Reviewing the best science fiction movies from the past, present, and future.
Well, you couldn't ask for a better movie than The Midnight Sky in these our Covid-ridden times. An Earth, in the year 2049, in even far worse shape than ours. Just about everyone on the planet dead, due to some kind of planet-wide catastrophe. A spaceship returning home to Earth from a habitable moon of Jupiter, unaware of what they are returning to. A very sick scientist on Earth, desperately marshalling his last energies to contact them, and tell the ship to turn around.
Immortality via uploaded minds into computer systems has been a staple of science fiction for decades. It's rarely done as well on the screen as it is Black Box, on Amazon Prime Video since October.
Advanced robotic technology has been featured in movies for years. And more recently, the enigmatic and sort of unfathomable consciousness living in "The Cloud", the internet, the collective data that we humans have amassed on the electronic plane.
Released in 1982, three years after Ridley Scott's monumental sci-fi classic 'Alien', 'Blade Runner' is, without a doubt, one of the most popular and influential science-fiction films ever made - but it wasn't always seen as such.
Frankenstein Unbound, where have you been all my life? How have I gone 30 years without experiencing your glorious insanity? Frankenstein Unbound is a 1990 sci-fi-time travel-horror movie from the gloriously diseased mind of Roger Corman. The film stars John Hurt as Buchanan, a modern day science millionaire who accidentally destroys time, leaving time unbound, if only for him and his future car. What? That's the plot!
In this article, we will be looking at 2019’s book “1001 Movies to See Before You Die” and going through each film in a random order that I have chosen. We will be looking at what constitutes this film to be on the list and whether I think this film deserves to be here at all. I want to make perfectly clear that I won’t be revealing details from this book such as analyses by film reporters who have written about the film in question, so if you want the book itself you’ll have to buy it. But I will be covering the book’s suggestions on which films should be your top priority. I wouldn’t doubt for a second that everyone reading this article has probably watched many of these movies anyway. But we are just here to have a bit of fun. We’re going to not just look at whether it should be on this list but we’re also going to look at why the film has such a legacy at all. Remember, this is the 2019 version of the book and so, films like “Joker” will not be featured in this book and any film that came out in 2020 (and if we get there, in 2021). So strap in and if you have your own suggestions then don’t hesitate to email me using the address in my bio. Let’s get on with it then.
12 Monkeys came out back in 1995 and still this movie holds strong today. There are a lot of outdated ways of storytelling and whatnot but for the most part it tells a pretty interesting story that will have you questioning yourself afterwards. It's been a while since I watched a more thought provoking movie and this was pretty relevant to today as it deals with a global pandemic in the future.
It’s incredibly hard to imagine that four adults … … and a dog! … four adults and a dog simply vanished in the course of an hour.
Zardoz speaks to you..... The Gun is Good, The Penis is Evil I now worship Zardoz. There is no review, there is only Zardoz. He is everything. He is your god. He is the title of a bloody bad movie.
There are numerous references to the life and work of Nikola Tesla all over the pop culture landscape. Whether directors are portraying Tesla’s life caught between the twin towers of Edison and Westinghouse, The Current War, or comic book writers are having Tesla fight Superman, it’s fair to say that Tesla’s work captured many an imagination. Director Michael Almereyda is merely the latest in a long line who fancied telling Tesla’s tale.
Vivarium already looks weird in the trailers but that's what kind of attracted me to this movie. It looked totally strange and yet very intriguing and that's really how the movie plays. The movie plays around with concepts and makes you question what you watched by the end of the movie. There's a lot of ways to interpret this movie so here's my take.
Having previously watched Darcy Weir's Beyond The Spectrum, I had already been introduced to some aspects of the Ufology community that were previously unknown to me. Thus, many of the topics covered in J. Horton's documentary I Want to Believe were familiar. With Beyond The Spectrum having already piqued my curiosity in regards to Ufology and the possibility that we aren't alone in this universe, I Want to Believe elaborates on many of the topics discussed within Weir's docuseries. And while it has its share of points where audience interest might begin to fade, I Want to Believe manages to avoid hitting as many slow spells as Beyond The Spectrum.
