    I've read 31 of the books and watched 60 of the movies (40 out of the top 50).

    Read 12 books, watched 56 movies.

    I'm not a huge SciFi fan, so I thought I did well with the book list. Cyberpunk saved me. :hs:

    I was surprised that I've seen most of the movies, but I've only read a few of the books.

    33 books. 9 of the top 10, 16 of the top 25, and 26 of the top 50.

    78 movies. 10 of the top 10, 23 of the top 25, and 46 of the top 50.

    I didn't do nearly as well as I thought I would. Especially on the books.

    Not much into the movies, did a lot better with the books. Overall that book list varied between some damn good choices and some I don't think really needed to be on there. An awful lot of Heinlein, but not even his best stuff. Orson Scott Card definately doesn't need three entries, although Ender's Game and maybe Speaker are half decent choices. I'm more of a fantasy guy like Ace3, and like him the cyberpunk stuff, plus the dystopian works bumped me up to around 30 books. I also found I was very top heavy in the list, but I did recognize a ton of titles that I just haven't gotten around to reading yet.

    Scary for me in that I have seen 92% of the movies and read 95% of the books.
    I was suprised "The Weapon shops of Isher" wasn't listed

    I just finished reading The Door Into Summer by Robert Heinlein. Great book. I recommend it (and just about anything else by Heinlein**) highly.
