      Short circuit, Hardware, Salute of the Jugger, Enemy Mine. I loved walking into Azad Video in the 80s and early 90s. The sci fi posters were all brilliant. Glad Alien and Event Horizon are on the list. I always found horror film posters to be a lot cooler though.

      Crystal Skulls, the one with Harrison Ford standing in front of a big skull, whip in hand after a 19yr absence. Still looks badassss, even knowing Lucas had killed off the franchaise with his usual CGI-fetishism and basic contempt of audiences around the globe.

      King Kong? Ok so it deals with aspects of evolution and biology which is a science, but science fiction? Maybe its just me but I've never thought of it that way, its a monster movie, a romance and an adventure story, But sci-fi? GhostBusters is a bit of a stretch as well. Again they talk about science, but in the end its called ghostbusters! Its a horror comedy with some pseudo scientific ideas included but i don't think that justifies calling it science fiction.

      Still annoys me that whenever you do a countdown from 40-1 or whatever, you always put no.1 picture of the feature on the front page.

      Yeah that does kinda ruin the surprise a little TF! Also, you promised AGES ago that that whole "refresh page take you to the top of the screen" thing would be fixed! It's so annoying (especially on these top 40+ things).

      I've always been amazed and happily surprised to see that River Tam/Summer Glau is in the foreground in the Serenity movie posters; it confirmed what Joss Whedon final plans for Firefly were and that River was at the center of the story, even if Captain Mal Reynolds was the hero of the show.

      Josh, we do get to see the aliens in colour in They Live, it happens when Roddy Piper destroys the broadcasting antenna at the end!

      Love how the 50 foot woman is straddling the highway. Have you seen my car keys? What do you mean this isn't an off-ramp?

      Being picky; in reference to the comments for 12 Monkeys, there are twenty-four hours in a day, not twelve.

      @Bandit1 You are absolutely correct. The biggest giveaway is that this poster has the July 25 2008 release date on it - even though Fight the Future was release A DECADE earlier...! Do your research, dear TF chaps!!!
