I'll go ahead and vote for 2001. I think it deserves all the recognition it gets simply because of it's unique storytelling devices and simply amazing visual effects that were about 20+ years ahead of their time.

No, i dont forget aobut those, infact a man apart is my favorite movie of his. However, i dont consider those dramatic roles for him. Knockaround guys was a comedy/drama. I wouldnt give diesel credit for a dramatic role in that movie. He just happend to fall in a kind of dramatic movie. He still gave a thug performance with reason and loyalty. As for man apart, yeah he did some dramatic acting in the movie, but it was still in an action hero way. I would consider these two characters an elaborated version of what we got from him in fast and the furious. when i say drama i mean movies that require a total make over from the action star presence, like so many action stars transfer to.

I love 2001 so much.

"Pitch Black", in my humble opinion, is indeed a fantastic Sci Fi movie


Oh I agree with that so much. I was blown away when I saw it on the big screen, oooooo all the different colours!! I remember thinking that all the way through when first watching it.

Cinematography/art direction is lovely.


I don't care what anyone says, one of my all time favourite sci fi movies is Barbarella.

big grin Fabulous.

Out of those, Blade Runner definitely, although the novel's better. I hate Star Wars and 2001 does (no disrespect to Kubrick) go up its own ass at the end.

Planet of the Apes, reminds us the true value of Sci-fi, deep meaningful plots rather than special effects.

Real Sci Fi was around long before POTA. "The Day the Earth Stood Still", "War of the Worlds" and "Forbidden Planet" all from the 50's, all used special effects (what was available to them. anyway), and it's still going to be a Sci Fi constant. The story usually plays seconds fiddle to the visuals and extravagant characters.

word to all the Blade Runner fans...that would be my number one, followed by the Matrix trilogy and Soylent Green, of course. Maybe Invasion of the Body Snatchers too. Emperor Strikes Back would be like number 4 on my list or so.

does anyone else agree with me that lately sci-fi movies have gone down the crapper? I don't think I've seen a good one in a long time. maybe I'm forgetting something though

Sci Fi doesn't have a draw in mainstream cinema anymore. "The Matrix" was fresh in 1999, but since then, there's been nothing. "Chronicles of Riddick" was Sci Fi getting back to it's roots. Vast universes, interesting characters, etc, etc.

I don't even count "Star Wars", because the movies have been pathetic and it's draw is it's namesake.

Personally, I couldn't put "Blade Runner" above "Alien", "Aliens", "Terminator", "Terminator 2", "Planet of the Apes", "Star Wars", "The Empire Strikes Back", "The Matrix", "Pitch Black", "Predator" "The Day the Earth Stood Still", "The Time Machine"..etc etc etc...the inspirations for new Sci Fi.

I sometimes think I'm the ONLY one here who likes Star Trek. roll eyes (sarcastic) At any rate, Star Trek:First Contact would be up there at the top of my list.

If Back to the Future counts as sci fi, it's a close 2nd if not 1st place.

Other favorites are Stargate, AI, The Matrix, Galaxy Quest.

Others I like pretty well are T2, Planet of the Apes, Signs, Contact, 12 Monkeys, Dark City.
