It seems like Sci-Fi gets raspberried more than others. Sci-Fi doesn't get recognition in the Academy awards too much either. This, I believe, is because Hollywood can't make a SciFi movie that accurately portrays and reflects the author's creation. Hollywood changes the story into something else. The SciFi title takes a beating and SciFi is labeled. Then when the judges see the genre 'SciFi' they are biased.
If the only SciFi film you ever saw was Leprecaun 4 or BattleField Earth How would you go into judging SciFi movies...:banghead:

This post was done in IE, When I first formatted my font IE went dumb and stopped responding then it woke up and was fine, copy and paste worked fine. I could use this for CoolSciFi but there are no tabs and I watch 5 forums at a time while also surfing my bookmarks. I downloaded the extension to open target in IE and I will try to use that when I need to copy and paste. Other forums are not having this problem tho.
