'Signs'

<b>The plan:</b> The first sign that something is amiss comes when crop circles and intricate patterns appear in fields all over the world. These are landing coordinates, instructions, or possibly "Eat at Joe's"-type ads for the alien hordes. Then there are strange rustlings, glimpsed figures, and prickly intimations of menace. then come the spaceships bearing the alien hordes -- little green men intent on colonizing the earth. Why? Who knows -- we can't read the signs.<br>
<br>
<b>Did it work?</b> No. These ETs managed to overlook one salient fact: Their fatal weakness is H2O, and they were attempting to take over a planet that has water over 70 percent of its surface. Once they dipped their toe in -- and saw it dissolved -- they fled. But hey, they gave <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="PECLB001922" title="Mel Gibson" href="/topic/entertainment/movies/mel-gibson-PECLB001922.topic">Mel Gibson</a> his faith back, so that makes it worthwhile, right?
