It might be a struggle to do a top 100.

I might end up adding things to make up numbers.
Wow - that was quick!

I have a feeling I may struggle to get a Top 100 I'm happy with... after all, it took me three years to complete my Top 666 horror film list.

I can see all my sci-fi movies from where i sit at my PC.

Where do things like Harry Potter, Krull and LOTR fit in?

Are they sci-fi? Is fantasy like that allowed?

Potter. LOTR is not classed as sci-fi. Krull however is.

I think we may have to take the approach as we did in the horror list and leave it to the individual to decide. If you think a film is borderline then it's up to you whether you want to include it, but if no-one else sees it as 'Sci-Fi' then it might not make the overall list.

I don't really want to dictate to people what they can/can't include, as genre is open to interpretation to an extent, which we've already seen in the horror list with the likes of Silence of the Lambs, Seven, King Kong etc.

Just checking IMDb to see what qualifies there are so many films I would never regard as Sci-Fi this may be harder than I taught.

Oh no I didn't mean anything by It I just never realised how much ground was covered by the term Sci-Fi I'm still a novice of horror let alone other genres

Would Day of the Dead (1985) or Frankenstein films (Universal and Hammer) be science-fiction. I think they could be classified as such as they deal with science after all.
