Just a couple of thoughts.....

Where is DARK CITY?  Director's Cut is a masterpiece!

Donnie Darko?  It's been a loooong time since I've seen it, but I don't remember it being scifi.

Guardians of the Galaxy?  I mean yeah it's scifi, but really?

Metropolis.....YES, YES and YES!  Glad to see it getting it's recognition.

I haven't seen 5 of them: High Life, Children Of Men, Invasion Of The Body Snatchers (1978), Under The Skin (2013) and Sunshine. I've got 'High Life' on my "watch-next" pile because I really want to watch some Claire Denis films. I've got the blu-rays of 'Children of Men' and 'Invasion Of The Body Snatchers (1978)' still in their cellophane on my "watch at some point?" shelf Big Grin .

Some random ones I might include: Star man, Threads, Star Gate, 5th Element, Total Recall, Babylon 5: In the Beginning, The Incredible Shrinking Man, Things to Come, Steamboy, Dune, Dredd and 2 or 3 Mad Max films.

Yes! How could Empire ignore Dune (1984) and The Fifth Element (1997)

Once again, I agree given the films on the list. They clearly are loose with the term sci fi, but Dune and the Fifth Element fall into the fantasy/myth realm for me and aren’t what I’d, personally, call sci fi.

Well I’m old. Smile I just recently watched Stalker for the second time. I’ve seen Arrival at least three times. I liked High Life, but I don’t know if it would make my list. It’s probably the boldest choice on this list though.
