Top SF Films Of The Decade

I was kindly asked to partake in SF Signals Mind Meld which posed the question: What are your top SF/F movies of the decade?

It wasn't an easy choice. It wasn't easy just remembering what I'd seen! However in the end I narrowed it down to ten. Twenty would have been easier, but I wanted to differentiate the ones I really loved from the ones I liked.

Go and read the list, then let me know what you think.

5 Comments

Mine are:

Cloverfield
The Fountain
Serenity
Primer
The Chronicles of Riddick
K-PAX
Donnie Darko
AI
Children of Men

There were others I liked but for some reason or another they fell short of these.

And I hate the lumping of the fantasy genre with sci-fi. In many ways fantasy is the opposite of sci-fi. And also, fantasy really sucks.

I am devastated! I just wrote what I thought was a long funny comment with my top eleven and the thing said that I mis-typed the security code, deleted my message but I forgot to save it! Stupid me!!!! Aaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!

Well, this topic is so thrilling that I can't let it go, so in brief, here's my list:

Donny Darko
Star Trek
Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow
The Day after Tomorrow
Wall-E
Paycheck
The Minority Report
The Prestige
Stardust
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
K-Pax

I wanted to love Inception but felt that it was not as fantastic as a dream state could allow. Where were the flying demons, dream-magic, mutating people, wild sex scenes, etc that I have in my dreams ;) Perhaps they should have watched The Cell before making this one for some creepy-good ideas.

Avatar didn't work for me. The plot was too pathetic. The Chronicles of Riddick suffered in the same way. Both were pretty and action-packed but I just couldn't shut my brain off enough to really take it.

When they have Sam and Frodo hook up for real in one of the Lord of the Rings remakes, perhaps then I'll be ready to enjoy. Thus far the movies are too filled with their tedious self-importance to really care.

Obviously, there's a lot more that can be written. Hope that this comment passes muster. Love your blog!
