Re: Best sci-fi movies

Yup, I watched it last weekend and loved it. Just a beautiful movie to watch unfold.

Re: Best sci-fi movies

Any Flash Gordan fans here or Master of the Universe maybe.

Re: Best sci-fi movies

Some good big name ones:
The Island
Surrogates
Looper

And a japanese flick called Casshern is pretty bad ass too.

Re: Best sci-fi movies

Well, I have to mention the first ever, the amazingly weird A Trip To The Moon 1902 by Meliès. Crazy one.

La Jetée 1962 of which 12 Monkeys is a remake.
Sleeper 1973 Woody Allen at his best. I want an Orgasmatron. lol
Things To Come 1936
This Island Earth 1955
20 Million Miles to Earth 1957 This Ymir thing is wild.
Carpenter's Dark Star 1974
The Invisible Man 1933
It Came From Outer Space 1953
Invaders From Mars 1953
One of the best EVER, the great Farenheit 451 1966

And OF COURSE Barbarella 1968

Those are some of my old school favorites.

But azathoth's lists are great too.

Man, I freaking LOOOoooVE Barbarella...

Re: Best sci-fi movies

Thanks Punk, I also love Barbarella, don't know how I forgot it. I also didn't know 12 Monkeys was based on an older movie. George Melie was a genius I'd love to get a boxset of his stuff. Polished off the Kino version of Metropolis, just outstanding, tons of footage that I hadn't seen before.

Re: Best sci-fi movies

Oh yeah now that'd be insanely cool cause most of his stuff is hard to get. Well at least on DVD or Blu-Ray...

Re: Best sci-fi movies

Odd casting, but it might be cool. The preview seems cool, but it's hard to believe you could a hole movie of somebody floating in space.

Personally I'm more of a Flesh Gordon fan myself big_smile

Hahahaha Good one.

I heard minority report was the sequel book to the total recal book.

"Total Recall" is (very loosely) based on like a 15-page short story called "We Can Remember it for You Wholesale."  There's no literary sequel.

Re: Best sci-fi movies

This TV show was kick ass.

Stargate is my favorite sci-fi film of all time.

I also love Dark City, Matrix Trilogy, Event Horizon and any 50s-60s monster sci-fi movies.

Re: Best sci-fi movies

Yes Stargate is pretty cool. So are the rest.
