Star Wars movies are not Sci Fi ... neither is Jurassic Park.

I voted for the Forbidden Planet ... Leslie Nielsen rules ... and the robot, too!

2001 is leagues ahead of the others, but Close Encounters is a fabulous movie.

None of the above. "Phase IV" from 1974, directed by Saul Bass. The movie could have been even better, but he had to cut out a lot of the end; the company required it. I would have liked to see the originally planned ending.

hmmm... sounds interesting but I've never heard of it... Is it an english film, is it fairly obscure or is it easy to find?

I LOVE the matrix but...I really want to see Clockwork Orange. Heard a helluvalot of good things about it. Also- The Matrix thing is kinda overdone now...not that it's ever going to kill my love of black-leather trench-coats!

Of these A Clockwork Orange (is it strictly sci-fi, though?) ... my favourite is a rare one ... Babylon 5: In The Beginning ...
"Death to Utopia! Death to faith! Death to love! Death to hope?" thunders the 20th century. "Surrender, you pathetic dreamer.”

  • The Lathe of Heaven (1979)
  • Gattaca (1997)
  • Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country (yr. ?) not as good as the other two
  • Logan's Run (197_)
  • 2001 (1968)

gattaca really is a piece of Art.  Beautiful movie.  Love it.

Lathe of Heaven is still my favorite though, great book/novella by U.K. Leguin, PBS did a wonderful job on a $300,000 budget.

are two of my favorites

.....Star Wars, bah, more fairy tale than science fiction.

I chose Bladerunner but 2001 was more thoughtful!

Not sure I would classify Clockwork and Jurrassic as Sci-fi. though.

How about old "Classics" such as Plan 9 From Outer Space or Mars Needs Women.... real tacky but funny !

Plan 9 From Outer Space - rubbish acting, rubbish sets, rubbish story, rubbish direction!  Still, a cult classic and a lot of fun to watch. 

...it's also a bazillion times better than Star Wars Episode 2!  Give me Ed Wood any day over George Lucas.

What, no Tarkovski's "Solaris" or "Stalker" on the list?  Well, I'll go for "Blade Runner" then.

we saw it on tv twice. it is a movie about intelligent ants. 2 scientists set out to study their behavior, but it soon turns out the ants study the scientists just as well

Nice picks Eetu.You see 'Mirror'?

I also like Bladerunner and Pitch Black is pretty tense.
