Bladerunner definitely deserves to be on there. It's one of the few science fiction movies that, along with its original story, actually shaped (or predicted) the future. Not in terms of robots, but in terms of urban design, and the kind of cities people would be living in when the future came.

My list is a combination of personal preference and socio-cultural importance:

- Bladerunner
- 2001: A Space Odyssey
- 28 Days Later
- The Planet of the Apes
- Children of Men
- Another Earth
- Inception
- The Matrix
- Metropolis
- The Road
- T2: Judgement Day

Inception is one of my favourite films although I don't really personally think of it as sci-fi for some reason. Jurassic Park also I guess doesn't count?

Otherwise my favourites off the top of my head are:

Star Wars original trilogy
Aliens
The Matrix (& Reloaded before the last parts)
Terminator I & II
Predator

The new Star Trek is also not far off being on the list.

I am almost tempted to include Starship Troopers to my list.

Not that I think it is a particularly good movie. But like Bladerunner, it somehow was successful at predicting the future via peripheral elements unrelated to the core story. The satirical military propaganda films, presented ironically in Starship Troopers, are being shown today almost literally by the pro-US military movies targetting young people. I'm talking about Transformers 1-3, Battle Los Angeles, Battleship, GI Joe; basically any movie made with US military cooperation. The shot selection, the music, it's frighteningly uncanny the resemblance.

Alien is sci-fi horror. Aliens is sci-fi action I guess?

I pretty much like all science fiction even the bad, but Blade Runner is one I have to mention by name. I didnt much care for it the first time I watched it, but I'm always surprised by how I like it more and more each time I watch it .
