Sci-fi is already the most "out there" genre, so what happens when experimental directors take its themes and run with them? Check out this collection of the very best boundary pushing science-fiction films and find out for yourself. Just don't say we didn't warn you!
Only the very best Sci-Fi foreign cinema has to offer, often woefully underappreciated by American audiences. French, Chinese, Swiss, and Scandinavian films all make an appearance on this collection of films, perfect for sci-fi lovers looking for something off the beaten track.
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.
'A New Hope', 'Solaris', and oh - did we mention 'Soylent Green'; enjoy this collection of the very best science-fiction (hard, soft, and pliable) that the 1970s has to offer. Watch a few of these films and you may start agreeing with us that here the genre reached its peak.
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.
