Metropolis – 1927 Silent, German Expressionism

Blade Runner – 1982 American sci-fi action thriller film, directed by Ridley Scott based on the book Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick.

Deckard: [narrating in Blade Runner] I don't know why he saved my life. Maybe in those last moments he loved life more than he ever had before. Not just his life - anybody's life; my life. All he'd wanted were the same answers the rest of us want. Where did I come from? Where am I going? How long have I got? All I could do was sit there and watch him die.

Brazil – 1985 English – directed and written by Terry Gilliam. The tone of this movie is surreal.

The only good ones I can think of are Metropolis (Not that entertaining but interesting from a film students POV) The Matrix, and Alien.... not a big fan of Sci Fi.... The Fly is pretty good too actually

I forgot about 1985 version of the Fly with Jeff Goldblum. Excellent

Star Wars would be considered Sci-Fi, no? I nominate the last three (original 3) films of that series, giving Empire Strikes Back the edge over the other two.

Otherwise, I'm partial to Donnie Darko, and for the third, Grindhouse.

I've been a SciFi fan for a long time. I even took a class in HS on it.
I liked the first The Fly from 1958. Goldblum's wasn't bad, just a bit more gross.
Alien series, The first Matrix, Them, I could go on and on.

Wait, no one has mentioned Kubrick or Tarkovsky yet??
Hmm, I will then.

Fave ones:
1. 2001: A space odyssey (by Stanley Kubrick)
2. Solyaris (by Andrei Tarkovsky)
3. Moon (by Duncan Jones, son of David Bowie)

There's many more but the first 2 are indisputable classics and the 3rd one is a new scifi from last year with an excellent performance by Sam Rockwell.
Of course none of these movies is fast paced or packed with action but rather slow, beautiful and thought provoking scifi movies.

Insert typical super smart ass comment courtesy of thepainter here.

This is hard because I already love the ones that have already been listed, oldies and newbies. Shame it is only 3 because I would of have added movies such as transformers and Hitchhikers guide to the Galaxy (yes i'm cheatingevil4 ). So here is my top 3

1. District 9

2. X-MEN series

3. Star Trek (2009) Never watched star trek prior to this movie.

1. Alien - The original and the best with creature designed and built by HR Giger.

2. The Man Who Fell to Earth - such as sad film, starring Bavid Bowie.

3. 2001 - Still a mystical experience watching this film even after all these years.

Star Wars, I like all of them. Screw all the haters.

Dune- Interesting Film, not as good as the book (but then films generally aren't).

Stargate- started off the longest running Sci-Fi series ever. Very underated film

Okay, I screwed up, these aren't SF, I guess. I was thinking scariest, regardless if it's SF or just scary. Sorry, now I'll just sulk off.... but I'll leave them anyway.


The Wizard of Oz. (Seriously, the scariest move of all time. Man why did they mess with a little kid's head like that, making her think her doggie would be taken away? Sheesh!!!!)

Cat People.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cat_People_%281942_film%29

The Exorcist. Just typing the name makes me wonder if I'll be able to sleep tonight. Holy crap, why did they mess with a little kid's head like that!

imho ....

1. Bladerunner (ah, Harrison Ford .... and a flipping Darryl Hannah - loved the eyeballs in the beaker!)
2. Minority Report (surprise - Tom Cruise did it well - for a change)
3. V for Vendetta (don't know why exactly - but it just did it for me!)

of course, on the list is the Matrix and the Watchmen.

You got a thing for eyeballs, don'tcha Van? thatshot


Incidentally...The Forbin Project was a killer 1960's flick - rare indeed.

If ya can't beat 'em... pay someone to do it for you.

I have been a sci fi reader and fan since the mid 50's so I have a lot of favourites but the thought provoking ones that have not yet been mentioned I can think of are , The Day The Earth Stood Still, Silent Running and Enemy Mine.
