Blade Runner, Fight Club, House of Flying Daggers, Shaolin Soccer, Kung Fu Hustle, Farewell My Concubine, Brazil, Kill Bill, The African Queen, Gone With the Wind, Amelie, Lost, Battlestar Galactica, Heroes, Firefly, Boogie Nights, Contact, Dr. Zhivago, Twin Peaks, Inland Empire, Life is Beautiful, Moulin Rouge, O' Brother Where Art Thou?, Oldboy..... to list a few . I'm a bit weak in the classics and gravitate toward movies made in the past 20 years.

Are you a Netflix employee?

I'm happy you joined Wormhole Xtreme! I'm toying with the idea of expanding the theme of 'space-related SCI-FI' to simply 'SCI-FI'. My thinking was that maybe such a specific sub-genre would limit the range of discussion, after all, there's kind of shortage of SCI-FI as it is.
