The Chinese zodiac assigns an animal to people based on the year of their birth. Cool idea, but let's take it a step further. Why not identify with the best sci-fi movie that was in theaters the year you entered the world? Who wouldn't want to be able to say, "I was born in the year of Rollerball," or, "I'm a T2 baby"?

We're doing our part to make it a thing. Herewith find our picks for the best sci-fi movies of every year between 1975 and 2005. Check your birth year if it's in that range, and then decide whether we nailed it or got it all wrong. (If you have a problem with 1977's pick, though, we may need to have words.)
