    + 1 for Moon

    District 9 was good at the beginning, near the end it just got silly.

    Battlestar Galactica mini-series/movie is good, if you haven't watched it.

    All the Star Trek movies are pretty good (if you like Star Trek). The latest one was awesome, and Star Trek II is one of the best.

    I haven't gotten around to it, but I've heard Blade Runner is supposed to be good.

    I've asked my mom to put it on the Netflix cue. I usually don't pirate much in the way of movies. Is it good, though?

    Most "sci-fi" movies and series I know of are sci-fi (Action, comedy, etc...)

    2001: A Space Odysey -> Sci-Fi as I understand the term.

    Other enjoyable stuff:

    Star Trek movies -> Best viewed if you've seen one or two tv series.

    Space: Above and Beyond (aka Space 2063) -> Was really good and was just cancelled/ended. Should have more seasons.

    Firefly(Series) and Serenity(movie 'sequel') -> Was really good and was just cancelled/ended. Should have had more seasons. Aired episode order is messed up.

    Avatar(James Cameron movie) -> Awesome special effects and action, lame story. Starwars is more Sci-Fi than this one.

    Battlestar Galactica(Remake TV-Movie pilot and series) -> Great. Original 1978 is very campy.

    Starship Troopers -> Enjoyable to watch but has little to do with the book.

    Edit:
    I forgot:
    The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy -> Fun to watch
    Twentieth Century Boys -> Japanese film -> Story is tons better than Avatar

    Nostalgia corner:

    When Worlds Collide(1951 film)
    The War of the Worlds (1953 film)

    Waiting for:

    The Forever War(author Joe Haldeman)
