Science Fiction and Fantasy Movies

What are your favourites?

Here are some of mine. Dark City, which I've talked about before on this blog! So atmospheric and brilliant - and Rufus Sewell doesn't do it any harm either :).

The first Matrix I really liked - very stylish!

Gattica's another thant made a big impression among a sea of largely average and terrible sci films borrowed from the local video shop some years ago! I found it very moving.

Blade Runner is another classic in my book. Serenity, which I already mentioend in connection with Firefly.

Alien has to be the ultimate in SciFi horror.

And on the Fantasy side of things, the Lord of the Rings trilogy has to stand out for sheer scale, beauty, adventure, romance - it has everything, and all done brilliantly too!

Which makes me think of The Princess Bride, one of my favourite films of all time, whatever genre. It has everything too, with added humour :).

Over to you :)



  1. Yay Marie, you've posted many of my favs too!!! Some of the newer ones I've seen are, The Magician's Apprentice and Percy Jackson...I really liked those.

  2. I wanted to see The Magician's Apprentice when it came out - the kids wouldn't play :). I expect it's on DVD by now...
