Top 10 Sci-Fi Movies

With each new year, the date is starting to resemble those in Science fiction movies. Our reality is close to those futuristic ideas in classic novels.  In honor of that fact, here’s a list of my top Sci-Fi movies.

*Note: Quotes taken from IMBD.

1. Event Horizon (1997) “A rescue crew investigates a spaceship that disappeared into a black hole and has now returned…with someone or something new on-board.”

2. Aliens (1986) “The planet from Alien has been colonized, but contact is lost. This time, the rescue team has impressive firepower, but will it be enough?” Aliens designed by H.R. Giger. Oscar Winning film.

3. Pandorum (2009) “A pair of crew members aboard a spaceship wake up with no knowledge of their mission or their identities.”

4. Sunshine (2007) “A team of astronauts are sent to re-ignite the dying sun 50 years into the future.”

5. Minority Report (2002) “In the future, criminals are caught before the crimes they commit, but one of the officers in the special unit is accused of one such crime and sets out to prove his innocence.” Oscar Nominee.

6. Abyss (1989)”A civilian diving team are enlisted to search for a lost nuclear submarine and face danger while encountering an alien aquatic species.” Oscar Winner.

7. Star Wars – All of them. Episode IV: A New Hope (1977) Won 6 Oscars.

  1. This is an awesome list.

    For those of you who enjoyed Terminator you might want to check out the Sarah Connor Chronicles (canceled show, available on Netflix). Of course, once you start you can’t stop watching…so be prepared to watch all three seasons! Very sci-fi yet current with really indepth character development (not that the characters are hard to look at or anything).
