I'm pretty stunned that 2001: A Space Odyssey isn't #1. It has only one single scientific flaw in the entire film: when Dr. Floyd is in transit to the Moon, he takes a drink of something through a straw. If you look closely you can see the water descends down the straw after he is done drinking. In zero G that would not have happened, but because it was filmed on earth in one gravity, that could not be helped (I think they didn't even notice it until later, actually). Otherwise, all of the science is completely accurate.
Gattaca is also a very good choice for #1. It really gets the science right, though it's a bit hard to believe that Ethan Hawke's character could really avoid keeping every single cell of skin or hair off his keyboard and workspace to avoid detection. But otherwise, the science is very believable.
For the record, Blade Runner is my favorite sci-fi film of all time, and probably my favorite film (though 2001 is pretty close, too).edit on 3/1/2011 by LifeInDeath because: (no reason given)
