Top 10 Best Sci-Fi Movies (1990s - 2010s)
When Star Wars debuted in May of 1977, it forever changed the sci-fi genre with its epic fantasy story and groundbreaking technology. But, even though the long-awaited prequel trilogy that was launched in May of 1999 with Star Wars: The Phantom Menace boasted far superior special effects, it failed to make the same sort of impact on moviegoers as the original. Was Jar Jar Binks really the source of the ambivalence that many fans felt toward The Phantom Menace or was it that they had already had their minds blown by The Matrix, which opened two months prior? And how do the Star Wars prequels and The Matrix trilogy stack up against other sci-fi movies with next-level special effects like Avatar or more cerebral movies like Donnie Darko? Sit down, jack in and upload your choices of the best sci-fi movies from 1990 to today.
