    1. Star Wars/ANH
    2.ESB
    3.ROTJ
    4.THEM!
    5.ALIENS
    6.Blade Runner

    I decided to leave out Star Wars movies to open up three spots for something else :D.

    1. Ghostbusters - Perfect blend of humor and action
    2. Back to the future - Just about darned perfect
    3. Star Trek II: The wrath of Khan - Best thing to ever carry the Star Trek name IMO.
    4. The last Starfighter - Clunky action (Do to technological limits) overcome by great performances, writing and fantastic score
    5. Krull - Star Wars/Lord of the Rings wannabe is the kind of unpretentious, old fashioned adventure movie Hollywood doesn't make anymore
    6. Tron - I was underwhelmed as a kid, but I get it now... sort of
    7. The Terminator - Ah-nold!
    8. Forbidden planet - 50's classic with pre Naked Gun Leslie Nielsen
    9. Stargate - Unlike most, I like the movie and not the TV show. Great score too
    10. Predator - (AKA "The future Governors club") Ah-nold again!

    1. Star Wars Saga
    2.Enemy Mine
    3. Aliens
    4. Alien
    5.Blade Runner
    6.The Predator
    7. The Wrath of Kahn
    8. Flash Gordon(80's cheese at its finest)

    Note: 2-10 aren't in any particular order, that's just the way they came out of my head. The first two Terminator films, any incarnation of the Dune series, Event Horizon,Krull, 2001, Star Trek 3,4,6 and First Contact, Stargate, and Total Recall are among my Sci-Fi favorites as well

    I never liked any form or incarnation of the Planet of the Apes. It's one of the few things in the world(film or anything else) that distrubs me and gets under my skin.

    I've seen all of them and the first of the original series is really good, but I ******* hate the Planet of the Apes.

    I can't believe I forgot The Last Starfighter. It's only one of my favorite movies ever. I have to leave out Star Trek VI, and replace it with TLS. Great film and one of the very first to use CGI. Very ahead of it's time.

    1) The Matrix
    2) Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back
    3) The Matrix Reloaded
    4) The Matrix Revolutions
    5) Star Wars: A New Hope
    6) Serenity
    7) Superman
    8) Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan
    9) Alien or Superman II
    10) Aliens or Superman Returns

    Number 9 and 10 depend on whether I am in a cynical and dark mood or a "happy, happy, joy, joy" mood.

    There are so many other good sci-fi flicks like the other Star Wars films, the Spider-Man and X-men films, Jurassic Park, Planet of the Apes, etc which makes this a hard list to compose, but I think, at this point in my life, these are my top ten choices.
