Over many years SFX has been asking stars from the worlds of TV, movies and celebrity about their favourite science fiction and fantasy for our My Sci-Fi column. Taking in names from Jodie Marsh to Frankie Boyle, Jimmy Greaves to Matt Lucas, all of our subjects have so far been flesh and blood – until now.
Marking a first for My Sci-Fi, we asked David, the android crew member from Prometheus , to tell us his fave examples of the genre. Will he put his own movie on the list?
Favourite SF/fantasy movies
I very much admired Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey . I find it very interesting how man imagined the relationship between human intelligence and artificial intelligence might develop. It strikes me that man has always held rather a negative view on this.
Favourite SF/fantasy TV shows
Unfortunately I have no available time to watch television shows.
Favourite SF/fantasy books
Have you read Chariots Of The Gods ? It is not science fiction but it contains some rather fascinating ideas. I also found the works of Isaac Asimov diverting, though I do wonder if his view of artificial life isn’t perhaps a little paranoid.
SF/fantasy guilty pleasures
What reason would I have to feel guilty about anything I choose to experience? Feeling shame in harmless enjoyment makes no sense to me. If I choose to read or watch something it is in order to increase my knowledge, and I see no guilt in that.
Prometheus is released on Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray and DVD on Monday 8 October by Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.
