    I thought Primer was cool in some ways, but ultimately I just didn't like it this much.

    I agree about Primer. I didn't like it as much as I wanted too.

    Note: I edited the poll and changed "Max Max" to "Mad Max".
    I only voted for 3: Mad Max, Starship Troopers, and Gorjira.

    Same here, really. I thought it had some clever ideas, especially the idea that time travel is accidental and not in a wacky way, either, but...I don't know, it just seemed a little too clever for its own good at times. I love great time travel stories, so much so that I'm trying to write one, but there haven't been too many great fresh time travel movies in recent years, and oddly enough the ones that I've enjoyed most have been based on existing scifi properties.

    It appears the voters understand the difference between a civilian and a citizen!

    Voted:

    Starship Troopers
    Men In Black
    Primer (my nom)

    The rest I either wasn't a fan of or haven't seen. I've been meaning to watch Brazil since it made a splash in the greatest film thournament we did a while back. (EDIT - Watching Brazil tonight)

    Brazil is the best film on this thread. Maybe not most representative of the genre but the best film.

    Brazil is one of the best movies ever. I'm positive you'll love it.

    Starship Troopers works as both an action film and biting social commentary. Plus, it has Michael "YOU WANNA LIVE FOREVER!?!?" Ironside!

    Men In Black
    doesn't nearly get the recognition it deserves as a perfect blend of sci fi and comedy. There are not many duos out there with better chemistry than Jones and Smith.

    But it would be a crime if Brazil is eliminated and Men in Black moves on.

    It just doesn't have as big a fanbase. It's very niche.

    Not that niche, I don't think. It's one of the best movies of the '80s, I believe! And looks like it's four votes back of sixth place. Shameful...

    Primer is very good. Very realistic time travel.
