Can you tell your Dagobah from your Delos and your Ming from your Morlock? Do you need help understanding 2001: A Space Odyssey? From the classic low-budget Flash Gordon tales to the slick CGI-realised world of The Matrix, science fiction films have long pushed at the boundaries of the visually and dramatically fantastic. 101 Sci-Fi Movies You Must See Before You Die is your perfect one-stop guide to them all.
Science Fiction allows every other movie genre to leap – quite literally – into another. Take a classic police chase and set it on Mars. Create a haunted house story, then add robots. Take the classic boy-meets-girl story, then make them mutants. Great sci-fi movies turn the known world on its head, play with the laws of physics and all the while hold the viewer spellbound with a gripping vision of future worlds.
With insight from critics, film historians and academics, 101 Sci-Fi Movies You Must See Before You Die applies knowledge and passion to a century of close encounters, distant planets, time travel, black holes, strange outfits, fluorescent drinks and futuristic technology. Strap yourself in: you’re set for a rocket ride to sci-fi heaven.
