Hey! Voltron here talking about the best alien buddy movie ever made. That's right, ALIEN NATION. It's the story of a future
where an alien slave ship crash lands in the mohove Desert. The Aliens called Newcomers have adjusted to life in Los Angeles.
But Matt Sikes don't like them. But as much as he hates the Newcomers for murdering his partner, he is forced to work with
one in order to stop the crime boss who hired the men that did it. But William has bigger plans then armed robbery and had
nothing to do with the stick up, but he has a bigger plan involving a Newcomer narcotic the Overseers used on the ship.
This is a great buddy picture, it has all the elements of a cop buddy picture and it has a moral about tolarence with
beating you over the head with it. That's the way to do it, get your message out but get off the damn soap box. Other movies
can learn a lesson from ALIEN NATION. If you are too young to remember it, then go see it. If you are old enough, then go
see it again.
