I doubt I've seen any of these, but it's the "Highest Rated Sci-Fi Documentaries" on IMDB. That probably means user rated, not professional film critics. Though there appears to be 400 titles.

Melakon, its a very general list
Flying Spaghetti Monster, thanks
i think that its close... any more? about other space films? (btw, i'm more into the ideas & about analysing the films than a "making if" about the films).

Isn't there a BBC series called "History of Science Fiction"? Pretty sure that'll cover it.

That's what I was going to suggest. Part I ran last week, Part II runs tonight on BBC America.

The first one was pretty cool. About Robots and AI in science fiction films.

It's broken into 4 parts each with its own theme, the second episode theme is "Space".

Jodorowsky's Dune documentary looks very cool. It appears he influenced many sci-fi films in the 70's and 80's without even making a film.
