    The Fountain is one of my favorite movies of all time. In fact, it is my favorite movie of my favorite movie director. But I can't call in sci-fi because it isn't.

      It has science fiction elements.

      • I've seen the first 5, only one I've seen recently was children of men. I know there are better but I usually stick to comedies due to the state of mind I'm in most of the time. I have been doing a lot of thinking in the last few minutes and I'm trying to fit movies into that genre...

          I was about to call my love for Dark City. <3

            Which? The scenes with the tree traveling to Xibalba were said, in the trailer, to be 500 years in the future (if I recall), but the way the movie was put together they read much more as being a manifestation of the spirit of the other two version of the main character. Now there are implications that (SPOILER AHEAD) it represents an alternate timeline where the main character discovers eternal life and lives that long, but the story never carries through with those implications.

            The Fountain was, to me, much more of a character study than a science fiction movie.

              I forgot to put Dark City, brilliant movie.

              And The Fifth Element is ************* awesome, you take that back.

              • Speaking of which, Children of Men doesn't strike me as a sci-fi movie. What else than being about 20 years from now would qualify it for the genre?

                • I actually rewatched the 5th Element last week and District 9 last night. D9 is the victor.

                    It's an examination of an alternate future. That's pretty much all it takes, especially considering that much of the roots of science fiction are dystopian literary works.

                    • The midget chick from Poltergeist was just taken off life support. A premature R.I.P. is in order.

                      Her role in that movie will forever be etched into my brain.

                      • So any movie that pictures the world as falling apart is a sci-fi?

                          Dystopia= science fiction.

                            • Pretty much. People tend to include those post apocalyptic movies into the sci fi genre. See the Road, Mad Max, or the Book of Eli.

                              It's all Sci Fi...a lot of people just liken "Sci Fi" to space or monsters/aliens.

                                Alright, I see. I'm not agreeing with it, but I get the point.
