In honor of Ridley Scott's upcoming sci-fi feature "Prometheus," CelebTV has put together some of the best and worst sci-fi movies of all time. Some of the movies, like "Terminator 2," are indisputable classics. Others, like "Plan 9 From Outer Space," are so terrible they're great. Check out the clip below for some truly awful and amazing flicks.

There's plenty of bad sci-fi out there, but when it comes to good sci-fi, your options are limited. You could go with an obvious choice, like the original "Star Wars" trilogy or Steven Spielberg's "Jurassic Park" classic; or you could go with something a little more subtle, like Scott's cult favorite "Blade Runner" or "2001: A Space Odyssey." If you don't see your favorite, feel free to write it in. The choice for best sci-fi movie is yours to make!

    My choice is "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde." Mad scientists make the best villians. For another example, Dr. Frankenstein. Yay or nay?

    Plan 9 from Outer Space? You've got to be kidding; that is widely acknowledged as the worst movie of any genre ever made.

    "Star Wars"
    Star Wars (First Place)

    Terminator (Second Place)

    Avatar (Third Place)

    Predator (Fourth Place)

    I can't wait for Terminator 5 and Avatar 2 to come out.

    Terminator 5, supposedly John Connor goes back into the past before Judgement Day, but this time he is in London... Damn It! When is Kyle Reese going back!

    Avatar 2 is about the Space Marines coming back to Pandora, are they still hostile or friendly? I don't know. Maybe there is a bigger threat coming to Pandora...

    Equilibrium is the most underrated Sci-Fi movie around. It invented a new form of gunplay, that is ultimately badass.

    Of course Star Wars. There are a whole bunch of other great movies out there though.
  • Wolverineland 2012/06/09 08:31:24
    "Forbidden Planet"- Anne Francis & Leslie Nielsen, teleporters a decade before Star Trek, special effects that had never been seen before, 60 gallons of robot replicated Kansas City "Ancient Rocket" Bourbon and the unlikely comedic pairing of Earl Holliman with Robby the Robot. Those combinations spell instant classic. forbidden planet

    Btw, James Cameron directed 3 of the ones on the list, Aliens was better than Alien, sorry

    "Terminator 2"
    ✞Knight of Honor
    The real answer is the original Terminator film (The Thing [1982] and Aliens are a close competators though).

    I'm also giving respect to Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan and Tron: Legacy too.
  • BlackwinterG36C 2012/06/09 05:40:50
    "Star Wars"
    The Alien series, Matrix series, and Terninator series come close. But ANY of the 6 Star Wars movies tops this whole list.

    It would be hard to pick one single best of all time sci-fi movie. I would have to say all of the above as well as many of those listed in the comments.
  • OzSurfer 2012/06/09 04:49:05 (edited)
    The second Alien movie called "Aliens" was the best I thought.

  • J-DUB 2012/06/09 04:35:33 (edited)
    How about an "all of the above" option?
    Also "They Live" is an awesome classic.

    "2001: A Space Odyssey"
    I did not click on 2001: A Space Odyssey. My Favorite is "The Fifth Element" I love this movie, and I think I've seen this about 30 times, and still not tired of it.
