The 30 Best Sci-Fi Movies of All Time, Ranked

Feed 25 best sci fi movies of all time ranked

Looking for some entertainment inspiration this weekend? You are in luck, Collider has ranked their top 30 Science Fiction films of all time! I’m going to check out number 29

From classics like Metropolis and Alien to Everything Everywhere All At Once, this is Collider’s ranking of the best science fiction movies ever.

The science fiction genre has been one of the most consistently thrilling to explore throughout the history of cinema. The way a visual medium like film can depict futuristic worlds or alternate realities means that almost anything which can be imagined can be depicted on-screen. Since the silent era, filmmakers have been using the medium to their advantage, commenting on humanity’s present and hypothesizing about its future through the science-fiction genre.

There are countless great sci-fi movies that have been released since the birth of cinema as an art form, and it’s ultimately futile to try and name every single amazing one. There are simply too many top sci-fi movies, and it’s a genre that’s still thriving, with new potential classics released seemingly every year. The following are among the best of the best, being classics for their entertainment value, excellent technical qualities, and historical significance, and are ranked below in order from great to greatest.


Though some are clamoring for a sequel that will probably never arrive (never say never, unless you can cowardly include a “probably” in there), District 9 still stands on its own as a great film regardless. It’s part mockumentary, part action movie, and part body horror, detailing what happens to an alien ship that becomes stranded over the city of Johannesburg.
