Check the films you've watched all the way through.

There are 300 movies on the list.
I have seen too many.
Ditto. Many these days suck - except for the special effects.
Well I have seen a few good ones and way too many bad ones, and remarkably most of the really bad ones are modern films.
Argh! My fingers got tired of checking at 60, so I quit. The only one of the first 60 I haven’t seen is Kronos. Did they miss The Crawling Eye?
Only real movies seen in a real movie theatre with popcorn and cherry coke only counts.
Everything else doesn`t count.
119, surprised that Road Warrior wasn’t on it.
267! I’m slacking! =)
The Incredible Shrinking Man (NOT about this president) is a very good movie. Shrinking Man is so well written, I could imagine it as a three act play in the round, especially that unwrapping scene. Black Lighting or phospherous material could be used to achieve that effect of void today.
The attack of the 50ft Woman, like another movie about a giant Cyclops, were both SEARED into my mind as a kid, watching on tv after dinner hour. This was way back into my childhood, when I was still debating the possible existence of Elves and Leprecahns with my older sister.
Back before cable, broadcast channels usually showed sports or movies on weekends and after the evening news. Many of those on the list showed up once or twice.
When I got cable in Tulsa in the mid-1980s, one channel showed either Metropolis or Things to Come for weeks at a time.
“You have watched 181 out of 300 on this list!”
Almost all the rest I have seen parts of them, but not the whole movie.
watched 95....need more lazy time
The Incredible Shrinking Man is great.
I think the 1950s are the Golden Age of science fiction movies.
Don’t recall seeing any Ray Harryhausen films either. That makes the list completely bogus.
I simply suggest that their definition is rather odd....
I also not that their is not a single early Flash Gordon (even though serialized) title listed
And lastly, why if comedies are included and other odd things like the Stepford Wives then why not something like the Wizard of Oz?
I scored 38 out 300. However, if the Thing with Two Heads can be included, why not “They Saved Hitler’s Brain” or “Simone”?
Nineteen - not much of a science fiction fan...
I used to like to watch the ole Japanese monster movies — Godzilla, etc.
They were so bad that they were a laugh riot to watch.
You have watched 205 out of 300 on this list!
The over use of CGI has turned me off to a lot of new movies. I call them cartoon movies.
I counted 234 that I’ve seen.
Ditto. My total was 33. Galaxy Quest is way more comedy than sci-fi as a genre, but okay. OTOH -- Hot Tub Time Machine is sci-fi? That's stretching it.
I know I've seen parts of a lot more of these, esp. the older classics, but I didn't count those.
45 out of 300. Probably another 50 that I started but couldn’t finish.
Favorites are 2001 and Close Encounters. Sci Fi isn’t really my genre.

|Woo hoo!! And the first 39% is in!! Thank you all very much!!|
Unfortunately one of those was District 9, the worst piece of crap, so much so, I almost walked out of the theater. And I have never walked out of a theater.
Upon leaving, some guy wondered aloud how soon the sequel would come out. I wanted to slap him senseless.
And I saw a boatload of movies that I now want to see!
The catch is, you have to have watched them all the way through. Many of these I’ve attempted to watch but never made it through to the end because they were either too boring or simply bad (The remake of “The Day the Earth Stood Still” comes to mind.) Take Fritz Lang’s 1929 “Woman in the Moon” for example. Since I was a kid reading “Famous Monsters of FIlmland” magazine I’ve read how great it was. When I finally got a chance to watch it on Netflix, to my disappointment, I found it to be an utter bore. Congrats to Buzzfeed for irresistible click-bait though.
147. It appears I am a mad scientist
Anyone who grew up with a television in the house in the seventies would have been exposed to the first sixty or so by default, from Saturday afternoon and late Saturday night programming. Fifties B-movies and sci-fi were a staple. I’ve seen 84 total. I gave up on movies for the most part by the late nineties. The acting became formulaic, the casting was rote involving some implausible set of actors who happened to be “hot” at the moment and the writing was trite. Special effects alone do not carry a movie. I also refuse to pay money to be propagandized.
I’ve probably seen about half of them, up to the year 2000 or so. After that, not many.
BTW, how many were given the MST3K treatment?
126 out of 300. I am surprised I haven’t seen more.
226. I noticed that whenever I didn’t mark a movie, it happened in bunches. Some years are just devoid of any good films...
129 out of 300.
I saw about 80% of the ones made after 1960, and only a few of those made before that.
I love Sci Fi movies.
Yes, they missed Forest Tuckers greatest role and its British counterpart “The Trollenberg Terror”.
They also missed a bazillion other sci-fi B flicks. Could be a good thing ;)
There are also a few of the 151 movies I saw that were a complete waste of time, #1 on the list being "Lost in Space," which I got for free with the purchase of my first DVD player. I still feel that somebody owes me for the time I wasted watching that movie!
TV doesn`t count
153. A lot of these are debatable as to definition, but I want to explicitly state that ‘Gravity’ is not science fiction.
There are very few people living who could have seen some of the earlier ones in a theater. The only criterion was to have watched a given movie all the way through to the end.
MST3K really make the bad ones worth watching, the cheesier, the better.
Did they actually leave out “Invaders From Mars”?
"The Brain That Wouldn't Die" seems to be the only one on the list.
