Best sci-fi of all time for me is either 2001: A Space Odyssey or Terminator 2

The Matrix


The Terminator


Star Wars OT

Alien & Aliens

In order of year released:2001Star WarsClose EncountersEmpire Strikes BackBlade RunnerAliensThe AbyssT212 MonkeysDistrict 9SUNSHINE is up there too, along with STALKER and BRAZIL and THE MATRIX and ROBOCOP and possibly AVATAR. Anyone interested in science fiction should also check out DESTINATION MOON (for a movie that came out 18 years before Apollo 11 and even before Sputnik and Yuri Gagarin, it's pretty damn accurate), FORBIDDEN PLANET, and of course METROPOLIS.

Inception has to be one of them.The Island, I really like.A New Hope, the rest, especially the prequels are laughable to be on lists.Sunshine is really good.I, Robot is another I can watch anytime.Moon is fantastic.Aliens, another.Super 8 is great.Serenity, Knowing, Source Code, Rise of the Apes, Truman Show, 12 Monkeys, Dark City, Star Trek, V for Vendetta, Daybreakers, Avatar etc etc I don't know so many things have sci-fi elements it's hard to really separate and make a list.All I know is I still have to see a couple; Blade Runner, 200, Gattaca etc.
