While some sci-fi flicks are destined to become blockbusters, other equally deserving films often linger unloved on Netflix or gather dust on the shelves before they gain a cult following. Maybe they received poor initial reviews, or perhaps they suffered from a limited or low-key theatrical release. Whatever the reason, they all deserve a second look from true science fiction fans. Here are some of the most underrated sci-fi films of the last 15 years…

    Earth 2 was a brilliant idea . Wish the main character had met her mirror image earlier in the film. Should have played up the sci-fi aspwct more. Still some story to tell in this scenaeio.

    Nothing against the video, but the thing I hate about these lists is 90% of the time I've already seen them all.

    This is when I truly miss my local blockbuster….the VOD fees are way too high vs the old standard .99, 5 day rental at blockbuster…and Netflix is a hit or miss with most titles..

    They tried to jump-start the sun by sending a giant nuke at it? Unless it's the size of Saturn, I don't see how that could help.

    There was a movie where a comet or asteroid slammed into the moon putting it's orbit on a crash course with earth i believe. Older low budget movie. Sound familiar anybody?

    Tron Legacy and Oblivion were two of the most aesthetically pleasing sci-fi films I've ever experienced. Storytelling not too shabby either

    Predestination will throw of your chair in the end. It's one of the smartest film I have seen.

    Can I just point out for Sunshine, great movie by the way, perpetuates a huge fallacy. The Sun IS NOT YELLOW, YELLOW/ORANGE!!! It IS WHITE!!!

    Moon is soooooo underrated as is Sam Worthington. Equilibrium is amazing. Christian Bale is a total kick ass, fascinating twist on a familiar story. Predestination was intriguing. Snowpiercier was a big surprise!
