Top 10 Sci-Fi Movies

The American Film Institute recently released a list of the Top Ten Science Fiction Movies of all time. Along with their list are some quick videos about the films from film stars such as James Earl Jones and Michael J. Fox. Here’s their list:

  1. 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY
  2. STAR WARS: EPISODE IV – A NEW HOPE
  3. E.T. – THE EXTRA TERRESTRIAL
  4. A CLOCKWORK ORANGE
  5. THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL
  6. BLADE RUNNER
  7. ALIEN
  8. TERMINATOR 2: JUDGMENT DAY
  9. INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS
  10. BACK TO THE FUTURE

So, what do you think of their list? What would you have added? Personally, I would have at least had The Matrix in the top five (the sequels never happened..seriously).

Also, the list is a little on the dystopian side, don’t you think. I guess it’s not that hard to imagine a dark future.

  1. It must have been very hard to compare sci-fis as such. The Terminator series are completely different from the sweetness and delicacy of E.T. and the BTF series for example.
    The Matrix series (yes it is a series, although I think I know what you are referring to) is displayed in a technical environment, while the BTF series is in a modern world of today.
    You might also want to post on why do you dislike Matrix II and III.

    Lists like this definitely rasies the Q of what sci-fi is. What it is all about?

    Do dystopian films with no aliens count as sci-fi for example?

  2. Er, excuse me, where is Flash Gordon?! Close Encounters of the Third Kind? Logan’s Run?? I think I may have to post Helen’s list of top Science Fiction films. I agree with you about Matrix. I loved the first film but the second two films lost me.
