After a week off, Top 10 lists return with the best movies of one of my favorite actors, Sam Jackson. This isn’t totally random; it is because of his role in the Tarzan movie that came out last week, which is itself kind of random.  This was actually a tougher list than I expected it to be and actually has a surprise or two in it.

Top 10 lists will be a list of 10 movies that will be published once a week and will either have to do with a movie coming out that week or just what I want to do at the time. 

Well it’s finally Star Wars week guys, so expect a bunch of Star Wars related content over the next few days.  I’m kicking it off with my Top 10 Sci-fi movies.  I’ve never really considered myself a big science fiction fan, but after making this list I’m reconsidering that self-evaluation.  This is one of the hardest lists I’ve put together so far.  That’s why there are so many honorable mentions.  That list is long but distinguished (high five to anyone who can complete the Top Gun quote in the comments).  Qualifiers for this week: Because I didn’t want to take up 7 of my spots with 3 Star Wars movies, 2 Alien movies, and 2 Terminator movies, I am including whole series in one spot.  It’s kind of cheating I know, but it’s my list.  Also, I’m leaving out superhero movies and more fantasy-related movies.  Those are lists for another time.  Let’s get to this one.

In honor of the (hopefully) last Hunger Games movie coming out this weekend, I’m doing this week’s Top 10 list on movies that were based in some capacity off books.  There were a couple qualifiers.  I am forcing myself to only choose movies that I knew were based on books at the time of watching them, or shortly thereafter.  So as much as I’d like to put Die Hard on the top of a list for like the fourth time, I didn’t know it was based on a book until fairly recently, far after I had originally seen it.  I am not, however, forcing myself to pick movies based on books I have read because at that point, the list would end up being approximately 2 movies. Anyway, let’s get to my picks.
