What about Flash Gordon too? Or was that in the 70's? That movie kicks ass. Krull too... That movie is another ass-kicker!

damn right Blade Runner is the best sci-fi movie of the 80s!!!!!!!!!
Nothing can beat this movie.
Of course you have to like slow scenes and a lot of talk and a hero who isn't really in the trade.
Just my humble opinion

I'll admit, Buckaroo Banzai kicked ass. I've got the VHS, and plan on picking up the DVD.

I'm probably the only person on earth who saw Spaceballs and didn't think it was very funny. I was disappointed in Mel, it certainly wasn't another "History of the World, Pt 1".

Krull sucked ass.

I don't see how one can compare Blade Runner with Alien, individually fantastic films but certainly not comparable in terms of content.

They were very different movies, focusing upon different themes and emotions. But they were also styled similarily (due, of course to the same director) and brought to life with the same idea of a large world closing in on its main characters.

In Blade Runner we have the whole world and city, at the end there only the two people fleeing, future unknown.

In Alien we have the whole of space and the large craft they are in, at the end there is only Ellen Ripley and her cat in a small shuttle, future unknown.

So I could see, in some manner, how they could be compared, but let us not fool ourselves into believing that these two films are to be sharing a category. While Blade Runner is more Science-Fiction Drama (with some action), Alien is very much Science-Fiction Horror.

Well, I'm easy to please. Krull wasn't LOTR, but I liked it. I think the biggest reason I get so sucked into sci-fi... no matter what it is... Is cause when I was a kid, I watched all this stuff and then I grew up and for some reason I believe all these memories of movies to be dreams I had. And then I see them on TV and I'm like "HOLY SHIT! It wasn't a fuckin' dream!"

Like... Flight of the Navigator... And Labyrinth... I used to think those were dreams I had.

Anyway...

That's because those films had such a fantastic feel to them.

As for Labrynth...I wished that it had only been a nightmare. That show messed me up as a kid.

Haha... It sure was fucked up, but god! I think it like gave me a boost in my hormones, cause I would always have dreams about doing bad things to Jennifer Connolly even before I hit puberty.

i think blade runner was the best in terms of being sci-fi without pushing into the realms of fantasy.

and scott’s original alien was released in the seventies, so it's not really relevant.


fantasy wise, the never ending story reigns supreme… who didn’t shed a tear when artex sank into that mud pit? it still gets me everytime.

How can the story be neverending if it has a sequel? Really?
(Though Jack Black was in the third one.)

And, by the by, I think Blade Runner was the most important science fiction film of the 80s, and Dark City the most important of the 90s. Neither were "visceral," but both pushed the envelope of what science fiction can be to the mass public (excluding the decades-old ideas and novels they were based on). And both really *meant* something.

personally, i thought "gattaca" was the most important sci-fi movie of the 90's.

in the same tradition of "bladerunner", it presented a completely plausible world, and not stretching the believability factor to the point where sci-fi becomes fantasy.

but "dark city" was definitely a cool movie, i just thought of it more as a detective/thriller/film noir kinda movie.

There was a third? And it had Jack Black? I didn't know that... Is it any good?

I enjoyed Gattaca. But I'm not sure about its placing of the best sci-fi of the 90's. I'm not too sure what to throw in there instead, but I will give some serious thought.

admittedly, i probably went a little over the top with the "most important" title, but it’s definitely up there… i’d have to give a little thought as to whether it would be #1 myself.

hm, I don't know. When was "Willow" released?? Could be in the 90s. If so, then forget it I'm not sure if this is the english name It had Val Kilmer in it, if this helps. I thought this was one of the best Fantasy movies! OK, No LOTR but good.
I never liked "The Neverending Story", even as a kid. I don't know why. It just never hit me as enjoyable.
And Sci-Fi?? I'm still going mith Blade Runner

Willow was in '88 or '89, I think. It has some cool parts, and great music. And really, not too many fantasy movies were released.
The Neverending Story is my fav *children's movie* of all time. I really don't think you can get any better.
