I need a website that can give me a list of every SciFi movie released in a particular time period and within a specific geographic area. It must show only a list of names, no other information, but a link to other information would be nice.

For example I'd like to know every SciFi movie released in the last 5 years in the U.S.
I'm also interested in narrowing it down to fantasy movies, much older range of years like the 70's and ones released by specific countries like South Korea.

If anyone could help with this I'd be forever grateful.

This Wikipedia entry might be a good start.

There is a country column but not a way to just group by country.

Thanks a bunch. That seems like it will do the job, for the time being.
I'm really looking for something as versatile as ANN's Encyclopedia (but for SciFi movies instead of anime), where you can limit your search to genre or specific release years or both.
So I'm still looking, hoping to find something even better.

Well there's more output in the result than you really want, not just a simple list, but if you search Sci Fi on IMDB by year, then refine that to sort by US Box Office decending, then movies that appeared in theaters will pop to the top. Not sure if that get you everything that exists though, like independents, direct to disk, etc might get buried or not appear at all...
