Falling Skies


Falling Skies


Is this destined to be simply another alien invasion movie that scares the daylights out of most of us? Or will it have more to offer than merely a chaotic aftermath depicting the results from heartless alien beings that want to take over this magnificent planet. This television series starts out at six months post invasion and we find the citizenry has been cut down to a few survivors who have banded together in hopes of fighting back. Citizen soldiers have been chosen in an attempt to protect those in their care and set up an insurgency campaign that will fend off the aliens. The aliens and their ships are fascinating to look at, mostly thanks to the imagination of Spielberg and DreamWorks Television, but it remains to be seen if this has much originality in the story line considering the basic idea has been redone many times. As the citizens are cruelly tested on a daily basis an ex college professor played by Noah Wyle (Librarian movies, ER) leads a group of civilians and soldiers as they strive to win against alien forces who are intent on occupying earth. Ann Glass, Drew Roy, and Maxim Knight also star.

The Neighbors

Sci-Fi & Fantasy
When you and your family just move into a luxurious gated community, all you have to expect are tranquility, peace and mutual respect of all the neighbors. But, what if "all of the neighbors" are the alien forms of extraterrestrial life, and you and your beloved ones are the only humans in this "society"? What will you do? Claim your real estate agent to cancel the contract? Pass all the extraterrestrials to FBI to conduct the inhumane experiments? No, you will teach them humanity and learn from them how to be a "good family" instead. Exactly as Weaver family does in this weird and sometimes "goofy" television series, The Neighbors centered on their unusual life among the aliens. But don't consider their neighbors some sort of ugly monsters"¦ Oh, yeah, of course they have some green goo ejaculated from ears when they cry, and, of course, they prefer to eat using eyes, not mouth, but they so adorable! So, you have ever intent to pass them to official for some cruel test, please, don't do it! Although, the TV show has gained mostly negative receptions from critics, it worth watching for many reasons. First of all it was created by legendary Dan Fogelman, and all the critics negative reviews are just a result of high expectations for these series. The second reason is the ensemble cast: the star of Entourage, Modern Family, Still Standing and ER - Jami Gertz looks natural in the extraterrestrial surrounding of Ningning Deng, Tracy Weisert and Mobin Khan.
