It’s “Time to Vote Tuesday!” 94

Today is Tuesday! and if you’ve been coming here for any length of time, you know that, for most people Tuesday is just the day after Monday, but for you it means that “Time to Vote Tuesday” is here!! YES!!!

What is “Time to Vote Tuesday”?:

“Time to Vote Tuesday” is the session of fun weekly polls which spark thought, debate, and intrigue! Each poll closes in a week with results posted on the following ‘TVT’!

Last week’s poll, Are You Ready For Some BASEBALL? has now closed with 30 votes. Be sure to visit and see which baseball movie is ranked #1 among the voters HERE.

I wish to thank you everyone that voted in last week’s polls, shared it with others, and made it fun with your comments!

In this edition of ‘TVT’ this week’s poll, entitled “SciFi Fanatics!”, takes a look at IMDB’s Top Ten SciFi films!

Below you will find a slideshow of the Top 10 SciFi films of all time as voted by users on IMDB. (To see the entire list of the top 50, click HERE). I was surprised at the ranking of some of the Top Ten and the ranking of films such as Blade Runner (#15), Avatar (#32), and Jurassic Park (#40)!

Today, I ask you, choosing from the Top 10 list on IMDB,:

Sorry if your favorite isn’t on the list. Again, this is according to IMDB’s list. Which SciFi film do you think belongs in the Top 10? It’s too bad Honey, I Shrunk the Kids isn’t on the list! 😉

Let me know in the comment section! Thanks for voting!

The poll closes on 4-17-12 and the results will post on next week’s “Time to Vote Tuesday!” 

Thanks for reading! Happy Watching!

  1. Well since you have Star Wars on there I’ll pick that one. But honestly, the Star Wars movies are more fantasy than sci-fi. Yes they have spaceships and different planets, but the ideas are based in myth and fantasy, not sci-fi. But because it has spaceships, it keeps showing up in these lists, like this imdb one. Now, I’m a massive star wars fan, but lets leave them out of these sci-fi lists and open up three more slots to give some other great movies some exposure!


  2. Hi, Terrence and company:

    I went with ‘Aliens’ and ‘Inception’.

    ‘Aliens’ has the good old fashioned feel of a ‘Red Scare’ Sci~Fi flick in outer space! Should have been the first film in the ‘Alien’ franchise.

    ‘Inception’ shows the possibilities of imagination unleashed in the ‘Real World’ of dreams.

    ‘Star wars : 4’ is Kurosawa’s ‘The Hidden Foretress’ with scads of Special Effects money thrown at it. Still prefer ‘The Empire Strikes Back’ for its character development and superior battle scenes.

    Kubrick’s ‘A Clockwork Orange’ is memorable in that it foretold Britain’s Punk movement a full decaade before it occurred.

    WALL-E?!!!…. Seriously?!!


  3. Tough choices T!!

    My number 1 is a easy…Matrix all the way. great action followed by great story. The second one is a bit difficult, I like most of them except Clockwork because I haven’t seen it and Wall E because it’s nit that sci-fi enough.


  4. Nice poll, T! It’s tough though, as I wish I could vote for 3 as I love The Matrix, Wall*E and Inception. So hard to have to drop one from the list!


  5. That was a difficult choice but had to go Inception and The Matrix, two of my all time favourite films. Like a lot of people on here though, don’t really understand Wall-E inclusion?


  6. Tough choices there! I think I’d be quite happy for any of those films to be winning, but went for T2 and Alien. Think Alien really opened my eyes to big screen sci-fi and nothing will ever scare me as much as Robert Patrick.

    Oh and feel I need to stick up for Wall-e. A great sci-fi film, which to me, didn’t feel heavy handed in its message at all. The message was there for the grown ups. The robots and great visuals for the kids. A smart, sci-fi flick that’s not just aimed at kids but everyone!


    • Wall-E just doesn’t seem to be a scifi film to me. sorry. Especially when you consider Aliens, Blade Runner, and so many others like them. Wall-E is just a cute cartoon. To me, part of the awe of sci-fi films is the intense sets built and equipment made/invented to tell the story and sell the believability! Wall-E just doesn’t do any of that for me.


  7. Love a lot of those films, including WALL*E which I hold one of the three best romances of the past decade (yup, I said it), but I’m a Star Wars loyalist. Voted for both Hope and Empire.
