Cool Tim, have you seen Sliders? It's not a movie, not yet at least, but I think it's one of the best sci-fi shows ever on tv. Course, although I personally thought the 3-5 seasons were good they weren't as good as the first two. I like the original cast and concept. Also, I think Tru Calling is another good one, an underrated one. Eliza Dushku is great on that. I heard there might be a Sliders movie eventually. I think Galaxy Quest is an awesome movie. The Back to the Future movies are cool too. A lot of my favorite sci-fi movies are based on comic books, Batman, Hulk, Superman, X-men, Daredevil, to name a few.

He has seen them. I saw some pictures on a website. Tim said in a post that Spiderman was his favorite superhero.

Hey Tim!

I see you've listed Ringworld among your preferences...ever read the sequel? It's called Ringworld Engineers. It ties up most of the loose ends from the first book, and is a really good read, besides!

Mostly, I like stories about time-travel. In such stories, anything is possible. But I also adore alien contact, as well.

I don't see it mentioned, but what about Doctor Who? (Come on, cheesy, oh yes, but hey, the new 2005 series is awesome! Laughing )

HEY HEY HEY What about Star Trek-The Next Generation??? I loved that stuff on TV and used to watch it every afternoon. Before doing my homework (as a creative break so to say). The ship was stylish and so were the extraterrestrians. Didn't Lt. Worf look fabulous? And Lt.Cmdr. Data? I loved the mere thought of this android! I was happy when he finally got his emotionchip implanted that enabled him to understand the jokes he had heard several years before. I love the Star Trek movies!!! And I must confess that I cried when Data died to save his captain Crying or Very sad ...and of course the rest of the world!!! Wink

I'd love to have that replicator. It turns energy into whatever you want! And the Holo decks are great entertainment. I'd want that, too. Laughing

I have read a lot of science fiction over the years, and one thing I have always wondered, (and I think Douglas Adams was the exception) why is there so little humor in most Science Fiction?
I think that is why I enjoyed "Galaxy Quest" and "Futurama" so much. Most Science fiction writers take the future way too serious!
I would hope even aliens would have a sense of humor. Perhaps even a more advance whoopee cushion..????


Try the following: Piers Anthony's Xanth series (if you like puns) and Robert Asprin's Phule's Company series.

Matrix was a real eye opener and it hit me at a deep mental level. 2001 set a benchmark for confusing but cool. Pitch Black was quiet suprise with one of the best opening crash sequences I have seen. Love Dune.


If you loved the movie Dune, try reading the book. There's a reason it won both the Hugo and Nebula awards. The movie versions pale by comparison, especially the phony "weirding modules" in the older movie version. Herbert did a superb job, then messed it up by trying to write some sequels that never lived up to the first book (but made him lots of money, so I guess there was a justification for it). Wink

Of course, most of my favorite sci-fi movies are only secondarily classified as such. Things like Ghostbusters, Jurassic Park, Galaxy Quest, and the Men in Black
