A while back a meme was running around the world of blogs based on John Scalzi’s Rough Guide to Sci-Fi Movies, which includes a list of 50 particularly important or influential films. People were taking the list, marking the movies they’d seen, and discussing it. I never got around to it.
I was reminded of this because he’s started a similar discussion using a list of comedies from one of the companion books. In the interest of forcing myself to write something, I’ve gone back to take a look at the sci-fi list.
