  1. At No. 15, that would be Daleks, surely, and not Saleks?

     

    And I’ve seen them all except numbers 2, 3, 8, 11, 37, 45, 46, 50 and 58. If Ihad choose a sf film to write about, I’d probably pick Fahrenheit 451, or Dune, or Until the End of the World.

    No Primer? A throwback to low budget/ high payback movie making.

    Not on my radar = 27, 28. Gotta check them out. I have seen a lot of these as weekend specials on tv. Must see Metropolis in the new intact form.

    Speaking of F. 451, Ray Bradbury said years ago that the movie was optioned by some guy named Mel Gibson. Wonder what the status of that is now?
