"2001", I feel, is sorely overrated. It's just a slow movie, with nice visuals, but it's only real appeal is in HAL. The rest is just filler. 2010 was much more entertaining.

"Blade Runner", I couldn't get through, personally. I may revisit it someday.

I did chose "Star Wars". It just appeals to so many people on so many levels. Inventive special efffects, unique characters, elaborate costumes and set design, and a simple story with a great message. It just works, and it's always bee na big part of my life.

That's a very small poll. Personally I have a ton of Sci-Fi favorites. So is kinda hard to pick one above all.

2001 was one of the most boring movies I've ever seen and I wasn't too thrilled with Blade Runner either so I say Star Wars (between those three that is).

Ditto. If I have to pick from those. Sci Fi is my genre, so picking favorites is like deciding which of my kids I love more.

Not that I have kids, but, you know.

I am so glad to be in the presence of people who share my opinion on 2001. This was one of the slowest paced movies out there. It was an hour to long. When the movie is over the only thing your left with is Why did i sit through this, for a metaphor?

As for the best sci-fi movie. I think you owuld be hard pressed to find a better written and executed movie or movies than the original star wars trilogy. those movies have everything from diverse characters to envoking a number of your emotions.

Blade runner is another flick that i had a hard time accepting. Growimg up i would always watch the movie, though i loved the concept and acting i couldnt help but be bored by the pace of the movie. A great Sci-fi flick none the less

My personal favorite Sci-fi movie without argument is Aliens. This has it all,, for you sci-fi lovers. some of the best characters out there, Great one-liners and near perfect story set up. It still reins to be one of the most suspensfull movies for me if not the most. After aliens goes to the matrix

The book is amazing but the movie is long and slaughters the original story. You seriously believe that the film Dune is a greater peice of cinematic entertainment than star wars? I think i would have to pity that opinion

I just want to point out that Special Effects aren't need to make a great Sci-Fi movie. For example there is a film called Stalker and it has none whatsoever Special Effects, but the storyline and the dialogues are superb!

Take away all the Special effects from some of the most overrated Sci-Fi films and you get a very empty film. Please take note of also that eXistenZ doesn't have over the top Special Effects, but it delivers a real good Sci-Fi Thriller.

Extrodinarily true big grin but Star wars is not really very original story wise. It just steals stories and peices them together and its effects and the spectical is the only thing it has... Dune the movie still retains most of the books essence and its story is beyond original..... and come one it doesn't really rely on special effects laughing out loud

How can you say that Star wars isnt original. At the time there was nothing like it. Indeed the story was inspired by many different genres and tales, but inspired is the key word. Any film or story is inspired by somthing, somthing that you can say that it was stolen from.Even Dune was inspired by somthing, though i would say that the original story is one of if not the most riginal stories, but i think star wars gives us a more personal experience. Star Wars at the time was a special effects killer., but it is the story that makes it one of the most memorable and engrossing movies out there. Today the star war effects can be duplicated by spending 50$ at a dollar store, yet it is the story that gives it such an impact. I agree with dancer as im sure most people do on the point that it is a story that makes a good movie not just a sci-fi story. Unfortunately when it comes to sci-fi movies, all the best stories dont get made because they cant get a mind boggling budget for special effects.

Well I have to go with Star Wars. Although really I would choose Aliens if it were in the poll. It builds upon the first but doesnt ruin it. It expands the multiple alien concept that the first did'nt consider (Not to mention I love the Alien.)

And giving respect to the classics in thrid would be Metropolis, an old silent movie directed by Fritz Lang. Extremly engrossing considering it is a silent movie.

I'm reminded of another poll I saw recently.

Would you rather:

a) receive a cookie and five dollars

b) have your head chopped off

c) have your head chopped off and set on fire
