    Default Planning to participate in the soon upcoming SCI-FI tournament? Get in here! (POLL)

    Something that has been mentioned lately is the possibility of films present in the horror tournament spilling over to the science fiction tournament as well.

    I posted my reasoning in the finals thread:

    'when films like Alien, The Thing, The Fly were entered into the Horror tournament, they were judged on their strength as a horror film first. If they're nominated for this next tournament, they'll be judged as a sci-fi. If it's entered and performs poorly in the polls/gets eliminated early, we'll know it's lacking in that particular genre, in which case hypothetically superior films move on.'

    I wanted to leave it up to everyone though. If you would like seeing films like those mentioned above, go ahead and vote for the first option. If you don't want them to show up, the second.

    Leaving this poll open indefinitely.

    Cool!

    sidenote, jean; I cannot freaking wait to get this tournament underway. SF is my favorite anything. My horror knowledge is sadly lacking compared to the likes of you and Heather, but sci-fi is ... home <3

    Looking forward to some of the discussions we'll be having!

    It seemed there was a bit of hesitation with letting films appear in both tournaments so I wanted give everyone a chance to voice their opinion. Want to make the tournaments as enjoyable as possible.

    ps - I really hope your question wasn't rhetorical lol.

    I don't have an issue with that so long as it ISN'T a horror film that happens to take place in space or something. It really needs to be sci-fi first like Alien is. If it doesn't even explore sci-fi themes outside of being in a sci-fi setting then I don't see why it would even be nominated. I'd much be seeing something like District 9 or Moon advance in a sci-fi tournament than an Event Horizon or Species, where as a movie like Splice is a sci-film with horror aspects.

    There is so much overlap that I'd consider it necessary.

    True, but the two genres are practically married imo.

    They're siblings, but the movies they have together are not much more deformed than most of horror's other children.

    1.Do you see any NOMINATION connected with these examples of SCI-FI posters?
    2.Have you seen either of the films depicted in the posters?
    FYI NOT OF THIS EARTH is one of Roger Corman's best pictures & has been remade twice it must have something going for it.( I for one happen to LOVE this CHEAP gem. The BEST...NO. But high on my list of CULT CLASSICS.)

    The '50s had some great sci-fi classics but I don't know if I'd place Not of This Earth in the top ten. It's definitely a cult classic, but I'd place The Blob and Fiend Without a Face above it. The 1950s had great all-time classic though, like The Day the Earth Stood Still and Forbidden Planet, which in my book would challenge for a spot in the Sci-Fi Final.
