Alien invaders get more than they bargained for in this London-set kids-vs-aliens super-fun, old-school creature feature. Overlooked at the time of its release, Joe Cornish’s feature debut is a rip-roaring good time that deserves modern classic status. The cast of (then) unknown kids includes the film debut of John Boyega who stars as Finn in the new Star Wars films. Also starring Nick Frost as the tower block’s resident drug dealer and Jodie Whittaker who, as announced this summer, will be the first woman to play The Doctor in the Doctor Who film series. Rated R.
