September 2017 is SYFY's 25th anniversary, so we’re using it as an excuse to look back at the last 25 years of ALL science fiction, fantasy, and horror, a time that has seen the genres we love conquer the world of pop culture. For us, that means lists! ALL THE LISTS! We’ll be doing two “25 greatest” lists per day all throughout September, looking back at the moments, people, and characters that shaped the last quarter century. So keep checking back.
Please note: Our lists are not ranked; all items have equal standing in our brains.
What items in our lists were your favorites? Did we miss something? We welcome respectful debate and discussion, so please let us know in the comments!
Whether we're talking superheroes, monsters, or the heroes and villains who charge around with swords in fantasy epics, there's one thing genre movies have never had in short supply: capes. And thank the Maker, too, because no item of clothing is so wonderful, so dramatic, so divinely impractical. But what goes into making a cape truly great? Sometimes it's purely a matter of aesthetics. Sometimes the cape is average in terms of design, but it's so iconic that it's hard to ignore. And sometimes a truly great cape is like porn: You know it when you see it. With that in mind, let's feel the sartorial splendor of the 25 BEST GENRE MOVIE CAPES of the last 25 years.
