In continuing celebration of Sci-fi-tember, today we decided to host the Science Fiction Movie awards! But in order to crown a winner for each category, we need your help. Kati, Stephanie, and I all selected our choices…but we’re open to feedback.
Do you agree? Heartily disagree? Check out our answers and then take the poll below – we’ll announce the winners on Friday, just in time for the weekend. I’m thinking science fiction movie marathon…who’s with me? 😉
Best Science Fiction Book-To-Movie:
KATI: Jurassic Park (I actually liked the movie better than the book.)
STEPHANIE: Children of Men (I actually didn’t read this book, but I love this movie.
HEIDI: Starship Troopers. The movie is nothing like the book at all, but I actually like it much better. Not to copy Kati, or anything. 😉
All Time Favorite Sci-Fi Movie:
KATI: The 5th Element
STEPHANIE: Back To The Future—I kept debating between this and Stars Wars.
HEIDI: Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, since Kati stole my original choice…
Concept That Could Really Happen:
KATI: i, Robot
STEPHANIE: Children of Men (I know I already said this one—but I’ve read a lot of disturbing articles lately about birth rates and fertility.)
HEIDI: Hmmm…now I’m going to copy Stephanie and go with Eternal Sunshine again. I was reading some research about memory removal and how it’s already possible to target specific memories.
Most Disturbing Premise:
KATI: The Matrix
STEPHANIE: I think Kati nailed this one—but since I have to pick something new… The Host—I didn’t like the way they adapted this into a movie, but I still find the premise disturbing.
HEIDI: Twelve Monkeys
Best Sci-Fi Sequel:
KATI: The Empire Strikes Back (It’s the only sequel I can think of that I like)
STEPHANIE: Terminator 2
HEIDI:I feel like you both took the best options for this category…so, in the interest of choosing something new, I’m going to go with X-Men 2.
Most Unique Concept:
KATI: Sphere, which could almost be my scariest sci-fi choice, too. I think the whole concept is pretty chilling.
STEPHANIE: Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy
HEIDI: Cloud Atlas. This could also win my book-to-movie award.
STEPHANIE: 2001—I know a lot of people loved this movie, but I found it so disturbing.
HEIDI: Aliens. The worst baby sitters in the world forced me to watch this when I was about 5 years old, and it terrified me. I can’t really remember anything about it except how scared I was. Maybe I should go back and rewatch it?
Okay, readers, now it’s your turn!
