Top 20 Sci-fi Movies According to Wired Magazine

New issue of Wired lists top 20 sci-fi movies of all times. I more or less agree, though I would change the order:

  1. Blade Runner
  2. Gattaca
  3. The Matrix
  4. 2001: A Space Odyssey
  5. Brazil
  6. A Clockwork Orange
  7. Alien
  8. The Boys From Brazil (Movie about cloning Hitler. Stars, among others, a very young Steve Guttenberg, who went on to be in the genius sci-fi classic, Short Circuit. Yeah.)
  9. Jurassic Park
  10. Star Wars (rated higher than Empire?!?)
  11. The Road Warrior
  12. Tron
  13. The Terminator
  14. Sleeper (I am ashamed to say I haven't seen this)
  15. Soylent Green (uh...I might have left this one off)
  16. Robocop
  17. Planet of the Apes
  18. The Day the Earth Stood Still
  19. Akira
  20. Barbarella (sure, Jane Fonda was hot, but...)

Any grievous omissions?
