Genetic modification is the foundation of evolution. All species change and are altered because the planet is exposed to radiation. Radiation causes DNA to break down; the damage is repaired and is often followed by mutation. This mutation is what creates variety in individual species and the world as a whole. Genetic modification movies have reached across all sub-genres including comedy, horror, thriller, and mystery; but they will always belong under the heading of science fiction. Science is not at the same level that is portrayed in these films, giving them a somewhat magical element that viewers are more than ready to embrace. From Sharktopus to X-Men, here are our top genetic modification movies.
Time: the final frontier. These are the voyages of storytellers throughout the mysteries of time, exploring how to break through its apparently-rigid barriers and break its (apparently equally rigid) rules. But when you think about it, we're all traveling through time together—in what we can perceive as forward. Not all of us pass through at the same subjective rate, of course, because there are teeny-tiny relativistic effects at work, which have to do with our relative motions.
