15. V for Vendetta is flat out one of the best movies I have seen in years.
Regardless of the genre. I thoroughly enjoyed the Lord of the Rings trilogy and have watched it numerous times on my front projector on a 7' screen, even watching it as a 11 hour marathon, but that is more fantasy. One sci-fi flick I have enjoyed is The Fifth Element with Bruce Willis, but Bladerunner is great too.
