I voted other, but I was undecided between The Day the Earth Stood Still and Gattacca.
Lots of comments this week:
“I realize Serenity may not be the most hugely popular choice, but I like that it gave me powerful characterization and great dialog as well as really gorgeous special effects. And the opening scene where we first see the ship is gorgeous.” – Pete Tzinski
“Metropolis Metropolis Metropolis!!!! This movie is the birth of true Sci-Fi flicks. All other Sci-Fi movies need to lick Metropolis’s’s’ses 😉 boots for paving the way for them.” – Trent
“Event Horizon” – James
“Fritz Lang’s ‘Metropolis’ Chilling in its vision. yet hopeful in the spirit of triumph shown. The robots/androids are still among the best, paving the way for Asimov and Data. Blessings” – Richard Novak
“The Day the Earth Stood Still, because it’s solid science fiction and thoughtful social commentary as well as a darn good story.” – Alexandra
“My vote goes to DARK CITY directed by Alex Proyas.” – John C. Wright
“I voted other. My personal fav is “The Abyss”. It’s a great first contact movie; it’s jut too bad it did not take place in outer space.” – Kristin
Be sure to vote in this week’s poll about giving away books for free! (This is actually a revived poll…these days we’re getting about 5 times the response and it’s suddenly topical again, so what the hey.)
