We have a winner!

Thank you all very much to all who participated in our "Best Science Fiction Movie Ever" week--either as those who nominated contestants, those who commented on our choices, and perhaps most importantly, those of you who took the time to vote!

After a week of careful deliberation, we have a winner....

...drumroll please....

The Empire Strikes Back...and the winner of the Fantasy Matters "Best Science Fiction Movie Ever" poll is The Empire Strikes Back!

Interestingly enough--Total Film magazine also listed their top choices for best science fiction movie last week. (They chose their top 50--you can find their list here.)  Their top 5:
  1. Blade Runner
  2. Empire Strikes Back
  3. 2001: A Space Odyssey
  4. Alien
  5. Star Wars
Let us know what you think of our winner (and Total Film's choices) in the comments--and make sure you check out the interesting conversation about what exactly a science fiction movie is in E.J. Fischer's post and the comments on it!
