The Best Sci-Fi Movies of All Time

Arrow

Alien (1979)

Alien is considered the magnum opus of Ridley Scott, who has been termed as one of the greatest directors to grace cinema because he merged two genres in, horror and sci-fi to create a movie that remains at the top of films involving extra-terrestrials.

Jurassic Park (1993)

"Teeth, teeth, and more teeth" - That was the motto of Steven Spielberg's epic adventure movie involving dinosaurs, and it worked as fans continue to be amazed by Jurassic Park and the sequels that spawned off it.

Robocop (1987)

A rogue cyborg policeman who's out for revenge - That's basically what Robocop is, in short. But deep down, this movie put a lens in front of society for viewers to think differently about culture and politics in a way that most sci-fi films find hard to grasp.

Blade Runner

While Ridley Scott introduced horror elements to Alien, Blade Runner goes oppositely, as the director showcased a dystopian space drama that feels neon yet noir with a detective story at the center of it.

Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980)

We have all seen the iconic scene of Darth Vader revealing to Luke Skywalker that he is indeed his father, and that is just one of many scenes that make Episode V iconic. 

Terminator 2: Judgement Day (1991)

We have all seen the iconic scene of Darth Vader revealing to Luke Skywalker that he is indeed his father, and that is just one of many scenes that make Episode V iconic. 

Back to the Future (1985)

We have all seen the iconic scene of Darth Vader revealing to Luke Skywalker that he is indeed his father, and that is just one of many scenes that make Episode V iconic. 

Inception (2010)

Christopher Nolan cemented his legacy as a Hollywood great with his mind-bending story involving dream thieves, aided by standout performances from Leonardo Di Caprio, Tom Hardy, and more. 

The Matrix (1999)

Bullet Time is one of The Matrix's most memorable scenes. However, the personal story of Neo becoming The One has made this movie one of the most remarkable pieces of sci-fi media.
