If you count out Avatar, here's my list:

- The Matrix (the whole trilogy). AMAZING depth, wonderful movie qualities. The best of the best.

- District 9. Incredibly well made, and it truly shows the darker sides of humanity.

- Star Wars (all of them). Nothing to say here.

...and a thousand or so more, that I don't have the energy to write down

The most recent science fiction movie I've seen (apart from Avatar SE) was Cargo. It was pretty good.

Besides Avatar...

The Abyss - but you gotta watch the 'special edition' version, it turns a great movie into an astoundingly great movie.

...and 2001: A Space Odyssey, which is endlessly great to think and ponder about.

Love the music in both of 'em too!
