  • I have to agree with everyone who commented above me. This film was showing the typical themes of SciFi and how predictable the elements of the genre are. Also, I agree with Limairy when she said the human species is driven by love and sex; the film was very sexual and it’s showing how things were back then – for many females to get a lead role it…[Read more]

  • A reality show about fighting to the death, it’s kind of like the Romans. The Hunger Games is a great way to depict the wealthy vs the poor, much like reality shows. You get a bunch of young people with nothing else to live for and just throw them together to see who wins. I agree that being a series of novels first helped this franchise, but you…[Read more]

  • A film that if I watched it without looking for the Science Fictions themes, I would never find it. Seeking a Friend for the End of the World is a romantic comedy on the surface but if you look hard into you can find some typical SciFi themes. I actually liked the idea of the world ending and the attempts to save it failed, so there’s nothing…[Read more]

  • Time travel always has confused me, all the rules and paradoxes… but, it’s one of the most interesting topic to think about. I like the idea of thinking of the past being considered time travel or flying in a plane to a different time zone. The Flash has a story called Flashpoint that is about traveling through time and changing something…[Read more]

  • Post apocalyptic films show the persistence of the human race as even after what is supposed to be the complete end in the apocalypse, humans somehow find a way to survive. Just the idea of surviving the end shows how humans believe we will survive through anything.
    Mad Max Fury Road shows the anti-hero turned hero world we live in, the person…[Read more]

  • In “The Fly” Andre doesn’t seem like your typical Science Fiction mad scientist looking to play God, but instead he mentions one of his motives is to help humanity – stating that his invention could potentially end world hunger. The mad scientist part comes after he attempts to teleport his cat but turning it into nothing, this drives him to…[Read more]

  • God and science aren’t known for being the best of friends, but science fiction movies have many ties to religion that I didn’t expect to see. At the end of this when they were in the church and the alien spacecraft came crashing down I was in shock thinking no way did a prayer bring that down, but thankfully their was another reason (something in…[Read more]

  • Completely agree with Chandra, this movie was mind blowingly amazing. Every time I thought I had it figured out, it took another unexpected turn and I was very satisfied with the results. The idea of a hard science fiction movie is such an amazing world that film makers should dive into, everything happened for a reason and their was an…[Read more]

  • This is the first time I watched Metropolis and although it was a marathon of a movie, it had a few points that wake you up. The best of these moments was the transfer scene of Maria to the robot. This scene showed advancements of special effects that I did not expect to see in this film and I was impressed – reminding me of Frankenstein coming…[Read more]

  • Hon Solo is a droid! That’s all I could think about while watching this film. I enjoyed Blade Runner, it was an interesting film that constantly made you think and the idea of Blade Runners going around looking for Replicants is an exciting premise. The character of Deckard showed an attitude of a human that just doesn’t care about anything or he…[Read more]

  • I agree with my classmates on this one, it was hard to watch and it felt like it would never end. Although I did not enjoy the film as much as I wished I would have, I have to say Wells is a visionary and he had an eye of the future that not many people had. Trying to shine some positivity onto this, the message of the film being the dangers of…[Read more]

  • Very good tribute to the legendary Starman! If anyone is interested in the fantasy world “Labyrinth” is a fantastic movie! Bowie plays the Goblin King in this Jim Henson musical film and does a legendary job doing so.
