Vote! Top 10 Faves

Okay, everyone, here's your chance to vote. List your top 10 all-time favorite scifi films, 1 to 10 (#1 being your favorite). I'll include a list below, but feel free to add your "write-in" votes too. Then I'll tally up everyone's votes -- giving each #1 vote ten points, #2 nine points, etc., and then put together a video of our collective top-10 with movie clips. How does one get the movie clips? Don't ask, don't tell. (Though it wasn't that hard to figure out...) Then I can give everyone a copy of the DVD. Okay, so I probably have too much time on my hands, or need more to do when I'm wide awake at 2 AM. Humor me...

Oh, and hope to see you this Sunday at the library! Sherril & Piers, c'mon down!

Here's some choices (alphabetical):

2001: A Space Odyssey

Brazil! Have you seen the 3-disc Criterion edition? Me either. I'll have to see if it's available from the library. Just seeing it on your list makes me want to watch it again. And of course I knew Flash Gordon would show up on your list! hehehehe...

Okay, I checked Brazil out of the city library over the weekend, and watched Terry Gilliam's original cut, and it was like I'd never actually seen the movie before. The studio edited version was completely botched! If you haven't seen this Criterion edition, you definately need to rent it and see the movie that Gilliam intended. It's brill!
