    Assuming we're going by movies and not franchises then I lose a bunch of spots to Star Wars films. The other 2 spots are probably The Matrix and maybe Alien, or Intersteller. I also really, really liked The Martian, but I've only seen it the once and that was very recently. I'm not sure that I'd be willing to put it in a list with my favourites.

    1. Alien
    2. Back to the Future
    3. 2001: A Space Odyssey
    4. Her
    5. Blade Runner
    6. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

    Again, it all depends on your definitions though. I'd classify Aliens as an action film rather than SF for instance, so I would be less likely to consider it here even though it's amazing.

    If Her is Sci-Fi then that's absolutely in my top six, as its one of my top five films of all time in any genre. I just never really thought of it as a Sci-Fi I guess.

    Oh, that's a good one. And yeah, I'd consider it sci-fi, personally. I mean, it's more speculative fiction, if you want to be specific, but I consider that a branch of sci-fi anyway.

    I totally see where the Sci-Fi label fits it, but I just always thought of it as a straight up drama and that the Sci-Fi elements weren't really the defining characteristic of the movie for me. But I get all emotional and swept up in the film whenever I watch it so I probably have no idea what's going on with the genres really, I just know I absolutely smurfing adore it.

    Her is an absolutely beautiful film.

    I'm not good at lists but the majority of my faves are already listed. E.T. has a special place in my heart though.

    1. Contact
    2. The Martian
    3. Interstellar
    4. Prometheus.
    5. Armageddon (I just love this movie. I cry evrtiem)
    6. Independence Day




    Not counting Series cause that is unfair and i'd say a lot of star treks and star wars. ID's sequel isn't out yet. I loved Alien but damn prometheus was great imo. I count this as it's own and not a series cause while it losely tied, I think of it as a standalone.
