    BTW, will this be including fantasy films (like LOTR, Dark Crystal, etc) or strictly sci-fi? The two often get lumped together.

    Well, I'm certain I'll disagree about what does and does not constitute SF ( with some thread participants); but I'll give this one a go. ( I'm assuming you'll go 1-8, 8-1 in the rounds. [​IMG] )

    - Walter.

    I'm going to keep the definition of sci-fi pretty liberal for this tournament allowing people to select any of the films commonly considered sci-fi, not just "hard" sci-fi.

    Although I risk losing my shot at one of the good Star Wars films, I can't possibly do without this one: 2001: A Space Odyssey.

    Well, damn, Chuck. I wanted that one... [​IMG]

    So, I'll take Kubrick's second-greatest sci-fi film, A CLOCKWORK ORANGE.

    Back to you, SteveGon.
