One blogger has compiled a list of the most significant science fiction films of all time. As Darren Barefoot notes, it’s missing a couple doozies like DARK CITY, but it’s otherwise a decent list. I’ll be highlighting the movies I’ve seen after the break.
I don’t normally do lists like these, but since I discovered the part of WordPress that lets me hide things behind a break, I’m desperate to do use it.
Commence with the meme!
