Sci Fi Movies



  • Friday afternoon & time to kill time.

    I love sci fi flicks. I saw Close Encounters of the 3rd Kind at the drive in in the 70s and lots of other stuff in between.

    Never really liked that Star Wars stuff with characters that were obviously just humans with stupid make up & costumes, the only good Star Wars movie was the original IMO.

    Thunderbirds is awesome and is one of the great originals.

    Can anyone suggest any good SciFi movies I can check out????????????

    Doctor Who (not a movie but still good), Stargate (has movies), and Battlestar Galactica (not just a TV series! 😛 )

    ever seen the original blade runner? I've not it, but may have to as I want to see blade runner 2 or whatever it's called.

    there's a good indie movie called Moon I watched a few years ago.

    My favourite SciFi film ever.



  • Ex Machina was good

    Haven't seen this yet, it's on the list.

    Arrival wasn't bad recently. Another classic IMO was/is Contact

    There's also a movie called 'The Arrival' starring Charlie Sheen <<--- I know, I know-->>.

    It was acutally pretty good



  • Sunshine, Existenz, Dark City, Splice, The Thing, Escape from NY, THX 1138, A Clockwork Orange, Brazil, Source Code, District 9, Solaris - the original one, Interstellar, Gravity, 2001 Space Odyssey, Total Recall - original, remake is just bad.
