Sometimes the alien is friendly, like the bug-eyed cutie E.T. Other times it hunts man for sport and won't relent until everyone in its path is reduced to a puddle of blood, like the Predator. In either case, they are beloved for being the stars of the show in our favorite alien movies. While flicks like these are seen by many to be near-perfect, the truth is they have their fair share of little mistakes, which fans online have been quick to spot. In Predator, for example, Mac clearly gets a hole blasted through his head, but when his body is found his head is totally intact. If you watch closely in the background of Men In Black, you'll notice that K doesn't actually touch the keys while "typing" on a keyboard. And across the board, whether it's Alien or Stargate, you're sure to find plenty of puppet strings helping the aliens and futuristic tech stay mobile.

Check out this list of small mistakes fans spotted in alien movies, and don't forget to vote up your favorites!

    Zed And K Pantomime Typing In 'Men In Black'

    From Redditor u/Ender_Guardian:

    In Men in Black, when Will Smith is looking at the two space ships at the MIB headquarters, if you look in the background Z and K are there typing on the computer. But if you look closer you can tell that they're not even touching the keyboard.

    The Kids Ask For Toppings After They Order A Pizza In 'E.T.'

    From Redditor u/allfredllyod:

    In E.T the Extra-Terrestrial, the kids order a pizza on the phone, but when they ask Elliot to go get the pizza from the delivery guy they tell him “with plenty of sausage and pepperonis, everything but the little fishies!” They’re telling Elliot what they want on the pizza they already ordered.
