(I consider Alien and both versions of the The Thing to be more horror than science fiction, hence, their absence from this list. I wrestled with the idea of including the first two Mad Max movies and Bride of Frankenstein, but decided they weren'y quite "purely" SF enough.)
Good choices from other lists: Close Encounters; Minority Report; Gattaca; Iron Giant; The Day the Earth Stood Still.
