Cool Science Fiction (Sci-Fi) Movies

By: Yollie and Dan Bunag


We love science fiction (sci-fi) movies, well, at least the good ones since there are several of them made throughout the years. We're also Startrek and Stargate fans.

Within the sci-fi movies genre, there are actions, adventures, thrillers, aliens, fantasies, dramas, martial arts, foreign, supernatural, even horror. So there's a variety to choose from.

One of our favorite past times is watching movies, both at the theater and at home; well mostly DVDs or streaming services at home since it's more economical that way. This hub is about sci-fi movies we love or like a lot. The list is a work in progress and in no specific order.

E.T. - The Extra-Terrestrial (1982)

Starring: Henry Thomas, Drew Barrymore, Director: Steven Spielberg, Rating: PG

Steven Spielberg's 1982 smash hit tells the heartwarming story of the special bond 10-year-old Elliot (Henry Thomas) forges with an alien he names E.T. The adventures they share as Elliot tries to hide his new friend and E.T. tries to get back to his planet ("E.T. phone home!") provide plenty of action, laughter and tears.

Back to the Future (1985)

Starring: Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Director: Robert Zemeckis, Rating: PG

Eccentric inventor Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd) turns a DeLorean into a time machine that inadvertently sends his young friend Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) back to 1955. Not only is Marty stuck in the past, but he also risks throwing the time-space continuum for a real loop when he disrupts his parents' destiny. It's a race against time (literally!) to get them to pucker up -- and to get him back to 1985!

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982)

Starring: William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, DeForest Kelley, James Doohan, Walter Koenig, Director: Nicholas Meyer, Rating: PG

To escape his desk job, Adm. James T. Kirk (William Shatner) returns to the USS Enterprise, assisting Spock (Leonard Nimoy) in a training mission for Starfleet cadets. But the inexperienced crew is put to the test when escaped villain Khan (Ricardo Montalban) steals a powerful weapon and comes after the admiral seeking revenge. Now, Kirk must use all his wiles and whip the cadets into shape if they hope to defeat Khan's deadly traps.

Star Trek III - The Search for Spock (1984)

Actors: Merritt Butrick, Robin Curtis, Joe W. Davis, James Doohan, Robert Hooks

Despite triumphing over the evil Khan, Admiral Kirk's victory is a hollow one -- McCoy (DeForest Kelley) is going insane, and Spock (Leonard Nimoy) is dead. Or is he? Kirk (William Shatner) jeopardizes his career by commandeering the U.S.S. Enterprise for a mission to the Genesis Planet. If he and his aging crew can defeat a deadly crew of Klingons, they may just be able to rescue their absent friend.

Star Trek IV - The Voyage Home (1986)

Actors: Vijay Amritraj, Michael Berryman, Mike Brislane, Robin Curtis, James Doohan

It's the 23rd century in director Leonard Nimoy's Oscar-nominated sci-fi adventure, and a mysterious power is threatening Earth by evaporating the oceans and destroying the atmosphere. To save mankind, Capt. Kirk (William Shatner), Dr. McCoy (DeForest Kelley) and the rest of the Starship Enterprise crew travel back in time to 1986 San Francisco, a world as alien to them as anything they've encountered in their travels through the galaxy.

Aliens (1986)

Starring: Sigourney Weaver, Michael Biehn Director: James Cameron Rating: R

Sigourney Weaver shines as the most stalwart crewmember of a space freighter that inadvertently takes on an unwanted visitor. As the bloodthirsty beast stalks the crew (including Tom Skerritt, John Hurt and Yaphet Kotto), they begin to realize they're pitted against a malevolent monster that's perfectly evolved to annihilate humankind.

The Fifth Element (1997)

Starring: Bruce Willis, Milla Jovovich Director: Luc Besson Rating: PG-13

New York City in the 23rd century is a madhouse of flying taxis, street gangs and media overload.

Stargate - The Ark of Truth (2008)

Actors: Ben Browder, Amanda Tapping, Christopher Judge, Michael Shanks, Claudia Black, Rating: NR

Blasting off where the Sci-Fi Channel s longest running show, Stargate SG-1, left off, this thrilling feature thrusts the Stargate team Daniel Jackson (Michael Shanks), Vala (Claudia Black), Teal c (Christopher Judge), Sam (Amanda Tapping) and Cam (Ben Browder) into their biggest challenge yet. In search of an Ancient artifact they hope can defeat the oppressive Ori, the team not only learns that the Ori are set to launch a final assault on Earth, but a double-crossing I.O. operative is aboard the Odyssey! Also starring Beau Bridges, this pulse-pounder is loaded with enough suspense, humor and action to fill a galaxy!

The Matrix Collection (The Matrix/ The Matrix Reloaded/ The Matrix Revolutions/ The Animatrix) (2003)

Starring: Keanu Reeves, Laurence Fishburne, Director: Andy Jones, Andy Wachowski, Rating: R

In this complex story that aspires to mythology, a computer hacker (Keanu Reeves) searches for the truth behind the mysterious force known as the Matrix. He finds his answer with a group of strangers led by the charismatic Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne). What they encounter in confronting that truth makes for a lightning-paced, eye-popping thrill ride of a movie that cleverly combines sociopolitical commentary with cutting-edge special effects.

This action-packed trilogy finds an unconscious Neo (Keanu Reeves) trapped in Mobil Avenue, a subway station in an intermediate zone between the Matrix and the machine world, controlled by the Trainman (Bruce Spence). Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss) and Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne) attempt to free Neo so he can lead the fight to save Zion, but a powerful enemy complicates their mission.

In a race against government agents, an alien hunter and time itself, Jack must help the children recover their lost spaceship so they can return home and save their planet and ours. Breathtaking chases, close calls and special effects make this an action-adventure the whole family will enjoy.
