Discuss! For starters, I'll say that 1982 was a freaking awesome year for sci-fi movies. And naturally, some omissions of note: Back To The Future (1985): I'll take this movie any day over E.T., Galaxy Quest, or that snooze-inducing, mind-blowingly confusing 2001: Space Odyssey. Serenity (2005): A modern classic. 'Nuff said. The Fifth Element (1997): Original, unique, and funny, with a really great cast, CGI, and SFX. Dark City (1998): Refreshingly original, epicly entertaining, and captivating. Many layers in this film too that warrant repeat viewings. Transformers: The Movie (1984): What, are you kidding me? Of course it's not one of the top 25 Sci-Fi Movies. I may love the crap out of it, but even I wouldn't rank it with these classics.
