There's this film or miniseries I saw when I was younger, and I can't remember what it is. At first, there was a massive mothership in orbit. The alien leader made a televised announcement and smaller ships came down to Earth at extreme velocities. The alien craft landed, news stopped coming to the human leaders, and the last thing that happened, the aliens located the Earth command and that was it. The film ended with the defeat of the human race. No, it's not Independence Day and it's not Mars Attacks. The aliens had a distinctive type of ship. It was made in the 1990s I think.

You want You Know That Show.
I'm bad, and that's good. I will never be good, and that's not bad. There's no one I'd rather be than me.

Sounds a little like one of the follow-ups they did for the original V. I can't say for sure, though.
probably drunk again
From that somewhat vague description it could be a lot of things. Maybe one of the Alien Nation TV movies, or Earth: Final Conflict. It also reminds me of one short in the mid 80s Twilight Zone called A Small Talent for War

I think it's an indie film. Probably 2000's. A boy in America goes to live with his uncles. They shoot fish. There was this flashback in India and there was a tiger in the movie. Can anyone help me out here?
Gentlemen, as of this moment, I am that second mouse.

[up] That sounds very much like Secondhand Lions. However, there is no tiger in that movie, but rather a lion.

Just awesome like that
This is why we need a more convenient and easier to find link to You Know That Show.
Insert witty and clever quip here.

I've never quite understood why we don't just have a thread pinned in each subforum. It seems... more efficient.

[up][up][up]That's been driving me cravy for ages, thank you so much!

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
