    "They Live" didn't make the list? I call shenanigans!

    As a massive fan of Philip K Dick's stories I would have shoehorned Imposter and Screamers in there as well, just for the hell of it ;) I probably would have had Dune also, it's flawed as hell and I understand why many people can't stand it, but I love it

    I genuinely find Blade Runner unwatchable. I've tried twice to sit through it and got so turned off by the nasty/grim 80s visuals I couldn't survive. I know I'm not alone, either, as it's been plenty divisive for a lot of critics. Still, guess I should try again...

    If you don't like it, you don't like it. I love it and the novel it's (loosely) based on but there's no point forcing yourself to watch something just because you feel you should, films, like games and any other media are subjective and down to individual taste.

    Thank you for the diplomatic reply. Phew, it's getting so that GR and kotaku are the only places a commenter feels safe anymore on this internet.

    No worries, I feel it's important to show that not everyone on the internet is a complete cock-womble with an over-inflated sense of self-importance ;)

    No Children of Men make this list an epic FAIL. I also would've included Never Let Me Go

    THANK YOU for including Moon!

    I freaking loved the article, all of these movie/tv ones are coming along fantaticly!! So, that being said, I can't help but see a distinct lack of 'Event Horizon'... ;J Also, how was 'A Clockwork Orange' a sci-fi movie?
  • Fran_Halen - November 7, 2014 5:49 p.m.

    I agree with you on "A Clockwork Orange". Maybe they think because it was set in the future it's sci-fi.
  • alex-roy-bristol - November 9, 2014 11:12 p.m.

    I guess, or maybe the use of the brain-washing stuff. More of pseudoscience, but yeah

    No Star Trek II?

    --some of those are a tad bit too old(why not just include some 1920s-30s radio programs?~ya know?) --ive seen almost every movie on this list(who hasnt) --but --im proud of the fact --that i have ALWAYS avoided watching Avatar(and i always will) --i watched a decent little sci-fi movie last week --it was called "Under the Skin" --i dont know if it belongs in a 'greatest of all time' list --but --its a must see for sci-fi fanatics(who know anything about cinematics)
  • usmovers_02 - November 5, 2014 5:48 p.m.

    You should seriously reconsider your stance on Avatar. It's not the shallow action flick so many have portrayed it as. It's actually incredibly deep and absolutely worth the watch.
  • _--_ - November 5, 2014 11:04 p.m.

    --watch Under the Skin --i promise you shan't be disappointed --but --just watch it without studying it --dont even read whos in it --imo? --a minor league cinematic scifi masterpiece --understand it has its flaws --but 'take it in' --let it be --what IT is --its a pretty damn cool flick

    Donald Sutherland wasn't in the Kevin McCarthy Body Snatchers, you've got the wrong picture, or the wrong year. Huh, I've seen all of these. I don't agree with a lot at the top, especially Avatar.
  • usmovers_02 - November 5, 2014 5:49 p.m.

    I also disagree with Avatar but probably for the opposite reason as you :P I consider Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind to be the 2nd greatest movie of all time and Avatar simply makes it look bad :P

    I would personally put Akira way higher and include Ghost in the Shell, but hey, I'm a huge Otaku. Otherwise, I now have plenty more things to watch.
  • winner2 - November 7, 2014 12:55 p.m.

    I agree with both of those points. Ghost in the Shell in particular is amazing. Loved it so much I have to say I'm really apprehensive of the new reboot they're doing of it.
