Top 10: 2001 Blade Runner (Director's Cut) Alien Aliens (one of the best action movies, competing with the one below) Terminator II The Fifth Element Star Wars IV Star Wars V A Clockwork Orange Battlestar Galactica - the 2004-9 remake series (not a movie, but fantastic Sci-Fi IMO)
Honorable mentions: Dark City District 9 The Matrix ET Brazil Predator Total Recall (1990) 12 Monkeys ...
So many mentioned that I like. Star Trek original TV series (I was not allowed to watch TV on a school night but my parents knew how much I was into the space thing so if I had all my homework done I was allowed to watch it) Wrath of Khan Dune Martian Chronicles Incredible Shrinking Man B5 (too bad it was cut short and rushed to a conclusion)
I tend to like the original versions and the 50s black and white stuff. My theory has always been: a day with bad sci-fi is better than a day with no sci-fi.

I agree with 99% of what has been listed already. Do not like remakes like the originals the best. The only reason I do not agree 100% is I'm not sure that all these are Sci Fi and not just Fiction. Any way here are some of my Favs.

The Firefly series was wonderful, as was the movie Serenity. Grade A.
Aliens is a movie that I give as homework to some of my patients that have been abused. The plot is a wonderful metaphor about Ripley rescuing her inner child (Newt)from her traumatic past by slaying the abuser. Wonderful stuff, very empowering.
