Grant Hicks is a painter with a slight difference, he paints Cosmic Ceilings, scenes from outer space onto mainly bedroom ceilings.

Using specialist glow paint (which is actually invisible during the day) he creates stars, shooting stars, blackholes and other such images. These ceilings can only be seen in the dark. They look truly amazing as they have a 3D effect, and you feel as though you are actually looking up to the stars.

He can also do themed ceilings such as Star Wars, Star Trek, Doctor Who and fantasy scenes (images of which you can see below).

He also trains people to do this for a living as self-employed ‘Startists’.

IMDB Top 50 SciFi Movies

Internet Movie Database Users continuously Vote For The All-Time Top Fifty Science Fiction Movies

Interestingly enough, they calculate the top 50 (and bottom 10) using a formula based on ratings from their site, rather than just a straight vote from a list of movies.

Weighted rating (WR) = (v ÷ (v+m)) × R + (m ÷ (v+m)) × C

R = average for the movie (mean) = (Rating)
v = number of votes for the movie = (votes)
m = minimum votes required to be listed in the Top 50 (currently 1000)
C = the mean vote across the whole report (currently 6.6)

For the Top 50, only votes from regular voters are considered. In order to appear in the Bottom 10 Titles chart the title must have received at least 50 votes.

The only problem I can see is that some of the films are suspiciously un-scifi: Wallace & Grommit In The Curse of the Were-Rabbit? (That’s probably because they just happen to be put into the genre of ’scifi’ and lots of people voted highly.)

Nevertheless, some of the movies on the list are worthy of a place: Bladerunner, StarWars, Donnie Darko and Brazil to name but a few.

And no Star Trek movies to be seen anywhere. (That’s a positive in my opinion). But where’s Cube and Cube Zero?

Note that the page is dynamic; as more people vote and movies are added, the list might, and probably will, change.

The bottom 10 scifi movies list is worth looking at too.
