10 Greatest Sci-Fi Films Ever
« Reply #1 on: October 07, 2020, 10:45:31 PM »
This is Farout Magazines's view of the greatest sci-films

10 Reanimator. A film I never really liked

9 Scanners.  Classic early Cronenberg, with Patrick McGoohan (The Prisoner)

8 Altered States by Ken

7 Cube.  Nice idea but I didn't think it stood up for all the film

6 28 Days Later.  A string of classic films- Shallow Grave, Trainspotting, Slumdog, but Danny Boyle seems to have lost it a bit (or I haven't seen later hidden gems)

5 Videodrome.  Same Cronenberg category as above, with James Wood and Debbie Harry (Blondie)

4 Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978 version).  Good film, remake with Donald Sutherland was also good

3 The Fly, Cronenberg remake.  Don't really like, I like the original with Vincent Price

2 The Thing, John Carpenter remake.  A classic.

1 Alien, also a classic as is Aliens

What is missing?
  • Blade Runner
  • 2001 A Space Odyssey
  • THX1138 - early George Lukas. Predates and very different from Star Wars
  • Solaris by Tarkovsky
  • The War of the Worlds- the original NOT the Tom Cruise one
  • Predator or Terminator
  • The Man Who Fell To Earth with Bowie
