Top Sci-fi Movie

Ok, I’ll take the bait. BBC reported that readers of SFX magazine had voted Serenity as best sci-fi movie. Eh? Bloody fanboy’s. It’s good but not that good. So if it was me choosing the top ten it would be, in particular order…

  1. Blade Runner
  2. The Empire Strikes Back
  3. The Matrix
  4. Star Wars
  5. Terminator
  6. Aliens
  7. 2001: A Space Odyssey
  8. Serenity
  9. Back to the Future
  10. Starship Troopers

Anyone like to add one I’ve missed or should have considered?

    Star Wars > Empire
    Alien > Aliens
    Brazil > most of them

    I also don’t see Judge Dredd or Doom on that list though?!

    How could I forget Galaxy Quest!

    I prefer Empire, Aliens/Alien is a close one, didn’t like Brazil. Judge Dredd and Doom sucked ass. Galaxy Quest was funny though.

    I’m now thinking Gattaca should have made my list. Hey ho.

    I’ll put a shout in for “Forbidden Planet” – its just the 51 years old and packed full of great sci-fi elements, monsters from the id, neon laser effects and a robot that made booze!

    I know it got panned at the time but I also enjoyed the remake of “War of the Worlds”. That noise the machines made before they attacked rocked my world. Oh yeah.

    Finally, I can’t forget watching “The Thing” late one night with my Dad when I was a wee kid. The effects were again awsome for its day, but it also had the deeper psychological element – and great music too. Message to John Carpenter – you haven’t made a decent movie in 25 years – pull your finger out you lazy b*stard!!!!

    I almost added War of the Worlds as I enjoyed it too. I don’t know why…I hated Forbidden Planet.
