    The Empire strikes back number one ????????????? Are you kidding ??? It is by far my favourite Star Wars movie but come on……………… It is not even a SF movie…just fiction ! and not to put Blade Runner in the list (number 2 for me) is an ……..heresy. Jurassic park is just a funny childish movie.

    This narrator has the most annoying voice. By the way, "Evolution" is pronounced as in "Eden".

    o my gosh, Star Wars is Not science-fiction. It's Space fantasy.

    The "Time Machine", "War of the Worlds", The Day the Earth Stood Still" … yet no mention of "Forbidden Planet"? That movie was one of the most scientifically involved Science Fiction films of all time.

    Anyone who's seen the 1950's science fiction serials has seen Star Wars a million times, except in black and white.

    OMG…do you not even know how much Star Wars owes to "2001?" Your list fails for not having 2001 first, and it ain't even close.
