Scientists Choose Top SF Movies

Dave Bowman from 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Scotsman.com reports that sixty of the world’s top scientists have chosen Blade Runner as their favorite science fiction movie. 2001: A Space Odyssey came in right behind, with the original Star Wars movies coming in next. I saw the remake of Solaris — their next fave — with George Clooney and only just liked it. Do I really have to watch the older, longer version too?

The list of winners is a good mix of the latest FX budget-busters and dusty but respectable classics, but I have one question for Mr. Hawking, et. al.: Haven’t you guys ever seen Dark City?
