This Labor Day I am hosting the first annual Science Fiction Marathon. Well, it is not much of a party since it is only myself in the basement, but perhaps next year a few friends may be invited over. Anyway, I thought rather hard on what the play list should be and I have come to the list below as the 10 Greatest science-fiction movies of all time.
The following list is in order; do you agree? What would you have added or deleted? My idea of science-fiction may also extend to fantasy as well, so perhaps it is more of a list of speculative fiction than the pure hardcore science-fiction that others think of.
List of the 10 Greatest Science-Fiction (Fantasy) movies of all time:
1. Star Wars (collectively but truly the first movie)
3. Lord of the Rings (again the entire trilogy but unlike Star Wars each movie is great)
4. Jurassic Park
5. Star Trek (the entire franchise but specifically the 2nd and 3rd)
6. The Thing (1951 version)
8. Aliens (Actually the 2nd movie in the series topped the first)
9. Planet of the Apes (All the quirky original movies not necessarily modern creations)
Runners Up: Robinson Crusoe on Mars, Conan the Barbarian, Legend, Forbidden Planet, Close Encounters, and 2001 Space Odyssey.
