Science Fiction Future Classic Flicks! 25 of the best upcoming Hits! Hold on to your Bits!by krishneelz | created - 20 Sep 2012 | updated - 23 Jun 2014 | Public
This list is catered for all those SciFi nuts out there. I have shifted through thousands of movies to come up with an elite list of SCIFI's that are likely to be future classics based on writers, directors, plot and actors. I am hoping for some classics to come through, similar to the old days when creativity, well crafted plots and unbelievable special effects were the cornerstone of SciFi movies. Classics like The Fly, The Thing, 2001: A Space Odyssey are currently considered my favorites.
