Hollywood's silliest portrayal of an Alien :-)

Post Hollywood's silliest portrayal of an Alien :-)
I think this could be quite a fun thread. I was watching the awesomely bad science fiction 1951 "classic" Flight to Mars

This is the epic story of man's first successful flight to Mars.

The dialogue is so wonderfully dreadful that it elevates the film up to one of my cult favorites

One of the highlights is when the hot 1950's babe scientist astronaut lands on Mars. She meets the aliens who take her to their city
You'll never guess her first question?

"Where's the kitchen? - a woman needs to know that"

Anyway, my delirious enjoyment of this Citizen Kane of Mars movies was further helped by the representation of the aliens

So here's a challenge

I took a screen grab which is below

Can you come up with something sillier than this?

Martians in velour space suits - I kid you not!

The challenge is on!

Armageddon, with it's portrayal of Liv Tyler as the love interest. Vomit vomit.

In all seriousness, Mac from 'MAC and me'.

It made me swear off Mac N' Cheese for a lifetime.

Hope this is what you meant :-) Rob

My friend showed me those one movie, I think it was called Nico or something...and it wasn't the fancy name for Above the Law either.

Anyways, the whole movie was all NIICCCCOOOO and NUUUKKKIIIEEEE with horrible alien effects...trust me, they're kinda bad.

I've got a few favorites. Of course, the Creeping Terror takes the cake. Huge, ungainly, slow-moving carpet remnant.

But the giant brain with the glowing eyes is a close second.
