In the latest issue of WIRED magazine, President Obama lists his favorite sci-fi movies of all-time. Can't really disagree with many of these, but I still haven't really warmed up to "The Martian." Maybe over time, but doubt it. Click HERE for full article. Below are his choices with his comments.

2001: A Space Odyssey(1968)

“captures the grandeur and scale of the unknown.”

Blade Runner (1982)

“It asks what it means to be human,”

Close Encounters of the Third Kind(1977)

“because it is fundamentally optimistic.”

Star Wars: Episode IV—A New Hope(1977)

“because it was fun and revolutionized special effects,”

Star Trek (1966-69)

“wasn’t actually about technology. It was about values and relationships.” 

The Martian (2015)

“shows humans as problem solvers,”

The Matrix (1999)

“because it asks basic questions about our reality—and looks very cool.”

Cosmos: A Personal Voyage(1980)

“because it fed my lifelong fascination with space.”
