One Hundred Greatest Sci-Fi MoviesPosted by T'Bonz - 04/08/09 at 03:08 am
A list with the top hundred greatest sci-fi movies includes three Star Trek offerings.
As reported by Total Sci-Fi Online, movies on the list include a movie made back in 1902 as well as modern-day offerings such as Star Trek XI.
The top five science-fiction movies are: Blade Runner, 2001:A Space Odyssey, Star Wars, Alien and Metropolis (released in 1927.)
Three Star Trek movies made the list of top one hundred movies. At number nineteen was Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. “The best Trek movie by miles, this is an edgy, exciting and often very funny movie that feels much more than an extended TV episode. The makers even had the guts to kill Spock! OK, so they did bring him back in the next one…”
At number sixty-seven was Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. “The second-best Trek movie is also directed by Nicholas Meyer. This one’s a thrilling, funny conspiracy thriller that sees the aging Starfleet heroes attempt to avert intergalactic war. Hugely enjoyable.”
Finally, barely making the list at number ninety-three was Star Trek XI. “J.J. Abrams pulled off the not inconsiderable challenge of making Star Trek popular again – even cool – in a film that manages to appeal to Trekkers and newbies alike. Thrilling action sequences, charming performances, sex appeal and unobtrusive in-jokes.”
