Dune has showed up on my Netflix suggestions so many times that I gave in and watched it. I was in for a heck of a show. It was confusing, mesmerizing, captivating, and it took me a little while to process what I just watched by the end of the movie. I have to remember that this movie had come out in 1984 so I can't really judge it to the levels of special effects we have today.
In the Uptown Theatre, Washington D.C on the 2nd of April, 1968 - Stanley Kubrick premiered the epic space film, "2001:A Space Odyssey" (1968). It is clear that this film is one of the greatest films ever made with most people citing it as one of the greatest examples of the Greek/Shakespearean Tragedy in space. It is a brilliant film and a true cinematic experience to watch. Personally, I've seen it a few times and even after watching it a few times, it is still just as overwhelming as it has always been.
For years, it has been considered as the epitome of Sci-Fi/Epic Drama and has won multiple accolades in the legacy of its release. At 52 years since it was first seen by a mass audience, there are many things in this era still that we can learn from "2001: A Space Odyssey" (1968). I have watched this film twice over the past ten to fifteen years and I want to show you why.
From the trailer I saw on Netflix L'ascension or The Climb seemed like a fun movie to watch. I needed something kind of mellow because I've been watching a lot of intense sci-fi movies. This movie was exactly what I needed.
I was perusing the Netflix library for some Sci-Fi movies and the title Psychokinesis showed up. The trailer looked pretty funny but it was all in Korean. Whatever. I thought I'd give it a try anyways and I'm actually really happy I gave it a chance.
This whole weekend I've been binging on what Netflix has to offer in terms of science fiction movies. I'm actually surprised at the amount of films they had available. Especially since they were interesting concepts of movies.
I'm in the science fiction phase of the lock down right now. I'm pretty much watching all of the Netflix sci-fi movies. They have some interesting ideas that you can tell other big movie makers didn't want to risk money on. See You Yesterday is a daring movie and for the most part fairly fun. The only thing I had against this movie was the ending.
I don't know what's up with my selection of films lately but I'm really getting into Science Fiction movies. I looked at the description and watched the trailer for Extinction and I got a little excited. This movie had come out back in 2018 but without too much hype surrounding it. I wasn't too sure about this movie as the last Netflix exclusive movie that I watched, "This is How it Ends" was kind of a let down.
“It’s a masterpiece!” My film buff friend exclaimed with a face of pure indignation. “How can you not like it?” he asked utterly perplexed.
Released: 6th September 2019 (TIFF, just released on Netflix)
Crimes Against the Future started off as a documentary, wich can only do so much. So an Action Toolkit was created.
