I am looking for information on SF movie funerals and mourning rites. Do you know where I can find information or examples? From SF Movie Explorers: Fictional though our beloved on-screen characters maybe, when they die it is a sad event and we feel compelled to mourn their passing. Movie funerals render the same sense of completion that we seek in real life. Science fiction movies go one step further and imagine what the last farewell might look…

Short science fiction movies are a great way to get your minimal daily SF movie dosage when you do not have the time to treat yourself to a feature SF film. Considering the limited time, 5-30 (max 40) minutes, they accomplish so much. They sizzle with interesting ideas, stir up our imagination, make us laugh, cry, or jump with joy, leave us dazzled with special effects, and, sometimes, their impact is greater than that of their bigger…

Can anyone help me with some suggestions for Science Fiction films that have sculpture/sculptures in them. So far I have Logan’s Run, The Damned, and The Hunger Games but am looking for as many as possible. Thanks From SF Movie Explorers: Looking for sculptures in science fiction movies is an exciting treasure hunt as they are generally featured just in a scene or two. Most of them add to the visuals and overall atmosphere in…

Andrei Tarkovsky, director of Stalker, wasn’t exactly what you’d call a genre author, though he did try his hand at a science fiction movie twice, and both times the results were classic, first being Solaris and second the movie I’m about to review now.

Thought-provoking and poignant, the movie Solaris by the Russian director Andrei Tarkovsky revolves around the tough old problem: how can we humans, hampered by the limitations of our nature that we are, ever understand a vastly superior alien intelligence?

What is post-apocalypse in science fiction movies about? The simplest answer would be, it’s about… What Comes After The End Of The World As We Know It. A cataclysmic disaster – which can come in many forms – has already taken place, the human civilization lies in ruins, so what do we do now? Suffice to say, the end of the world brings out the worst (more likely) and the best (less likely) in people. The survivors have to resort to…

Mankind – is an ambitious, upcoming no-budget science fiction diploma movie, and a challenging project. Challenging because it forces me to live in a greenbox – instead of using a flat green screen, I painted my whole living room green! After living more than 3 months in such a room – right now I’m drying my dripping wet laundry in there! – I’m slowly but surely losing my mind! If you are asking yourself, how it…

Best SF movie reviews are those filled with love and enthusiasm for the genre, which also makes them the most enjoyable to read. It goes without saying that they are penned by SF movie fans. For who but a fan can show enough appreciation and love for science fiction movies. Just think about it, any number of professional movie critics can take a movie apart, or spill buckets of ink lecturing why such-and-such plot device can’t work, but it takes…

Denton Van Zan, the dragon slayer (no kidding) from Reign of Fire, is a quintessential antihero: cranky, driven, and tough as nails. And that pretty much sums up his gentle side. He has a beef with the dragons bordering on obsession. It makes you wonder, what could be the root of that. Personal issues? Alpha male syndrome? In his defense, the dragons in the movie have got all the bad rap – they pretty much destroyed human…
