I'll vote for Contact, even if it's not in the poll. It's a very varm movie with many aspects. And it's the most realistic sci-fi I've seen. 
Currently listening to:
- Andromeda
- Pagan's Mind
- Kamelot

Another excellent SF-movie is Douglas Trumbull's "Silent Running" from 1971, featuring Bruce Dern and 3 robots that were loveable long before R2D2 and C3PO.

Blade Runner. And what about Alien and Aliens?

Anyone seen Westworld with Yul Brynner?  Not sure how much you would class it as sci-fi, but I've always liked the film.  Essentially Michael Crichton just re-wrote the story and called it Jurassic Park.

"Westworld" actually was written and directed by Michael Crichton already! So he just copied himself.

Of the ones there, I picked Star Wars (even though it's technically fantasy, not sci-fi). Other favorites of mine include Plan 9 from Outer Space, Metropolis, and Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

Precisely.  I think I prefer Westworld to Jurassic Park.  The initial impact of seeing the dino's is great, but it soon wears off.  but I like the strange atmosphere to westworld.  it is very 70s looking, but you do actually feel like your there with them - especially when you watch it late at night when your senses are dulled somewhat.

blade runner

star wars is my favourite film but it is not sci fi, there is no 'sci' only fiction,

and 'planets of the apes'.(the original one)

and matrix and dark city

Clockwork Orange is incredible. It's a better overall movie and my preference for sci fi.

I'll see you on the Darkside of the moon...
