If I have to take just one, it's 2001: A Space Odyssey. It was the film that finally made Sci-Fi a respected genre. And Star Wars would quantum-leap it's popularity nine years later.

Being someone who enjoys cinematography and mood over action and storyline, I'd have to go with 2001: A Space Odyssey.

The poll on here is a joke. But most people, like myself, will continue to read the thread to maybe get lucky and find someone mention a sci-fi gem that they might not have seen already. Im not proclaiming any of these are the greatest of all time, just some of my personal favorites:

In no particular order:

The One
Thirteenth Floor
The Matrix
Event Horizon
FreeJack
Aliens
Predator
Terminator 1,2
The Abyss
Minority Report
Gattaca
Chronicals of Riddick


id be interested in some recommendations .. any good SciFi imports ?

I'm surprised you named that. I quite enjoyed The One, it was a short fun action flick. People tend to compare it with Jet Li's other films and look down on it though.

While both 2001: a space odyssey and Star Wars are visually stunning and musically-inspiring films, 2001 wins. Why?
1. Star Wars is pure fantasy. 2001 was a realistic/could-happen depiction of the future (from 1968's POV).
2. In Star Wars, aliens were a dime-a-dozen (ho-hum). 2001 still depicts the most realistic version of a First Contact--you never even see the aliens, allowing the viewer's imagination to step in.
3. Overall, Star Wars presents as simpler and childlike (Not childish), which no doubt accounts for much of its popularity...it's basically easier to grasp. 2001 requires more intelligence to understand, thus adding to its mystery and realism.
When Star Wars grows up, it'll be 2001 (no offense to SW fans).

If you count Star Wars then duh...I personally think Star wars is more fantasy than SciFi. If you're not counting SW, then...

1. Matrix
2. Terminator 2
3. I, Robot
4. Terminator 1
5. Chronicles of Riddick

You move to an area and you multiply, and multiply until every natural resource is consumed. And the only way you can survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what it is? A virus. Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet. You are a plague, and we...are the cure.

I have an affinity to Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. (But of course you'll could probably tell that by my sig). I think it's the best of all the Star Trek's, and one of the best Sci-Fi film's ever made. Great story, great acting, a great villain, and a theme that hits very close to home. It was absolutely beautiful how they made a topic like the cold war, and everything it entails, fit so perfectly within the star trek universe.
