I watched Limitless the other night. This could be described as an SF film and I could imagine Philip K **** having written it.

edit. I cannot believe that the name of the author behind "Do Androids Dream" has had his name hidden in asterisks. Just think of the contraction of the name Richard as in 'RichardHead'.

We are forgetting a movie called Hardware (Lemmie is in it).

There is also an old classic called "Silent Running" and is the movie that indfluenced the premise in Mystery Science Theater 3000.

The Lexx series - 4 movies and 4 seasons - sci fi that is so bad, it's good. Rutger Hauer is in the third movie.

Forgot to mention another Andrey Tarkovskiy's classic:

Clockwork Orange.

Oh, wow... Although that film is controversial and works well with some critics, I must say that it's beyond my taste (and it don't have real SF in it). Don't get me wrong, I'm not scared of movies that use unconventional methods to show what the author wanted us to see. Take "No country for old men" for example, or "Requiem for a dream" (both not SF btw) - I liked those two. Clockwork Orange, on the other hand, is just not my cup of tea.

Didn't you know there are no good science fiction any more? Inception was pretty amazing I have to admit but that was a diamond in the rough.

Only good ones I can think of are oldish; Sphere, Blade Runner, etc. 2001 is obviously the best film ever made...

Cowboys VS. Aliens? Lol, Sci-Fi is dead...

Sunshine has been mentioned, parts of the film are pretty generic but it does have some profound moments and the sound track is really special, its even been recycled by several newer films and TV series.

I'll bite:

eternal sunshine of the spotless mind


source code

avatar extended cut (yes, I know, the extra 17 m in front does help flesh things out in a much better way though)

the last few years don't stand out as being overly kind to sci fi as I recall at this moment. you might want to step back in time a few more years and hit or rehit some classics.

I've been looking in this thread as well for movies and I gotta say eternal sunshine of the spotless mind is one extremely beautiful movie. Just everything about it is perfect.
Thank you!
