How could I forget! Galaxy Quest! The best Star Trek movie ever made.

While I'm adding films:

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan - I have a soft spot for this
Time After Time - also directed by Nicholas Meyer, wherein H. G. Wells time-travels to the 1970s to hunt down Jack The Ripper.
The Last Starfighter - Greetings, Starfighter!
Tron - Probably the first thing I could honestly call a spiritual experience. The fractal echoes of the Users in their programs, and the resonances between the two worlds nearly blew my mind.
The Thing
Blade Runner
Red Planet - Turned out way better than I expected (I worked on some of the vfx)

YES! biggrin

I must say that I really didn't care for Blade Runner. I intend to see it again, maybe it will click for me, but the first time I watched it I was not pleased sad

Really?! That's pretty cool! I personally didn't think it was a very good movie, but it sure did look nice, so I watch it from time to time.

Quote (Solaris)
Planet Of The Apes 1968

Of course, how could I forget!

Quote (MedievalMarsellus)
Wall-E
Spaceballs

I ♥ Wall-E happy
I didn't include Spaceballs on my list because it falls into the space-fantasy genre like Star Wars does, so it's not really sci-fi.

I'll concede that Ridley Scott's more interested in style, atmosphere, and mood than a solid plot. But once I'd learned Deckard was indeed a Replicant, the movie takes on a whole new gravitas for me.

heard Scott admit to Terri Gross on Fresh Air that it was so...which was news to me, I didn't even know it was a possibility or there was debate about it. But then, I had only seen the original theatrical release, which muddied the plot.

Red Planet wasn't a *fabulously great* movie, but I found it more compelling than I expected. A bit like Frodo's quest to Mordor, with AMIEE as Gollum.

I've been fearful this movie would suck (and it still might) but I must confess the clips I've seen are kinda cool, even with the camp and over-the-top designs. Maybe because of it. I hadn't seen this particular clip and I laughed aloud a couple of times. And that cannon is pretty spectacular. Thanks for sharing!

I could not choose a favourite movie, because I liked a lot of sci-fi films (I almost liked every single sci-fi film I've seen...). For the while I remember the following (some of them have been already mentioned)

Alien (specially the 2nd, but I liked the entire saga)
Independence Day
Stargate
War of the worlds (I prefered the 1952 version, but I also liked the new one)
The time machine (both 1960 and 2001 versions)
The planet of the apes
Event horizon
Mission to mars
Wall-e
Contact
The matrix trilogy
Star wars (the entire saga), if we call it sci-fi
Cocoon (I've only seen the 1st one)
Total recall
Demolition man
Fortress
...
well I don't remember more, but sure there are a lot more biggrin

I love many sci-fi films, but one of my all time favourite films has to be the 'Matrix,' because it relates to my own experience of lucid dreaming and how our connection to our so-called 'waking' reality could be nothing more than an illusion - A dream that we have to awaken from.

I have never had a lucid dream. At least i can't remember having one. Closest i have gotten has been a weird state, where i know i'm dreaming, but it's still like watching a film. I can't effect the dream and i know it is a dream.

That's still a lucid dream. There are different types of lucid dreaming. False awakenings, controllable dreams, nightmare lucid dreams, etc etc.

In no particular order:

Star Wars (and the italian prequels: dark ressurection!)
Close Encounters,
Contact
Battlestar Galactica (although the new series is more of a sci-fi soap opera - but I liked it!)
Deep Impact and Armaggedon (Although Armageddon's scenario is copy-paste from deep impact which was released prior to Armaggedon),
Mission to Mars and Red Planet (sister movies again)
Apollo 13 (the only historical movie of real human space adventure !)
All Alien quadrilogy
Predator (but not Alien Vs Predator: that sucks)
2001: A space Odyssey and 2010: The year we made contact. Also I would like to read the books 2050 and 3000: the final odyssey - if someone has them and want to sell them wink )
And my recent favorite: Sunshine mostly because of the music score!

Ps: And Solaris by Andrei Tarkovski - how I could forget that, also war of the worlds, Independence Day (I really want a sequel to that: Why did they have to invent tha damn virus and completeley anihilate the poor aliens? Cruel humans.. ), The day the earth stood still (with Keanu Reeves), Chain reaction (again with keanu reeves and Morgan Freeman: I really liked the duo on that!),
and another great movie was: Starman! it created the same feelings as Close Encounters!
The Chronicles of Riddick and Pitch Black. Also the last starfighter.

Among Sci-Fi movies I love, there is Screamers, a 1995 movie, inspired from a K. Dick novel. I recommand also A.I..

I have seen also the Animatrix series, which are a good complement to the films.

Quote (neutronium76)
Predator.

I agree. Predator I is the best predator movie.

Quote (MedievalMarsellus)
Dünyayı Kurtaran Adam.

We have the same references ! Do you know that a sequel cames out in 2006 : Dünyayı Kurtaran Adam'in Oğlu. And it is a comedy !

Quote (Robbie)
My own experience of lucid dreaming.

I love lucid dreaming. One day, I have a weird dream. I woke up at the morning and I noticed that I had lost some teeth. So I went to my bathroom mirror to look this, but the light was dazzling me. And I thought : "That's a dream, and this dream sucks. I want to wake up." After some tries, I understood that I couldn't wake up, so I said :"I'm stuck here. Let's try telekinesis !". And I succeed to move my trash can two centimeters away with the only strengh of my mind. Then I decided to put myself into bed, and I woke up for real.

Everytime I do lucid dreaming, the dream was odd, or I had an astral projection after. About lucid dreaming, I recommand a Sci-Fi related movie : Inception.

It totally counts. I love that series. cool

But why no Battlestar Galactica (the 2004 version)? It's the best Sci-Fi TV-series ever made IMO.
I guess its a matter of taste.
