Post Predestination Alive for 2016 Hugos?
Predestination was not nominated for a Hugo this year. But because there is some confusion about its release date and eligibility, some folks are proposing to have it held over for eligibility next year as well.

According to the comments on , the extension for Predestination has passed. It would be good to see this nominated next year, but the feature film competition is going to be fierce.

It did not make the cut. Of the five that did (Avengers: Age of Ultron, Ex Machina, Mad Max: Fury Road, The Martian,
Star Wars: The Force Awakens), I only saw The Martian and SW:TFA, and would support The Martian as the best SF movie I've seen in a long time (although I don't think suit pressure would actually shoot Matt Damon as fast as the filmmakers seemed to think).

Bah. Predestination is the best re-creation of any Golden Era story, period. Philistines.

"'All You Zombies'" belongs to the family of Heinlein Stories With Weirdly-Punctuated Titles, of which there are many. Truly he was Grand Master of the Em-Dash—

BillMullins, you forgot

Starship Troopers (really a parody of the novel)

I have to agree with PeterScott Predestination is the best Golden Age film adaptation I've seen, too.

I've seen A Sound of Thunder, but only on the tube, where it may have been brutally cut to fit the time slot. In that format, I found a relatively straightforward story rendered almost incoherent. Maybe the full movie is better.

If you do include Something Wicked This Way Comes, I have problems with the script. Vast swaths of the dialogue were pure Bradbury, and while they "read" right on the page, they just don't "speak" right on the screen. For a while, we watched it every Halloween. I got to cringing. When our son got old enough to cringe, too, we retired that tradition.

And 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) is only very loosely based on "The Sentinel" (1948).
