99 Science Fiction Films

If you love sci-fi, you must see these films!

This is not a countdown of “the best” scifi movies, the numbers are for organizational purposes only and should not be taken as one is better than another. All are great for their own reasons (which is actually the point of this exercise). View the entire list here.

War of the Worlds: 99 Science Fiction Films You Must See

The 1953 film War of the Worlds, produced by George Pal and directed by Byron Haskin, is probably the most recognized adaptation of H.G. Wells’ 1898 novel and is considered to be a classic in the genre. I consider it the best 1950s B-movie ever made. There have been many adaptations of War of the Worlds over the years.

In fact there are several more that could be added to the list.

As with many films on this list I first discovered this movie watching TV late at night. I suppose it will become a running theme in this segment, insomnia and UHF leading to some pretty strange post-midnight viewings.
