The 100 Best Science Fiction Movies of All Time, According to Critics

"At its best, science fiction can present a captivating, inventive picture of societal trends and flaws.
The Metacritic data we compiled here to track the most critically acclaimed sci-fi movies of all time traces a lineage of great films from Stanley Kubrick's "2001: A Space Odyssey" to the Tom Cruise-led "Minority Report" and Spike Jonze's "Her."
The resulting list includes all of the highest rated movies that feature a "sci-fi" tag on the site, which turned out to be a wide-ranging categorization."
