I gotta join Ibbi when he says that he's happy to see Brazil so high on this list. It's incredibly underrated. It started off very slow, but then it started getting a lot of very high placements and it got such a point boost that it went from outside the Top 10 to #4.
The movie that was at the #1 spot the longest was The Thing. It also had quite a sizable lead over all the others, but then boom... it disappeared from ballots all of a sudden.
This poll really could have had a different winner. At a certain point, Alien, Blade Runner and 2001 were perfectly TIED. Like all three had like 235 points.
Children of Men was the surprise Top 10, for me, and it was never really at risk of getting out. It performed consistently throughout.
It was fun to run this poll, and it was fun to do this presentation. See you at the next poll! Thank you all.
- Jurassic Park is way too low. - Pleasantly surprised by The Prestige inclusion. I didn't thought of it as Sci-fi and omitted from my list. - Wished Inception would be higher. - Back to the Future just missed top 10 - I like BR 2049 but it is way too high. - Of course 2001 tops the list. Glad Blade Runner and Alien made it to top 3.
I'm afraid to say that I'm not a big fan of the overall results, but it's nice to see several films, like the two Tarkovsky's and The Thing, so high. Also, I'm pretty disappointed that I has the only vote for On The Silver Globe, since, even with my 25 points, it didn't even make the honorable mentions.
Time is an ally, not an enemy. Patience can sharpen even the smallest of efforts into a weapon that can strike the heart of an empire.

Interesting to run through this for sure. I had said I didn't vote as I don't feel like I have seen enough Sci-Fi to justify it, but it turns out I've seen 28 of these 50 films, so I probably should have just voted .
