"I'm mad silky, yo!"


« on: December 29, 2008, 03:57:38 PM »

Ok, I've got another childhood movie that I can't seem find on the net anywhere.

I don't remember much at all about the plot.  I remember there were some sort of large hostile aliens, that (I think) preferred being in tunnels or underground.  The biggest hint I can think of was the aliens had some type of energy weapon built into their arm, and it was fueled by copper... I believe.  I just remember there was a kid at one point that discovered you could load the alien weapons with a penny.  I seem to recall the aliens using long "bricks" of copper usually to fuel the weapons.

Also there was some kind of helpful alien that looked sorta like a ninja.  In all black.  Don't remember if he had weapons or anything... at least I think he was in this movie, hope I'm not confusing it with something else. 

Thanks for any info  Twirling

Alien penny gun is surely Tobe Hopper's Invaders from Mars remake.

Ah yes, this is it, found a few clips/trailers on YouTube.  Thanks  Cheers

I was totally off with the ninja-looking alien.  Any clue where he may have been from?  I seem to recall him having glowing eyes, all black, and at some point he gets wounded in the movie.  I think he was part of an alien group, but all of his aliens friends had different looks.  They were friendly with people, and if I remember right, they were helping humans with an evil alien race.  I'm pretty sure this was a late 80's / early 90's movie.  Least that's when I saw it.

The alien ninja one sounds interesting.  The action took place on Earth?

Yup, took place on Earth.  The time frame was period (seem to remember black/white police cars, regular clothing on the humans).  Think there was a scene when the ninja-alien (I don't recall him actually using martial arts or anything, he just kinda looked like one) being injured and brought into a house.  And I don't think he was wearing clothing to give the ninja image, kinda looked like it was his regular skin.  Could be wrong.

EDIT:  Heh, this alien from your link looks a LOT like Krang from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fame.

Your movie about the alien "ninja" could be I Come in Peace.  It's about two aliens, both really tall.  One is blonde and harvesting dope from people's brains.  The other is dark haired and is a cop tracking the dope dealer down.  He gets injured, tells the human good guys what's going on, and gives them a weapon.  His eyes didn't glow, but they were very bright white with yellow (or light blue) irises, could have been mistaken for glowing compared to his dark hair and costume.
