Top 5 sci-fi movies





HamsterMan
I'm bored so I thought I would check out some new movies.

Here's my favorites.

1. The Alien/s movies, obviously
2. The thing
3. Event Horizon
4. The Abyss
5. The Cube movies
Idoru
Without internal order, here are five good ones:

* Stargate (Movie, Series, Spinn-off-series, spinn-off-movie... need I say more?)
* Blade Runner (though the book's better...)
* 12 Monkeys (Gilliam, makes you think twice)
* Starship troopers (Death from above!!! Laughing )
* Tank Girl (It's funny)

Since you did not ask for top 5 favorites or top-grossing, I would tend to pick those films which most closely adhered to the spirit of classic science fiction a la Asimov, Clarke, Bradbury, ...
  1. 2001: A Space Odyssey (Stanley Kubrick, 1968)
  2. Metropolis (Fritz Lang, 1927)
  3. Solaris (Andrei Tarkovsky, 1972)
  4. Fahrenheit 451 (François Truffaut, 1966)
  5. The Day the Earth Stood Still (Robert Wise, 1951)

... but the list of runner-ups is endless ... (alphabetically:)
  • Back to the Future 1 to 3 (various)
  • Brazil (Terry Gilliam, 1985)
  • Blade Runner (Ridley Scott, 1982)
  • Clockwork Orange (Stanley Kubrick, 1971)
  • Close Encounters of the Third Kind (Steven Spielberg, 1977)
  • Contact (Robert Zemeckis, 1997)
  • E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (Steven Spielberg, 1982)
  • The Incredible Shrinking Man (Jack Arnold, 1957)
  • Jurassic Park (Steven Spielberg, 1993)
  • The Matrix (Andy and Larry Wachowsk, 1999)
  • Planet of the Apes (Franklin J. Schaffner, 1968)
  • Rollerball (Norman Jewison, 1975)
  • Stalker (Andrei Tarkovsky, 1979)
  • Star Wars 1 to 6 (various)
  • Terminator 1 + 2 (various)
  • The Thing from Another World (Howard Hawks/Christian Nyby, 1951)
  • Tron (1982)
  • Westworld (Michael Crichton, 1973)
  • ...

Good special effects are nice to have, but have little to do with science fiction.

1. The Fifth Element
2. Spaceballs (a comedy, but somewhat scifi)
3. Deep Impact
4. Tron
5. Star Wars: Attack of the clones
j_f_k

1) back to the future
2) 2001
3) contact (although - they did almost spoil the film it was a really rocking book)
4) star wars
5) star trek movies

Narrowing down at the Sci Fi movies to a top five? That's tough... they're all so different! But mine would have to be:

1.) The Matrix
2.) The Fifth Element
3.) Star Wars
4.) Star Trek: First Contact
5.) The Day the Earth Stood Still
slashnburn99

Seriously? I loved episode 1!

Now I enjoy (its not really a movie), but Stargate Atlantis is really cool. For those who didn't see it yet, watch the first episode and see if you like it. Also watch Stargate SG1 ofcourse!

Ofcourse I also like all the star wars episodes, those are classic. I found Event Horizon very scary though Sad
abecedarian
-Terminator 1 & 2, the third one ended with a bit of a WTF? element. It ruined the whole storyline, and barely made sense.

-Alien Vs Predator 2 - Requiem. The second one was much better than the first in terms of graphical effects and surprise factors.

-Transformers. Instant Pwnage. How they managed to do all those effects in every second of the movie was just simply amazing. The story was short, but, it was a great improvement to all those cliche cartoon episodes. Yeah, I did use to watch them. Don't ask why.

I don't think The Lord of the Rings or Pirates of the Caribbean are science fiction movies. Those are more like fantasy movies.

Well Star Wars has to be up there, so rather than name them all in the list, I'll name them as a series. Here are my probable 5, but there are many more that could be included.

Star Wars (Empire Strikes Back being my favourite)
Matrix (1st film mainly)
Back To The Future
Independence Day
Terminator (1 & 2)
