The Top Ten Sci-Fi Films That Never Existed

David Wong lists the top 10 Sci-Fi films that never existed. I love his assessment of the George Lucas of the Star Wars prequels: “It was an angsty bastard who introduced Han Solo to the world by showing him ruthlessly blowing the face off a mafia bill collector, shooting him from under the table and then cooly walking away and paying his tab. Lucas revealed Obi-Wan Kenobi to us by showing him ending a bar fight by slicing a guy’s arm off. Lucas didn’t flinch at the thought of blowing up the peaceful planet of Alderaan and killing billions.” And a Doom movie directed by Paul Verhoeven? Wong has me sold. (Note: Some of the screen caps in the article are a bit on the graphic side.)
