First we had kids making nice with big bad aliens in 'Super 8,' then we had some buckaroos breaking out their lassoes and wrangling 'em some outer-space invaders in 'Cowboys & Aliens', and here we are with our third movie of the year about extraterrestrials screwing things up for us humans in 'Attack the Block.' It's the least publicized of the three, there's a good chance you haven't even heard of it, and you might have a hard time finding a theater that's playing it even if you do want to check it out.

For a sub-genre that was getting a tad too familiar for its own good as of late, it's nice to get a breath of fresh air from that knows what it's doing and does it well. Go right ahead check our thoughts on the best alien-invasion movie you'll find this weekend.
