Nine Awesome Science Fiction Movies

My husband and I love movies. We  especially love science fiction movies so I decided to make a new list of  science fiction movies that we can watch over and over again.  Though Aliens is on the top because its my favorite, the rest are not in any real order.

1) Aliens 1986 : The planet from Alien has been colonized and unfortunately space marines are not enough, but don’t worry, they got Ripley.

2) Alien 1979 : A mining ship investigates an SOS and discovers a strange organism, but Ian Holm steals the movie when he tries to suffocate Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) with a rolled up magazine.

3) Predators 2010 : A bunch of elite warriors are dropped off on another planet to be hunted. A terrific “sequel” to Predator.

4) The Thing 1982 : Kurt Russell’s best movie. Scientists who happen to have a few flame throwers confront a shape shifting alien in Antarctica.

5) Total Recall 1990 Arnold Schwarzenegger dreams of mars, he goes on a virtual vacation and discovers he is a spy, or maybe not.

6) AVP (Aliens versus Predator) 2004 : Okay, I admit this was movie panned, but I watch it all the time. Remote location. Aliens. Predators. Strong Female lead. Sexy Italian guy, goofy Scottish guy and a bunch of other forgettable alien fodder–opps I mean humans. Really, what more can you ask for in this type of film?

7) Invasion of the Body Snatchers 1978 : Donal Sutherland, Brooke Adams, Veronica Cartwright and Jeff Goldbloom discover the human race is being replaced with pod people devoid of emotion. Leonard Nimoy is really good as a cloned psychiatrist.

8) The Day the Earth Caught Fire 1961 : British reporters learn the Earth has been knocked out of orbit due to atomic bomb testing. This film does a good mixing of characters and epic destruction.

9) When Worlds Collide 1951 :  David Randall lives to see the day that he literally has money to burn when a star and its planet head toward Earth.  Humans frantically work to complete the rocket which will take them to their new home Zyra.

What are you favorites?

    • Thanks for commenting Michelle,

      I bet if Dennis (also referred to as my husband) made the list, he’d put Starwars (New Hope, Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, In his mind, the prequels don’t exist.) on it too. Which of the six, do you like? Or would it be a very long Starwars marathon which would include the Christmas Special?


      • Ha! Is that the one with the Ewoks? Because I totally saw that.

        I love the original series, and the new ones … meh. I thought Revenge of the Sith (or whatever it was called) was pretty good, with the second one being so-so, and the first one just awful. Although I did like Darth Maul.

        Also, your husband has excellent taste.

      • The Christmas Special was a story about Chewie and Han going to Chewies House to celebrate Life Day, but the ones you are thinking about are two Ewok made for TV movies. The Caravan of Courage and Battle for Endor which revolved around a cute little blonde girl and Wicket. I haven’t seen those since I was a kid, but I have fond memories since I was just at the right age when Return of the Jedi came out to enjoy the presence of Ewoks.
