Also, Harrison Ford delivered them very well. I don't know, there's just something about his voice, and that situation. Great stuff.
And I felt that the voiceover gave the movie a sort of 30s film noire quality.

One of the dictionary definitions of perverse is:

Quote:
resistant to guidance or discipline
That's me I certainly won't be guided or disciplined in relation to a certain pompous bald Technomage!

I wish i hadn't remembered! The shilouette sex scene is really the only bit that sticks in my head. And a big truck thing with a skull on its front.

Re: Top Ten moments in sci-fi...

These are some of the most special moments for me in sci fi (series/films) :

Star Wars: Return of the Jedi - The infamous lightsaber-duel between Luke and Darth Vader with the Emperor in the background watching .. Oh man, I get the shivers every time I watch that scene, perhaps the Star Wars' saga's finest moment in my view

Farscape: final episode season 4 .. John and Aeryn together in the boat, just before being "zapped" ... oh god, unashamed tears of joy were running down my face as I watched that scene ... (I know, I am a softie .. )

And as for tears, Babylon : Sleeping in Light .. Sheridan leaving Delenn in the end .. need I say more .. hurts just the same every time I watch that scene, almost unbearable ... but at the same time a beautiful moment shared with the viewer .. a beautiful moment of sadness and loss .. Of course, many other great moments in B5, a fantastic series!

Other scenes I remember well are:

Aliens : "Eat this!" The Michael Biehn-character shoves the shotgun into the Alien-mouth and pulls the trigger .. always loved that scene

Blade Runner : the aforementioned "Time to die"-scene with Rutger Hauer's character .. very emotional moment that you remember long after watching the film ..

Close Encounters of the Third Kind : the Mothership arrives and lands in front of the stunned people gathered at the plateau -> communication through musical tones-> the Mothership opens and small aliens come out .. one of sci fi's greatest moments I think .. visually stunning, unforgettable scene for me ..

E.T. The Extra Terrestrial : the scene just before E.T departs from Earth in the spaceship, when he talks with the little boy .. one of several magical moments in that great movie ..
