Writer's Block: Future forward

What is the best science fiction movie of all time, and why?
For me, it's a toss-up between the original Star Wars, and the original Close Encounters. The special effects in both were gorgeous, and not just there because, "Hey, look. We know how to do special effects!" They were integral to the story. The first shot of the Millenium Falcon slowly filling the screen, the incredible light-filled spacecraft rising from behind that mountain....these are what turned me on to sci-fi and are two of my most vivid movie memories. Of course, then the tinkering came into play and spoiled everything. But the originals are two of the best movies ever in any genre. So say us all....or me, anyway.
