    "Everything you heard about Empire Strikes Back being the best film in the whole Star Wars franchise is true. I was one with Luke Skywalker who cried "No!!!!!!!!!!!!!" when Darth Vader revealed that he was his father. I can't wait for my boys to watch this film. Empire certainly tops this list, no question about it."

    "If Empire Strikes Back is the greatest Star Wars movie of all time, then Return of the Jedi isn't really far behind. And I am not surprised to see this land second on this list. Good triumphs over evil. Darth Vader is redeemed. Luke finally masters the Force. What send-off could have been better for a trilogy loved by many. "

    ""So heavy, Doc!" Who could forget Marty McFly and Doc Brown? This movie is one of the best films ever produced. If I described how it was done, I wouldn't be able to give it justice. Suffice to say that it has everything!"

    "This is probably the best Star Trek ever made. No kidding. It is better than the CGI-filled Star Trek movies. In my opinion, Wrath of Khan cemented the Star Trek franchise's status as one of the pillars of Hollywood science fiction. Along with Star Wars, this movie became the foundation of every science fiction film ever made."

    "The Terminator is one of those films you visualize when you think about science fiction movies. Time-travel, robots, cyborgs, and a damsel in distress. The film is well-executed and begs for more sequels. I'm thankful I found a good copy when I was redirected to this site. Now my family can watch this over and over."

    "Predator scared the heck out of me when I was younger and didn't even watched the film again. Now though, I picked up the courage to watch this movie by streaming it via Amazon. And I tell you it still scared the heck out of me! Imma buy the DVD copy and let my children and their friends watch this. :) "

    "I just finished watching the Blade Runner remake and it kinda fell short. So I ran a search for streaming sites that would allow me to watch the original Blade Runner movie. I was re-directed to this site and sent me a link to Amazon. This list is pretty accurate and the fact that Blade Runner made it to this list justifies my craving for watching it again. Good list, great movies."

    "At first, I was shocked. I was saddened then had mixed emotions. I became excited and I was elated. If you watched Robocop, you know you felt that too in various stages of the movie. Shocked and saddened that a good cop seemingly died. Had mixed emotion when his memory was seemingly erased when he was implanted in a robot body. Then we became excited when Murphy's resurfaces and he fought the bad guys. Then elation after the good triumphed over evil. A classic movie. One of the best of all time."
