Are you a connoisseur of science fiction films? Check out Time Out‘s list of the “100 Best Sci-Fi Movies” and see how many you’ve fed to your eyeballs. Let me know in the comments how many you can tick off, and any notable absences or problems with the order that you can see.
Apart from catering to some of the ‘blockbuster’ movies that are more sci-fi in setting than theme, I think it’s a great list…the fact that I thought The Matrix should be a bit higher, but couldn’t figure out which movie to tip out to make way for it, suggests that they’ve done an excellent job. No doubt helped by the fact that the list was voted on by “leading sci-fi experts, filmmakers, science fiction writers, film critics and scientists”, such as Guillermo del Toro and George R.R. Martin.
