When it comes to sci-fi fandom, everyone wants to think they are the consummate expert on the subject, all-knowing and all-powerful in this movie universe. And many of you probably are. You are reading this article after all, one that posed something of a challenge at the jump.

Well, there is one movie fan out there that wants to challenge your fandom and expertise in the best possible way. That’s by putting a ton of movies together in one awesome sci-fi supercut to see if you can name them all. It’s six-plus minutes of greatness, with some of the most iconic scenes from some of the biggest franchises.

We go all the way back to 2012 for this one, so the last decade or so of sci-fi movies won’t be included. But are we really missing much over that span? Not really. For the best in this genre, we often look to the past anyway. That being said, no Arrival, Interstellar, or Dune in the mix here.

Were we right or were we right about this one? This sci-fi movie supercut really is all its cracked up to be, almost edited together like a single short film. Or at least one extended trailer for the best movie we’ve never seen.

Boiling down the entirety of the sci-fi movie universe into six minutes isn’t easy, but this comes pretty darn close.

And in case you were wondering, here’s the provided list of movies included in this sci-fi movie supercut. How’d you fare when it was all said and done?
