Damnit, Min... I scroll to the bottom, after reading everyone's answers, and think I'm going to put "Forbidden Planet" down here... and THERE YOU FREAKIN' ARE... damnit.

I'm still a huge fan of Star Wars: A New Hope (original version), and of Aliens, which are both excellent choices, but I think the nod goes to the original big-budget sci-fi breakthrough. It simultaneously awed and scared the shit out of me, as a kid, and still to this day I never fail to enjoy it when I watch it again as an adult.

Honorable mentions to 2001: A Space Oddysey, District 9, the first two Terminator films, and to the animated but in my opinion woefully underrated The Iron Giant.

I still cry every time I watch The Iron Giant, when he says "Supa-mannn."

RE: Favourite Sci-Fi movie?
I saw a double header of Outland (Sean Connery) and Alien in the theater with a roommate I went through Radioman's school with....

We dropped acid beforehand.

I was peaking when the fucking Alien came outta the guy's chest......


Explains a lot, eh?

RE: Favourite Sci-Fi movie?
I actually thought "The Borg" on Star Trek was one of their best stories.

Blade Runner is forever in my library. Love the music, the rainy chitty weather and oooh, that one that may not ever die.
So much of that one is awesome storytelling.

Aliens was truly a lesson in scare-science at it's best and awesome.

Terminator held the top spot for such a LONG time too. Had me fixed in place after: "what the fuc..., laundry day?"


RocketSurgeon76, now really, Iron Giant?!
I want some of what you're smoking friend. Must be a story behind that one!

You have to be odd to be #1.

> Yes, how could I have forgotten? Blade Runner should also be on my list, the version with the Harrison Ford voiceover. Also, Robocop 1, Robocop 2 (Peter Weller) Thumbsup
