    Default Best Sci Fi nominations + General updates throughout the tournament

    Ok everyone, here we go again! This time we're going to decide what the DT's best Sci-Fi movie is. We'll closely follow the template used in the Horror tournament, only this one will be structured around multiple votes (total votes per thread still TBD).

    For those of you that were following the announcement thread this week, we had some interesting discussion on the kind of things that constitute what a sci-fi film is. It is by no means a definitive criteria, just a reference point. We can always address films individually if need be.

    And of course, as we discussed in that thread, repeat films (films which were also present in the Horror tournament) are OK to nominate here as well!

    Enough caveats, on to the rules!

    Rules:

    *There will be a total of 128 nominations
    *Please wait until 3 other people have cast a nomination before nominating another
    *Please list the number in which your entry lands for easier compilation

    Once all 160 films are listed, we will begin compiling them and sorting into groups.

    Alright, here we go!
