Great Britain's Guardian conducted a poll and a survey of some of the world's leading scientists and created what I consider to be the single most erudite listing of the all-time best SF films along with brilliant commentary. My personal favorite was #8, the original War of the Worlds, which I saw when I was nine. It inspired a year's worth of "aliens are here" nightmares and a lifetime of science fiction addiction. There were a few surprises in the voting, including the 1972 Solaris. The runnaway favorite was Ridley Scott's Blade Runner. Posted by Jason McManus.
