Like any "Top Ten" or similar list it is the opinion of the writer. I am surprised that a movie like 2001 wouldn't make this list but oh well.

OK let's find out who used TAXPAYER TIME to compile this USELESS movie critique instead of furthering the CAUSE of EXPLORING SPACE.

Then let's fire them and replace them with SERIOUS SCIENTISTS.

I would be terrified if

THE THING

was at number one. I'm slightly reassured now.

so using this list some basic conclusions can be drawn...

*genetic engineering is quite possible and probably in use.

*aliens are monitoring us, and can erase us from the equation if we become a big enough threat to earth

* NASA and govt agencies are in secret contact with extraterrestrials.

*Theres two main classes of people, the elite, and the commoners.

*Possibly a crashed spaceship somewhere in the arctic...

*Something of great value on the moon or another planet.

clearly these could be more in depth, while some of these are fact.

they need to make a list of the Least Possible Sci-Fi Films

So "Jurassic Park" is more realistic than "Close Encounters of the Third Kind"??

This is just more dis-info from NASA.....

They clearly dont need to go into space anymore because they already have what they are looking for...
the whole point of the space program was exploration. you dont stop unless you find what it is you started looking for.
just my opinion.

Exactly, if they really do work for nasa there pay must be massive, lol.

Do not want to upset obama now do you, oh no he already knows nasa is a sham, and i think he knows there is a secret space program.

I find it kind of funny myself because it would seem to me the most realistic sci-fi movies are the ones I would consider the more unrealistic.

To me the most believable sci-fi movies out there would probably be

1. Deep Impact
2. IRobot
3. The Stand
4. Close Encounters
5. Space Cowboys
6. The Andromeda Strain
7. Jurassic Park

To me I can see those being much more realistic then any of the ones on the lists. Not sure but seems like some BS way to make people laugh and feel associated with NASA.

I fully agree with your movies slayer (I used to rock a similar game handle - player1 is so easy to change ^_^), however regardless of what they list, picking ten movies out of thousands is going to cause some grief to people. I say make whatever movie you want the most realistic as long as you can justify it. Blade runner is probably possible with current mainstream technology, as is 2001. Hell, total recall with its see through xray scanners at airports like USA and tv screens in trains like europe - this blew my mind at how far we've milked our still primitive ways.

edit to add:
district9 (which seemed to get a bit more flack than usual) springs to mind for its raw realisticness above all scifi films at the moment. I guess many films are realistic if you've done ya scalar em research!

This list has me fascinated.
I wonder what the sheeple will think of this


The Thing From Another World
Scientists and American Air Force officials fend off a blood-thirsty alien organism while at a remote arctic outpost.

Metropolis
In a futuristic city sharply divided between the working class and the city planners, the son of the city's mastermind falls in love with a working class prophet who predicts the coming of a savoir to mediate their differences.

The Day the Earth Stood Still
An alien lands and tells the people of Earth that they must live peacefully or be destroyed as a danger to other planets.

I actually laughed when i came across this headline. Since when did NASA start rating and reviewing movies? What a joke.

The difference between movie science and real science...is actually nothing.
At least, that is how I see it....both come from the imagination of man. One is just
more acceptable socially than the other. I do know the difference between reality and fantasy
and many times the fantasy of films becomes the reality of science in time.

I noticed that any films that dealt with "governments" that tore up a society were passed.
Also noticed that apparently the groups polled to make up this list were quite possibly below the ages of 35.

My choices would have replaced a few of theirs with:

1. Solyent Green (Charlton Heston) 1973
2. Bicentennial Man (Robin Williams) 1999
3. Children of Men (Clive Owen) 2000
4. Fahrenheit 451 (Oscar Werner) 1966

Could name more, but hope the theme gets through with these four.

Oh i think you could be right about that.
I wonder who would take care of such a problem, maybe that huge laser thing they have out there whacking UFO's with.

I think some people from the Stargates Are Real thread will be a little dissapointed.

They've run out of money to do anything legitimate for the agency.

How 2001: A Space Odyssey got left out beats me.

There goes the agency!

Yes, because it is clearly evident that a massive chunk of their annual budget went into compiling this list


Lighten up, it's a harmless fluff piece
