Logan's Run is excellent. Zardoz is, well, Sean Connery in a diaper.
LR is good, and well Sean Connery is Sean Connery, even in a diaper :rofl:

Planet of the Apes- The first is terrific, only die hard sci fi fans have made it through the rest of the series with me but I like them all (especially Escape from the Planet of the Apes). The new one was, flashier I guess. Can't go wrong with Helena Bonham Carter in a monkey suit though.

Soylent Green- parodied many times
Soylent Green is pretty good, and also The Omega Man (1971, Heston as well).


Serenity is good, and the whole Firefly series (Joss Whedon).

Time Machine (1960) - Rod Taylor.

The War of the Worlds (1953) - Gene Barry

Genesis II (1973) (TV) - Alex Cord as Dylan Hunt

The Andromeda Strain (1971) - but they changed some of the story, although the lasers were better than darts.

The Island (2005) - Ewan McGregor as Lincoln Six Echo/Tom Lincoln

The Thing (1982) is a great movie

And if you care to get the 'sequels' to The Thing:
Prince of Darkness (1987)
In the Mouth of Madness (1995)

i saw The Thing and Prince of Darkness, I havent seen MoM yet, but there's no plot similarities, John Carpenter just calls them his apocalypse trilogy

May I suggest the two Sci-Fi channel mini-series, "Dune" and "Children of Dune". They are both about four hours long.

Blaspheme! These are mockeries of the original Dune (which I'd like to add to my list of awesome sci-fi movies)

Dune- Sting in a, hmm, not a diaper, kind of a wing shaped thing.

I haven't seen the original Dune movie in probably 15 years. I remember the worms looking much better than the cg ones in the miniseries, but I might be blinded by nostalga. I don't remember enough of the original to compare well. I quite liked the new miniseries though.


Looking back, Dr.Who hasn't been mentioned yet? What error is this? Is it too obvious? Best tv sci-fi of all time.

Gattaca and Strange Days are also absent. As are eXistenZ and Cube for some Canadian content. Oh, I'd forgotten about Dark City as well.

The last time I went to the movies, some uncouth man behind me coughed a hunk of phlegm into my hair.:eek: :cry: :mad:
This happens when watching movies in my living room as well, I don't know who keeps inviting that guy :yuck:

The original Dr. Who or the new series on Sci-Fi channel?

I loved the Cube. Wasn't there a Cube Two as well?

I can't speak for the David Tennant series (I haven't seen it yet). Otherwise all of it is good. Opinions vary though, I have a few friends that were traumatized as children from watching Dr. Who that it's brown trousers time when they hear the themesong. :bugeye:

Some say it's best viewed while cowering behind the sofa, but that's sheer folly unless you like being snuck up on by Daleks. I prefer to build a sofa cushion and blanket fort in front of the sofa so the sofa covered my back. It's closer to the immediate danger, but I'm terribly brave.

Yea, Cube 2:Hypercube. Best to forget it even exists. They set it up for a Cube Cubed sequel (that would have been my name for it at least) but that hasn't arrived yet that I know of). A sequel may end up justifying the second ones existance, but it would have to do an amazing job of wrapping things up.

I can synopsize Dark City in exactly six words:



Truman's World run by the Borg
