From the final frontier to a far off future, science fiction flicks are some of the most creative stories being made, and can show us the very best and worst of human potential, all against the backdrop of the cosmos or action and explosions - check out the Top 10 Sci-Fi Movies.

No.10: The Terminator

Arnold Schwarzenegger's famous tagline "I'll be back" is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to what's great about the Terminator films.
