Top 100 Science Fiction and Super-Hero Films (+ Classic Scifi/Horror)

(November 18, 2014)
Her Iron Man 3 Gravity
Spike Jonze's SciFi/A.I. film, "Her", was the top renting title in our Science Fiction/Superheroes section this time around. Coming in second was Robert Downey Jr in "Iron Man 3" followed by Sandra Bullock and George Clooney's stranded in space thriller "Gravity". The rest of the list is pretty much as expected: you'll see all of the Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Matrix, Star Wars, Twilight, etc titles along with some older titles (2001: A Space Odyssey, Jurassic Park, Robocop, etc) and a slew of the newer titles (Godzilla, Pacific Rim, Snowpiercer, etc) -- no real surprises but a good reminder of a few films you might have missed. Remember, our SF section includes some stuff one might put in a Fantasy Section so, for now, you'll find all of the Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, and Twilight titles sharing shelves with the Alien trilogy, the Star Wars trilogy and Independence Day. Note: The glaring lack of any Star Trek and Doctor Who titles is because each has their own section. Check the Top 100 Master Index for their respective Top 100 lists.
