On Dumb Aliens

Related to my post from last week, I couldn’t help but wonder why technologically superior movie aliens sometimes act dumb.

Because of that Tagalog-dubbed movie on TV5, I recalled the following thoughts from Independence Day:

  • If there were shields on all the alien ships, why did they even bother chasing the fighter jets from the humans?
  • They had a very powerful super ray gun on their mother ships.  Why didn’t they just zap everyone to extinction? Did they have to wait that long?

Just thinking…unproductively.
