In no particular order:
Alien (the first one)
District 9 (one of the best sci-fi movies ever made)
The Thing (the 50s version)
Star Wars (I can't single out any of the six as separately they are not that wow, but the universe/culture it created is worth mentioning)
Blade Runner (P.K. Dick - that man is a genius, too bad not all the movies from his stories are that great)
Fantastic Voyage (I want an epic "Foundation" movie!)
Rollerball (the 1975 version)
Still not bad (mostly for the creative ideas): Matrix, Terminator, Jurassic Park (all the first versions)
I'm sure I missed a few.
Rollerball was a fantastic film--the remake was an atrocity and all involved should have had their fingernails pulled-out over it. I agree about Dick but I must say that in the case of Bladerunner this was a plus. It is one of those rare movies, like Jaws, that out-stripes the book it was based on. Foundation would be hard to do as a film I think. Perhaps a mini-series would be just the right format.
Actually, it was a result of my position in the OWS thread (which oddly enough is the same as yours). Strange. And here I get the impression you think I'm some sort of delusional right-wing crazy person...You doubtless said something funny, even if you meant it seriously... I am quite fond of a number of delusional people--I just feel they should be made aware of it what they say/do/display crazy without a hint of irony.
The sig, by the way, is satirical (not that there aren't a few people in the world who need a good "napalming" once in a while).
An Inconvenient Truth - that's the title I was looking for.
Second place would be Starship Troopers - both the book and the film. Lots of good socio-political commentary underneath the surface. Powerful stuff - should be required reading for poli-sci.
I certainly don't begrudge anyone making fun of Al Gore--the man has less personality than his own wax statue at Madame Tussauds. THAT is not the point however, and his critics seem to always being attempting to make it so.
I'd like to see a good movie out of the Man in the High Castle though. That seems doable.
