Favorite Romance and Drama Science Fiction Films

My favorite 50 romantic/drama films with science fiction/fantasy elements. Tried to focus on movies not on my main SF list, though some are crossovers.... they are just too good.
Very few movies before 2000, I need to dig around in older classics a bit. Though they need to hold their own today to be considered.

All suggestions greatly appreciated!
