Blade Runner Named Best Sci-fi Movie Ever
Blade Runner has been named the best sci-fi movie of all time in a new online poll.
The futuristic film, directed by Ridley Scott and starring Harrison Ford and Rutger Hauer, tops a list compiled by editors at Moviefone.com - beating all the Star Wars, Alien, and Terminator movies hands down.
Moviefone editors explain their choice, "A box office dud at the time of its release, this movie has undergone more facelifts than Joan Rivers. Regardless, it's a dark future with film noir elements dripping from every pore."
The poll also throws down the gauntlet for movie makers to create a new contender - none of the top 25 was made in the 21st Century.
The top ten is as follows:
Blade Runner, 1982
Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, 1980
Star Wars: A New Hope, 1977
The Day the Earth Stood Still, 1951
The Matrix, 1999
Terminator 2, Judgement Day, 1991
The Thing, 1982
Forbidden Planet, 1956.
