There’s no denying that President Obama is one cool cat. The guy listened to Eminem to get hyped up for his DNC speech, enjoyed an epic birthday party with guests like Ellen and Paul McCartney, and seriously has the best playlists. And today, Wired let us know that he’s proving his awesomeness yet again by revealing his eight favorite sci-fi movies and TV shows, along with his reasons for choosing them.

The list is reportedly titled,”TOMORROWLANDS, A Sci-Fi Viewing List to Expand Your Mind to New Horizons.” Pretty awesome, right? So without further ado, here’s the full list:
