All these sci-fi movies are based on books. When you love a book, few things are more exciting than seeing it turned into a movie. When you initially love a movie, it's never late to know how all the things were on the page. Anyway, love them both or one by one - it's up to you to decide:

What is your favorite movie in the list?

(no comics; titles descended by release year)


List: https://www.imdb.com/list/ls029613563/
Poll: https://www.imdb.com/poll/ZdTg0Qelk6k/

Another half (dystopy, apocalyptic, horror) of this poll is there.
__________________________________________________

Suggestions appreciated when the new title is very close to or higher than 6.0 rating and 20.000 votes. The complete list (from where this poll derived as a part) may be in help to rotate options on reasonable basis. Thanks in advance for all the interest.

MAthePA,

I am generally disappointed by adaptations of science fiction novels, novellas and short stories.

My vote:
Contact (1997)

When checking this poll, a potential producer may share your disappointment and let live some masterpieces anew ;)

Dan Dassow, hi again.
There may be a lot of voters who is generally disappointed and always prefer books. In view of this, can I somehow include an option "I vote for books" or "None of the list is better than book"? Or such option is possible only for images-based lists?

MAthePA,

We've had multiple discussions in the past regarding including a none-of-the-above option to a poll. Ultimately, it is up to the poll author whether to include such an option.

If you wish to do so, please include such an option:
"I vote for books" or "None of the list is better than book"

Polls are limited to 35 choices. The down side is that you will only be able to list 34 films in your poll.

I personally prefer not to have a none-of-the-above option.

None-of-the-above options tend to work better in image polls. However, you could use this title for your last (35th) choice.

Dan Dassow, thank you for detailed explanation.
I'll take the info in mind for further polls.

I analyzed both parts of this current poll twice more, and think they include all the sub-genres and options to respond to the wide demand. Moreover, I have no intention to make them virtually antagonistic: movies vs books.

PS: I mean neither "I vote for books" nor "None of the list is better than book" are needed here.

Dan Dassow, please, this pictorial quote is a kind of memento for the younger brother  Fahrenheit 451 waiting around here. May I improve anything there, if needed, to make it live? Thank you.

Now that the other part of this poll is live, you can change the link in the intro so it goes to the poll instead of the list.
Just make the edit in your list, and post a re-push request in this thread:
