I've become very disillusioned with current sci-fi movies. They've become very commercial, short-sighted, dumbed-down, and do not tackle complex issues. They're not even fun. But the older ones are really amazing. I recommend the following to start with:

The Time Machine (1960)

2001 - A Space Odyssey (1968)

Silent Running (1972)

Soylent Green (1973)

Capricorn One (1978)

Starship Troopers (1987)
