Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Debate and Discourse: AWESOME POST in "SPLIT: sci-fi, genres, and whether or not they matter&qu
Oh and example: Gattaca. Really great movie (at least I think it is), but not really any action. It wasn't a very successful movie despite being a great sci-fi.
In fairness they marketed it terribly
Children of Men was probably the most recent hard-core sci-fi film and it did very well for a British film in America if I remember correctly. Before that was Eternal Sunshine, which did quite well (having rom-com elements and marketing those heavily certainly helped it.)
And if children on men is Sci Fi then so is every superhero movie.
Yes, but owning a hard drive full of superhero movies won't label you as a sex offender, as opposed to "children on men."
