I've tallied up the nominations and compiled the 'final' voting round which can be found HERE.

@Mongo: Although your nominations came after the cut off deadline, I did use them to try to eliminate some of the films that scored only four nominations to create a smaller final (a tie-breaker, so to speak). Unfortunately, it didn't work. :lol:

I know, I forgot a load of films (not Avatar btw, I've not seen it) that would otherwise have made my list. It's probably just as well that it was restricted to Sci-Fi only, since my head would probably have exploded trying to include films like Lord of the Rings and Conan. :lol:

Nobody said if The Pirate films were Sci-fi/fantasy?

Sorry Tiff, I didn't notice your question until I was tallying up the nominations this morning. Personally, I would have considered them as fantasy rather than Sci-Fi but I chose to include it (the first one) as a nomination, because I did miss it. :)

I'd say Fantasy adventure. not sci-fi.

One that I really enjoyed and totally forgot about was 'Outland' with Sean Connery. :roll: :lol:
