Top 25 of the last 25

Filed under: Film — SFG @ 12:57

Entertainment Weekly has created a top 25 rundown of what it considers the best in the genre across film and TV, from over the past 25 years.
I’ve reproduced the list for you below, with each entry linking to the write-up that EW has created for each entry.

25, V: THE MINISERIES (1983)
24, GALAXY QUEST (1999)
23, DOCTOR WHO (1963–Present)
22, QUANTUM LEAP (1989–1993)
21, FUTURAMA (1999–2003)
20, STAR WARS: CLONE WARS (2003–2005)
19, STARSHIP TROOPERS (1997)
18, HEROES (2006–Present)
17, ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND (2004)
16, TOTAL RECALL (1990)
15, FIREFLY/SERENITY (2002/2005)
14, CHILDREN OF MEN (2006)
13, THE TERMINATOR/ TERMINATOR 2 (1984 /1991)
12, BACK TO THE FUTURE (1985)
11, LOST (2004–Present)
10, THE THING (1982)
09, ALIENS (1986)
08, STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION (1987–1994)
07, E.T. (1982)
06, BRAZIL (1985)
05, STAR TREK II: THE WRATH OF KHAN (1982)
04, THE X-FILES (1993–2002)
03, BLADE RUNNER (1982)
02, BATTLESTAR GALACTICA (2003–Present)
01, THE MATRIX (1999)

Now, I have a problem with Starship Troopers being in a list of the top 25 best Sci-Fi, simply because it’s total utter tripe. I also have a bit of a problem with the X-Files being in the list too. Granted, it had sci-fi elements to it, but overall I simply don’t see that show as being a science fiction show, but hey, I know I’m fighting a losing battle with that, so I’ll let it be. Oh, and for your information, I class Aliens as a horror film. It just happens to be set in space. *shrug*

Oh, and I’ve seen all of these apart from Children of Men, which I plan on rectifying soon.

  1. Mark, I agree with the Starship Troopers opinion. I’ve never understood how so many people liked it. Garbage.

    Also, I’m glad to hear you will be finally seeing Children of Men. I seem to remember you saying that you wanted to see it in the cinema, a few weeks after it closed. I’ll be interested to hear what you make of it.
