Today I wanted to see a great sci-fi movie but couldn't decide which one. Because I have seen a lot of them and couldn't make a choice I turned to the IMDB (international movie data base) for some inspiration.

To be honest I was looking forward picking a gem I hadn't seen yet, that would really have made my day. Unfortunately I got stuck and played it save, I wound up watching Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines.

That is what I like, a lot of action, a good story and cool stuff flying in the air. Btw watching Kristanna Loken doing her thing is always a welcome distraction.

I am curious what your favorite sci-fi movie is..maybe I (or others) haven't seen it. Feel free to tell us why it is special to you.

Thx.

Moon is pretty awesome i think.
It is best viewed if you know nothing about it, but is also great for a rewatch.

Off the top of my head, it would be the FireFly series. There is a movie they made after the series got cancelled called Serenity. It's stand-alone enough to watch without the series but, if you ever plan on watching FireFly (WHICH YOU SHOULD BECAUSE IT'S AWESOME), you may want to watch the movie last.

Actually, the pilot episode of FireFly is about feature length so there ya go!

Stanley Kubrick's brilliant 2001: A Space Odyssey! The monoliths are very haunting and the ending leaves you wanting to know more about the nature and purpose of them.

The first monolith plays the role of an extraterrestrial presence purposefully put on earth to introduce the apes into using tools, suggesting that we were given a helping hand or push in the right direction so to speak, the idea alone captivates you from the start, would really recommend if you already haven't.

As a matter of fact I am watching it now... Partly because of an interview the other day with Mary Sean Young. You know,,,the actress who plays Rachael.

In this interview she made it known that she later in life became aware of the occult messages in this film..... I needed to check that stuff out myself.

Toss-up between Alien and Aliens.

Alien is much better horror, but Aliens is sooo quotable it's not even funny.

The classics are my favorites
The war of the worlds and the time machine. The originals not the crappy remakes.
Day the earth stood still, old one again.
When worlds collide.
The thing. Can't go wrong with either the new or old version.
Anything sci if filmed in black and white gets my attention.

Don't get me started. I can quote the whole thing ... kind of like some people can do Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

Why the old ones..? The new ones have the CGI and big budget decors. Maybe it is something nostalgic?

I dont its fair to combine them all into one so i will give my faves in a few types of sci-fi if that's okay? Should take care of the 'why'.


Story: Enders Game
Visuals: Tron legacy
Space: 2001 Space Odyssey
Horror: Event Horizon
Weird: Avatar
Comedy: SPACEBALLS!

How about Source Code?

It was on telly last night, so I watched it for the fourth time.

Yes, it's that good


Other suggestions.....

Primer,
Time Crimes,
Triangle (a bit like time crimes, but not),
The Time Travellers Wife (Ok so it's not heavy sci fi, but it's good),
Enders Game (if you can find it online),
Elysium....Great film, oh one more...
Android Cop!

It's actually a good film, not ripping off Robo Cop much, but has a good twist!

I love any of the movies from the Chronicles of Riddick series. A lot of action, and plenty of space travel. Plus Vin Diesel plays a b@d@ss role for Riddick, IMO. Thanks for the thread though!

This is one of my all time favorite movies.

I would suggest watching it at night with all the lights out for full effect

Many of the greats are mentioned already, but what about "Forbidden Planet?" Dated and somewhat hokey, but a good plot... same with the first "Day the Earth Stood Still." The second with Keanu can cause an aneurism.

"Dark City" is really good, and I liked the Russian "Solaris" though it's admittedly soporific.

There are so many great Sci-Fi books screaming to be made into movies... in a better world... sigh.
