Cinema exists to project our dreams. Science-fiction cinema exists to project our most creative dreams—time-travel, alternate worlds, expanded consciousness, and more. That's why we're science-fiction maniacs and why we gathered up our top 100 movies. And if your favorite isn't on here, we want to hear about it. http://www.popularmechanics.com/technolo...ies-of-all-time
For me it comes down to expectations of what a Sci-Fi movie is meant to be, most seem to be more cheezy b grade stuff which seem to gather a cult following. Starship Troopers is very typical of what I expect from Sci-Fi film.
A lot of stuff I have not seen and unfortunately a lot of stuff I have seen.
For me the biggest impacting one was terminator but Alien was very close. As for for my personal favourites it has to be Blade Runner.
I question the definition of Sci-Fi, short for Science Fiction. Since it contains the reference to "Science", shouldn't the genre of these movies involve Science or Technology in some form or other? Why not call the ones not related to Science, Future Fiction or Fu-Fi? While we’re at it, what about Tobor the Great, Flash Gordan, and The Man With Two Brains?

Everyone makes these lists every few years and adjusts many of the movies to some recents ones and ones many agree are "classics" then throw in a few to get a discussion going. While "Top Lists" were cool when I was out drinking in my 20's they kind of bore me now.
