Re: the SCI-FI thread
Cinema, yes. Need to read some more sci-fi novels though. Blade Runner is one of my all-time fav films. Watched SW when I was 4/5 also, Empire especially is great fun.
In terms of sci-fi/horror (films) - The Thing, The Fly, Alien, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, The Terminator are all dynamite. And love me some dystopian, ala Brazil, Twelve Monkeys etc. And there's a load of solid anime out there - see Spirited Away, Paprika, Nausicaa, Akira, The Girl Who Leapt Through Time etc.
And 2001, obvs. And Metropolis (original).
