The Top Ten Best Science Fiction Movies

The Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies has a list -oh, how I love these lists- and says
The films below run the gauntlet between numinous wonder and existential despair, philosophical rumination and nail biting action. Where they relate is in the self-conscious attempt to artistically convey the un-conveyable and reveal aspects of humanity which disturb as often as they elevate.

1) 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)
2) Blade Runner (1982)
3) Alien (1979)
4) 12 Monkeys (1995)
5) A Clockwork Orange (1971)
6) Brazil (1985)
7) Naked Lunch (1991)
8) The Thing (1982)
9) Children of Men (2006)
10) A Scanner Darkly (2006)

Each film has a couple of paragraphs of annotation at that site.

I've read the ones in bold print. Not my best showing with a list, but I do have some of the un-watched films waiting on the shelf. I enjoy seeing some titles that don't always make it onto top-10 lists.
