My own nominees are:

1. Day the Earth Stood Still
2. War of the worlds
3. Start Trek
4. Star Wars
5. Close Encounters of the 3rd Kind


---

Addendum:

Rationalization?

I'm not a great movie person. I don't keep a lot of movie titles in my head. I rarely watch movies. I  do like Sci Fi but I'm very picky. There's a lot of trash in the genre.

Though I do fondly remember the TV series LOST IN SPACE & MY FAVORITE MARTIAN.

 I don't think I ever did watch that one about the bloke alone on Mars.

I did like the one about the huge artificial enclosed environment above the earth. Elysium?

I enjoyed some of Edgar R Burroughs' 'Mars books.'

And STRANGER IN A STRANGE LAND

And, ENDER'S GAME series

I vaguely recall that there's a bunch of dystopian society movies--a few of which I watched. I find them usually pretty dreary. Not a favorite use of my time.

Anyway--that's about all that's off the top of my head currently.

Yeah, I tend to think that most movies/TV series that touch on these ideas contain misdirections... plausible-sounding ideas that actually point down the wrong path, or direct people away from the "right" path.   :shrug:

Warning From Space. 

Starfish-like aliens disguised as humans travel to Earth to warn of the imminent collision of a rogue planet and Earth. As the planet rapidly accelerates toward Earth, a nuclear device is created at the last minute and destroys the approaching world.

Those Starfish dudes are still hereon earth.

"The most terrifying force of death, comes from the hands of Men who wanted to be left Alone. They try, so very hard, to mind their own business and provide for themselves and those they love. They resist every impulse to fight back, knowing the forced and permanent change of life that will come from it. They know, that the moment they fight back, their lives as they have lived them, are over. -Alexander Solzhenitsyn

If a political party does not have its foundation in the determination to advance a cause that is right and that is moral, then it is not a political party; it is merely a conspiracy to seize power.

Close Encounters of the Third Kind.   The only 'fact' Hollywood changed was the location.  It happened at an Air Force Base...not a desert.

THREE TIMES! 

President Eisenhower met with them, and the result was a signed 'Treaty'.

Will be interesting to eventually see what's accurate & what's disinformation.

LOLOLOL.

THANKS. Though, actually, I wasn't thinking with my best memory when I made that post. At 74, I'm learning that the research on memory & aging is really true. LOL. But I didn't really try very hard on that post, either. Just gave a quick response off the top of my head. Though I doubt I'd have recalled their movie if I HAD of tried harder. LOL.

AND--the OP assigned task was to list 3-5 movies. I did manage that.

I added this onto that post listing the movies I thought of at the time:
