I'm a SF Geek, Too 

Found this on The Anarchangel:

"John Scalzi, one of the first bloggers and a starting-to-be-successful Sci-Fi author in his own right; has recently published a book in the Rough Guide series: The Rough Guide to Science Fiction..."

"Well, one of his readers, another blogger has started a fun little meme. In the book, Scalzi lists what he calls "The Canon", much as literati talk of the canon of western fiction etc... this list is about the greatest, most influential, most interesting, most appreciated or obesessed over films in SF history.The meme in question is simple. Just take the list, bold the ones youve seen and like, leave alone the ones you don't care about and strike out the ones you've seen and really dont like."

There are several films I'd list that aren't here and some that caused me to scratch my head, but here's my list
