I'd consider the first three of these films great and the last three to be good to lesser degrees, but all have an original spin on how aliens and humans interact and/or what we want from each other (I won't go into plot details to avoid spoilers for some). I'm sure I forgot some others, so feel free to add to my list.
I didn't count some great alien flics like
Alien, Predator, Starship Troopers
, etc, because they cast aliens as one-dimensional bad-guys.
, and both of the
franchises would qualify with the criteria that you have cited.
