Circuit 3: The Best Sci-Fi Films Since 2000


This weekend, the highly anticipated sci-fi thriller, Ex Machina, arrives in my neck of the woods. A sci-fi junkie from birth, I – along with many of you out there, I’m sure – have really been looking forward to seeing Alex Garland’s trippy looking flick.

Since we already ranked our favorite/best sci-fi films ever made, I figured it might be fun to put the genre under more of a microscope, and look at the best the category has offered since the year 2000.

If you’ve seen Ex Machina, I’d love to hear your thoughts on it (NO SPOILERS!!). You can also read Joey’s 3-star review of the film here.

My Circuit 3 for the best Sci-Fi films since 2000:

  2. Inception (2010)
  3. Avatar (2009)

How would you rank the films in the genre over the last 15 years?
