Best sci-fi movies of all time

We’ve put together a list of the best sci-fi movies so you can make sure you’ve seen the best the genre has to offer. From battles with grizzly alien beasts, to somber tales of isolation and musings on what it means to be human, our list covers every corner of the sci-fi genre.

It’s almost unfair to call sci-fi a genre, given that you can fit basically every other genre of movie into a sci-fi movie. We’ve had romantic comedies, action movies, thrillers, horrors, and more in a sci-fi setting. But sci-fi is often more than a futuristic setting and some glowing lights. It’s about exploring the unknown, and taking the viewer along on a journey of discovery.
