In space, no one can hear you . .

space8But here on earth, they can. Interesting bit of news. It seems that some of the world’s foremost scientists were interviewed and picked their favorite sci-fi films and sci-fi authors.

“Blade Runner” tops the list of sci-fi films. They are, in order:
1) Blade Runner (1982) — Dir. Ridley Scott
2) 2001: A Space Oddesy(1968) — Dir. Stanley Kubrick
3) Star Wars (1977) / The Empire Strikes Back (1980) — Dir. George Lucas
4) Alien (1979) — Dir. Ridley Scott
5) Solaris (1972) — Dir. Andrei Tarkovsky
6) The Terminator (1984) / Terminator 2: Judgement Day (1991) — Dir. Jim Cameron
7) The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951) — Dir. Robert Wise
8) War of the Worlds (1953) — Dir: Byron Haskin
9) The Matrix (1999) Dir: Andy & Larry Wachowski
10) Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977) — Dir. Steven Spielberg

Pretty close to my own list of top sci-fi films. These are not just good sci-fi films, they are good films in general. Interesting characters, explosive action, good stories, etc. If you have not seen one or more of these, I suggest you take a look.

Also, some other interesting things happened today. Really, probably more important than what I lead with but oh well. Looks like their might be some piece and quiet in Najaf yet. Also, it seems we might have to update those science textbooks and add another planet to our solar system. Pretty good stuff all around.
