2009 Saturn Award Nominees: Best Science Fiction Film

well people, its that time of year again, where the geeks and freaks in Hollywood and across the old US of A polish off their wire rims and vote for the Best in .....well, everything Science Fiction. Kind of like a nerdy Oscars, if you will. What's your vote? seen em? What do you think of said films? Vote and discuss!

Iron Man, I guess, but none of them are great.

Re: 2009 Saturn Award Nominees: Best Science Fiction Film

I haven't seen either of said films. Are any of them science fiction at all? TDTES Still, maybe. Once I went to mass in a catholic church in Bangkok and the preacher talked about TDDEarthSS, and something about hope, so I guess it's good somewhere.

If I could anti-vote instead of voting, I'd anti-vote for the Hulk. Why did they make that? It almost makes me cry to think about it. The old Hulk movie is possibly the best superhero movie since... Spiderman. Or maybe spiderman came first. Who cares. It was good, anyway. And they shouldn't force poor old Eddie Norton to do movies like that. It's atrocious.

Re: 2009 Saturn Award Nominees: Best Science Fiction Film

Hm.. Id classify them all as solidly SCIFI, save maybe Indy 4. With EE, you got the omnimind computer that's running the world. With Iron Man, you have the comic aspect plus the idea that he's built a futuristic war machine suit ..... with science....fiction, because how he powered the suit is still fictional, so far as I know. With Hulk, you have another comic, plus the fact that the Govt science experiments created a mutated human - science enough for me. With Jumper - its obvious - even the novel (which is far better than the movie) is in the Science Fiction section of the library and bookstore - it's Heroe's-esque, with people with "abilities."

Indy isnt SCIFI.

Havent seen TDTESS yet so I've yet to vote.

Who are the schmucks in charge of the apparently piss-poor nominating process for this award?

Re: 2009 Saturn Award Nominees: Best Science Fiction Film

you just think he's cute.

on another note: TDTESS - It was utter, utter TRASH!!! Just as predicted. Keanu Reeves, of Wayne's World fame, strikes again with his boring monotone. Oh Jennifer Connolley - how we wanted you to shine through the soot and grime of this plot and poor dialogue/script! How you didnt! How far that means youve fallen!

On a brighter note, it was very reminiscent of the older time "scary movies," and as I watched this one with my mom (who also agreed it was utter tripe), we spent many a moment literally rolling on the floor laughing at the sheer comedy of the old school terror plot line .... (yknow the one. pod people-esque. complete with the deadpan.) This was only because both she and I had just spent hours the previous week attempting to explain to someone else how the older "scary movies" were all the same thematically and pure cheese.

Then we watched TDTESS, and we like "LOOK! SEE! PERFECT EXAMPLE!!!" (I may have even smacked my forehead and said "d'uh!")

On a final note: totally TOTALLY hated the whole tree-hugging, preachy environmentalist "science is our religion" message they tried to cram down our throats. What are we? 12?
