I could feel myself slowly sliding off my chair until I got to Blade Runner. 
I'm not into horror, love, or funny geek - just science fiction geek.  One 
glaring ommission must be Videodrome - Science fiction at it's weirdest 
topped with the cream of Deborah Harry!!  What about Max Headroom?  Sort of 
tele film though.

>From my point of view most of the good Science Fiction films have deep 
philosophical meanings / arguments under pinning a crust of hi-tech stuff.  
If you fancy a good read try The Philosopher At The End Of The Universe - 
Mark Rowlands.  It paints an interesting picture of philosophy through 
science fiction.

Anyway best get back to my 70-291!!
