The Sci-Fi Film Alphabet


From Stephen Wildish.

Very cool. I've got A, B, E, G, I, J, K, M (maybe), N, O, P, Q, T, U, W, X. What are the others?

  1. "D" is Dune -- I'm thinking Lynch; that kind of looks like Sting's Feyd Rautha. "V" is just that... the original miniseries, if Jane Badler's big 80s hair is anything to go by. "M" - Minority Report? "Z" is Zardoz. The image of Sean Connery in that outfit is blazoned into my brain and I've never even seen the movie.

  2. WA_side's right: H is Marvin from the film version of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. L is The Last Starfighter. I agree that M is probably Minority Report.

    I don't recognize C, but it should have been A Clockwork Orange.

    I don't recognize O or S. F looks like it should be obvious, but it's not...

    Z Zardoz, a hilariously awful Sean Connery movie

    Stumped on several because I don't have a memory for uniforms. M in particular could be a dozen movies to me. Also for F, vomiting white stuff just makes me think of Alien, which can't be right but locks up my brain.

  5. I think "F" is the Fly. I was just remembering the scene where Jeff Goldblum expectorates formic acid all over a box of donuts... Yech.
