Science + action?

Robocop
Total Recall
The Hunt For Red October
Burn Notice
... and of course the Terminator, Alien, MIB, and BTTF series (of movies)

Any genre welcomed

Thank you very much, I saw Terminator, Alien, MIB and BTTF series, preferred Alien > Terminator

Did you watch Prey (2022) ? And Prometheus ?

I just re-watched Taken 1 before creating this topic it's great IMO

Westworld (with the exception of season 4),

The Mandalorian,

Game of Thrones (obviously),

Rome (series),

Alien(s) (all of them, except Prometheus; 2nd is the best one - see 1st and 2nd one-by-one),

The Thing (with Kurt Russell version),

Good, bad and ugly (with Clint Eastwood) (and his other westerns)

An idiosyncratic list from a film buff - films that provoke thought and explore the human condition via sci-fi tropes...

Looper. 

Source Code.

Primer.

12 Monkeys.

Ex Machina.

2001.

Blade Runner.

Arrival.

Moon.

The Martian. 

Total Recall. (Some hokey science, but still...)

The Abyss. (Love you, Mary E. Mastrantonio!)

Children of Men.

District 9. (from the director of Chappie, IIRC)

Silent Running.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

Minority Report.

Gattaca.

eXistenz. (have to get one David Cronenberg flick in here)

Star Trek II (because why kind of cockamamie list leaves out the wrath of Khan??)

Solaris (the original Russian one)

and last but not least, World on a Wire (Fassbinder, and definitely not everyone's taste...it also inspired The Thirteenth Floor, another good simulated world movie that's not The Matrix but every bit as good...)(am currently watching a German miniseries that also is influenced by Fassbinders WoaW, called 1899, which I can already say I like better than The Matrix, not least for its gritty and haunting sets and clever use of a period drama framing...)

The Thirteenth Floor is a special favourite - as noted by TheVat  it was based on a German TV series called World on A Wire.

If you enjoy VR based SciFi theme films, then you might also enjoy Avalon (2001) which is Japanese/Polish collaboration directed by Marmoru Oshii  - who is probably better known for his original animated version of Ghost in The Shell (1995).

Avalon was made on location in Poland with a Polish speaking cast and crew.  A stand alone sequel called Asssault Girls set in the same world was released in 2009

If there are sci-fi buffs here, any interest in starting a dedicated thread for the genre?

I'm in.

Flesh Gordon (1974)

One of the funniest films ever! The planet porno attacks the earth with the super sex beam!
