Favorite Sci-Fi Films

By gralfus ·
Most of these are the old ones that the Sci-Fi channel won't show (in favor of their own tripe like "Python", "Anaconda", "Python vs Anaconda", etc.), but many of us grew up with. I'm sure there are some I've overlooked.

Most of these are available on Amazon.

War of the Worlds
This Island Earth
The Thing
Earth Vs. the Flying Saucers
The Crawling Eye
The Day the Earth Stood Still
Forbidden Planet
Invasion of the Body Snatchers (original)
Quartermass and the Pit (aka "Five Million Years to Earth")
The Day the Earth Caught Fire
The Blob
Fiend Without a Face
The Monolith Monsters
Island of Terror
The Brain from Planet Arous
The Power (hard to find this George Hamilton flick from 196

The Terminator (1 & 2, 3 was a joke)
The Matrix (only the first)

I saw one years ago called "The Flesh Eaters", which was a B&W about a nazi scientist who develops sparkly little creatures that live in water and consume all flesh. Can't seem to locate it anywhere.

No particular order
Star Wars even the new ones but the originals were the best.
Terminator/T2
Total Recall
Evil Dead II/Army of Darkness
The Last Starfighter (cheesy I know but still was fun)
Aliens (the perfect blend of action, great one liners, and scary moments, the other movies never cam close)
The Cube (not sure this is actual scifi but a great movie of survival, a must see)
Primer (imagine how much better it could have been with a budget a must see)
Any Godzilla movie from the 70-80's they rocked!!!
They Live
Invasion of the Body snatchers
Communion (this was where I became a fan of Christopher Walken)
Starship Troopers (the first one only, mad funny)
Original Robocop
Time Cop (you have to admit it was a great idea)
Predator
XMEN/X2/Spiderman and II/Batman
Blade/II
Highlander (great idea and the tv series did a great job, too bad the follow up movie blew)
Battle Beyond the Stars (Johnboy from the Waltons, George Peppard as "Space Cowboy") man it was a silly movie but I watched it all the time.
Cocoon (interesting idea wasnt great but entertaining and poked the question of tolerance)
Close Encounters
Starman
Jurassic Park (it made the right dinosaur movie too bad they couldnt continue the quality)
Star Trek II The Wrath of Khan (Star Trek finally got one right, great villian great story, great action, great character development. The only other Trek movie that comes close was Generations and First Contact, they were good)
The Matrix, (and even the follow ups werent too bad but not great.)
Pitch Black
Logan's Run
The Abyss
Escape from New York
Dune
Enemy Mine (hatred vs. survival)
Deep Impact (the correct Armageddon)
Alien Nation (great paralell of racism)
Scanners
Death Race 2000 (stallone and Carridan this was a joke of a movie that will have you rolling)
Mars Attacks (if you dont find this funny your dead)
Superman (best represntation of a comic hero fantastic casting)
Existenz (very trippy)
All Mad Max
there are so many more I'm just drawing a blank right now, I am ashamed.

What he said...

by Jay Garmon Contributor In reply to ahem...

I'd agree with pretty much everything on the jkaras list, but also throw in The Fifth Element, for reasons I can't quite explain, and maybe Minority Report.
