I still remember seeing Star Wars the first time- I was 7 years old and my best friend and I got dropped off at the theater on some horribly sticky hot afternoon. We sat in the front row and I remember swinging my head from side to side as I tried to see all of the introductory scroll and read it. And then there was the Imperial ship, just going on and on and on as the theater rumbled... Afterwards, we bought rolls of SweeTarts and pretended they were light sabers as we waited to get picked up. Best movie experience of my life. To this day, whenever I'm watching a movie and the screen goes dark and I hear the music for 20th Century Films, there's this tiny surge of adrenaline and the thought, in the very back of my mind, "Star Wars!" Just for a second, I'm seven years old again. I swear, it happens every single time.

I'd have to call Blade Runner the best Sci Fi movie, though. Other favorites, all of which are previously mentioned; Terminator I and II, Alien (still scares the crap out of me), Aliens, Wrath of Khan, Empire Strikes Back, Predator (what other movie stars 2 future governors?), and Serenity. One minor thing about Serenity that bugs me: you could hear the explosions in a vacuum, a detail that Firefly got right. I loved the complete silence.
