Field of 64 - SciFi Movies - Finals

The last round only had 14 people voting, with nobody posting on that one since August. I guess cbs changes have chased off most of the people who participated in this thing. Anyway, here are the results of the last round. So I

#1 Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back 10 vs.#2 The Terminator 4

#1 Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope 11 vs.#2 2001: A Space Odyssey 3

#3 Terminator 2: Judgment Day 8 vs.#4 Planet of the Apes 6

#1 Alien 6 vs.#3 The Day the Earth Stood Still 8

Due to the lack of participation in this thing, I am going to forgo the Final Four round, and have this be free for all style round. You can only vote for one of the movies below. Will the Star Wars fans split the votes allowing one of the #3 seeds to win the whole thing?

#1 Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back
Vs.
#1 Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope
Vs.
#3 Terminator 2: Judgment Day
Vs.
#3 The Day the Earth Stood Still

It's been alot of fun running these things, but without participation, it kind of loses it's steam. Maybe I will just use this space to spout off on the stupid things that are happening in the world. All I have to do for that is pay attention to CNN so I can see exciting news such as "I wanna be Jen Aniston, Kathy Griffin Says", or "Women's Pet Peeves about their guy" Reall hard hitting news. Or hey, what about the President who is so interested in getting his health care reform passed, he jets off to Europe to try to get the Olympics in Chicago.

Section, great job in putting this all together.  Glad I got to participate/

My vote is for Star Wars:  The Empire Strikes Back.

This movei beats out all the other sci fi movies here because of it's radical departure from the other movies in the series.  It run thr gamut of intrigue, betrayal, human emotion, and sets up the next episode very nicely.  I loved it's dark tone, it's uncertain ending, and one of the most famous lines in movie history, "Luke, I am your father".  All the others are very good but this episode is one step ahead of the others.

Well I guess all good things have a farewell I've had fun thinking about these movies and rating my favs!

On to the show .... envelope please ... and the winner is Terminator 2: Judgment Day.

I am a Star Wars fan, but had to go with Arnold's Theme.  I fondly remember watching the first one over and over and ... you get the idea.

Tough choice between T2 & Star Wars IV, actually since Return Of The Jedi is my favorite Star Wars movie, I'll be different and go with Terminator 2......
