Re: Sci Fi Genre

Well, yeah you could call it that. It is about this alien who steals people's blood. It is from the 1950s. I own the 1995 update of it.

Re: Sci Fi Genre

I thoroughly enjoy: Doctor Who (obviously) The Dresden Files, the original Star Trek with Captain Kirk, Eureka, Special Unit 2, The Twilight Zone, Battlestar Galactica, The Adventures of Tek Jansen, The Back To The Future series, The Blade movies and TV show, Heroes (if it counts) and Full Metal Alchemist (if that counts).

Re: Sci Fi Genre

fullmetal definitely counts. heroes isn't all that great in my opinion. eureka is a good show, have u seen the anime eureka 7? it's interesting. not sure if u could count it as science fiction, but it does have robots from time to time.

Re: Sci Fi Genre

As to shows: For a while I was into Stargate (both), and Battle Star Galactica. Not so much this year. Eureka's been a fun watch. I don't know if these guys count: but The Venture Brothers.

For books: THe Lost fleet, following that series. I've been getting into paranoid conspiracy sci fi / space opera, and hard boiled dective sci fi (if that makes any sense)

Started Full Metal Alchemist a few weeks back, working through the episodes.
Kind of a mixed bag.

Re: Sci Fi Genre

I'd consider Eureka Seven sci-fi.

Re: Sci Fi Genre

Lets see War-Hammer 40k, Aeon Flux, (yes I used to stay up untill 2 in the morning to watch) Predator, Wing Commander, Star Trek,Org. siries, Next Gen., DS9. The Terminator only the first movie though, Alien all the movies, Event Horizon (one of the best sci-fi horror movies ever). DOOM nuf said their. Would Resident Evil count as sci-fi? Judge Dread.

Re: Sci Fi Genre

Star Wars is the best.  My brother is really into Stargate, and battlestar.

Beast Wars is great, but I'm not sure how cool the new movie is going to be.  I have little faith. 

Matrix is cool, kind of burned out on that though.

Terminator 2 is good too. I think Alien 3 4 are terrible.

Re: Sci Fi Genre

I like the ending to Alien 3, just the scene where Ridley is grabbing at the alien queen before dieing.
4 was alright, the bit where I think its a general tricks the aliens in to the escape pod and chucks a grenade inside.

Re: Sci Fi Genre

Predator, even though it's been ages since I saw the first one.

Re: Sci Fi Genre

I like the Terminator movies. I think it was four that was my favorite. The first season of Andromeda was awesome, but it's been a long time since I've watched it. Ghost in the Shell is my favorite scifi anime for sure, and my all time favorite is definitely FIREFLY! That show is amazing. The dialogue, culture, setting, and the characters are all just...wow. I love it. The movie Serenity came out for it a while back. (I highly recommend it all!)

Re: Sci Fi Genre

Terminator four has not been released yet...

take it easy baby take it as it comes

Re: Sci Fi Genre

They're making a 4th one? Wow... I figured it ended at 3, since really the entire story is a loophole, meaning that the Terminator will continue to go back in time, and he will be defeated/victorious, and Doomsday will happen all over again, creating a paradox, pretty much tearing a wormhole in time and thus destroying the universe. Unless in the 4th one they end the war.

Re: Sci Fi Genre

I'm pretty sure that they are, or at least were, working on a fourth movie. Of couse, I could be wrong.

Re: Sci Fi Genre

Anything scifi counts for me, really...I go all-out on the kind of thing. Actually wrote my college essay about the genre, and apparently they liked it...

To be a little more specific, I love Star Wars (obviously), Battlestar Galactica (the oldies are...eh, since they're just so campy, but the new series is AMAZING), Firefly/Serenity, the Riddick trilogy, the Alien quadrilogy, Predator-related things, and Stephen King books

Then there's a whole lot of miscellany that I read/watch and enjoy: just about any scifi/horror/action movie ever made, and especially those horrible B-movies they show on the scifi channel on saturdays. Good scifi authors include Alastair Reynolds (obscure) and Isaac Asimov (not so much), as well as a host of others.

So, yes. I heart any and all scifi smile

Hey Gunslinger, good to see you back big_smile

Yes I forgot to mention Riddick, how shocking. I loved Pitch Black then The Chronicles of Riddick. He's one cool character. wink

Agreeing with everything there, I here thet they are in the process of making two sequels to The Chronicles of Riddick. In the first, he travels to the Underverse, and in the second, to Furya. Other than him, wwho could kill someone witha a tea cup?
