Agree they should make a movie of the Honor Harrington books.

This reminds me that there are a bunch of fan Star Trek videos and CDs. I have some of them but then my attention drifted elsewhere. I think they ran into some legal trouble as well.

At least one. I really enjoyed the 2009 Star Trek movie, and the 2013 follow-up.
For anyone who's remotely a fan of the original Star Trek TV show...

It seems the original sets were not bought, new ones were constructed. This from the website:

“STAGE 9 STUDIOS contains a full-scale suite of Constitution-class starship sets modeled after those used in the original STAR TREK series, including: the bridge, transporter room, engineering, sickbay, briefing room, captain's quarters, auxiliary control, a 100 foot-long corridor, a nearby green screen location, and much more!”

“STC shot in an 18,500-square-foot studio which housed the largest, most complete standing TOS sets in the world — including the bridge, corridors, turbolifts, quarters, sickbay, briefing/rec room, transporter room, Jefferies tube, engineering, auxiliary control, shuttlecraft, planet set, and much more — precisely constructed using the original Star Trek blueprints (see the interactive virtual tour above).”

One must start with 2001. It was so groundbreaking and wide in scope.
Bladerunner. The original is a film noire SF movie done to perfection.
Star Wars. The first one. "The Empire Strikes Back" is also excellent.
Time After Time! I haven't watched that in years, but it's worth seeing again.
Invasion of the Body Snatchers. I prefer the remake with Donald Sutherland.
Alien and Aliens. Both very good, and I like others in the series, but these two are best.

I like the X Files movies (and of course the series). In fact I am watching the last two seasons on Hulu that I never saw before. The reboot.

1. Forbidden Planet - the 1950s SF film to end all SF films, although seeing Leslie Nielsen as a young actor, after Airplane and Sgt Frank Dreplin, is a bit hard to keep a straight face. Star Trek, the Original Series, really picks up where FP left off (particularly if you have ever seen the full pilot episode of Star Trek "The Cage" which was later excerpted to make "The Menagerie") in "Where No Man Has Gone Before"

2. Blade Runner (the Director's Cut)

3. Arrival - Amy Adams is just stunning in a film which is profoundly moving and thought provoking

4. Gattaca

5. Total Recall - Arnie S did a lot in the SF genre, this is perhaps his second best

6. Aliens (Alien is in fact a better movie, but it's a horror movie as much as anything else; Aliens is a very informed by the whole Science Fiction adventure genre - a script that could have been written by half a dozen SF authors, use of SF tropes like military sentry robot, the cargo Walkers etc)

7. A Scanner Darkly. A flawed film - perhaps because Philip K Dick could set up situations brilliantly but then his resolutions were often flat. But the realisation, in animation, of Bob Arctor, an undercover cop pursuing a drug dealer who might be ... Bob Arctor ... is just fantastic

8. Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure (and sequel) - Be Excellent! What more can I say?

9. Back to the Future

10. Mad Max II (The Road Warrior) has much to commend itself, although it is really a western. But it's a good western.

11. The Terminator - Arnie's best SF film

12. Tomb Raider and Tomb Raider II - with Angelina Jolie, in the original German ;-). Seriously, they are even more fun when you don't speak the language into which they are dubbed - they make more sense.

13. Solo & Rogue One: a Star Wars Tale - it is the 2 spinoff movies that get closer to the true spirit (Solo) of the Samurai Western-- pack more character development into the series than was managed since the original trilogy. Rogue One is different and much darker in tone, but Felicity Jones just steals the screen - her portrait of the desperate resistance fighter, trying to survive, is just so powerful (and the Imperial Base they break in to is my local Tube/ subway station, I used to head to work imagining the storm troopers charging by in the other direction ;-)).

14. Wall-E. The second half is a bit dull, but the first 45 minutes are just completely rivetting film-making. A thousand environmental messages & rivetting romance in a 45 minutes where not one word is spoken, and the characters are 2 robots and a cockroach.

I would actually put a vote in there for "Starship Troopers" - which is actually a satire (as is Total Recall) but I don't think many viewers got that.

Stretching the point I would add "Conan the Barbarian" and "Conan the Destroyer" as 2 classic sword & sorcery pictures, both quite close to the original Robert E Howard mood. Red Sonja, on the other hand, is one of the worst movies that I have ever seen- so there you go.

The list of bad SF movies is at least 3x as long, and then there's the Star Wars tales (the original trilogy is worth it; the next 2 trilogies? Echhh...)

Glad to see some love for Gattaca. It's a modern classic.

How about The Thirteenth Floor? It's maybe more noir than sci-fi, but then so is Bladerunner, so I guess that's okay.

It's debatable whether super hero movies are sci-fi or fantasy, maybe both. I've enjoyed at least half of the more recent Marvel universe movies, but I'd guess anyone who might like them probably already knows about them.

If you do like them and you somehow skipped Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse, because it was animated, it's extremely good and worth watching.

I'd also throw in Big Hero 6, which is a kids' movie, but a lot of fun.

Mystery Men is an older one, and very campy, but I love it.

I am NOT a super-hero movie fan, but I was drug to the theater for Spiderverse and I have to say, it was a very good movie. It is even a bit more Sci-Fi than usual for the genre. The animation was perfect.

Longtime lurker/first-time poster. Of all the posts, finally had to create an account just to second ValueThinker's list here. In particular, love to see Gattaca and Wall-E here. Gattaca's relevance grows over time. Brilliant casting and acting. As for Wall-E, just recently argued with a friend that it's not just a children's movie. Beautiful.
Cheers!

Yeah, few Pixar films are mere "children's movies", and if your friend is avoiding them because of that, they're missing out on some wonderful cinema.

I don't know the 13th Floor. Will have to look it up.

"Being John Malkovich" is, in effect, a Science Fiction film. A very strange one ..

Wall-E is not primarily a children's movie, I don't think.

It is full of references only an adult would get. For example the dance in space, with the fire extinguisher, is Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers.

The message is so universal, and so powerful. It is a film for the ages.

A sublime movie. A colleague is of Ghanaian origin - the effect on his young son (of mixed racial origin) of that movie.

The Dino de Laurentis Kyle Machlachlan film just fell apart - probably too much of a book to cram into a movie.

Blade Runner. Philip K Dick was trying to write a noir SF novel. But with the classic Dick tropes about identity (See Total Recall, A Scanner Darkly etc). The replicants run their own, completely identical SF PD, with the same people - which hunts replicants ...

Blade Runner had a superb script, and some fantastic acting (Sebastian, Tyrell, Roy Batty (Rutger Hauer)).

Is Contagion just fiction, or does it fall into science fiction? Just re-watched it.

Star Wars (Episodes 4-6, anyway).

Star Trek - Wrath of Khan, First Contact

Solaris. Both version but Tarkovsky is less commercial. The Stalker is good too, although not a "real" SF movie.
I really liked first Matrix back in the day, as a teenager. Only first one. It has so many layers.

That's the problem. These things don't map well to the screen.

You have to have screenwriters who genuinely love Science Fiction, and I think they are few and far between.

Someone like Margaret Atwood can give a speech denouncing "that raygun stuff" and then write bestselling "serious" fiction which is essentially SF, and get away with the false dichotomy between "serious" fiction and Science Fiction.* (She may later have relented, not sure).

Particularly when The Handmaid's Tale has a strikingly similar setting and plot to Robert A Heinlein's novella If This Goes On.

* she should read Octavia Butler.

Luckily, for us, there is a 4th foundation that, I'm quite sure, will ensure history is not repeated from aberrations like I, Robot.

I'm glad some earlier posters mentioned Brazil and Gattaca. The other bigger movies are more often remembered but these two along with the old classics remain some of my favorites, along with Bladerunner which has benefitted from a higher profile thanks to Bladerunner 2049.

12 Monkeys also bears mentioning.

Has anyone mentioned The Matrix? It obviously belongs on *someone's* list. I can't remember anyone mentioning Back to the Future, but someone must have.

All in all, a great thread. Here are some additional movies I'm not sure have been mentioned before.
Arrival
12 Monkeys
Monsters
Children of Men

Invasion of the Body Snatchers. Both and a rare case where the second version is as good as or even better than the original.

I'll throw it out there, King Kong-- the original. I don't know if it is science fiction but it was a great movie.

If you are a fan of the original Star Trek, try watching "USS Callister," which is an episode of Black Mirror, on Netflix. Highly creative twist on (or homage to) the original series blended in with modern technology, gaming, cyberspace, genetics. Really inventive writing.

For thinking outside the box here are a few that you might not normally consider as being science fiction but when you think about it they could be classified that way.

1) Groundhog day

2) The Wizard of Oz

3) Frankenstein (The original)
