I would add Men In Black to my list because I'm unsophisticated, uncultured and found the movie amusing. Some good films on your list though. I haven't heard of a lot of them because I'm not a sci-fi aficionado. Good conversation starter though.
And I rather liked the newer Planet of the Apes movies.
The very latest versions are pretty good but looking at the original film - it was brilliant and shocking and very well done with an excellent twist. Based on a pretty good book - Monkey Planet by Pierre Boulle who also wrote Bridge over the River Kwai.

Having seen the original when it was released (at a drive in I believe) I certainly enjoyed it but now I can recognize that although the idea was good the execution wasn't as good as it could have been. I am rather certain that they were not really striving for that either. However, the newer ones strive for the second part of that better.
