Give me some of your opinions
IN for LOTR Trilogy
LOTR without a doubt. not just the best fantasy but the best movie EVAR!!
but ST: first contact and nemesis were really good as well for scifi.
ST: First Contact would definitely have to be my favorite Star Trek movie ever! Nemesis would probably be second. Insurrection was crap. All the TOS movies were alright, but really, TOS wasn't really my bag. TNG was the best Star Trek series, IMO.
I'd have to say Butterfly Effect was the best newer movie I've seen in a while...
For oldies, I'd say orig. Starwars, E.T.
Cold Equations (a sci-fi channel movie)
A.I. (only if you have kids will it not suck)
Reign of Fire
Harry Potter (even though I can't seem to like it)
Pirates of the Carribbean (can't go wrong with undead pirates)
Neverending Story (if you see how the story is told, and not just the plot, it's pretty )
you've got some good points..
DUNE, by far.
AI doesn't suck on any level unless you're too dumb to breathe.. the implications of being the last thing on earth that remembers humanity while not being human are pretty big..
They Live, campy, yes, but a great fight scene and great insight into subliminal marketing..
And where does Army of Darkness and Evil Dead fit in?
i can't belive y'all missed 2001: A Space Odyssey, one of the best films, let alone sci-fi films, ever made.
you also can't forget the matrix series
Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan
Battlestar Galactica (which I saw in the theater when it was new. )
Buck Rogers (which I also saw in the theater when it was new. )
And even though it was cheesy, Flash Gordon was important.
hopefully hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy, whenever that gets finished up
Starship Troopers is a good one and now that they are making #2, It might be better
WTF? What about original Star Wars Trilogy?
I have a tough time trying to decide which is superior between LOTR and SW4-6.
All very good movies.
shit, forgot about contact. that movie has some incredible parts. gives me chills
The rest of the movies were a travesty (I didn't even bother seeing Endgame). I also like Excalibur.
Lord of the Rings trilogy
The Matrix Trilogy was by far the best movie ever made...
... and if you shallow people would bring your eyes back into focus from staring at LOTR's billion dollar visual effects you would realize that the LOTR's is about as complicated and deep as a bowl of ice cream. The Matrix offered deep symbolism and, references to many different parts Myth and Religion. It also had a far better and more complcated plot. Where ever did Peter think of the idea of the evil forces distroying the happy kingdom? He must be a visionary!!!
like Matrix much
end thread here
"game over man."
More I forgot to mention.
Alien (the original or director's cut. both were awesome)
John Carpenter's The Thing
Two of the scariest movies I've ever seen. Yes, they both cross over into horror as well, but they are pure science fiction.
The Omega Man
Plan 9 From Outer Space ( Just kidding!)
