-Blade Runner
-The Wrath of Khan
-Under the Skin
-Serenity
-The Day the Earth Stood Still
-Terminator 1 & 2

I would put Darko on there, but I consider it more supernatural than Sci-Fi.

Diego TutweillerSame list for me, but throw in A Clockwork Orange and The Empire Strikes Back. Also, take off The World's End. That movie was lame.

Oh yeah, I suppose Clockwork counts. Throw that on mine. I do need to re-watch the Star Wars films sometime, though. And nah, TWE stays.

I would say Blade Runner is my favorite sci fi movie with A Clockwork Orange coming in second place.

Not technically a film, but it was shown in theaters and was feature length, so...



Apart from that, 2001, Inception, Star Wars, Under the Skin, District 9, Donnie Darko, and various Marvel/X-Men films are up there.

Okay, can someone explain to me why there are two Doctor guys in one episode? 

There are actually three.

The same reason that the Avengers was made. More characters interacting with each other = more viewers = financial success.

This list is gonna get a ton of hate, but oh well, it's my onion:
-The Matrix
-District 9
-Inception
-Source Code
-Looper
-Edge of Tomorrow

Inception, Source Code and Looper are the three I truly love. All three are 10/10s (well, not positive on Source Code being a 10, but I think it deserves it).

Knew I could count on you to back me up Tatum . Anyways, you should really check Source Code out, it's a great film.

Death to The Matrix. The rest is agreeable.

The Matrix is probably lowest on this list (maybe District 9), so fair enough. I've also only seen it once, so a rewatch is probably due.
