"Time to die!" No, time to celebrate, because 1982's Blade Runner was just named the best science-fiction movie of all time by Total Sc-Fi Online.

Yeah, take that Star Wars and Alien fans. You've been schooled by '80s heroes Harrison Ford, Daryl Hannah and the never-dull Rutger Hauer. (Sorry, but I never thought Sean Young was really great in this flick.) Here's their top 5.

1. Blade Runner (1982)
2. 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)
3. Star Wars (1977)
4. Alien (1979)
5. Metropolis (1927)

"As Deckard, Harrison Ford proved he could pull off a much darker hero than Han Solo, and Rutger Hauer gave the performance of his career as the psychotic, feral and ultimately tragic Roy Batty. A masterpiece," the editors wrote of Blade Runner.
