Shameless self-promotion of my writing skills or lack there of.

More Meme Madness...

John Scalzi has a new book out called The Rough Guide to Sci-Fi Moviesand it has created a perfect opportunity for a meme to be created from The Canon from the book (not to mention a good opportunity to plug his latest offering). He is a great writer, so by all means buy his books when the opportunity arises.
Here’s how to play along. Go through the Canon and bold the movies you’ve seen. It’s as easy as that and very similar to a meme that Jerm did a few days ago.
So, what films are in The Canon? Here's the list, in alphabetical order:
The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension!(Remember, no matter where you go…there you are!)
Akira
Alien
Aliens
Alphaville
Back to the Future
Blade Runner
Brazil (We do the work, you do the pleasure)
Bride of Frankenstein
Brother From Another Planet
A Clockwork Orange
Close Encounters of the Third Kind
Contact
The Damned
Destination Moon
The Day The Earth Stood Still
Delicatessen
Escape From New York
ET: The Extraterrestrial
Flash Gordon: Space Soldiers (serial) (Oddly enough, I also watched Flesh Gordon. Go figure)
The Fly (1985 version)
Forbidden Planet
Ghost in the Shell
Gojira/Godzilla
The Incredibles (I’m a little confused that this made the list, but whatever)
Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956 version)
Jurassic Park
Mad Max 2/The Road Warrior (Of course, I have seen all of the Mad Max movies)
The Matrix
Metropolis
On the Beach
Planet of the Apes (1968 version) (You damned dirty apes)
Robocop
Sleeper
Solaris (1972 version)
Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan
Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope
Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back
The Stepford Wives
Superman
Terminator 2: Judgement Day(My son calls Arnold Uncle Bob every time he sees him because of this movie)
The Thing From Another World
Things to Come
Tron
12 Monkeys
28 Days Later
20,000 Leagues Under the Sea
2001: A Space Odyssey
La Voyage Dans la Lune
War of the Worlds (1953 version)

Wow, after reading through this list and seeing how many movies I’ve not only seen, but remembered, it makes me wonder why I’m not writing Sci Fi instead of Horror. Hey there’s an idea. Maybe I will do one of these for horror movies. I will have to get back to you on that.
