Had a lovely night out with Kim last night, where we filled up on steak and ribs, and digested it all while we saw a showing of District 9. In short, without trying to do a full review here, this movie is incredible. Completely original, wonderfully realized, and fantastically executed. Movies like this give me faith in the idea that great ideas and innovative direction and writing are still alive in the movie business.
But that’s not what this post is about. I just wanna talk about my favorite sci-fi movies of all time, and here is my short list. Hoping you’ll share yours as well. My list after the jump.
In no particular order:
- Enemy Mine
- The Empire Strikes Back
- Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan
- Logan’s Run
- Blade Runner
- District 9 (very high on my list)
- 12 Monkeys
- The Matrix (first one)
I know I am missing a few. Will add em if I think about it. I’m pretty sure, from what I have heard from close friends, that Moon will be on that list, but I haven’t seen it yet.
So, here is your chance! What Scifi films make your top list and why? Let the comments fly!
