- This is one of my all-time favorite films, because it's
one of the best pure science fiction, it's full of
atmosphere, and it leaves me with more questions than
answers -- in other words, it makes me think. Apparently
it has the same effect on others because there are lots
of thoughtful websites out there covering this flick.
Then of course, there's the author of the original story
on which Blade Runner was based, Philip
- Blakes 7
- This BBC series is quite a long one, following an crew of
renegades trying to bring down the Big Evil Empire. It
has quite a fan following.
- Terry Gilliam's duct-woven world makes
for an amazing trip. One of Dave's all time favourite movies.
- There are dozens of websites out there covering one of the best-loved
British SF series, but this is the place to start. Also recommended is Dr. Who
A Brief History of Time.
- I have to confess, I hadn't even heard of this British
Science Fiction comedy prior to ordering it in for the
store, on the say-so of several video guides. Dave and I
considered it our duty to see at least an episode or two
before we put it on the shelf (so we'd know whether to
recommend it or not) and now, when new episodes come in,
we keep it a secret until we've seen them ourselves! This
series is funny and despite being set something like
three million years in the future, manages to poke fun at
modern life and everything else that comes under the
scrutiny of the crew. If you've never taken a ride on the
Red Dwarf along with Dave Lister, visit this website to
get a sample of the humor!
- The Terminator
- Classic Schwarzenegger. Classic scifi. Need I say more?
- The Back To The Future trilogy
- These are best if watched one after the other. Set aside an afternoon and invite friends over.
