Hello, PC'ers! I thought this would be a great poll - in one of the most popular movie genres ever, science fiction, what is your favorite movie? Or, in the cases of some, like "Star Wars" and "Star Trek," what is your favorite movie franchise?

And...let the race begin!

Oh, and if you want to chat about it, go right ahead -- this is a forum after all! Explaining why a movie is your favorite may get others interested in watching it too!

"The Day the Earth stood still" - its really old black and white but they did a lot with the story and not much special effects.

I'm choosing Star Trek (duh) but Inception is fucking awesome. I guess I have more emotional investment in the Star Trek characters (TOS btw).

They Live.

And the most recent one that I can think of that -really- impressed me, was Pandorum. If you liked Sunshine (I loved it) and Event Horizon, then its another that you'll like. I really like scifi-horror that takes place on space stations.

omfg thank you, I saw these two movies on netflix, one was called Franklyn and I couldn't remember theother one, the other day I was trying to for some random reason and it was pandorum! I might note both films feature hot foreign actresses (Franklyn and Pandorum) representing Germany and France :D

They both had relatively low budgets, I really recommend Franklyn. It's not entirely sci-fi, more psychological and dystopian but it just oozes style and I enjoyed it very much.

It was a choice between 2001 and Blade Runner for me. I went with Blade Runner this time because I like the movies equally, and I needed a way to arbitrarily decide, so I went with what I felt like at the moment. :laughing:

Props for putting Solaris up there though. :wink:

Star Wars because it was iconic for its time (the one I picked).
Matrix (the first one only) for its symbolism.
Avatar for being totally awesome in 3D.
Fifth Element for its humor and feel good quality.
Starship Troopers because of its theme and dark humor (kinda - the propaganda commercial of the soldiers handing out bullets to children makes me laugh every time haha).
John Carpenters The Thing for scaring me as a child haha.

To be honest, I forgot it. Plus, it's a great movie, but it's generally considered to be an action/horror classic, rather than a sci-fi classic.

For me, it's a tossup between 2001: A Space Odyssey and Akira, which I'm surprised has not been mentioned yet. So many jaw-dropping scenes and intriguing concepts in that movie; it's hard to count them all.
