This past year, sci-fi ruled movies and TV. From the successes of Netflix’s “Stranger Things” and HBO’s “Westworld” to the Star Wars spinoff “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” audiences can’t get enough of the mind-bending genre.
Although 2016 was an especially good time in the life of science fiction, some of the genre’s more disappointing past flops are harder to forget. PrettyFamous, an entertainment data site by Graphiq, found the worst sci-fi movies of all time.
To determine this ranking, PrettyFamous considered science fiction movies with over 10,000 IMDb votes and ordered them according to their Smart Rating. This is a score out of 100 that takes into account a movie’s IMDb rating, Rotten Tomatoes’ Tomatometer and Audience Score, Gracenote rating, Metacritic Metascore and its inflation-adjusted U.S. box office gross. In the case of a tie, the movie with the lower inflation-adjusted U.S. box office gross was considered worse.
