Very subjective observation since all of them ARE sci-fi. While I agree that Deep Impact tends to take itself more seriously than most (even The Core) of the others I listed they all contain science elements to one degree or another.
How about The Day After Tomorrow? This is "based" more on scientific theory and even the main character is a scientist (climatologist).
Also could throw in another Mimi Leder film The Peacemaker. Just like Deep Impact it takes itself rather serious with HUGE scientific flaws.
For the record I like them all and except them for the indivedual "popcorn" value they supply.
