The movie list

Filed under: — Joe @ 7:55 am

Aw, what the hell. Everyone else is trying it, and it is fun, so I’m going to give it a shot, too. John Scalzi’s Rough Guide to Sci Fi Movies includes these fifty, and folks are doing the “bold the ones you’ve seen” thing (it gets done with a lot of lists, and I usually avoid joining in). I felt left out! So I’m joining in, too.

Here we go….

The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension!

Back to the Future
Blade Runner
Bride of Frankenstein
Brother From Another Planet
A Clockwork Orange
Close Encounters of the Third Kind
The Damned
Destination Moon
The Day The Earth Stood Still

Escape From New York
ET: The Extraterrestrial

Flash Gordon: Space Soldiers (serial)
The Fly (1985 version)
Forbidden Planet

Ghost in the Shell
The Incredibles
Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956 version)
Jurassic Park
Mad Max 2/The Road Warrior
The Matrix
On the Beach
Planet of the Apes (1968 version)

Solaris (1972 version)
Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan
Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope
Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back

Seems like there aren’t many I’ve missed. Might be a good idea to have a movie festival some weekend soon! 🙂


  1. Hi Joe,

    I love your list of Sci-Fi’s. My all time fav would have to be “Contact”.

    Stay safe,

  3. Joe,

    Yes, it has. I have been very busy working and studying. I will bring it all back up to speed next Wednesday.

    How are you?
