Movies

There's a call for votes in the Dutch newsgroup nl.kunst.sf+fantasy for the SF and fantasy movie top 50. Here''s my top 10 :

  1. LOTR : Fellowship Of The Ring
  2. Aliens
  3. Blade Runner
  4. The Matrix
  5. Terminator
  6. The 5th Element
  7. Merlin
  8. Dune
  9. Star Wars : The Empire Strikes Back
  10. The Hidden

Predator and Akira just fell out the top10. Shame, but it was a difficult choice...

I took the liberty of looking at the top250 of imdb.com, and producing its top10 of SF/F movies :

  1. LOTR : The Fellowship of the Ring
  2. Star Wars : A New Hope
  3. LOTR: The Two Towers
  4. Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back
  5. The Matrix
  6. Monty Python and the Holy Grail
  7. Wizard of Oz
  8. 2001: A Space Odyssey
  9. Alien
  10. Blade Runner

I took some liberty in chosing and dropping certain movies : Raiders of the Lost Ark is not a real SF/F movie, but rather an adventure action movie. Monty Pythnon, and Wizard of Oz are IMHO fantasy movies (there are wizards ;)

Next 5 SF/F movies are : Aliens, Terminator 2, Shrek, SW : Return of the Jedi and Terminator.

And here's the final verdict, the SF/Fantasy movie top10 of the nl.kunst.sf+fantasy newsgroup :

  1. The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
  2. The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
  3. The Matrix
  4. 2001: A Space Odyssey
  5. Star Trek VIII: First Contact
  6. Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back
  7. The Fifth Element
  8. Blade Runner
  9. Aliens
  10. Contact

I repeat my top10 with their corresponding final places :

  1. LOTR : Fellowship Of The Ring (1)
  2. Aliens (9)
  3. Blade Runner (8)
  4. The Matrix (3)
  5. Terminator (26)
  6. The 5th Element (7)
  7. Merlin (-)
  8. Dune (17)
  9. Star Wars : The Empire Strikes Back (6)
  10. The Hidden (-)
