From 'Black Panther' To 'Force Awakens': The 100 Best Sci-Fi Movies Of All Time

When it comes to ranking movies, it is rare to reach a consensus. Nonetheless, Business insider just published a new list of the best sci-fi movies of all time. To do so, the site used data collected by Metacritican American website which gathers the different scores given to one movie and turns it into a percentage.

Business insider relied on the critics’ opinion to rank all the movies classified in the sci-fi section of the website, and even if the results are debatable, it remains a list of the most critically-acclaimed sci-fi movies of all time.

The top 3 is as follows: Metropolis (fair enough), followed by Gravity (nominated for 7 oscars in 2017) and… Wall-E. Sure, the animated movie starring the most endearing robot is great. But is it better than E.T or Close Encounters of the Third Kind?

Fun fact of this top: 2018 seems to be an incredible year for the genre with six movies produced within the year making it to the top 100, setting a record. Globally, more than half of the movies in this ranking were shot in the years 2010s, among which: Her (8th position), Mad Max: Fury road (13th) and Star Wars: Episode VIII – The Last Jedi (2017) (22nd).

We couldn’t help but notice the absence of some great movies such as Matrix. Almost unforgivable.
