One gem I can't find anywhere is a movie with Tom Selleck and in it there was a gun that had bullets which would chase you until they hit you.

Runaway

" In the near future, a police officer specializes in malfunctioning robots. When a robot turns out to have been programmed to kill, he begins to uncover a homicidal plot to create killer robots... and his son becomes a target. Director: Michael Crichton Writer: Michael Crichton Stars: Tom Selleck, Cynthia Rhodes, Gene Simmons "

Blade Runner , great story , great cast ...great film



I have to agree, Blade Runner is number 1

Followed closely by 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Both these movies involve the effects work of genius (inventor of IMAX) Douglas Trumbell.

I have to mention my 3rd place Sci-Fi favourite: They Live. Funny how everything went wrong for Carpenter as a filmmaker after this - the most anti-establishment movie of all time - not that i'm suggesting a conspiracy

wow, i'm surprised nobody ever mentioned Dune, based on a book by Frank Herbert..
Dune Messiah and Children of Dune were pretty good adaptations too.
maybe they're not as popular to be in the top 3 list, but i can certainly include them in my top 10.

any movie adaptation of Isaac Asimov's or Philip Dick's sci-fi is really good too.

i prefer to watch sci-fi movies based on books.. american sci-fi authors are really amazing, the best in their genre.

Yeah, I know...when you get started there are many sci-fi movies sharing first place. Some ATS-members say.."why did nobody mention...this one". I guess this thread needed to grow a little longer before that one was mentioned...

We live in a great time for sci-fi movies. A special effects worker said in an interview that with the computer technology of today any fantasy is possible to create on the screen. I remember one director say he did hold on a filmstory to be made until the technology was there to make it happen on the screen. I guess that time has arrived..I forgot what film he was talking about.

That is a strange thought if you think of it... If anything is possible and CGI is not to be distinguished from real what can be new? What special effect can surprise the audiance, if you understand what I am saying.

Maybe the next step will be toward holographic movies? A movie in where you can stand next to the actor and be in or part of the movie as some kind of an observer? 3d is a step into that direction I guess.

Btw..I haven't seen Kallisti yet...any good?

Not my fav sci-fi film, as that honour goes to Blade Runner, but Close Encounters of the Third Kind is almost joint first.

And I can't believe that this is the first name check it gets on this thread.

Hands down Blade Runner is the best Sci-fi flick of all time. I can't wait for the sequel. We're all replicants anyway you look at it. Priss was a bad ass pleasure unit. All women should be like her

I can’t believe no one mentioned “They Live”! Awesome flick!

Dune, yes. Go with the miniseries (2000).

I agree with someone elses pick of Moon, very worthy film even if not an action film.

My older favorite sci-fi's are

The Thing
Star Wars
Aliens
Starman (no action though)
The Original Terminator
Predator: Arnie in the jungle taking on a Predator, what's not to love?

My semi-newer favorites

5th Element, it's campy fun

Moon: too great of a movie to not see once. It is moving, scary, sad the acting was perfect, the directing was perfect.

Pandorum: this movie is a few years old but I just recently watched it for the first time. I loved it, creepy and suspensful. Might be more of the horror genre though.

The War Of The Worlds

I almost forgot Planet Of The Apes (original) one of the best sci-fi films, definitely a favorite.

I watched your trailer and Liquid sky is a little too much for me..a bit much avant-garde. Maybe the 1927 movie "The Love of Zero" is something for you too.
