    I like how you put Brazil twice on the list, Nipples. But, would you really count Children of Men and Jurrasic Park as "sci-fi" movies though?

    Jurassic Park is debatable.. I guess, but I'd still put it in mine. And why wouldn't Children of Men be?

    Children of Men is fantastic. V For Vendetta's good, but Children of Men was way, way better.

    Sunshine was disappointing. Donnie Darko count as scifi?

    Serenity was good, but I thought it got a bit slow in the middle, and I really think there were episodes of the series that were better. Still River finally got some proper fighting, and it was great.

    Yeah there were episodes that were better. But in making a TV to film adaptation I think they did a great job.

    Yeah, I kind of wonder did any non-Whedon nerds enjoy it as much though.

    Brazil is my favorite, but Solyaris and Stalker are both dead on brilliant.

    And Star Wars, of course.
