    Empire Strikes Back the film of my youth
    Predator would have been a kick butt movie even without the Predator in it, awesome cast
    Aliens kicked up the originals action up two notches
    Planet of the Apes (the original 5 as a set)
    Godzilla King of the Monsters (2019) I really liked this one
    Honorable Mention:
    Avengers: Endgame I guess this is considered Sci-fi my not being sure of that is why it is an honorable mention

    There came a time when the Old Gods died! The Brave died with the Cunning! The Noble perished locked in battle with unleashed Evil! It was the last day for them! An ancient era was passing in fiery holocaust!

    It's more sci-fi than Empire Strikes Back anyway.

    I consider most comic book movies more urban fantasy than sci fi so I'm excluding them with one obvious exception that will be obvious on my list but even though its from the comics its obviously sci fi. I know I'm probably forgetting something but these are the ones that first jump into my head. Serenity is easily my #1 and I say that as someone who hadn't even seen Firefly yet when I first saw Serenity. It was such a perfect movie and utterly accessible even to those like me who hadn't seen Firefly yet.

    Serenity
    Star Wars
    Guardians of the Galaxy
    Aliens
    Matrix

    I know the superhero genre has a lot of Sci-Fi elements in it, but I consider it its own genre. I also don't count Star Wars and Doctor Who as pure Sci-Fi. They are Science-Fantasy, imo.

    It's probably better to make it a list of speculative fiction movies if you want to avoid interpretation.

    It's ok. I just wanted to see people's choices and what's more popular. It doesn't really matter if it's not exactly what I think.

    I don't count Star Wars as they're more Science Fantasy than Sci-fi. Anyway:

    -Star Trek Ii: The Wrath of Khan.
    -The Terminator and Terminator 2 (I cannot decide between the two).
    -Blade Runner.
    -John Carpenter's The Thing.
    -Alien and Aliens (again cannot decide between them).
