Space thriller Serenity has beaten Star Wars to the title of best sci-fi movie in an SFX magazine poll of 3,000 fans.How crazy is that? True, the movie does have great writing but is that enough to overcome the impact Star Wars had on movie making? Of course, if it spawned better writing it would only be a blessing for the rest of the movie universe...
The top ten:
1. Serenity (loved it)
2. Star Wars (classic)
3. Blade Runner (very good)
4. Planet of the Apes (are you kidding me?)
5. The Matrix (loved it)
6. Alien (best haunted house movie ever)
7. Forbidden Planet (no opinion)
8. 2001: A Space Odyssey (most boring movie ever, incredibly overrated)
9. The Terminator (great movie)
10. Back to the Future (loved it)
They missed Tron, The Wrath of Khan and Close Encounters of the 3rd Kind.
