NASA names most and least realistic sci-fi movies of all time

One realistic movie that immediately came to my mind was “2001” [itunes.com, itunes.de],  which was largely hard sci-fi. Another one is “Minority Report” [amazon.com, amazon.de] for whose technology Spielberg consulted researchers. Both movies contain fantastic elements that probably turned NASA off and show how difficult such lists are to make. Also amusing that NASA files “What the bleep” under sci-fi. See their choices below.
