Huh… would you look at that? Turns out It is driving September toward a stronger-than-expected finish. Steven and Pete take on Homestar Runner, Ask-a-Ninja, more Trek, and the merits of digital downloading. We have two interesting trailers, fear of spoilage in Denis Villenueve’s Blade Runneruniverse, and a horrific dis of Wes Anderson’s new dog movie. Horrific, I tell you. And today’s list, jumping off of our conversation on Star Trek: First Contact, brings us great first contact movies!

THE LIST!: Best alien first contact movies in which the alien race comes to Earth, and does not include indigenous peoples first contact experiences, or experiences in which humans meet new races on other planets, and may or may not be required to happen in Montana.
