Hmm cant really think of any atm, but here’s a few of the top of my head…
The man who fell to earth
Any star trek stuff with the borg in.
Any jet li film in the Chinese language.
Anything with Russian peasants suffering.
Trouble with films is that to be good they often need big budgets [not always of course], and hence a contemporary theme. Currently its all about stripping the earth of resources or using humans as batteries [matrix] instead of say tidal/wave/wind energy.
Humanity will need to address these issues shortly, hence super advanced aliens most likely will have already found ways around the problems. Equally I doubt if their mission would be to colonise by destroying humanity or colonise at all, they would be more advanced than us.
Man Bites Dog cost £1000.
Belgian film, disturbing and dare I say it amusing? But a good insight into the psychopath.
You're right though low budget generally means low quality.
