    Crappy list. Everyone knows Clockwork Orange should be #1. And not even a nod to 2001; A Space Odyssey.

    Bladerunner is a masterpiece. What about 1974's The terminal man?

    I guess "The Crow" would be considered fantasy?

    Tank Girl and Cherry 2000 could have made this list easy also 🙂 Both were flops at first but now have a following and 2 of my Favorites!!

    Dear WatchMojo,

    do you know what the "Sci" in Sci-Fi stands for? This list is full of shit that might have cult followings but ISNT SCIENCE FICTION!

    About Dark City: wasn't what the video says about the movie A MASSIVE F*CKING SPOILER OF THE ENTIRE PURPOSE OF THAT MOVIE!!!!???? If you havent't seen it yet, don't watch this video, it gves away the plot twist in the ending.
