Perceptions of greatness

Popular Mechanics has put together a list of movies:

When Arthur C. Clarke died last week at the age of 90, science fiction—hell, science in general—lost one of its greatest, most forward-looking masters. In his honor, PM’s resident geek and sci-fi buff analyzes the most eerily predictive, prescient films of the future. They’re not necessarily the best movies—just the ones that got the science right, or will sometime soon.
2001 A Space Odyssey comes in at number ten.

That's the only movie based on Clarke's writings in the list, but three of the movies are based on works by another author. Can you guess who?

Whoops, credit missed. Via.
