Now that I think of it, Star Trek: First Contact would be the only film in the canon to qualify. Cool movie.

Forgot about Enemy Mine. Not really that original from a sci-fi POV, more of a creative 'bromance'. Still, it was better than most alien films.

Also just remembered Starman, with Jeff Bridges. A bit cheesy, but an intelligent attempt at the human/alien genre.
Cocoon perhaps?
