Spencer’s Top-10 Sci-Fi Movies

Posted on Mar 22, 2013 by in Sci-Fi, Top 10 |


I think we all love top-ten lists, but there’s an inherent stress in making them.  What do I leave out?  Did I make the right choice?  We swap one movie out for another, negotiate with ourselves over and over again until we can’t take it anymore, and then we call it done.

In the end, I think these lists just help us take impossibly vast things and make them more manageable for our tiny brains.  So here’s my list, and later I’ll add why these make the cut.

  1. Blade Runner  
  2. The Thing
  3. A Scanner Darkly
  4. Alien
  5. Solaris
  6. The Fifth Element
  7. Outland
  8. On the Beach
  9. Star Wars (You know the one I’m talking about)
  10. 2001 A Space Odyssey
