    Cool

    I love classic Science-Fiction!

    Anything is possible in the "Sci-Fi" Universe!

    Science fiction is a genre of fiction. It differs from fantasy in that, within the context of the story, its imaginary elements are largely possible within scientifically-established or scientifically-postulated laws of nature (though some elements in a story might still be pure imaginative speculation). Exploring the consequences of such differences is the traditional purpose of science fiction, making it a "literature of ideas".[1] Science fiction is largely based on writing rationally about alternative possibilities.[2] The settings for science fiction are often contrary to known reality.

    These may include:

    A setting in the future, in alternative timelines, or in a historical past that contradicts known facts of history or the archaeological record
    A setting in outer space, on other worlds, or involving aliens[3]
    Stories that involve technology or scientific principles that contradict known laws of nature[4]
    Stories that involve discovery or application of new scientific principles, such as time travel or psionics, or new technology, such as nanotechnology, faster-than-light travel or robots, or of new and different political or social systems (e.g., a dystopia, or a situation where organized society has collapsed)

    Planet of the Apes is a 1968 science fiction film directed by Franklin J. Schaffner loosely based on the novel La planète des singes by Pierre Boulle. The film stars Charlton Heston and features Roddy McDowall, Kim Hunter, veteran Shakespearean actor Maurice Evans, James Whitmore, James Daly and Linda Harrison. The script was originally written by Rod Serling but had many rewrites before eventually being made.[1] Changes included character names and a more primitive ape society, instead of the more expensive idea of having futuristic buildings and advanced technology.[2]

    The film was ground-breaking for its prosthetic makeup techniques by artist John Chambers,[3] and was well received by critics and audiences, launching a film franchise,[4] including four sequels, as well as a short lived television show, animated series, comic books, various merchandising, and eventually a remake in 2001. Roddy McDowall, in particular, had a long-running relationship with the Apes series, appearing in the original series of five films (one only via stock footage from an earlier film), and also in the television series.

    The Man Who Fell to Earth is a 1976 science fiction film directed by Nicolas Roeg, based on the 1963 novel of the same name by Walter Tevis, about an extraterrestrial who crash lands on Earth seeking a way to ship water to his planet, which is suffering from a severe drought.[1] The film maintains a strong cult status for its use of surreal imagery and its performances by David Bowie (in his first starring film role), Candy Clark, and Hollywood veteran Rip Torn.[2] The same novel was later remade as a less-successful 1987 television adaptation. A remake is in production, scheduled for release in 2009.[3]

    Currently watching "1984"!

    Nineteen Eighty-Four (sometimes 1984) is a British film, released in 1984, based upon George Orwell's novel of the same name, following the life of Winston Smith in Oceania, a country run by a totalitarian government. The film was directed by Michael Radford and stars John Hurt, Richard Burton (in his last film role) and Suzanna Hamilton.

    Anything about history or even fictional movies with a tremendous amount of lore behind them (Lord of the Rings).

    Have you seen this one? The reviews weren't very good, but I enjoyed it.

    The 13th Warrior is a 1999 action film based on the novel Eaters of the Dead by Michael Crichton. It is directed by John McTiernan and an uncredited Crichton, and stars Antonio Banderas as Ahmad ibn Fadlan and Vladimir Kulich as Buliwyf. The 13th Warrior was a disappointment at the box office, earning only US $61,698,899 worldwide.

    The novel upon which the film is based is itself loosely inspired by Richard Frye's translation of ibn Fadlan's non-fictional account of his travels up the river Volga in the tenth century and the Old English heroic epic poem, Beowulf.

    I like movies based on actual historical evens, as close to history as possible.
    The coward believes he will live forever
    If he holds back in the battle,
    But in old age he shall have no peace
    Though spears have spared his limbs

    I also have a fondness for "Spaghetti Westerns".

    Between 1960 and 1975, European film production companies made nearly 600 Westerns. Critics either blasted or ignored these films, and because most of them were financed by Italian companies, they called them Spaghetti Westerns. Fans of the genre embraced the term which is now lovingly used to label any Western made and financed by Continental filmmakers. Europeans have always loved Westerns and have always made them. As early as 1901, European directors tried their hand at this most American of art forms. The relatively few Eurowesterns made prior to 1960, though historically significant, never signified a trend and remain largely unknown, at least in the United States. People on the Continent relied on the American Western for their entertainment.

    By 1960, the production of American Westerns had dwindled due to market forces, and distribution problems made them increasingly hard to obtain in Europe. As a result, European producers began experimenting with home-grown oaters, mostly Spanish Zorro flicks and poorly dubbed imitations of American B Westerns. The one exception was Michael Carreras' Spanish-produced Savage Guns (1961) starring Richard Basehart and Alex Nichol, which proved that a well-produced, if not entirely original, Western could be made on foreign soil. Still, the majority of these films were not very good, gaining only a meager foothold--which began slipping very quickly.

    Science fiction. More specifically, dystopia. The best movies are the ones that can make us question humanity as it is right now, and make us wonder where we're headed.

    Historically based films are my bread and butter.

    Also, can "Clint Eastwood Movies" count as it's own genre?
