The review of this Movie prepared by Brandon Swenson

A scienced based movie that involves the discovery of an alien lifeform by a professor and his buddy, a geologist. They discover that the organism is evolving. As it evolves they battle the governments decision to use napalm and the ironic usage of head & shoulders to kill the alien once and for all. A comedy cum science fiction, this movie is worth the watch!

When a meteor hits the earth two scientists go to check it out and find rapidily evolving aliens. The two scientists are joined by a trainee firefighter and they go about beating up some aliens and infiltrating the government site set up where the meteor hit with some hilarious consequences.
The review of this Movie prepared by Rach.C

Excellent and realistic Sci-Fi movie about a meteor crashing with life forms aborad. Aliens evolve so quickly that they covered over 6 trillion years of our evolution in about one month. It also has a very comedic side love story about two people who start out seeming like they are total oppisites, but then start to like each other.

When a meteor crashes in the Arizona desert, it unleases a whole new ecology that threatens to overtake everything on Earth. The government thinks they have the situation under control, but it's up to a couple community college professors to save the world. Some amazing special effects dominate this movie.

David Duchovny is a professor who works with Orlando Jones. They hear of a meteor crash and go to investigate. When they take a sample, it starts to evolve at a startling rate. Pretty soon, the government takes over and the aliens evolve into larger, scarier things.
The review of this Movie prepared by Michael Gookin

When a meteor hits the earth strange things begin to form beneath the vast caves in Arizona where two community college professors explore into what seems to be an alien colony forming and evolving into the earth's atmosphere. The film has some funny moments but looks too much like 'Ghostbusters' in formula but doesn't have the same fun or good writing.
