'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.
Space operas are sweeping epics set far, far away (although not always long ago), featuring larger than life villains, romantic subplots, and the obligatory intergalactic hero. Adventure doesn't get more lighthearted and enjoyable than this - so pick one of these space opera classics from before 1990 and feel the force! Also, make sure to celebrate Star Wars Day on May 4th.
