Science-fiction Films That Changed the World

14 September 2010 10:01 PM, PDT | AMC Filmcritic's John Scalzi on Scifi | See recent AMC Filmcritic's John Scalzi on Scifi news »

Oy, been back from Australia for nearly a week and I'm still jet-lagged and groggy. So naturally it's a perfect time to handle a deep and existential question that has come into my mailbox: Can a science fiction movie change the world? Has a science fiction movie changed the world? Whoa, dude. I'm suddenly back in my college dorm room, with the black light on, listening to Dark Side of the Moon. That's, like, heavy, man. But it's also an interesting question, although, as with so many things, we have to define our terms. "Changing the world" is a highly fungible phrase, since, if you want to get really pedantic, any action changes the world, although generally in a highly trivial or specific manner, the effects of which may not be obvious. For example, the film The Adventures of Pluto Nash is not generally considered to be a world-changing science-fiction film. »
