‘Ode to Sci-Fi’ TTT, #RRSciFiMonth


This week over at The Broke and Bookish the topic for discussion is:

‘Thanksgiving themed Freebie’

So, I decided to go for something different this week.  For Thanksgiving, rather than focus on books I figured wouldn’t everybody just love to spend a little time over the holidays watching some awesome films?  Right?  You know you would.  And, I figured as this is also SciFiMonth why not make these all sci fi spectaculars!  It’s almost like I have a plan.  Without further ado:

  1. Star Wars – I love Star Wars – although, I have to be precise – I like the original three films best.  I can’t help it.  There it is – judge away.
  2. Star Trek – I love the most recent films – Star Trek (2009 and Star Trek Into Darkness.
  3. The Terminator – I think you should definitely go for 1 and 2.  I’m hard pressed to say which I like best between the two! Probably 2..
  4. The Martian – great book and very good adaptation.
  5. Interstellar – I thought this was really good. Epic even.
  6. Avatar – after a feast for the belly a feast for the eyes.
  7. Jurassic Park – don’t know if this is sci fi or not – but I do know it’s good.
  8. Aliens.  No explanation needed. Scary!
  9. Back to the Future – you have to love this crazy series and it’s perfect for holiday watching.
  10. Guardians of the Galaxy – I am Groot, and, also, Chris Pratt.

There are loads more out there but I’m sticking with 10.

    Great choices. Back to the Future is great family fun. The Martian is also fantastic. I’ve taken to recommending it to friends and they have enjoyed it. Alien or Aliens… Tough choice. The first is the better film…

    Here’s two that would make my list: John Carpenter’s The Thing and Blade Runner.

      Actually I’m a maniac – I prefer Alien so I’m not sure why I’ve put Aliens (although I like that too!) Got a bit carried away the keyboard obviously.

      I thought of the Thing – I love that film.

      Would you believe that I don’t think I’ve ever fully watched Blade Runner! Bad. I need to change that!

    I’m super thankful for aliens too. And any kind of space books. They’re awesome. Also dinosaurs. My TTT.

    • @lynnsbooks

      Thanks. Imagine how boring tv and fiction would be without aliens – and Dinosaurs!

    Love this topic and so many awesome choices! I really enjoy the reboot Star Trek films as well. Jurassic Park is an excellent choice for a Thanksgiving film.

    • @lynnsbooks

      Jurassic Park is such a great movie – even now when you look back at it. I love it!
      Lynn 😀

    For those of us who love books, movies are a natural choice, too.

    Here are the things I am thankful for!

    • @lynnsbooks

      You have to watch movies over the holiday period – in fact I think it’s the law – and we don’t want to go breaking the law now do we!
      Lynn 😀

    Great topic! I love all you choices, I don’t even know which I’d pick as an overall favorite. But I haven’t seen the Martian yet, so maybe that’s next:-)

    • @lynnsbooks

      It’s really good and I think they’ve done a good job of adapting it to screen.
      Lynn 😀

  6. SciFi and Scary

    Great choices for the most part 🙂 Jurassic Park movie is better than the book! Here’s mine

    • @lynnsbooks

      I haven’t read the Jurassic Park book to be honest – in fact it was only recently that I realised it was a book. I wouldn’t have gone back to read it though having seen the movie already – I can’t get my head around reading the book after having watched the film. Has to be the other way around!

  7. Tori @ InToriLex

    Interstellar was a epic movie, great list !! Have a Happy Thanksgiving! Here’s my Top Ten Tuesday

  8. Leona

    Nice one! Tag me in, I’m with you with pretty much all of those 🙂

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yeah, holidays, you have to sit and chill with some good films!
      Lynn 😀

      • Leona

        Thinking of doing a LOTR marathon, maybe the first couple seasons of the Game of Thrones!

      • @lynnsbooks

        Yeah, I love doing that! Marathon film watching.
        Lynn 😀

  9. Joey @ thoughts and afterthoughts

    I feel like I only remember the original Star Wars trilogy (so I guess that’s also the same as preferring the original? LOL). Interstellar hurt my head but got me right in the feels 😦

    Joey via. thoughts and afterthoughts.

    • @lynnsbooks

      I think you have to watch Interstellar more than once – at least I did!
      Lynn 😀

  10. proxyfish

    Ahh Jurassic Park ❤ ❤ ❤ My love for you will never diminish!

  11. Sharry

    You’ve got the staples of sci-fi up there (but no Serenity??). I love LOVE the creepiness and even the odd campyness of some of the Alien films. Ripley is AWESOME.

    • @lynnsbooks

      There are such a lot of good sci fi films – I couldn’t fit them all on!! I actually meant to put Alien on the list instead of Aliens – not because I don’t like Aliens but because I think Alien is the best.
      Lynn 😀

  12. Sharry

    Also interstellar – wow, blown away by that one!! Love it~

  13. maddalena@spaceandsorcery

    Groot forever… 🙂

  14. Mogsy @ BiblioSanctum

    You love the original three Star Wars films best – as in the original trilogy from the 70s, 80s? I wouldn’t judge you for that. If you’d said the prequel trilogy, THEN I might have…lol, just joking! 😉

    • @lynnsbooks

      Haha – I actually have arguments with people about it (well, adult discussions, let’s call them).
      Lynn 😀

  15. jessicabookworm

    This is an amazing list; I have seen and loved them all except The Martian. And U certainly won’t be judging because I adore the original Star Wars films too. The new ones were good but just don’t have the same place in my heart.

    • @lynnsbooks

      The original Star Wars films are so good. Definitely have a massive soft spot for them.
      Lynn 😀
