We try to answer some of your regular questions . .
Hey, don’t I know you guys from somewhere?
The Sci-Fi Movie Page has been around since
September 1997 when it began life on a server
belonging to the University of Warwick. Since those
dark days in which university servers were the only
place to get web space, the site has moved around from
one free service such as xoom.com and Geocities to the
next until we finally got our own URL in 2004.
Why is there so much crap on SyFy?
We don't know.
We are not affiliated with the Sci-Fi Channel in any
way whatsoever - but if we got a penny for every
e-mail we got confusing us for SyFy we'd be rich.
Well, not rich exactly, but better off . . .
You didn’t like [insert movie title]! Don’t you
like any movies at all!
Seriously though, we do pride ourselves on being as
scrupulously honest as possible. If we like something,
we’ll tell you. If we don’t, you’ll get to hear about
it too. If it wasn’t the slogan of a now sadly
defunct print sci-fi magazine (Sci-Fi Universe) our
slogan too would have been: “The fan site for fans
with a life.” Being a cowardly and superstitious lot
we don’t want to tempt the fates into repeating
history though . . .
Point is, we believe that there can be more to science
fiction than just spaceships and stuff blowing up real
good, which is why we like Children of Men so much . .
Some of the reviews don’t have an author listed!
Who wrote them?
That’ll be our highly estimable webmaster and owner,
James O’Ehley. (Note the copyright disclaimer at the
bottom of all our pages.)
Why is [insert movie title] listed! Isn’t this
supposed to be a science fiction site!?
Yes, it is. But it has always been our policy to
feature titles that would be of interest to science
The French call it the “Fantastique”
which comes down to sci-fi, fantasy and horror. For
good measure we’ve also thrown in some amine and cult
TV as well! But our chief focus is on science fiction
so don’t worry about us featuring any war dramas or rom-coms here soon. Unless they have robots or
exploding spaceships of course . . .
Why isn’t [insert movie title] here? Do you only
feature blockbuster movies?
If you count Zontar – The Thing
from Venus as a blockbuster, then yes . . .
Seriously though, if you want us to review a
particular title, then feel free to send us your
I have a scoop for you!
Great! Send it along to
I have directed or produced a small indie
sci-fi/fantasy/horror movie. Will you review it for
Sure we will.
The Sci-Fi Movie Page considers itself
to be friends of indie genre cinema and gets loads of
movies to review. Please keep in mind that (a) we
reserve the right not to review or feature particular
titles and (b) once we have posted a title you have
sent us, we WILL send you the URL in question. You can
find our mailing address here.
Some pages won’t load!
We’ve recently undergone an extensive redesign. E-mail
us if you come across dead links or pages that look
I’d like to write for The Sci-Fi Movie Page!
We’re always keen on taking on new writers. When you
mail us, however be sure to send us any URLs of where
your work has appeared or examples of your work.
The Sci-Fi Movie Page seems to be very U.S. centric
. . .
About 70 % of all our visitors are from the States,
which is why we stick to U.S. movie and DVD release
dates. And spelling.
Are you from the States?
We’re an international bunch – with our “headquarters”
in South Africa and freelancers and a postal address
in the States.
