    Hmm, our planet is 70% water...is it in the aliens' best interest to invade? :p

    It said that they weren't invading. The aliens were just collecting people as slaves. Or something like that. Guess they felt stupid for not voting to go to the lake.

    I believe they mentioned in the movie the aliens grabbed a bunch of people and then left. Why? Same reason the Death Star didn't come out on the other side of Yavin IV...doesn't matter.
    As for Ed's opinion of the movie, that's what it is. We all have our own opinions. I happened to like AI, most people thought it sucked. Granted, without Chris Rock's voice the movie would have been A LOT better. But over all I liked it.
    We've seen big screen alien invasions done to death. What you never see is how it affects a small group of people in a real world way. (ie: Not ID4) I thought it was great the way the characters were "isolated" and you're forced to see the events through them.
    And any movie I see in the theatre that makes people jump/scream out loud is good in my book! :D

    Vong_Killer - Well I'd explain the wife flash-backs as his way of reacting to a stressful situation if they had gone with my ending.

    Accually, if I had had a hand in making the movie, I probably would have talked about the wife's death, but not have the flash-backs with my ending in place.

    Take out the flash back ending scene!? That scene MADE the movie. It WAS the movie. That's like saying "lets take Vader out of SW." It would be an entirly different movie, w/ a way different message.

    The flash backs did kind of help explain some of the movie plot.

    Just thinking about that movie still gives me the creeps. There is no way I am ever watching Signs again.
