Or at least the Sci-Fi Flicks for the Thinking Man, which makes sense, since Rotten Tomatoes put this 10 best list together. This is a different kind of list, put together in honor of the final story segment for the new Battlestar Galactica series, and a mighty good list it is. It includes Dark City (which also made the Top 50 Dystopian Movies of All Time meme, in the number 30 position), Gattaca (25 on that list), Children of Men (6th place), and Blade Runner (at number 5). Primer didn’t make the Dystopian list, but was one of the best time travel movies ever made, and didn’t need a big budget to do it. 2001: A Space Odyssey also didn’t make the D list, but had to be on this one. And then there are Solaris and Close Encounters of the Third Kind, and several more. For once, a list actually includes the targets its description requires.
