'Movies Like Total Recall': Dystopian Sci-Fi Classics

After the fall of fascism and the growth of communism, Hollywood was inundated with speculative sci-fi imagining how the future might look if 'The Man' got his way. Having passed many of the years these films were set in (e.g. 1984), all we can say is : 'Thank God it's not THAT bad!'

'Movies Like Solaris': Classic Existential Sci-Fi

From 'Solaris' to 'Brazil', these mind-bending sci-fi classics will leave you scratching your head, pinching your arm, and perhaps questioning your sanity. If you're looking for some high IQ sci-fi then look no further!

Webster's English Dictionary defines hard science fiction as being 'characterized by an emphasis on scientific accuracy or technical detail or both' (just kidding it's Wikipedia). So, basically sci-fi that would satisfy 'Comic Book Guy' from The Simpsons.

Stanley Kubrick Movies

A director who brought the world some of the most visually stunning and instantly recognizable films of all time, including 'A Clockwork Orange' and 'The Shining'. And also the man responsible for a 50% drop in rural Maine hotel bookings in 1980.

'Cinephiles' Delight': 70mm Masterpieces

As most Tarantino fans are aware, 'The Hateful Eight' is shot on 70mm films. What does this mean? Our hunch is, if you don't know, you won't care. As for the cinephiles who do, enjoy the best movies shot on the finest film (none of this “shot in 35 and reformatted for 70” jokery)!

Movies like Avatar: Visually Stunning Sci-Fi/ Fantasy

These movies would be worth watching even if the speakers on your TV were busted. But with films like 'Interstellar', 'Life of Pi', and 'Cloud Atlas', don't think for a moment they depend on style over substance.
