Lazy research states "Le Voyage dans la Lune, created by Georges Méliès in 1902 is often considered to be the first science fiction film."

I never saw it.

My first sci fi movie was Planet of the Apes. As a 6 year old back in the day, it set the tone for me.

How about you? Please share, but TV shows don't count- only that first MOVIE!

Well, those campfire embers are burnin' low and I hear those neo vermin stirrin' 'round. I suppose it's time to call it a night. Be safe y'all, ya hear?

DK - The first Science Fiction films I remember having watched were E.T,  The Dark Crystal, and The Never Ending Story. I and my sister adored those films so very much! As a matter of fact, we still watch them to this day! :)

Mine was Alien. At 5 years old no less and it scared the soul out of me.

Star Wars, but that's really a fantasy film, not sci-fi. Alien was the first true sci-fi film I ever saw.

My father took me to see it when i was a kid. Scared the crap out of me, but it started my love of hard sci-fi. I remember a lot of parents took kids to see it, probably thinking it was Star Wars-ish. When it got to the chest burster scene, the kids were all screaming and crying parents were leaving to go home.

Mine was actually Alien. I was around 7 years old, it was late at night and I was up and sneaking some TV in while my parents had a dinner party. It didn't scare me so much as it fascinated me. The scene where the Xeno opens his mouth to kill Parker, I thought it tore him in half for some reason.

I remember reading the novel on a trip a few years later and being so happy to make the connection and finally be able to put a name to the strange movie I had seen years earlier. I saw Blade Runner around the same time, my Dad let me watch it. Lots of Ridley Scott in my childhood, lol!

Hard to tell. Hmm, 2001 or  Battlestar Galactica, back in the late 70ties early 80ties.

Pretty sure I saw 2001, but it didn't grab me at that time.


Star Wars, then Alien are the two that I remember the most and the ones that literally changed my life.

The first piece of science fiction I saw was the lake scene in Jurassic Park, but the first full sci-fi movie I saw was Jurassic Park III.

Oooh! Really great campfire question dk! It seems like my love affair with Sci-Fi has been life-long, but my very first Sci-Fi movie was probably "Flight of the Navigator", which came out the same year I was born.


One of my younger sisters and I used to reply to requests from our parents with "Compliance!", like Max. ...*cringe* We were dorks.


...I guess it was either Flight of the Navigator or possibly E.T.

My older sister had to be taken out of the theater at the part where E.T. is running through the woods making that "Eeehhh!"  sound or whatever, because it really freaked her out, lol.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters Those Godzilla movies were great on weekend morning/afternoons. Being so young, I tuned out the plot and only watched when Godzilla was on screen causing mayhem!

E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial was most likely the first, followed by Wolfgang Petersen's Enemy Mine and The NeverEnding Story.

Then shortly after that, I remember seeing ALIEN and then Predator.

However, I keep The NeverEnding Story close to my heart, that film and E.T. quite literally defined my childhood.  


MemberTrilobiteJun-25-2017 12:34 PM

Well, here is Le Voyage dans la Lune (A Trip to the Moon). Less than 13 minutes long, apparently it's the first sci fi movie. Interesting as an historical piece but that's about all imo.



MemberOvomorphJun-25-2017 12:41 PM

The Black Hole. They should do a remake of it. I liked it alot.


MemberFacehuggerJun-25-2017 12:47 PM


I was fascinated by the door abduction scene, it was my first best movie memory ever 



MemberFacehuggerJun-25-2017 12:52 PM

oh yes The Never Ending Story, it was magical. I love the flying white puppy (forgot his name pardon me) , and I could never forgot the sinking horse scene, I still find it hard to watch that scene. 


MemberPraetorianJun-25-2017 1:37 PM

Jonesy - Falkor the Luck Dragon,  a dog/dragon hybrid one would think.  

Also, stylistically, Haku in Spritted Away looks like a dog/dragon hybrid, when he's not in boy form of course.
