I fixed it and edited it. But I left your original because it was funny.

Star Trek Motion Picture

2001

2010

The Last Star Fighter

Yor: The hunter from the future (the film was actually a tv series spanning several weeks, and was heavily edited into 2 hours....had the entire run been shown, it would have gotten a lot less flak)

The Day the Eath Stood Still

Close Encounters of the Third Kind

Robocop

Robocop 2

War of the Worlds

Battle Beyond the Stars

Flash Gorden

The Fith Element

The Black Hole

I might add more later, since I picked up one of those mega deal packs Mills Creeks often put out, and this one's a set of 50 science fiction films, oldest being from 1934 and the latest 1991 afro alien

District 9!!!! I love the harshness of the story, and the theme of redemption that permeates the film. It is a sad, sad story, but nonetheless twinged with hope.

I enjoyed Avatar just for the pure escapism of it. Sure, we've seen the story before. But seeing it in 3d in the theater was an EVENT the way few films lately have been IMO.

Terminator films: ALL 4 of them.
Predator films: ALL 3 of them.
Alien films: 1-4.

NOT the AVP movies.

Hanger 18, I think that's the title, is a good one, especially if you are into UFOlogy like myself.

Man, I haven't seen that in years! I slightly remember going to the theater to see that...Darren "Kolchak" McGavin was in it as well...it's actually in my Netflix queue to revisit.
