My Top 10 Sci-Fi Movies: #10 – The Terminator

I’m going on vacation for about 10 days, so there is no better time to do my first top 10 list! (Protip: You can find out what I’m up to on my vacation by following me on Twitter)  

So each day for the next 10 days I will reveal one of my top 10 favourite sci-fi movies.  

Now bear in  mind that these are my favourite movies; movies that I have watched over and over again and am always amazed at how good they are.  

Sure, you can probably come up with a movie thats better crafted, with a better script or better special effects (and please tell me by commenting!). But the movies listed here are the ones I hold close to my heart and I’m happy to share them with all of you.  

So lets start at the beginning:  

#10 – The Terminator (1984)



So most people are going to say that T2 is better than the original. And I’ll agree that it has better special effects and a bit more of an optimistic ending.  

But the first Terminator is so original that it tops T2 any day of the week for me (or any of the other sequels for that matter). And Schwarzenegger is such a bad-ass in this one, as opposed to the more sappy version of the Terminator in T2.  

And that moment at the end when the Terminator has had all its skin burned off from the gas truck explosion, and it rises up out of the ashes. I can’t think of a more awesome moment in old school sci fi history.  

All this makes the original ‘Terminator’ a perfect starting point for my top 10.  

“Nice night for a walk.”
