I don't have stats on most popular, but my picks are....

The Day the Earth Stood Still 1951
The Thing 1951
Alien
Galaxy Quest
2001: A Space Odyssey
Scanners
Colossus: The Forbin Project
Sleeper
Planet of the Apes 1968
The Terminator

I know there were many more worth mention from the '50s, but most of them I haven't seen since the 60s when they were on TV regularly. I suppose, though, that if they were contenders for the top 10, I would remember more about them. The first two on my list win going away.
