The latest subject of Make Me Watch It is Robinson Crusoe on Mars (1964), directed by Byron Haskin. The updated and maintained list of options for “Make Me Watch It” can be found here. You can name up to ten movies you’d like me to cover here. The series can also be found on Stitcher, on iTunes, or in a direct RSS feed.

This year’s tournament will be about finding the greatest science fiction villain in movies, television, and video games. (Comic books, novels, and fantasy characters will have their own future tournaments.) Zocalo had a great idea: you can look at the current roster here, and submit new ideas with this form. The first question is required, but all others are optional, so you can submit several at a time.

In the final round, our readers have determined that the greatest hero in screen science fiction is Jean-Luc Picard from Star Trek. I did not point out statistical upsets during the voting this time in case in biased the results, but it is interesting to compare the brackets to the order the characters fell into in round one, shown below. Note that only one of the initial “top four” actually made it into the final “top four.” In the comments, please point out the villains who should appear in our next tournament.

It took over 50 years, but this Disney classic finally got a sequel. Is it a Toy Story level sequel that easily stands beside or above the original, is it a direct to video cash grab quality sequel that never should have been made, or is it something in between?
