Poll: Best Sci-Fi Movies Based on Book

What is your favorite movie in the list?

All these sci-fi movies are based on books (no comics; titles descended by release year). When you love a book, few things are more exciting than seeing it turned into a movie. When you initially love a movie, it's never late to know how all the things were on the page...
