    It will be added also, as it is sci fi for sure. The Christian Bale & Emily Watson one, right?

    You should read some of Timothy Good's books mate. He's really knowledgable about the subject, and the books are mind blowing

    LOL...I've got all of Mr Goode's books, in fact in one of his books forget which one now he talks about a guy who was in the US Military as a weather observer who was all by himself out @ indian springs in Nevada where there was a base built by the US military inside the mountains for the tall white's and their children. He used to see them regularly, even rescued one of their lost children. That is the story of Charles Hall of the Millennial Hospitality books.

    Theres some great books out there on the subject.

    UFOs by Leslie Keane
    The Day After Roswell by Philip Corso
    Area 51: An Uncensored History by Annie Jacobsen
    Communion by Whitley Strieber
    Encounter in Rendlesham Forest by Nick Pope
    Witness to Roswell by Thomas Carey
    The Report on Unidentified Flying Objects by Edward Ruppelt

    The last ones I've been reading blur the lines a little bit between fiction/non-fiction I think they're steeped in something close to the truth is the Sekret Machines series by Tom Delonge, AJ Hartley and Peter Levanda.

    I noticed the list didn't contain the following:

    Soylent Green
    Outland (High Noon in Space)
    Fahrenheit 451 (Original)

    Soylent Green is an absolute classic, with an ending that solves the problem of mass hunger (spoiler alert of sorts)

    Outland replicates the good v evil, genre of the great American westerns of the 50's

    Fahrenheit 451 - the temperature to burn books in a totalitarian state that banishes books and self expression.

    Nomination Phase is still open until this Sunday. Posted the list of what has been already nominated on the previous page, but there are loads of others that could still be included.

    After that, people can then start sending in their rankings to me, through to the following Sunday. :50:

    Additionally, before this gets out of hand though, am going to say, movies based on comics, and yes, some of them are sci fi, will be done seperate rankdown down the line for all of those MCU, DCEU, X-Men & beyond etc.

    @Fontaine yeah I have "The Day after Roswell" and "Communion" but I wouldn't buy a book from Nick Pope he's been a government denier for years telling us we were all seeing things and it's clouds etc, usual pish, then suddenly as soon as he retires ohh it's all true here's some books I've written like he's suddenly jumping on the bandwagon just to make money.
    There's quite a few people with a similar opinion of him.
    Still there's plenty of good books out there for sure, even some stuff that's really difficult to get your head round it seems so far out there.
    Like the Vril society involving * germany
    The US SSP's (Secret Space Programs) including the Solar Warden Program where the US Navy has a fleet of 1 to 3KM long spaceships helped designed by the Nordics.
    Corey Goode's 20 years and back experiences to name a few.

    100% get where you're coming from re: Pope but I try to keep an open mind with the sources.
    Checked out the Vril stuff there quickly as you brought it up and i'm going to need some convincing here. Written in 1871? Thats going to fry my head just trying to make head or tails of the writing style never mind the contents.

    Noticed noone has mentioned the Disney SW trilogy - and they are not great but suppose should at least mention the first of them should be mentioned, even if it is just a reboot of the original, but the less said about the subsequent films the better...
