Re: Let's Name the Top Sci-Fi/Fantasy Films Together

Spaceballs is a comedy and it's on the list. Lot's of movies on the current list are more Action movies than they are fantasy/sci-fi. I mean, every movie is fantasy when you break it down to brass tacks.

And please tell me #46 is the animated movie. Speaking of animation, The Hobbit animated movie is pretty swell.

For Fantasy I'd give a nod to BIG FISH and FINDING NEVERLAND. For Sci-Fi, another nod to FRANKENWEINER.

That poster is really, really cool. The premise looks a bit silly but I heard it's a very good film so it's probably worth it 8)

I agree, it was a wonderful advertisment :)

BTW, It doesn't have much to do with the book, mainly because the book is a collection of several short stories, because it directly contradicts every single idea Asimov had about Robots (The harshest thing a Robot does to a human in all his hundreds of books is putting their hand on a human shoulder) and directly pees on one of Asimov's most well-known characters by making her a dumb, hot "babe" instead of the repressed middle-aged woman she was.

I liked Asimov books a lot and to say that the film was a dissapointment is understating it :lol:

But that's not a movie. It's just a 10-minute or so short.

Really? This should fall under family, or at least comedy. It's not sci-fi.

Let's Name the Top Sci-Fi/Fantasy Films Together

Note that The Princess Bride and The Neverending Story are also on the list.


Okay, but this is like a Disney cartoon. It's not the same as Neverending Story or Princess Bride. It's about fairy tales. But I'm apparently in the minority, so I'll let it go.

I believe the last movie to be put on the list will be Timecop. Because at that point, there will be nothing left.

I liked Timecop. But then again, I haven't seen it since middle-school.

And Frankenweiner? Isn't that the one where the dog gets brought back to life? This thread has official jumped the shark.
