Why science-fiction and fantasy? Because the lines are blurrier than you might think. Many think of Star Wars as sci-fi, but its complete lack of hard science also lands it in fantasy camp. Extraterrestrials are usually considered sci-fi, but alien worlds verge on fantasy. The two genres have a lot in common: Lots of silly names, lots of expensive sets. In the end, the qualifications were loose, and we considered movies with a strong element of the otherworldly, the impossible, the futuristic, and the fantastical (but not counting anything where Denise Richards plays a nuclear scientist). Filmcritic.com polled its 20-person roster to rank order the best of the genre. Some obvious winners are mixed with some truly surprising results. (Some film series are lumped together; some are not. We’re funny that way.) Here’s our top 50.
