    If you really want to watch some good scifi movies, you need to expand your search to extend much earlier than 2000.

    A few good ones:

    Twelve Monkeys
    Aliens
    The Thing

    Glad we could agree Totally gonna watch both Avatar and Independence day tonight xD
    Bah.. yea:P I could probably watch either of them again tonight. My.. erm friend (hopefully future bf) is a huge fan of sci fi and even though I prefer fantasy myself, it's one of our shared interests. So suggesting either of those movies would be a bad idea as he has probably seen them more times than me and they are so popular. I wouldnt want him to think that I just lied to him and only pretend to be into scifi:P

    Hehe, the crazy things people do and lie about for the sake of love. xD

    Protip: Men can't distinguish fantasy from science fiction. Show him Peter pan(Robin williams one), it's science fiction, trust me. xD

    If you haven't seen Pitch Black, I'd highly recommend it.

    Honorable mention must go to Pandorum It's like Sunshine; thriller, a bit confusing thus probably not what you are looking for ... but it's good. It's labeled as horror on imdb, but I am not sure why.

    What's the worst that can happen to you ...

    I was going to suggest the most recent Star Trek, but you've already seen it! The new one is out soon and I can't wait! If you manage to find any good ones you'll have to let me know.

    Too risky.:P He already told me he hates Twilight so kind of want to impress him but also pick something I would enjoy myself. Wouldnt want to lie to be honest, it could get awkward..

    PS.

    Seen Pitch black 4 times, the sequel twice. Vin Diesel <3 perfect antihero

    Well mars attacks comes to mind, but well its not really sifi or new or annything.
    Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent.
    Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent.
    Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil?
    Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?

    Who WOULDN'T want to watch Martians having their heads exploded by Tom Jones multiple times?

    Minority Report and Total Recall (2012) might be worth mentioning.

    But if you lstick to Sci-Fi Blockbusters with "sploshions" then you're really limiting yourself.

    After all all good Sci-Fi conveys a deeper message and says something about humanity as a whole.

    I'm pretty sure they died to Barry Manilow.

    I think I've seen it but dont really remember it. Thanks for the suggestion. Looked it up on the imdb. Sounds like a solid choice.

    ... That's why most sci-fy and fantasy authors are guys and why the most adamant fans of both genres are guys right? God that comment was such a huge load of crap.... Besides, claiming that you don't understand why The Thing (a film about a freaking alien inspirer by the Old Gods of Lovecraft) ia sci-fy and saying that sci-fy can't be scary speaks volumes.....

    Seen Total Recall both versions. the 2012 one was a disappointment (no Mars). Minority report - crime, mystery? very negative.. but I'm trying to keep an open mind, been positively surprised before.

    PS

    Seen Twelve Monkeys - worst movie ever. Confusing mess.. I like Bruce Willis though so I guess seeing it once was worth it. If it was any other lead actor, I'd probably want my wasted time back

    Nothing confusing about 12 Monkeys, they pretty much walk you through the plot.

    Yea, I understood what the movie was about in the end. It just wasn't scifi or fantasy. The message of the movie was more about karma of fate and I really hate that concept with a passion. It's just a matter taste, I'm even not saying it was a bad movie, it just wasn't for me. I also hated Butterfly Effect, Donnie Darko and all sorts of pseudo "deep" movies like that.

    Dat sense of humor. I mean even when reading it the comments appears kinda lighthearted doesn't it ? The amount of seriousness writing that line was about this much <-->

    I was absolutely serious about The thing though. That shit is more horror than science fiction. And I never said it wasn't science fiction, just that I personally don't perceive it as such(which is a perfectly valid opinion)

    I mean seriously.. I respect guys but quit with the stereotypes. There are plenty of female sci-fi fans. I can't speak for others but I'm personally fascinated by interesting concepts and technology if presented in a realistic fashion. And the funny fact is that Im not even overweight or born with a double Y chromosome. Just give the girls a chance.. not all of us want to be dumb bimbos.

    So many good movies people are recomending =p

    district 9 - awesome
    pitch black - still waiting on the 3rd move in the 'trology'
    sunshine - silly concept but good
    the core - ridiculious and mad but an entertaining disaster movie

    my recommendation would be 'Serenity'. one of those movies people seem to have missed. It was made to wrap up the series which was cancelled after just 1 season. it was good but the network had there heads up there asses =)
