But that doesn't mean there weren't some great Sci Fi movies. There certainly were. Here is a list of my all time favorite Sci Fi movies, not necessarily in any particular order.
I know there has been a lot of criticism about this movie. But as someone who never read the book, I was very much impressed with this movie. I thought the writing, the plot, the actors, the casting, the directing, and the overall production were nothing less than great.
Unlike Dune, this movie had no one criticizing it. And rightly so.
I think this movie is vastly underrated. Imo, it was a movie way ahead of its time.
The original, of course. The George Pal production. It was an excellent updated version of the HG Wells novel. Those Martian war machines were awesome.
Yeah, the title is corny as hell. The acting and production are dated. But this movie is a sentimental favorite. Those flying saucers by Ray Harryhausen were amazing. Liked the aliens, too.
The first two installments of the Star Wars franchise definitely make my list. But only the first two.
Sure there's a lot of other Sci Fi movies that would probably make other peoples' lists. Like Avatar, the original Day the Earth Stood Still, Blade Runner, Close Encounters, Terminator, Alien, and many more... But for me, the above listed movies are my personal favorites. Sadly, as I was saying yesterday, not a single Star Trek movie makes this list. That's too bad, because if I were talking about TV series, then the original Star Trek would be #1.
