For he is the Kwisatz Haderach!

Back in the spring of 2015 Jordan Hoffman compiled his list of the 100 Best Sci Fi Movies of All Time - I'm no aficionado on this subject so take my thoughts on science fiction with due skepticism but I do have a major problem with this list (2 problems in fact). The films he chose are, by and large, pretty good and with 100 you know there's going to be a few dogs that make the list (more than a few really) so I'm not going to get all "that's not Sci Fi" on the specific choices. From the 100 he listed I'd put the following in my top 10

10. 1984
9. The Fountain
8. Sleeper
7. A Clockwork Orange
6. Planet of the Apes
4. Rollerball
3. 2001: A Space Odyssey
2. Metropolis

But this is where I must voice serious concern with the list of 100 sci fi films that does not include:

#5 Dune - David Lynch's amazing attempt to bring an absolute classic to the screen - flawed though it might be, it's still inspiring and mind blowing.

#1 Zardoz - Where the heck is Zardoz man? How can you have a list of 100 movies and not include this prescient John Boorman masterpiece somewhere? Zed is out their Jordan and he's coming to destroy your Tabernacle so prepair for your sweet release.
