Subject: Best Sci-Fi Movie

Soylent Green my number one on the list.  I would like to have seen The Illustrated Man listed, and Farenheit 451

Subject: Re: Best Sci-Fi Movie

F451 is mid-60s, but very forward looking. :)

illustrated man is apparently 1969. and not on netflix! what's with that?

in putting together these polls i keep coming across stuff that rocks that's either late 60s, like midnight cowboy and 2001: a space odyssey, or real early 80s, like raiders of the lost ark and watcher in the woods.

i'm thinking i'll do a bunch of polls, and i plan to sneak in ONE 1980 movie and ONE 1969 movie, just to see if anyone notices.

i didn't vote for it, but whatever, competition was tight.

i was watching futureworld (1976), the sequel, the other night. not nearly as good but funny. and it stars peter fonda. when i was a kid i was introduced to the series through futureworld, cuz, like, it sounds cooler than westworld, which to a seven year old sounds all dusty and crappy and stuff.

OK, looking forward to it, and as for the nominees here, I will add that Return From Witch Mountain gave Star Wars a run for its money.

Hmmmm......must think, on this one....

Would "The Dunwich Horror" count? I believe it was '70s, and I am a major H.P. Lovecraft fan.

i thinhk it's 1970, but i'd put it under horror. you know i've never seen it? read the story a million times though. i was big on HP in high school and college. it would have been cool if he'd been around late enough to write movie scripts.

Written By: Ebontyne on 06/30/06 at 6:38 pm

Star Wars. I don't consider Star Wars to be pure science fiction though, even if it does have interplanetary travel and weird gadgets... I often think of it as being closer to fantasy in its themes and tropes. You could easily class it under either genre. :)

I agree, but his ideas would have no earthly way to match the film effects with what went on in his head.
I also like Robert Bloch, August Derleth, and John Ashton Smith. (Who knows?)
