New "Sci Fi Movies" Franchise Forum?

Hey guys,

I am polling to see if there would be any interest in starting up a "Sci Fi Movies" section under the "Movie Franchises" section, something similar to the "Horror Movies" section.

It would be THEE place to discuss all the movies in the vast Sci Fi movie universe, no matter how obscure. Predator, Alien, Enemy Mine, Logan's Run, and so many more great Sci Fi movies deserve their own section!

If you would be so kind as to offer your input by way of this poll, there is a strong chance that we may get an all Sci Fi movie forum section!

Thanks for your support. Votes will be tabulated, then sent to Raz after a 15 day period.

If you're talking about forums, I count 35.

The reason I ask for a "Sci Fi" forum is so that there is a place to talk about ALL OTHER Sci Fi movies.

Is it that unreasonable? There is a "Franchise" section dedicated to PotC, which as it stands, is only 1 movie. It got its own because a bunch of fangirls, basically.

On top of that, there's a section devoted to all other Comic Book movies in the section designated to Comic Book movie forums. There are certainly way more Sci Fi movies that go undiscussed than Comic Book movie adaptations.

Sorry if this poll seems out of line. Frankly, I am surprised at the results so far, and that the excuse is that there are too many forums. I think the board would benefit greatly from a Sci Fi section.

I wasn't even complaining about that, really. I know theres a PotC 2 on the way, so it's right where it should be.

It's just that a Sci Fi section would be really helpful for those of us that watch mostly Sci Fi movies, not just The Matrix, 24/7. There's alot more to the genre than that.

Horror has it's own little corner, Comic book movies have theirs, Action movies are pretty much "anything goes", but I think there should be a special place for Science Fiction.

If no one else agrees, fine. I'll take my ball and go home. I was just testing the waters.

My point exactly. There are also movies that are borderline Horror/Sci Fi then get locked up because some people "don't consider them Horror", i.e. Predator, Alien, Event Horizon, Jason X, etc.

The majority of sci fi movies can be discussed in another forum. Either horror, or simply the Movie discussion forum. I don't think a forum is necessary.

Where? In the "Mainstream" movies section?

There are just as many, if not more, Sci Fi movies as Horror movies. If the shoe were on the other foot, tons of people would move to have a Horror forum as well, would they not?

To be honest, you don't know how well a Sci Fi forum would work until there actually is one. As it stands, there is no place that would act as a good section to talk about ALL Sci Fi without getting bogged down by other peoples polls and and duplicate posts.

Start up a Sci Fi section and I guarantee that I will have it bumping within a week. I'll start a massive amount of topics, movie threads, you name it.
