Seeking Science-Fiction Film Suggestions!!

Good afternoon, chums! Today, I’m reaching out to you sci-fi fanatics out there for some suggestions! Recently, I watched Pitch Black (2000) and it’s sequels, and then re-watched Alien (1979), and it’s put me in a gigantic mood for more sci-fi flicks! I’ll be honest, I haven’t seen as many science-fiction films as I would like and I’m quite exhilarated at the prospect of expanding my repertoire of them!

This brings me to this lovely, random post of the day. If you can, please drop some science-fiction film recommendations for me in the comments. They can be action-adventure, thriller, horror (my fave), or anything else. I’m even open to TV serial suggestions, although I’d prefer movies, if possible. Additionally, if you can, please let me know if there are any cat deaths in the movie. That’s a huge content trigger for me and I’d liked to be prepared going into it if I can.

That’s all I’ve come to ask! I’ve shared the posters for the sci-fi films that I’ve watched over the years and enjoyed (and remember, I’m sure I missed a few), to give you an idea of what I’m familiar with. I’d be super grateful for any recommendations y’all can share. They don’t have to be American or English films either. I don’t mind international titles one bit, so long as I can find a platform to access it. If/when I do reviews for the films, I’ll make sure to give you a shout-out as well. Thank you so much!!

  1. Have you come across ‘Silent Running’ (1972) before? It might suit re: space and isolation.

    Maybe also check out ‘Dark City’ from 1998 if you haven’t already seen it – the film is an interesting mix of noir & sci-fi that I really enjoyed 🙂

  2. Have you seen The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai? It’s undeniably a 1980s movie, but I still love it. John Lithgow and Peter Weller were great.

    I can’t really recommend it, but I’m glad I watched Babylon AD. Vin Diesel has some interesting ideas, and I think he’s a better actor than he gets credit for.

    The Fifth Element is my favorite Bruce Willis film. I also don’t think Milla Jovovich gets the recognition she deserves as an actor.

    The original Stargate movie reminded me of classic sci-fi films. It’s slow by today’s standards, but I really liked James Spader and Kurt Russel’s work.

    • I’ve only seen Stargate out of these, which I freaking LOVED. Big fan of the TV serials too. Pitch Black really made me interested in checking out more of Vin Diesel’s works so thanks for mentioning it here. I’ll add these to my list and see if I can hunt them down. Thank youuu.

  3. Hmm…you have my go-to films in the pictures, so I’m guessing you’ve seen them all. So, let’s get a little more obscure.

    Pandorum: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pandorum
    Poorly reviewed, but I have a soft spot for it. It has a touch of action, a dash of horror, and it’s really not all that bad at its relatively short runtime.

    Eden Log: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eden_Log
    This one’s a French release. Again, a bit horror, and had a mixed reception out in the wild.

  4. There are the pretty classic ones like Blade Runner and Blade Runner 2049 which you might have watched. I also think that you should check out Arrival as well because that is a fantastic film. Jame Cameron’s The Abyss is pretty interesting and like a precursor to a lot of things he has done afterwards. District 9 is pretty solid as well. Oh, Dredd if you haven’t checked that one out too because that one is a blast.

    I’m sorry if you have watched all of these already.

      • Do you mind if I second Forbidden Planet? I’ve begun to think of it as a more realistic version of Star Trek Original Series!

        Seeing Leslie Nielsen in a well-acted dramatic role is just the start of this movie’s coolness.

        • Michael Rennie was ill
          The Day the Earth Stood Still
          But he told us where we stand
          And Flash Gordon was there
          In silver underwear
          Claude Rains was The Invisible Man
          Then something went wrong
          For Fay Wray and King Kong
          They got caught in a celluloid jam
          Then at a deadly pace
          It Came From Outer Space
          And this is how the message ran…

          Science fiction (ooh ooh ooh) double feature
          Doctor X (ooh ooh ooh) will build a creature
          See androids fighting (ooh ooh ooh) Brad and Janet
          Anne Francis stars in (ooh ooh ooh) Forbidden Planet
          Wo oh oh oh oh oh
          At the late night, double feature, picture show

          I knew Leo G. Carroll
          Was over a barrel
          When Tarantula took to the hills
          And I really got hot
          When I saw Janette Scott
          Fight a Triffid that spits poison and kills
          Dana Andrews said prunes
          Gave him the runes
          And passing them used lots of skills
          But When Worlds Collide
          Said George Pal to his bride
          I’m gonna give you some terrible thrills

          Science fiction (ooh ooh ooh) double feature
          Doctor X (ooh ooh ooh) will build a creature
          See androids fighting (ooh ooh ooh) Brad and Janet
          Anne Francis stars in (ooh ooh ooh) Forbidden Planet
          Wo oh oh oh oh oh
          At the late night, double feature, picture show
          I wanna go – Oh oh oh oh
          To the late night, double feature, picture show
          By R.K.O. – Wo oh oh oh
          To the late night, double feature, picture show
          In the back row – Oh oh oh oh
          To the late night, double feature, picture show
