We’ve partnered up with Hoyts Cinemas to poll cinema-loving Kiwis on the big questions that define our country’s tastes in movies. Last month’s poll was: What is the best sci-fi comedy ever?
The resulting Top 10 is as follows, along with quotes from fellow Flicksters about why they voted for that film.
10. Time Bandits
“Classic, Monty Python-esque romp through the ages!” – Sarah H.
“The final in the Cornetto Trilogy is in my opinion the best; it’s layered, suspenseful, creative, heartfelt, whilst not forgetting to be absolutely bloody hilarious!” – Levi J.
“Defined my early teenage years. I knew everyword of this film. Defined ’80s comedy for me.” – Adrian P.
“Star Wars is the best sci-fi film of all time and Mel Brooks is the king of comedy… it was a perfect marriage!” – Mark W.
6. Galaxy Quest
“Snape with a snail on his head – what could be better!?” – Sarah T.
5. Mars Attacks
“Mars Attacks is funny and has a good story line. Have seen it a few times and always makes me laugh.” – Koia M.
“Hilariously funny and deadpan.Excellent body language of the librarian and main actors.” – Rosemary C.
3. Men in Black
“Great cast of aliens and great rapport between Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith.” – Kwan
“How can this poll not be won by ‘Back to the Future’? One of the best to ever come out of Hollywood full stop.” – Daniel
“It had everything you could possibly need. Excitement, humor, Chris, and Groot.” – Janine O.
