Occupation: Rainfall (2020)

The sequel to 2018’s Occupation, this movie takes placed two years after an intergalactic invasion of earth. A ragtag group of survivors in Australia are trapped in a desperate ground war despite the help of several aliens sympathetic to their cause and engaging in a pitched battle to keep our planet from being the new home of our alien invaders.

While this doesn’t have the budget of a summer blockbuster, the effects certainly feel like they belong there. I had a blast watching all of the spaceship battles in this. As for the story surrounding it, well…imagine my surprise when Ken Jeong, of all people, showed up as an American agent that has become fast friends with an alien pothead named Steve.

That said, there’s a dependable cast, including the man who was Jango Fett, Temuera Morrison, as well as Lawrence Makoare from the Lord of the Rings movies (he was the Uruk-hai leader Lurtz, the Witch-king of Angmar and the Orc leaders Gothmog and Bolg) and Jason Isaacs (Lucius Malfoy from the Harry Potter film series) as the aforementioned pothead from another planet.
