I love the Blue Oyster Cult “Don’t Fear The Reaper” at the beginning.

The original Day the Earth Stood Still with Michael Rennie
The original War of the Worlds with Gene Barry
The original Time Machine with Rod Taylor

4th would be Enpire Strikes Back

The Mote in God's Eye.

The last has still not been made.

At first glance, I thought, "When did THAT come out!?!?!?!

The main theme by Snuffy Walden is also excellent.

The original “The Thing” (the one with the then unknown James Arness in the title role), which scared the cr*p out of everybody in the early ‘50’s - in seventh grade you were considered a hero if you went to see it and showed up alive in school the next morning - or better yet see it at the matinee so you didn’t have to go home in the dark after the show - watch the skies, watch the skies......

Thanks,

I did find another Malcolm McDowell film “Clockwork Orange” seriously disturbing, but I don’t think it qualifies as Sci-Fi.

To this day Time after time is one of my favorite movies. I saw it when I was young and it scared me to death. Great movie. Malcolm Mc Dowell was phenomenol and Mary Steenburgen beautiful.

You can’t go wrong with Gary Sinise and Matt Frewer as `Trashcan Man.’ Frewer was good in `Dawn of the Dead’ too.
I don’t like King’s politics but he can sure write horror.

Lots of great movies here, but I can't believe that nobody listed the classic, "SpaceBalls!"

“Radar Men of the Moon” (1952) was pretty tolerable, considering how formulaic and severely low-budget Republic serials had become by that time. It was vastly better than Columbia’s serial “The Lost Planet” (1953), which I found to be a massive bore.

Excellent references!

That scene you reference with David was just fantastic.

“Why did your people make me? We made you because we could. Can you imagine your disappointment for you to hear the same thing from your creator?”

And then David does what he did.

Brilliant, brilliant stuff.

And then your reference to Fury’s statement on bigger WMDs...

The Engineers had the biggest WMD of all, so big in fact that it could potentially be a universe killer, so big that it killed them, but not big enough to kill its other creation, man.

And in the last scene, why did she truly want to go where they came from? I believe it not for any answer to any question, it was to do what man does best, and that is deliver a payload of destruction.

How about “The Fallen Ones”

Yes, it is a SciFi original movie, but how far wrong can you go casting Tom Bosley as a Rabi?

Has anyone mentioned `Village of the Damned’ (B&W 1960)? That movie gave me sci/fi nightmares.

A Boy and his Dog.

The film ‘Surrogates’ was sci-fi, and disturbing.
