Last month, the American Film Institute announced that it will be compiling a list of the 100 best genre movies ever made. The list will be broken up into separate Top 10 lists for each genre.
I’m going to do my best to put together as many of my own lists as I can, but I thought I’d start with my list of the 10 Best Sci-Fi Movies. Since people have different definitions of what “science fiction” is, I’ll use the AFI’s definition, which you can find here.
Here’s my Top 10 list (in no particular order):
2. Empire Strikes Back
3. Escape From New York
4. Blade Runner
5. The Day the Earth Stood Still
6. The Fly (1986)
7. Terminator 2: Judgement Day
10. Star Trek: First Contact
