The CGI looks good because everything in the film is constantly dark.
It is not comparable to Avatar either because Avatar's not a Sci-Fi film anyway it's a Sci-fi 3D animation.
Here are some better Sci-fi's that are less protentious
How have you created so many sub categories of Sci-Fi and then failed to make any of them the same? And then attempted to say that is the reason it's not the best Sci-Fi film?
Isn't that a bit like saying a potato is the best vegetable when you are comparing it to the likes of apples and banana's?
OK, let's run through your list and see what happens shall we
I've not seen Battleship yet so I can't categorise that but I'm sure it's the same category as the likes of Transformers so we'll call that "Sci-Fi for the Now".
Donnie Darko is more along the lines of "Teen Sci-Fi".
Resident Evil is classic "Horror Sci-Fi".
District 9 I'd mark out as "Sci-Fi Documentary".
Star Trek is "Classic Sci-Fi".
Whereas Serenity is "Fan Fiction Sci-Fi".
Watchmen is "Gritty Sci-Fi".
Limitless is "Hero Sci-Fi"
And finally you've got Equilibrium which is probably best left as "Cult Sci-Fi"
So what sub-genre have you pigeon-holed Sunshine into then?
