Best Sci-Fi Movies are some of the most desired movies in motion picture history, with movies such as Star Wars and Aliens keeping viewers on the fringe of their collective seats for many years. Great sci-fi movies consist of stories of extraterrestrial life, time travel, space travel, robots and much more. Many of these amazing sci-fi movies tend to be more fantasy-oriented, while some are a bit closer to reality. In either case, top sci fi movies keep audiences rapt with tales of technology and science, combined, occasionally with all the supernatural.
