Team Interns , 17 Jan 2019


After a hectic day out, getting cosy in bed with some popcorn and a killer sci-fi movie is all you need sometimes. Sci-fi movies are full of action and technology. They help us envision a world where robots live among us, and space travel is easy. A good sci-fi movie should be exciting with a good plot and excellent actors. Here are some of our top picks for sci-fi movies we think you’ll love.

1. Interstellar


Interstellar is one of the best sci-fi movies ever made and has won numerous awards. This movie will take you on a journey full of space travel, alternate timelines, personal sacrifice and most of all, hope. The film is set in a dystopian society where a group of astronauts travel to space in an attempt to save humanity. The movie is incredibly complex but will definitely blow your mind in the end.

2. Black Mirror: Bandersnatch


For those who believe in all the simulation conspiracy theories, this movie will definitely freak you out. The Netflix movie is based off the show Black Mirror and is interactive in nature. This means that the viewer decides how the next scene will pan out and will decide the same when the choices appear on the screen. Pretty cool, right? As all the viewers make their own choices, the movie has 5 different endings that depend on the choices that were made by you throughout the film.

3. The Star Wars Series


The Star Wars movie franchise has been iconic in the film industry right from its inception and has also gathered a huge fan base. All their movies may have incredibly hyped, but that is justified as they are all amazingly well written and executed. If you haven’t already seen the series, there are currently 8 episodes that are out right now for you to binge on!

Today’s #movienight goes to “Hollow Man” Directed by Paul Verhoeven in 2000. This movie is inspired by the H.G. Wells novel “The Invisible Man.” This movie is about a government scientist named Dr. Sebastian Cane and his team of scientists who have created a serum that can render a subject invisible. After testing was successful with lab animals, Sebastian decides to try the serum on himself. After successfully becoming invisible and doing multiple tests and research, Sebastian and the team try to bring him back from invisibility but fail. This drives the doctor to insanity and causes him to kill and act erratically. I’ve seen this movie a bunch of times throughout the years. It’s a very interesting movie and definitely makes people think what they would do if they were invisible, would you help people or use it to your advantage and do unethical things. Great movie without a dull moment and excellent special effects for the time the film was created. This film received negative reviews although it made $190.2 million worldwide with a $95 million dollar budget .🎥🎞🎟🎬👍🏻(Rating 7.5/10) #movies #film #movie #films #dvd #dvdcollector #dvdcollection #movietime #filmgeek #filmaddiction #filmisnotdead #moviescenes #movietime🎬 #filming #bluray #bluraycollector #bluraycollection #moviestar #2000 #hollowman #kevinbacon
