Not a movie review

What is it with alien invasion movies and their stunning lack of originality?

Last year we had Skyline: aliens invade Los Angeles. Stuff blows up. A ragged group of civilians attempt to flee the city. Everybody dies.

This year we have Battle: Los Angeles: aliens invade Los Angeles. Stuff blows up. A ragged group of marines attempt to flee the city. Nearly everybody dies.

As far as I can tell, the only difference between the two other than cast and budget, is that at least the script of Skyline was comprehensible. Battle: Los Angeles is so crammed with military jargon that to an old conchie like me it may as well be in Klingon. Except I might have a shot at understanding the Klingon.
