Putting the "science" in science-fiction, these are the cream of the extra terrestrial crop. Truly, out of this world!

    Dude, I'm not a huge Life of Brian fan, but the space scene was one of the best things in the history of film.

    Great list! Of course, I would say that about any list that leads off with The X from Outer Space.

    Great list. I might have included House or 3 Women because they are so "out there"....

    First thing that popped in my mind when I read that, then laughed when I saw them below.

    Good list, but what about "The Man Who Fell To Earth"?

      I definitely agree that it's the greatest Wells film adaptation, I was blown away when I decided to watch it on a whim.

    As intriguing as Things to Come is, I disagree with your assertion that it's the best Wells adaptation on film. To my mind, James Whale's The Invisible Man still takes that prize.
