Pi is a good scifi movie and another really good one is called "Primer" it's about some tech dudes that make a time machine and things get crazy. I had to watch it like three times to see and understand everything. It's def a must watch.

The Signal is a great film, fairly new too having released just last year. About three friends who meet up with a hacker genius only everything isn't as it seems. The ending blew me away.

Battlefield Earth with Travolta was the Ishtaresque of SciFi.

I really liked John Carter, Avatar, War of the Worlds re-make.

Moon was thought provoking, as was Sunshine.

Alien was terrifying but the special effects were ahead of their time.

And then there are...Star Troopers, Dune, and Mission to Mars.

Gravity and Interstellar were visually complex.

Wasn't the movie called "Her"? The little white guy in the game was the best part.

Pandorum and Sunshine are both good. I wouldn't call them Sci-fi so much as "space horror" which is a great genre. I see somebody mentioned Silent Running, I friggin love the effects in that movie. Here's some more, though some of these are more underrated than others:

Moon (2009, Sam Rockwell)
Mission to Mars
Ghost of Mars
Europa Report
Event Horizon

Random other sci-fi and sci-fi/horror:

John Carter (I don't care what anyone says)
Predestination (2014)
Pontypool (2008)
eXistenZ (1999)
Dark City (1998)
In the Mouth of Madness (1994)
Explorers (1985)
They Live (1988)
Triangle (2009)
Coherence (2013)
Primer (2004)
Galaxy Quest (2009)
Attack the Block (2011)
Altered States (1980)
Mimic (1997)
Splice (2009)
Brazil (1985)
War of the Worlds (2005)
The Faculty (1998)
Solarbabies (1986)
Zardoz (1974)

"The Ice Pirates"
An early 80's production, campy but fun

Damn, you beat me to it.
How about "Hell Comes to Frogtown."

I'm down with Moon also. A truly rock solid film on pretty much every level with a fantastic premise and performance by Rockwell.

I just watched The Europa Report and, for a found-footage style film I thought it was pretty great. The CGI budget obviously runs a little bit over a few times, but for a quasi-realistic take on a manned mission to that creepy little snowball, I think it did a great job.

The Thirteenth Floor

Computer scientist Hannon Fuller has discovered something extremely important. He's about to tell the discovery to his colleague, Douglas Hall, but knowing someone is after him, the old man leaves a letter in the computer generated parallel world his company has created (which looks like the 30's with seemingly real people with real emotions). Fuller is murdered in our real world the same night, and his colleague is suspected. Douglas discovers a bloody shirt in his bathroom and he cannot recall what he was doing the night Fuller was murdered. He logs into the system in order to find the letter, but has to confront the unexpected. The truth is harsher than he could ever imagine...

Came out around the time of the Matrix.

Totally forgot about that film and i only just watched it again a few month back, very similar to the matrix and of course the twist. Great choice

The fountain, best-movie-ever-made.
Also Moon.

Damn it ...Moon....I kept trying to think of one to sneak in here people wouldn't know about...Moon is so freaking good.

All been a while but back now.
I love all film genres but sci-fi fantasy have been my favorites since childhood. From family members making up stories to silence my questions of "whats that" or "why" to short stories about things going bump in the night.

Have to agree with Sunshine cracking film for all the reasons good films are called so. Solid script, great cast and just enough elements of true let our minds fill in the gaps and push on.
If I may suggest some film I feel did not get the appreciation they deserved.

In no particular order.

Hell comes to Frogtown
Roller Ball original
Dark city
Event Horizon
The Riddick series
Jackboots on Whitehall
Time Bandits
District 9.....

This list really could go on and on and I think I am going to have a full schedule to watch.
Have a nice weekend folks
