    I came in here prepared to vote for 12 Monkeys because I thought it was the only film that had a chance to take down Shawshank. I thought T2 had more detractors. Now I'm not sure what to do.

    These are all good-great films, 2 of these are in my personal top 10.

    However, I feel confident making a case that T2 deserves to be here just as much as any of these.

    I agree. SOME great films there. Silence would be my top contender against T2.

    By all means, make the case, as I don't even see T2 being the best science fiction film of the 1990s - I'll go with The Matrix on that one.

    I was going to, but honestly I've been doing it throughout this entire tournament. I'm too lazy to retype everything

    If you look back at the knock out stages of this group though I've been singing its praises extensively.

    A T2 vs Matrix semi would definitely have been interesting though.

    What a landslide! This proves that the result of the Sci-Fi Tournament was just an anomaly... a glitch in the space-time continuum that has now been thankfully, corrected.

    Well, that vote was five years ago and some of the members who voted then probably aren't around anymore. I wouldn't call two-thirds a landline exactly, 36% is still an okay number.

    I didn't vote in this one and I put in the last second winning vote for Twelve Monkeys in the SciFi tournament. To be honest, I had a hard time picking last time and went the way I did because I thought T2 fit better under "action" than "scifi." With no genre qualification, I just decided it was too close in my mind.

    I don't know how T2 could be any more sci fi tho? Time travel. Cyborgs. AI piloted aircraft. Laser guns. Liquid metal.

    If anything it's more Sci-Fi than 12 Monkeys.
