      It's cheating a bit (TV series, not a movie) but HBO's Game Of Thrones is amazing (and finally on Netflix!). Not really for the kids though...

      I'm ashamed to admit that I missed the majority of these, but I'm definitely planning on checking them all out soon. Great selection! Also, the best sci-fi movie I've seen recently is probably Chronicle or, if we go with adaptations, The Hunger Games.
