  • You take the red pill, you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes for this list.

  • We're looking at science fiction films that achieved surprising success and or were much better than anyone believed they would be.

  • If there's a surprisingly good sci fi movie, you're shocked to see us leave off this list.

  • Be sure to let us know about it in the comments.

  • All right, let's get into it.

  • Number 10 pitch black.

  • They say most of your brain shuts down and cry asleep.

  • All but the primitive side.

  • The animal side David To ease action Horror film follows a group of survivors whose spaceship crashes on an alien world they soon encounter Deadly creatures that only come out at night, finally found something worse than may.

  • Uh, when the planets long night begins, they're forced to rely on violent criminal Richard B.

  • Riddick to survive because he can see in the dark.

  • Where the hell can I get eyes like that between it's relatively modest budget and lack of established action stars For the time pitch Black had everything working against it.

  • However, the movie proved to be a surprising success.

  • It doubled its profits at the box office and became a cult hit.

  • The film also helped make Vin Diesel into an action star and spawned two Sequels.

  • It's a moment we want to remember what you remember this moment.

  • Number nine Moon An astronaut working an extended solo mining mission on the moon learns that he may no longer be alone when he encounters a clone of himself, myself, for him outside Smart, where the still harvest?

  • Who is it?

  • Although Duncan Jones's directorial debut feature film was made on a small Hollywood budget of $5 million and didn't dominate the box office, Moon managed to turn a profit.

  • But it's true Success lies with its critical reception character actor Sam Rockwell's dual performance as the astronaut and his clone earned tons of a claim.

  • What do you think Test is back home waiting for you on the sofa in lingerie.

  • What about the original Sam?

  • Uh huh.

  • I'm the original Sam.

  • The film story also received plenty of praise, particularly from the scientific community.

  • To paraphrase another famous man on the moon, Moon may seem like a small step for movies, but it felt like a giant leap for cinema.

  • Oh, number eight Looper before director Ryan Johnson became depending on Who you talk Thio the best or the worst thing to happen to Star Wars, he made this intriguing sci fi flick.

  • The film follows Joe, a gunman who disposes of victims sent from the future.

  • But everything changes when he fails to take out his future self.

  • Yes, his older counterpart quickly escapes and leaves Joe in a world of trouble.

  • So do you know what's gonna happen?

  • You've done all this already has me.

  • E don't wanna talk about time travel shit, because if we start talking about it, then we're gonna be here all day talking about him making diagrams with straws.

  • Although Looper features some impressive star power, it's average budget and the relatively unknown director kept expectations low.

  • The film's major success at the box office proved that anyone who underestimated it was just out of the loop.

  • Number seven, District nine.

  • When one million malnourished aliens arrive on Earth, they're made second class citizens and placed in an internment camp.

  • What is happening to the films Documentary style leads it a sense of gritty reality even when the screen is full of special effects, Everything that happens feels down to earth.

  • Yeah, a sci fi movie set in South Africa that serves as an allegory for apartheid sounds like a recipe for controversy.

  • Instead of a blockbuster, however, viral marketing and word of mouth lead District nine to become a surprise smash hit.

  • I can't believe I get paid to do this.

  • E Love What you problems Die Number six.

  • Back to the future.

  • My calculations are correct.

  • When this baby hits 88 MPH, you're gonna see some serious shit.

  • Let's travel back in time to the eighties.

  • For a moment, Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale have been shopping around a script for a time travel movie that's been rejected at least 40 times, but eventually it gets made.

  • While Zemeckis and Gale truly believed in the project, they never could have expected it to become the pop culture juggernaut people know and love today.

  • Wait a minute, Doc.

  • Why are you telling me that you built a time machine?

  • How does a DeLorean?

  • The way I see it, if you're gonna build a time machine into a car, why not?

  • Doing some style back to the future?

  • Received numerous accolades and spawned multiple Sequels, a TV cartoon and even a musical.

  • Marty and Doc Brown's time traveling adventure has become a crucial sci fi staple.

  • It's hard to believe there was ever any doubt that it would be 1.21 gigawatts of fun.

  • What number five Blade Runner, 2049 look atyou.

  • Quiet Now I have to think.

  • Sure, this film was a box office disappointment, but then again, so was the original Blade Runner.

  • Although it performed poorly in theaters, the first Blade Runner has since been hailed as a masterpiece.

  • All those moments will be lost in time like tears and write anything with that kind of reputation is gonna be a tough act to follow, especially since the film had a new director and added another writer to the script.

  • Fortunately, critics loved Blade Runner, 2049 to its stunning visuals and fresh yet familiar themes about the human condition added up to a movie that was every bit as fascinating as its predecessor.

  • Did you miss me?

  • Number four The Matrix You take the blue pill, the story ends.

  • You wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe.

  • You take the red pill, you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes.

  • While Quiano Reeves had appeared in a few hit films throughout the nineties, he still was far from the superstar he is today.

  • This is probably why he wasn't the studio's first choice to play Neo I Don't Come Food.

  • In addition, the plot of The Matrix seemed pretty out there for the time, But all the doubts and everyone's minds were blown away by the intriguing philosophical concepts and groundbreaking special effects.

  • The Matrix, not on Lee, became a runaway success.

  • It also spawned to live action Sequels, with a third on the way.

  • What's more, it inspired many imitators and probably helped the leather clothing industry make a mint number three.

  • The Terminator Come with Me if you wanna live.

  • It's hard to believe that the tale of a robot assassin sent back to terminate the mother of humanity's future leader wasn't seen as a potential hit before its release.

  • Okay, maybe we see why people were skeptical.

  • How could that man just get up after you, not a man machine.

  • Terminator Cyberdyne Systems Model 101 It also didn't help that before this project, the on Lee movie that James Cameron had directed was Piranha to the spawning.

  • Excuse me, I've got business to attend to.

  • Back on Earth.

  • Even star Arnold Schwarzenegger wasn't sure if playing the Terminator was a good idea at first.

  • But the Terminator proved to be more memorable than anyone could have foreseen.

  • Not on Lee.

  • It jump started a massive franchise that's endured for decades.

  • I'll be back.

  • Number two E.

  • T.

  • The Extra Terrestrial.

  • Who knew the friendship between a young boy and an alien would resonate with so many people before E.

  • T.

  • the Extra Terrestrial became a cinematic classic, it had to overcome huge obstacles from its own studio.

  • When Universal made a deal to distribute the film, it became the highest grossing movie in history up to that point.

  • Mhm Since then, it has been re released in theaters, brought in generations of fans and immortalized Reese's pieces, one of these honorable mentions.

  • I made fun of ah, lot before it came out, but then I saw it, and it was actually one of the greatest action movies I've seen in a very long time.

  • Go figure.

  • So let's check out those honorable mentions.

  • And then we'll see which sci fi movie exceeded expectations.

  • The most Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

  • After Burton's panned reboot, this movie rose to the occasion.

  • Yeah, Star Trek.

  • This reboot boldly went where few had gone before remembering thrusters.

  • Mr Suman, just who is on standby, take us out.

  • Oh yeah, Edge of tomorrow.

  • A familiar time loop narrative was improved with epic action.

  • Come on, The ship is going to explode.

  • What are you doing?

  • Find me when you wake up.
