Weirdly enough, I haven't seen the topic in the list.

Badlands would easily be in my top 25, as it's by far my favorite Malick movie.

Still need to see Stalker (maybe tonight, but we'll see).

Fight Club kicks ass (I also love the book) but I prefer Fincher's Seven and Zodiac.

The Big Lebowski would also probably fall into my top 25, as it's one of my absolute favorite comedies.

Sadly, I have still yet to see Seven Samurai. I've been meaning to delve into Kurosawa but the only film of his I own is High and Low, which I though was a tad overrated (it's actually one of the Coen Brothers' favorite movies).

Waking Life is pretty good, but if a Linklater movie were to fall in my top 25, it would have to be the classic, Dazed and Confused.

Loved The Fountain, but I prefer Aronofsky's Requiem for a Dream...That one is a masterpiece, in my mind...

2001: A Space Odyssey continues to perplex me. I've seen it a few times but still can't say I'm a fan...If I'm in the mood for Kubrick, I'd rather watch The Shining, A Clockwork Orange, or The Killing...or even Full Metal Jacket...

Surprised to see you haven't already delved into Kurosawa. Not that I've seen too many of his films, he has such a huge catalouge. Like for instance I haven't seen High and Low. But yeah check out Seven Samurai, Ran, Yojimbo, Ikiru and Rashomon.

Requiem for a Dream may be the better picture, I'm just an enthusiast of a lot of the themes in the Fountain. Death and reincarnation, that is. The Wrestler is the only Aronofsky I haven't seen. I love everything of his that I have seen.

The trick to watching 2001 is to watch it on a psychedelic, if you're into that stuff.

I don't want to be a Debbie Downer! But It seems like to me that some of you are picking the best movies over all and some are picking the best Sci-Fi moves over all!

Sci-Fi top 10.

1). The Time Machine (1960 George Pal).

2). The Omega Man (1971, Charlton Heston).

3). Planet of the Apes (1968).

4). War of the Worlds (1968).

5). Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956).

6). When Worlds Collide (1951).

7). Soylent Green (1973).

8). Star Wars (1977).

9). Alien (1979) and Mad Max (1979) tied!

10). Silent Running (1972).

Don't get me wrong there many great Sci-Fi movies out there! I just didn't list any after 1979!

I don't think that's fair. If some people wanna include some modern sci-fi movies in their top 10 movies, that's up to them.
