VOTE: Best Sci-Fi Films of All Time

Science fiction is one of my favourite genres, and I thought it'd be fun to have a community vote to find the best loved sci-fi films on the site.

In the comments below, vote for up to 10 sci-fi films. 1 point goes to each film you pick, and you don't have to rank your selections. What counts as science fiction is up to you, and I'll only question particularly unusual picks. Films don't have to already be on the list, you're welcome to induct new entries.

You can change your votes at a later time if you want.

The list is sorted by points, then alphabetically by film name.

Other votes I run: Directors | Comedy Films | Romance Films
