Oh, Phil's a bud. I usually see him and Kaja at one convention or 'tuther every couple of years. And yeah, "Girl Genius" is probably the second best thing he's ever done... (The first would be Xxxenophile, in my book.) If you want to meet someone who will blow your mind, you should meet up with the guy Phil based "Buck Godot" on...

Indeed. I would like to meet Phil and Kaja someday. Their Girl Genius comic cracks me up. I'll try to check out Xxxenophile.

Well Star Trek is Sci-fi and hard one at that too since it's futuristic stuff.

There isn't a chance in hell I would make a top 100 for anything. That's good wank time wasted right there folks.

I'll just say that the new Star Trek is in my top 10 all-time.

1. Der Frau in Du Mond: (1929) Fritz Lang. When you realize just how long ago this movie was shot, even before the Great Depression, you have to marvel at just how accurate it was in it's depiction of space travel. Unfortunatley, Mr. Lang blows it in the final reels, by suggesting there is air on the moon.

2. Things to Come (1936)

3. Destination Moon: George Pal. Again, an attempt at creating a scientifically accurate deprction of space travel.

4. The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951) For it's time, it was real science fiction. Given the one fantastic element, the arrival of an advanced alien on Erath, pretty much everything is plausible.

5. Forbidden Planet. (1956) This one is a boarderline case. It really depends on the invention of the "hyperdrive"

6. 2001: A Space Odessy.

7. The Andromeda Strain.

8. Charly

9. THX 1138

10. Solaris (2004) Again, a boarderline film, but it's a personal favorite.
You have good taste fan. Those are some topnotch films!

All things Trek come first, I did enjoy the Star Wars films as well. After that, I have a penchant for classic sci-fi such as the original "The Thing" (From Another World), the original version of "The Day The Earth Stood Still", "Forbidden Planet", "Godzilla, King Of The Monsters", "2001: A Space Oddessy", "Silent Running", "Planet Of The Apes" (original only), "Blade Runner" and "Barbarella" (just for fun).

MST3K was one hell of a great show.

MH,

Come to think of it, I'd probably add the original "Thing" to my list as well. It's not just one of the best science fiction films of all time... it's one of the best films ever made, period!
