4 Demolition Man Demolition Man

Out of all the cheesy Sylvester Stallone movies, this one is, by far, the most entertaining. Wesley Snipes is perfect in his role. - BKAllmighty

5 Alien 3 Alien 3

If you get over the deaths of hicks newt and bishop there is plenty of good moments also this was David finchers first film

6 The Last Starfighter The Last Starfighter
7 Outland Outland

High noon plus space doesn't equal bad movie

8 They Live They Live

RIP Rowdy Roddy Piper...may chew bubblegum and kick ass in heaven.

Another underrated Carpenter classic. - Myka

9 I, Robot I, Robot

The special effects, at the very least, are award-worthy. The movie came out over ten years ago and yet the effects are still top notch. It's one exciting movie too, of course. - BKAllmighty

10 Sphere Sphere

The Contenders

11 Futuresport Futuresport
12 Galaxy Quest Galaxy Quest
13 Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace

I'm glad this one is here and not episodes II and III. I just can't stand Hayden Christensen's Anakin. I'll take Jar Jar Binks any day. - BKAllmighty

Agreed at least this film had some practical effects and some really good moments plus it has a very underrated score

In my opinion I think episode 3 is more underrated but it not have on the list so I vote for this.I hate jar jar at the first but when people keep hating it I feel like why people hate it so much much and I feel sad about jar jar for being most hate character in the world and now I just ok with it - Thirdwind

14 Body Snatchers Body Snatchers
15 Flight of the Navigator Flight of the Navigator

The best movie Disney ever made. By a long shot. - RockFashionista

16 Armageddon Armageddon
17 A.I. - Artificial Intelligence A.I. - Artificial Intelligence
