There's no getting around it. Science fiction provides the bedrock for pretty much all of the biggest blockbusters Hollywood is producing at the moment.
The genre has fuelled the imagination of filmmakers right the way back to a "Trip to the Moon" a 9-minute black-and-white short that charted an expedition into space.
So in theory what is the greatest sci-fi movie ever to be made.

Escape From New York (1981), is one of my all time favorites.
The year is 1997 and crime is so bad that the Island of Manhattan has been declared a federal prison.
Past the initial premise and some cool-for-its-day opening computer graphics, Escape From New York is a film that's actually better in your memory than in reality. Though nothing can take away from the chandeliers fixed to the hood of Isaac Hayes's car.
