    List of Science Fiction Films

    Favs/dislikes: 54:1. This is a list of science-fiction films organized chronologically. These films have been released to a cinema audience by the commercial film industry and are widely distributed with reviews by reputable critics. This includes silent film–era releases, serial films, and feature-length films. All of the films include core elements of science fiction, but can cross into other genres such as drama, mystery, action, horror, fantasy, and comedy. Among the listed movies are films that have won motion-picture and science-fiction awards as well as films that have been listed among the worst movies ever made, or have won one or more Golden Raspberry Awards. This list also contains additional sci-fi films that were missing from wikipedia's list. This list is useful if looking for a sci-fi film that is on an official icm list. Just sort the list by number of official lists.
  2. Fantastic Cinema (Peter Nicholls)  700 fantasy/horror/sci-fi films's icon

    Fantastic Cinema (Peter Nicholls) 700 fantasy/horror/sci-fi films

    Favs/dislikes: 28:0. This extensive appendix in Nicholl's book lists 700 fantasy/horror/sci-fi films,1902-1983. Note that it is not a 'best of' list. While some films are must-see classics, others are z-grade junk - there's even a few TV-movies in the mix. Nicholls may be academic but he's no snob - like Danny Peary, he believes in seeing all types of movies. Most of these appended films are reviewed in capsules (the others have already been discussed in more detail in the main body of the book). He gives titles a dual rating, one for quality (stars) and another for squeamishness (skulls). Interestingly, Nicholls embraces a broad range of movies in his critique, including the James Bond series (because of its sci-fi overtones with gadgetry, supervillians, etc) and films with a surreal, psychological, or dreamlike approach. You'd have to be a true film fan to watch the wide range of titles here - everything from Monty Python and the Muppets to Russian silent films and Italian zombie gore.
  3. Science Fiction Cinema: Between Fantasy and Reality's icon

    Science Fiction Cinema: Between Fantasy and Reality

    Favs/dislikes: 6:0. All movies from the Films Cited section in the book [url=http://www.amazon.com/Science-Fiction-Cinema-Between-Fantasy/dp/0813541735?tag=viglink20340-20]Science Fiction Cinema: Between Fantasy and Reality[/url], written by Christine Cornea. "From E.T. the Extraterrestrial and Back to the Future to Blade Runner and Alien, science fiction films have been achieving blockbuster status for decades. Moreover, some major studio releases, such as Star Wars, The Matrix, and 2001: A Space Odyssey, as well as many low-budget films have become etched in film history as international cult classics. Offering a broad historical and theoretical reassessment of this popular genre, Christine Cornea explores the development of science fiction in cinema from its very beginnings to the present day. Each chapter offers analyses of particular films, situating them within a wider historical/cultural context while also highlighting a specific key thematic issue. Cornea provides vital and unique perspectives on the genre, including discussions of the relevance of psychedelic imagery, race, the "new woman of science," generic performance, and the prevalence of "techno-orientalism" in recent films. Enriching the book are new interviews with some of the main practitioners in the field, such as Roland Emmerich, Paul Verhoeven, Ken Russell, Stan Winston, William Gibson, Brian Aldiss, Joe Morton, Dean Norris, and Billy Gray. While American films are Cornea's main focus, she also engages with a range of pertinent examples from other countries and explains why science fiction lends itself well to transnational reception."

  6. The 250 Best Science Fiction Movies of All Time's icon

    The 250 Best Science Fiction Movies of All Time

    Favs/dislikes: 10:0. A list of the science fiction movies I appreciate the most. Obscure or polarizing features get the same attention as cinema classics, and tones are mixed, with upbeat movies sharing space with those that have a darker tone. Similarly, there's an equal representation of stories that are mainly emotionally engaging and those more intellectually stimulating. Here are my guidelines, which you can skip, unless you feel I have some explaining to do.... Those ranked from 1-50, I've rated 10 or 9 (I believe in generosity!). My rating of most of the other movies here tends to be 8, though around 50 entries at the bottom have a lower rating, though none lower than 6. Also, only 1-100 are carefully arranged according to how highly I hold them. After that, titles appear in a rough ranking order. The list contains no animated or non-English movies, as I've seen too few of those to give them a fair inclusion. Nor does it include comedies or titles which arguably belong to other genres, such as fantasy, horror or superhero movies. To give prominence to diversity, the list only includes the best installment of each franchise, representing the series as a whole, and to give more room to original ideas, only unique remakes and reboot films qualify. American Film Institute (AFI) defines science fiction as “a genre that marries a scientific or technological premise with imaginative speculation.” I'd like to add that the genre deals with hypothetical yet scientifically possible events that humanity so far hasn’t experienced, for example the event shown in Gravity, or technology used in ways that yet hasn't happened, such as in The Martian. Also, the definition requires that a scientific explanation is presented for what takes place within the frame of a story. Hence, stories dealing with magic or other supernatural elements can be ruled out.

  17. OFCS Top 100: Top 100 Sci-Fi Films's icon

    OFCS Top 100: Top 100 Sci-Fi Films

    Favs/dislikes: 20:0. The OFCS Top 100 Top Sci-Fi Films was announced in 2002. June 12, 2002: The Online Film Critics Society (OFCS), the international association of the leading Internet-based cinema journalists, is celebrating the first century of science fiction filmmaking with a list of the Top 100 Sci-Fi Films of the Past 100 Years. At the top of the list, according to the 115 members of the OFCS, is Stanley Kubrick's cryptic 1968 masterpiece 2001: A Space Odyssey. Beginning with Georges Melies' 1902 fantasy A Trip to the Moon and continuing through this summer's top releases including Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones and the upcoming Minority Report, sci-fi has proven to be among the most durable and prescient of film genres. In celebrating a century of sci-fi films, the OFCS writers considered more than 400 titles spanning every decade and a variety of formats ranging from short subjects to animation to classics of global cinema. In polling the OFCS membership for this survey, the society invited its members to provide their choices for the century's greatest sci-fi offerings. "It's very interesting to see what a broad spectrum of films can be considered science fiction," says Erik Childress, editor of eFilmCritic.com and a member of the OFCS Governing Committee. "By letting our members vote with their own thoughts instead of tying them down with an absolute final ballot AFI-style, you get to see a wide array of titles that many, including myself, wouldn't even consider science-fiction (like Dr. Strangelove or Night of the Living Dead)."
