Top five Sci- Fi movies of all time

Compiled by Jessica Broverman, Editor

5) The Terminator Series

The creators of The Terminator have been producing this box office plot for over thirty years. Actors ranging from Arnold Schwarzenegger, to Game of Thrones Emilia Clarke, and even Christian Bale, these films have had their far share of stars. From protecting the mother of a future leader to protecting the human race, The Terminator films have grown to much larger heights. The most recent movie “Terminator: Genisys” will be released in July of this year and will bring back Schwarzenegger once more.

 4) Alien

Though this film came out in the mid 70’s, it still has the tendency to make your skin crawl. While most alien based movies are focused on earth and aliens invading it, this movie takes place in space. Thus, creating the phrase, “In space no one can hear you scream”.  Watching the trailer for this film can easily make anyone feel on edge. This is one of those films in which many attempt to top, but have not quite mastered what it is that makes this movie so eerie.

 3) The Matrix Trilogy

Most of us can recall this movie coming out while we were in elementary and begging our parents to let us see it. The battle for the free mind becomes the ultimate fight between opposing sides. Taking a person out of his normal routine and showing him life with the blinds taken off opens a whole new realm for lead character Neo. The gift that this film brings is that it has no time frame to which you can place it. Yes, it came out in the 1990’s, but it has twenty-first century appeal.

 2) E.T The Extra Terrestrial

Probably one of the most heartfelt of all the sci-fi films in history. This story is a true tale of friendship between two very unlikely beings. E.T. has made its way into home since its release in 1982 and has been remastered and updated more than twenty years later. This film is a family favorite and is sure to bring a tear to even the most unlikely of people.

 1) Star Wars

At the top of the list we have one if not the greatest and most beloved sci-fi films of all time. Conventions and memorabilia have been dedicated solely to the multiple films within the Star Wars realm. This 45-year-old classic has won over 15 awards, which include six Academy Awards and a Golden Globe. To find out in what order you should watch the Star Wars movie, you can follow this link.
