Lists tagged 'Sci-Fi'
Ratings and the show start Oct. 10th.
So this is just a list (like all of my lists) with all the Movies of this Genre I have seen.
So I concentrate all this Movies to one list. So if you like this Genre and you look for movies of it you may not have seen yet, this list is for you.
Consider this list as a help.
But still, i list a view cliches like i always do in my lists.
And the cliches are....
- Aliens always looking for trouble, of course they are, you dont call this 'Alien Invasion Movies' for nothing
- Even if they have better weapons, better equipment, they are smarter, and so on ... they still get their ass kicked by humans at the end (yes you are right,not in all movies. but most of them)
- They have no Problems to understand our language very quickly
- They escaped from a dying world to take over the earth
- They always try to convince us that is so much better to be one of them. No fear, no feelings, no...
- In most cases, human outsiders/children/alcoholics see them first, know the danger before the others and try to convince them.
Episodes and ratings start Oct. 4, 2016

To maintain continuity of story-line and follow a chronological order, this Babylon 5 watch-list has some episodes during the five (5) seasons rearranged from the original order (broadcast order and/or DVD order). Make sure you follow only this IMDb "LIST ORDER" (not the Date added, episode sequence order, etc).
2257 - Movie: "The Gathering"
2258 - Babylon 5 Season 1 ("Signs and Portents")
2259 - Babylon 5 Season 2 ("The Coming Of Shadows")
2260 - Babylon 5 Season 3 ("Point of No Return")
2261 - Babylon 5 Season 4 ("No Surrender, No Retreat")
2262-3362 - Babylon 5 Season 4 Episode 22 "The Deconstruction of Falling Stars"
2245-2248 - Movie: "Babylon 5: In the Beginning"
2262 - Babylon 5 Season 5 ("The Wheel of Fire")
2263 - Movie: "River of Souls"
2265 - Movie: "The Legend of the Rangers"
2266 - Movie: "A Call to Arms"
2267 - Crusade Season 1
2271 - Movie: "The Lost Tales: Voices in the Dark"
2281 - Babylon 5 Season 5 Episode 24 "Sleeping in Light"
1) Babylon 5: Some episodes during the five (5) seasons are rearranged to maintain continuity of story-line. Make sure you follow this IMDb LIST ORDER.
2) s3e5 "Voices of Authority": this was originally meant to air before "Passing Through Gethsemane," but since the events of this episode tie into the beginning of "Dust to Dust," and aren't mentioned at all in "Gethsemane," the initial airing order is actually an improvement.
3) s4e22 "The Deconstruction of Falling Stars": Includes scenes of future events up to 3362+.
4) Crusade: Suggested episode order (#9, 11, 10, 2, 12, 3, 13, 5, 4, 6, 7, 1, 8) to maintain continuity of story-line.
Have ranked some of these movies in (sub)lists:
* Movies with Aliens
* Movies with A.I.
* Movies with Time Travel
* Movies with Future Societies

Well it's actually difficult to rank the movies . Every movie is a masterpiece in its own .
Go ahead and watch it all for a brain freezing experience.
A list for military science-fiction (MSF) movies and TV. However, actually pinning the definition down can be tricky.
David Weber, author of the Honor Harrington series, has defined military science-fiction as:
I would differentiate between what I consider to be "military science-fiction" and what I consider to be ... something else masquerading by the same name.
For me, military science-fiction is science-fiction which is written about a military situation with a fundamental understanding of how military lifestyles and characters differ from civilian lifestyles and characters. It is science-fiction which attempts to realistically portray the military within a science-fiction context. It is not "bug shoots." It is about human beings, and members of other species, caught up in warfare and carnage. It isn't an excuse for simplistic solutions to problems.
It's an opportunity to explore responsibilities, morality, sacrifices, and costs.
It is a strict definition and few on here tick all the boxes, but most manage to satisfy the majority of his criteria. Although it is purely subjective (and eventually comes down to "I know it when I see it"), my rule-of-thumb is along the lines of: future (or near future) conflict where some of the protagonists are members of a military organisation, possibly opposed by another such group (or hordes of alien beasties). Just don't hold me to that too strictly.

See also: Space horror, another list of mine focusing on the the crossover of horror and sci-fi in deep space (in the same way this isn't just where the war and sci-fi genres intersect). The horrors of war list is more a direct intersection of war and horror and might include some sci-fi elements where supersoldier programs go wrong. The madder superscience on my Nazi occult list could include films that come close to this list (Iron Sky perhaps?).

Question:“What is the point of large lists?” Lists like this have a "Refine list" feature (located in the right hand side of the page), which is a powerful filtering tool. With this tool one can exclude all of the films that one has already "rated"(seen), or that are in the >>>>> "watchlist", or exclude films that have been rated below lets say 6/10 stars, etc. With this list you get the ability to filter the list any way you like... to drill down on the exact content that you are looking for. All filters can be used at the same time, in any combination.
Also included are short or experimental Sci-fi films, some Sci-fi TV series and future Sci-Fi releases for 2013, 2014 and 2015. To get the most from this list, also search by 'US release date, Date added and Title A-Z. For example, upcoming releases without posters are listed at the end of list.
Will be updating as info becomes available. Enjoy.
A 'kissingbudha' original list.
Cyberpunk plots often center on a conflict among hackers, artificial intelligences, and megacorporations, and tend to be set in a near-future Earth.
Classic cyberpunk characters were marginalized, alienated loners who lived on the edge of society in generally dystopic futures where daily life was impacted by rapid technological change, an ubiquitous datasphere of computerized information, and invasive modification of the human body."
Every single one of the films on this list is a film I would personally recommend to sci-fi fans and none of them are there simply because I think they 'ought' to be included.
All films are included in year order.
Hope you all enjoy the list!
There is clearly some solid crossover with Christmas horror.

Science-fiction is my favourite genre ever since I started watching films. These are the movies I have considered to be some of the best in the science-fiction genre, yet I still have a lot to see and I await any recommendations.
I tried not to include superhero movies, mainly because they have bloomed in the last decade and formed a genre of their own and monster movies.

For Time Travel Movies, I do not believe in change the event, effectively creating a parallel universe, I'm not fan of Back to the Future and Frequency.
One thing that didn't strike me until I made this list - quite how many Star Trek films involve time travel.

Here are the Books we read:
-Rendezvous with Rama
One thing that always made me laugh about this class was the fact that all the fliers that advertised this class showed a poster for Invasion of the Saucer Men. Even though we never watched that movie in the class. I decided to list all the movies/TV shows that were watched in this class.
Although a popular theme in early science fiction but it was first laid out clearly by Charles Fort in 1919's Book of the Damned, where he said:
I think we're property.
I should say we belong to something:
That once upon a time, this earth was No-man's Land, that other worlds explored and colonized here, and fought among themselves for possession, but that now it's owned by something:
I suspect that, after all, we're useful -- that among contesting claimants, adjustment has occurred, or that something now has a legal right to us, by force, or by having paid out analogues of beads for us to former, more primitive, owners of us -- all others warned off -- that all this has been known, perhaps for ages, to certain ones upon this earth, a cult or order, members of which function like bellwethers to the rest of us, or as superior slaves or overseers, directing us in accordance with instructions received -- from Somewhere else -- in our mysterious usefulness.
But I accept that, in the past, before proprietorship was established, inhabitants of a host of other worlds have -- dropped here, hopped here, wafted, sailed, flown, motored -- walked here, for all I know -- been pulled here, been pushed; have come singly, have come in enormous numbers; have visited occasionally, have visited periodically for hunting, trading, replenishing harems, mining: have been unable to stay here, have established colonies here, have been lost here; far-advanced peoples, or things, and primitive peoples or whatever they were
The films listed here draw on such themes - aliens visiting Earth in the past, people in the "present day" (which might include the future) find evidence for that aliens have been here before, etc.
Further reading: As you are reading this I'll assume you'll be familiar with Von Danicken's theories, so for some background and balance you might want to try: Space Gods Revealed and Guardians of the Universe? by Ronald D. Story and Some Trust in Chariots! by E.W. Castle and B.B. Thiering. There is also the more recent The Cult of Alien Gods by Jason Colavito which, along the lines of a 1982 piece "Chariots of the Old Ones?" by Charles Garofalo and Robert M. Price, argues that Von Daniken's ideas are lifted from HP Lovecraft via Morning of the Magicians, so is a little more focused on how the theory developed (whereas the others focus on debunking specific claims) and I'd quibble that it downplays the influence of Fort, but it is definitely worth a read (as is Jason's blog, which does address the claims in a lot more detail). You can get a taste for the direction he goes in by reading his earlier piece "Charioteers of the Gods" If you are only going to read one then go with Story's GotU? which was published at the tail end of the first big wave of interest and he was able to bring together all the arguments for and against.

The better known PD ones are available on some dirt cheap DVDs - I have quite a few on triple feature DVDs selling for £1 and there are 50 film boxsets selling for very little, most of them are worth the 30p/20 cents you'd pay for them, although free is better.
So here you'll find some early classic sci-fi, quite a few movie/TV serials, the excellent Quatermass, a couple of Soviet sci-fi flicks, the first 4 Gamera films and other giant monster movies, as well as some of the worst films ever made, which often makes them must-sees (e.g. Plan 9 From Outer Space). This covers 10+ decades of movie-making, so there must be something in there to catch your fancy.
See also: the equivalent list for horror movies, there is some crossover with science-fiction/horror films so I've tended to include them in both. I've also started a similar list for public domain martial arts films
Further reading: If you want to track down other PD films outside of these genres then a good place to start is Wikipedia's list of public domain films in the US, which also explains the situation. Their page on public domain films has a wider focus. There are numerous sites offering public domain films but I can't really vouch for their checks (just Google them up), however, for horror there is Openflix's sci-fi & fantasy section.
* I can't check the copyright status of each one but they are pretty diligent (although not perhaps as careful as the Gutenberg Project, but they might be being over cautious some times) so there are unlikely to be any legal issues, although you'd want to check the copyright situation in your own country to be sure (America has longer copyright period than somewhere like Australia, for example. So if you go by what is available in the US you should be fine). There are other places online with PD films but IA is the most trustworthy source.
NB: IMDB does include links to the Internet Archive videos on a few entries, but not all. I'll see what I can do about fixing that at some point but feel free to scoop up the links here and add them to the entries.
Inclusion criteria: I'm mainly aiming at those films (and TV shows) that feature some unknown or lost world beneath the surface of the Earth. Tunnelling and travelling to the Earth's centre, might only count if they encounter something strange down there but may count if they

Hope you enjoy... comments are gladly welcome
Movies that explain common science issues.
All lists is include it's sequel.
I have always loved "Genre" movies, horror, SF, fantasy, and i've seen a lotttt of them over the years.
Well here are few science fiction movies that i consider lost ...well if not classics then certainly well worth a watch, there are some old, some new some foreign and some that many would not consider SF at all, but it's my own list and my own peculiar choices, i hope that you will find something that tickles your interest enough that you will find the time to give them a viewing trust me they are worth it....well without further ado here we go, in no particular order kicking off with....
PS...If anyone vaguely connected with the film industry ever reads this can we please please PLEASE have a version of Roadside Picnic hands down the greatest SF novella of all.
My ultimate personal best list of science-fiction movies.
In chronological order and purely subjective.
A salute to the mind-bending films we lust after.
The criteria for inclusion here is not merely weird imagery, but an intriguing, coherent storyline. Also, English titles only.
If you think I missed one that fits, lemme know.

The only films which would probably be in an all-time list of mine are the first two, the others I found good because they were either interesting/original, or simply fun/entertaining (which is the least I can hope for). I tried to list the movies in order of preference, but after the first ten it was difficult so don't consider it canon. The rest is more like honorable mentions. Thanks for your interest!
