NEW YORK – A new poll has named Blade Runner the top science-fiction movie of all time.
The June issue of Wired magazine selects the 20 best sci-fi flicks, and chose the futuristic 1982 movie starring Harrison Ford for its unflinching look at the "dark heart of modernity."
But in an incredible snub, Star Wars rated only 10th on Wired's list. The chief reason: bad fashion.
"After all, if Luke et al. are light years in the distant past, they why did they fall victim to 1970s fashions, too?" the mag asks.
The list is bound to be controversial because it skips many films sci-fi buffs say are classics, including: Forbidden Planet, Invaders From Mars, Metropolis, Judgment Day and The Thing From Another World.
And it also ignores many bad "B" movies aficionados adore, like Attack of the 50-foot Woman and Catwomen of the Moon.
Here are Wired's top 20:
1. Blade Runner
3. The Matrix
4. 2001: A Space Odyssey
6. A Clockwork Orange
8. The Boys From Brazil
9. Jurassic Park
10. Star Wars
11. The Road Warrior
13. The Terminator
15. Soylent Green
17. Planet of the Apes
18. The Day the Earth Stood Still
