I think there are a lot of films missing from this list. For instance, where is 'The Sixth Sense'? - Mark Ryan
Somehow, I don't think I'd quite classify "The Sixth Sense" as scifi... - Nuwewsco 1st May 2006
Think science, think fiction and think milestone. This is a controversially defined genre, and most fans like similar fictions, but there should be some borders drawn. Where? I don't know :) For example, The Planet of the Apes is depicting a new world what the heros reach via scientific methods. I think it should be here.
I disagree with the fact that a film has to be a milestone to be included, first of all you'll never get everyone to agree on what films are milestones, secondly some of the greatest examples of sci-fi movies are almost certainly not milestones (I'm thinking 50s B-movies here). However, I did remove Dr. Strangelove, which is without doubt a milestone movie, because I do not feel it is a science fiction movie, I think it was a political satire (it certainly contained very few, if any, sci-fi conventions). Feel free to argue with me if you disagree. Rje 13:57, 7 Nov 2004 (UTC)
Why are awards listed on these pages? It's supposed to be a list, not a list with bits of trivia. It makes the list look a bit messy, awards like those should be included on the film pages itself as they don't really scream importance for the "list" factor. Andrzejbanas
- To demonstrate the films that had received some degree of acclaim from the critics. I must say that I am a tad irked to find those entries have been summarily removed, since it required a lot of work to put them in. I was planning a separate list for award-winning science fiction films, and the contents would have been moved there. — RJH (talk) 21:01, 20 October 2006 (UTC)
I added in a host of new Sci-fi-ish titles, many already to be found with write-ups in Wikipedia. You may not agree with several of my additions. (Daredevil? Spider-man?) But I'll leave such filtering for posterity. — RJH 16:28, 20 Oct 2004 (UTC)
The article's introduction currently has this sentence in it: "The following list of science fiction films include a number that are notable and all too many that are considered mediocre, including quite a few that have been listed among the worst movies ever made." Although this is undeniably true, is the tone encyclopedic? Is there a better way to phrase this? —Josiah Rowe 22:16, 27 October 2005 (UTC)
Additionally, just because a film has been rated "among the worst movies ever made", doesn't automatically mean it's not notable! - Nuwewsco 1st May 2006
- Bad can be as notable as good. I don't think we should automatically filter out the negative just because we don't like it. — RJH (talk) 15:56, 8 March 2007 (UTC)
Made-for-TV films list?
Should made-for-TV science fiction films be on a separate page, such as List of science fiction television films? I.e. should this list be restricted to films that had a theater release? — RJH (talk) 16:50, 2 January 2007 (UTC)
- Films on the List of Sci Fi Pictures original films page have been removed from this page. — RJH (talk) 20:14, 19 June 2007 (UTC)
