    Ugh, I forgot about Looper. Lists are too hard.

    The lack of Godzilla hurts me.

    Speaking of classics, Them! is a fantastic film. Nobody here seen that either, I imagine.

    I've seen it, I just kind of lump it into B-Movie horror over Sci-Fi though.

    It's a legitimately good movie though with fine acting and effects for the time. It's also a great piece of film history, representing popular fears and ideas in the 50s about science. Science Fiction broadly falls into the "Science Will Uplift Us" type and the "Cautionary Tale" type. Them! is a good example of the latter, as is Godzilla.

    So is Jurassic Park, for a more modern example. But that's more in the novel than the movie.

    Oh man. I don't consider Star Wars sci-fi as it's more space fantasy. Here we go:

    Her
    Donnie Darko
    Blade Runner
    Snowpiercer
    Galaxy Quest
    Inception
    Mad Max: Fury Road
    The Martian
    A Clockwork Orange
    The Adjustment Bureau
    The Truman Show
    Dark City
    The Thing
    Secret of NIMH
    2001: A Space Odyssey
    Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie
    Wrath of Khan
    Looper
    Wall-E
    Repo!: A Genetic Opera
    Planet of the Apes
    A Scanner Darkly
    Gravity
    Children of Men
    RoboCop
    Interstellar
    District 9
    Big Hero 6

    EDIT: The Iron Giant, Akira, Nausicaa, and Ghost in the Shell too. Oops

    Pick any 10 of these and I'm satisfied.

    What "they" said, plus Pinoocchio, I mean Artificial Intelligence.

    I'm one of the sentimental saps who actually liked AI and think people are too harsh on it.

    In no particular order...

    The Matrix
    Gattaca
    Blade Runner
    Bicentennial Man
    The Fifth Element
    Strange Days

    EDIT: I just realised that all six of these films came out in the 90s, with the exception of Blade Runner. Interesting.
