Destination Nerdout

I don’t know bloggers, so nobody asks me to participate in blogmemes. That’s okay. I’m going to make one up myself and I can play with my own damn toys damnit. No, I’m not quite sure why I haven’t posted in however long it’s been. Anyways: (via BoingBoing) a new book is out that has a list entitled “The Canon: The 50 most notable science fiction films in the history of cinema.” It was my guess that, as a nerd, I’d probably seen a lot of them. I was not incorrect – here they are alphabetically, the films I’ve seen in bold. Why should you care? I dunno, for some reason you’re reading this in the first place.

contact? c'mon…

i got 30 of 49 (not counting contact. i mean, really).
"Contact." One of the total of three times in my life I have actually severely regretted spending $6.50 on a movie. I might have killed someone at today's $12.00

Where is "Dune"?
Where is "Army of Darkness"?

What exactly about "Delicatessen" is sci-fi? I mean, it's awesome and all, but...
