I watched this on pay per view a couple of weeks ago, I had also seen it in the theaters when it came out.
However, I enjoyed it so much on ppv that I watched this movie four times during the period I had it.
Brilliant movie by Mr. Scott. I love it. I hope he considers doing the Alien series again. Normally I am totally opposed to remakes, but if he did them, I would be eager to see it.
Bladerunner, Dune and Star Trek - The Wrath of Khan
BTW, I loved Brazil, and 12 Monkeys.
I don’t think I know Dark City.
Serenity number one followed by Empire Strikes Back. Also, do monster movies count (it seems that’s more of what Sci Fi channel shows now). If they do then Dog Soldiers (a low budget film with a squad of British Soldiers fighting werewolves in the Scottish Moors) rounds out the list.
Invasion of the Body Snatchers
Serenity, (also best conservative movie ever).
The Fifth Element because I love Bruce Willis’ snarkiness.
Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan, because I love all classic Star Trek and this was the best of the Trek movies.
Nevin’s Ringworld series, Laumer’s Retief series and Lewis’s Silent Planet series.
Hollywood did a great job on those films!
Who’d think there was anyone in that town with wit and competence to bring them to the screen and make a fortune!
And for anyone who was ever a ten year old boy, here’s the greatest sci fi movie you ever saw:http://archive.org/details/phantom_empire_chapter_1
...Gene Autry, an advanced underground civilization from before Atlantis, and the Junior Thunder Riders!
(not in any particular order)
The First Star Wars (A New Hope)
The Time Machine (the original)
The Terminator (the first)
The Matrix (first)
Galaxy Quest (my guilty pleasure)
There are a number on others’ lists. I did not see these mentioned so far :)
It's a sci-fi film noir where nothing is what it appears to be, memory is unreliable, and no one knows what they think they know.
Ha! Linked to it above.
Earth Vs. The Flying Saucers(1956)
Original versions of Invaders from Mars and invasion of the Body Snatchers.
