It is a bit incorrect to say "based on Arthur Clarke's writings." Actually Kubrik had Clarke write the story to make the film from...that is a little bit different.

2010 was only underrated by stupid people with no clue as to what good sci-fi, or movies in general, are.

The scariest things to kids about the movie "Moon" is that if you listen closely you will realize the voice of the A.I. he is talking to is.....Kevin Spacey

Moon isn't underrated. It has 90 percent from rotten tomatoes and an 89 percent audience rating.

I actually just mentioned Moon in the comments of a "hidden gems of netflix" video a few days ago. The number of sci-fi fans that have not seen or even heard of that movie is unbelievable. It is one of my favorite movies in the genre.

The movie "Heavy Metal" was unavailable for years after its release due to licensing issues (even tho' the soundtrack was available almost from the beginning) and built up a huge mystique. It's completely non-PC, totally over-the-top, and features voice-acting by John Candy throughout. Definitely recommended.

Funny how the majority of comments are about films not on this list. That could go on for eons but I think the point of this is movies a lot of folks never heard of. Moon is a fantastic movie! Can't say enough about that.

Primer should be labeled as the best low budget movie of all time. More honorable mentions: Gattaca, Solaris, The Abyss, Dark City, Snowpiercer, PI, Forbidden Planet and Repo Man.

Sunshine wasn't underrated, it was just bad. Terrible science, pseudo-mystical nonsense, completely contrived situations, plot and forced drama. Did not enjoy.

Glad you mentioned Strange Days which also features a serious OST with a cover of Doors's Strange Days by Ray Manzarek and Prong which is worth an hearing

Some of my favorite under rated sci-fi movies are Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow, Logan's Run, the 1960's version of The Time Machine, and George Pal's When Worlds Collide. There are of course many others.

2010 also has a nice little touch many people aren't aware of: the Leonov is the direct inspiration for the Omega-class destroyers from Babylon 5. I went to the theater back in 1984 to see this film, so the very first time I saw an Omega, I had a huge smile on my face.

Strange Days was WAY ahead of its time, it would be a mega-hit today. Vincent D'onofrio, Juliette Lewis, one of the Fiennes brothers.. it's also very sexual and very disturbing. It has one of the most messed up rape scenes I've ever seen. And MOON is really a metaphorical film about all of our lives, it's super deep and extremely well acted by Sam Rockwell. Two of my favorite movies.

What about "Starchaser, Legend of Orin" ?? I saw it with 3-D glasses in the theater and loved the hell out of it. I was like a pre-teen. It's animated and quite edgy.

AIR 2015 should be on your list....Two people in charge as a maintenance team to watch over hundreds of Hibernating people below a devastated earth . Waking up for only two hours every 6 months...aging only two hours at a time...The person at the end of the movie appears to be almost mad...insane....due to this regiment ....At the beginning it seems he was in his 30's..at the end in his 50's...2 hours at a time every 6 month...calculate that over 20 suspended years...soooo...did he live for hundreds or thousands...you do the math.

What about _Dark Star_ by John Carpenter? Not sure if this low budget production is still underrated, but it definetely was, when it premiered in 1974.
