Top Ten Sci-Fi Movies / Books of Will MacMillan Jones

This is Will MacMillan Jones’ Top Ten Sci-Fi Books / Movies…

  1. Blade Runner (Do Androids Dream of electric sheep) Actually this probably should come first.
  2. Alien     Ridley Scott does with camera angles and lighting what other directors need a million special effects to achieve. And still does it better.
  3. Lord Of The Rings Trilogy
  4. Wild – I know it isn’t fantasy, but being able to walk that trail IS my fantasy, OK?
  5. The Hobbit
  6. The Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy
  7. Red Dwarf     My target audience…
  8. Stardust     Gaiman. Enough said.
  9. The Prisoner of Azkhaban   For me, this was the best of the HP books and the best adaptation too.
  10. The Rocky Horror Motion Picture Show. How did I leave this until last???

  1. I’m a sucker for classic 50s and 60s SF, in case you couldn’t tell.

    1) Forbidden Planet
    2) The Day the Earth Stood Still (the original one)
    3) The Thing (again, the original one)
    4) Fantastic Voyage (the original, yet again)
    5) The War of the Worlds (Do I really need to specify that I mean the original?)
    6) The Time Machine (Guess which one – hint: not a remake)
    7) The Man from Earth
    8) Serenity
    9) Mysterious Island
    10) Tarantula

    *11) Galaxy Quest

    * I don’t really count this as science fiction, which is why it’s not higher on the list, but it’s an absolutely brilliant send-up of the Star Trek universe, which I have a great fondness for.
