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.
Ad Astra didn't seem that interesting in its trailer. It basically explained to us that there's an astronaut that's sent on a mission to find his long lost father. What I didn't realize is that they wanted to keep much of the details under wraps because there's so much more to this movie than just that. There's the journey of his self discovery. It's an interesting story but not exactly a movie for everyone.
For ages, the existence of aliens has been a highly debated topic, within the scientific community and beyond. Personally, I'm a bit ambivalent about the possibility. While I'm sure there are plenty of things out there in the universe that we don't know about yet, the idea of aliens still rubs me as too far-fetched to be a reality. But despite my viewpoint, I decided to give director Darcy Weir's Beyond The Spectrum series a watch by checking out the four documentaries (all of which are currently available to watch on Tubi) that center on the topic of aliens. Let's see if Weir can make a believer out of me!
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.
