More Info

If you're interested in the future of technology, there's no better time to check out some science fiction films. This list includes everything from Spike Jonze's "Her" to Stanley Kubrick's visionary space epic. It even includes the satire "Total Recall" and O'Bannon's design work on Alien. So, what are the best science fiction movies of all time Available at Fmovies?

Spike Jonze's Her

One of the most ambitious movies of the year, Spike Jonze's Her is a beautifully crafted film that combines deep science fiction contemplation with wry humor, genuine pain, and charming revelation. Its gorgeous cinematography and subtle performances create a film that is layered and engaging, with a romantic undercurrent that blends seamlessly into the film's narrative.

The plot of Her is a fascinating mashup of science and artificial intelligence. The protagonist, Theodore Twombly, is a writer for a website. His divorce from Catherine has left him despondent, and his relationship with his wife has cooled down to nothing more than occasional phone calls. But Samantha, his virtual assistant, is more than just a personal computer. She's a work of computer science, and she's a perfect match for Joaquin Phoenix's sensitive, sultry voice.

Kubrick's visionary space epic

Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey is an evocative film that's a must-see for any sci-fi fan. Set on the moon, this space epic follows two men as they attempt to survive the ravages of an enemy air raid in 1940. The slow burn is interrupted by moments of violence and fear, but the movie's ambiguous ending leaves no room for doubt.

Verhoeven's satire Total Recall

If you love Arnold Schwarzenegger and sci-fi, Total Recall may be just what you're looking for. This 1980's satire stars the former Dirty Harry star in cartoonish violence, with the cutting-edge special effects and one-liners that made him a dad joke. Quaid's deadpan after shooting Lori in the head is one of the many hilarious moments. The film also features futuristic innovations such as a walk-through X-ray scanner, driverless Johnnycabs, and a three-breasted mutant call girl.

The film was inspired by Philip K. Dick's short story We Can Remember It For You Wholesale. The plot is a little too bland, but it has a few surprises for science-fiction fans. A lot of Verhoeven's other films are just remakes, and this one is no different. While it may not have the same impact as the 1990 sci-fi classic, it is still a sci-fi classic worth watching.

O'Bannon's design style for Alien

O'Bannon, who has worked on numerous projects, honed his craft as a director and writer. He has worked on projects that have grossed more than $1 billion for Hollywood, including the classic Alien. He also wrote Total Recall and Lifeforce. He adapted a story by Philip K. Dick into the cult classic Screamers. He also created a number of video games, including the popular Alien franchise.

In Dark Star, Carpenter's directorial debut, O'Bannon developed the same concept for the Alien film. The director's visual effects supervisor worked on the alien in that film, which looks remarkably real. O'Bannon imagined a movie with similar visual elements to the films The Thing from Another World and Planet of the Vampires. O'Bannon's style influenced the look of the film and its monsters.
