods etc.

Aliens only eat smash for convenience. Adding powdered water to the granules saves on the amount of water then required to re-hydrate the mush mash.

The blue aliens you refer to are interstellar porn stars. They have more orifices and appendages than human porn stars could ever hope to have. Even a human with additional things to stick in or things to stick things in through surgery, a blue alien cannot be competed with for shear sexual functionality.

Hope this clears things up. If not, try anti-biotics.

Ramsey Tupper came along
Thinking himself so smart
Damning the choices of others
Hoping they'd take it to heart.

He'd pick on their movies
And laugh at their CDs
Spreading his comments
Like some virtual disease

He thinks he's so funny
And so do his mates
Loving the maelstrom
His mocking creates.

But the truth of it is
He likes only to mock
To make up for the fact
He has a very small intellect

She loves you yeah, yeah, yeah,
She loves me not, yeah, yeah, yeah,

R (3,3,3) = 17

T (1,1,1) = x

x = mc< p*m(y*x)

Where x is bi-fractional, use y's upper limit to cross equational anomalies. A workable formula for the origin...
