Science fiction is a genre of speculative fiction, typically dealing with imaginative concepts such as advanced science and technology, spaceflight, time travel, and extraterrestrial life – and many movies have come and gone in this genre.

top 100 sci fi movies

From The Lord of the Rings, to Star Wars, Star Trek, to name a few, we have had some unforgettable and time-testing sci-fi movies and more will come.

In this light, Business Insider has developed the top 100 Sci-Fi movies of all time, and while the list includes some iconic movies, we could not help but notice the absence of some of the world’s favourites like The Matrix and Ready Player One (Add Yours In The Comments Section).

A positive side though, is the fact that six 2018 movies made the list including our iconic Black Panther.

The Metacritic data was compiled to track the most critically acclaimed sci-fi movies of all time  and it traces a lineage of great films from Stanley Kubrick’s “2001: A Space Odyssey” through the Tom Cruise-led “Minority Report” and Spike Jonze’s “Her.”
